After asking these questions like 3 times, He kept saying "God is good". We simply agreed with him, and every time he said that, he gave us one of those bro handshakes. He switched up his questions and then asked, "What came first? the Chicken or the egg?" I never knew the answer to this question since middle school when I first heard it. Elder Casey said the chicken, and this guy (named Ulysses, the president) laughed super loud and said "Amen!" "God is good". This was like 15 minutes long, and we tried getting a referral out of it. We decided to leave after we said goodbye. Still have no idea why he was the answer to our prayer, but we will see I guess!
Being a district leader doesn't feel any different, but I am constantly thinking of things to do for district development meeting. We live with 2 other elders, and one is another district leader in the zone.

Well, one last thing, This applies to every aspect in life. We went up to a house, and before we even could get to the porch, the three people on the porch shouted, "We don't want you here, leave!" I get it, people get to choose whatever they want to do in life, but do not just shut something down before hearing it out. That is something I have had to work on in my mission. I have always thought that my way was the high way, and that I was always right. Being with Elder Douglas, he humbled me and would call me out for thinking that. This last week I did that a few times with Elder Casey, and goes to show that I still need to get better at taking other peoples opinion, and putting my opinion out there, without being overbearing. Also, another funny thing: We always pray before
