Two Bird Family Missionaries

     For a couple of weeks in April, the Birds had two missionaries in the field.
Jannae with one of her little patients in Nakuru, Kenya.
  Brock in Oregon, and Jannae in Kenya!  She spent 10 days in Nakuru with an international medical team representing Operation Smile.  They treated burns, performed surgeries and changed dozens of lives.  We kept Brock updated on his mom's trip halfway around the world.  Brock says he's happy his mom is now home safe and enjoyed hearing about her experiences.  Jannae heads off on an LDS humanitarian mission for the month of August to Costa Rica and Haiti.
     In the meantime, here's what's happening with Elder Bird:

     On Wednesday we talked to these crazy drunk guys.   They couldn't even walk, let alone stand! Pretty funny!  We did not have any appointments that day so it was a day of finding.  It was good.  We did have an appointment with the bishop to plan and discuss our "Invitation Sunday.  So we went through the ward list and set up appointments with less actives, part members and investigators.:)

     Thursday was busy.  We had lessons all day and then went on splits with the bishopric.  Pretty intense.  I went out with Bishop Anderson.  Everyone in the bishopric is like way old.  Kinda funny, haha!

     Friday we taught a lot of members, less actives, part members, and investigators. We taught Cole.  He is stoked he get married Wednesday and baptized on Saturday! He is a funny guy, but I gotta love him!  He is doing really well.   thursday night

    This week I had an exchange with Elder Puertas.   Really cool kid from Provo,.  He's been out more than a year and is our zone leader.  We had a lesson with Diana, a recent convert.  It was kind of funny.  Her dog wet all over her and she had to leave!

    O conducted a district meeting this week.  Everyone enjoyed it. We all went to A&W afterwards.  Then we had a meeting with a less active,recent convert named Sister Erickson.  We talked to her and she came to church on Sunday and was very grateful that we are her new missionaries!

     Saturday we had another busy day but I loved it!  After all the splits that day and night we delivered gift baskets for Easter.  We had a little party and played some basketball with some members!

     We went to church on sSunday and just took a bit of a break while I correlated with ward mission leaders, missionaries, and AP's with our numbers for the week! :)   We taught 29 lessons with a member present.  It was intense!

Love you!
Your son Elder Bird! :)
