Braden Update for June 17, 2013

Well This past week has been super busy and way insane how quick it has gone, I got sleep in my bed 2 nights this past week because we had tons of meetings and exchanges. But it is super fun and we are doing great. I decided to send some pictures this week so hear you go.

Hey just thought I would do some advertising for this, you all should attend, it is going to be sweet.

So just a quick email letting everyone know where I am at, my address is:
1226 Elmwood Ave
Fort Wayne, IN 46805
So that means that I am going to the new Cincinnati Ohio mission. Should be a lot of fun and interesting things going on here, I also found out that instead of going home on February 11th like they had told us back in January, I will be heading home at my original date of February 18th. So there is also a quick update on my life. Also for all of you who heard me swear that I would never drive a mini van. Guess what the zone leader car is here. A Dodge Grand caravan or a mini van. Great right? Now it is not going to be me yelling at the mini van, some one else is going to be yelling at  me in the mini van.
So there is a quick update just letting you know where I am at and stuff.

Wow what a week, it has been amazing how quick time has flown over the past little bit, I can not believe it was transfer calls again last night. The big news is that I am getting transferred, So I have to say good bye to Winchester Indiana. It will be sad to say good bye but oh well. Also I got called as a zone leader and I am super nervous about that, so it should be good to learn and to grow over a couple of transfers. I wonder what will happen. Chances are now that I am going back to the boundaries of the Indianapolis Indiana mission. So that will be nice to stay in the same mission my whole mission. Also the mission president is changing and President Cleveland will be here in less than a month. I have to pack and stuff and So I don't have tons of time, but I want to spend a little time talking about the best thing about missionary work. Miracles.
One thing I have truly been able to realize is that miracles happen all around us everyday and all we have to do is notice them, it has been a testimony builder to me, to notice each day the little miracles the Lord does for us. I would challenge each of you to try to notice the small miracles that happen every day around you, and if you think about it, no miracles is a small miracle.
Love you all and hope everything is going well for you.

Here are a couple of pictures
The first one is a robin egg we found on the street.
The next one is a drunk guy that passed out right outside his house. 
The next one is some interesting plumping done in a stair way up to an apt.
The final one is us waiting for transfer calls.
