|Yes, this is Elder Bird filling in for Santa. He helped deliver presents to boys and girls in|
one of the Bend wards.
We had a lesson with Micheal Masters who is getting baptized this weekend! He is a really cool chill guy. We have taught him all the lessons and now we're just answering his questions. He has had some concerns but everything is going smoothly and he really is loving church! :)
Speaking of teaching, as zone leader Brock has the opportunity to work with and teach district leaders and other missionaries in his zone on a weekly basis. Here he is at a recent zone leaders' conference.

elders on "real growth."
We had a lesson with Marc Miller, a recent convert to the church! Really cool guy. There daughter is super cute, about 3-year-s old. I taught her the jelly fish handshake and she always comes up to me and says, "Jelly fish!" And we do the hand shake, haha! :)
Another story, but this one is downright awkward:
We had dinner with this family. It was the most awkward dinner of my life! Everyone was quiet, the food was... well, I don't even know what it was! But their daughters we just staring at us. We would look up and they would look away! Then the 14-year-old daughter apparently thought the dog was under the counter, but nope, it was my feet. She kept trying to message them with her foot, and I was like, "Ummm.... that's not the dog, that's my feet. She was super embarrassed, but it's all okay! Hah!
Finally, we never knew Brock was a composer, choreographer and dancer.

recent zone conference. We're not sure if "We're Elders and We Know It" will hit Broadway anytime soon!
