Our intent of this blog is to share Brock's adventures in Orlando, Florida while he's on his LDS mission. Hopefully, by reading about how Brock is changing the lives of so many, and seeing Brock's own personal growth in the gospel, the people reading this blog will also be able to feel the spirit and be inspired to strengthen or develop their own testimonies of Christ and the LDS church.

Short email because it's a sand volleyball district Pday!!

Short email this week and only one picture!!!  I already gave Brock a hard time for that one.  One picture is not okay.  In his email to me, it sounded like he loved this week, but it was full of challenges too.  He told me that he thinks he’ll stay in Winter Park training Elder Wesemann for the rest of this transfer and the next one too, that will be until the end of May.  I think he’ll definitely be ready for a change by then.   

Friends and Family,

Week 4 of the transfer is finished up with the sun shining hotter then ever here in Florida (or at least that's what it feels like!) I loved this week of my mission, and have learned valuable lessons. General Conference was great, Easter was great, and my soon to be farmers tan will be great!

Monday- Just a regular P-day! Biking takes up a lot of our time for p-day between shopping, emailing, and finishing up anything else we may need to do! 

Tuesday- We visited a Less-Active member of the church in an Assisted Living home Tuesday afternoon. On our way out, a random guy in a wheelchair named Bob asked us if we were Mormon Missionaries! He didn't look very old, and seemed pretty energetic. We replied yes, and he invited us onto his patio. We sat and talked with him for a good hour and a half as he asked us all sorts of questions about the religion.  We cleared up misconceptions, answered his questions, and bore some serious testimony. Bob then broke down and informed us that his family had left him after he was in a serious car accident a little over a year ago. He broke both femurs, and now has a lot of other difficulties which refrain him from walking. He said he's been looking for God for the past year or so, and just hasn't been able to find him. After the lesson, he had a baptismal date for the 10th of May. What a miracle. It's events like this that have helped me stay out on a mission. 

Wednesday- We met with Tyrone Wednesday morning on exchanges with a Elder Fontes! He is 24 and hails from Cape Verde! How cool is that? He told me all about the little island west of the mainland. Tyrone's lesson was awesome. We had planned to talk to him about the word of wisdom. As we listed off some of the things we should not partake of he said that everyone of them were disgusting and he promised his mom to never to do any of them when he was 14 years old! Tyrone was definitely prepared for this message

Thursday- Zone Training Meeting, and a lot of trying to find more people to teach! 

Friday- Weekly Planning, and a Ward Easter Party! No I didn't get my face painted like a bunny either.

Hanging out and watching conference!
Saturday- SPIRITUAL FEAST Pt 1. Wow, General Conference this weekend was the best. I was able to take away so much iPad

Sunday- SPIRITUAL FEAST Pt 2. Happy Easter! Another great day to listen to the Prophet and Apostles speak to us. We finished up the night by visiting Tyrone and Bob to see how their Easter went! 

Sorry for the shorter email this week! Today is District P-Day and we are going to play sand volleyball! It's 82 degrees and no clouds in sight. Couldn't be much better! This week, it's predicted to get up to 93 degrees. It's starting to get hot here in the Sunshine State! Summer is right around the corner, and so is my one year mark. I do t know how, but it is. I hope everyone had a great Easter, and bass good week. Thanks again for all of the support! 
Much Love,
Elder Doman
