Hey fam and friends!
This week has been a pretty good week, last p day we went and looked
at a lot of war memorials and went to the Jefferson then went and
walked around the university of Maryland for a little bit, it is
pretty awesome to have so many monuments to go look at. It’s a good
opportunity to really appreciate how blessed we are to live in the
United States of America. Not a ton happened this week but it’s been a
really fast week, we played a pretty good amount of street ball and
lately we have been playing at different courts just to get to know
different guys around the neighborhood and at one of them we met this
guy coach tony hes was like a 50 years old and he was out there just
yelling at kids what to do and like trying to coach so after we played
I asked him for some pointers and started talking to him and he claims
he used to work with KD and some other guys that played college ball.
So we played ball with him for awhile and had him coach us and then he
got pretty interested in what we do, we talked to him for almost 2
hours about the gospel and he was super into and really excited to
meet us at the courts every Wednesday so that was really good it was
cool to see how we were lead to that court that day so we could
connect with coach Tony! Tina is doing super well, when we first met
her she was smoking two packs a day and now has complete quit and it’s
been over a week since she quit and she can already feel how much
better she feels and thinks and she says she is just so much happier.
I have learned a lot from Tina about being humbled. Often the lord
gives us trials because he needs us to go in a different direction or
their is an important lesson we need to learn, so instead of really
getting caught up in why your life is hard just look for opportunities
to grow. Tina is getting baptized this week so that is super exciting
she is super excited for and it inviting everyone and took the Book of
Mormon this week in church to pass out so that is super awesome!
Everything is going good I am excited to be out here and excited for
this next week! I love you guys and hope you have a great week!
Love Elder Davidson
