It’s Tuesday and we were in Moses Lake! We had a full day of interviews here with most of the Moses Lake Zone. Tomorrow morning we’ll finish up here. I continue to ask each missionary, “If you could have any 3 wishes, what would they be?” I’m also taking pictures of their tracting/proselyting bags and what’s in them. I’m also asking the Elders to describe their favorite tie and the Sisters to describe their favorite dress or skirt.
Come see our day:
Elder Hamblin and Elder Coker, serving in the Moses Lake 5th WardElder Hamblin: I wish to be able to dunk a basketball. I wish for a lifetime supply of strawberry lemonade, and I wish for lots of money. My favorite tie is dark gray with shiny red pineapples.
Elder Coker: I wish to be able to grow a relationship with my Heavenly Father. I wish to help people understand the love He has for them. I wish to become something i never thought I would be so that after my mission I can can take what I learn here to help others. My favorite tie is black with maroon lines going diagonally across.
