What's up guys??
It has been another crazy week here in Hagerstown! The work has definitely been picking up for us lately! We picked up 2 new investigators, and one of them we found out the other day is the aunt of a member in our ward! Crazy "coincidence" haha! Her name is Shirley and she is 81 years old and she is the sweetest lady!
I went on exchanges with Elder Carmichael and he's sick! He is from Maine and he was a convert to the church at 18 then he moved out to Utah to go to college. He's a cool dude!
We made a deal with Diane that if we would go to her church on Sunday that she would come to ours this week. So of course we did lol!!! It was so wild!! It's called New Life World Ministries and it is a non-denominational church in downtown. We were the only white people there and everyone was super surprised to see us there but they were all really nice and welcoming. The service started off with this gospel hip hop/soul/r&b/rock concert where everyone was yelling HALLELUJAH and PRAISE THE LORD and all sorts of stuff and everyone was dancing and crying haha it was definitely not what I'm used to in church! My ears were ringing afterwards! Then they had a meet and greet period where everyone went around and hugged everyone so we got a bunch of hugs from ghetto black ladies haha! They were really nice people though! So we had a wild Sunday!
Anyways I hope y'all have a good week!
