I'm a Dad!

October 24, 2016

This week was pure insanity.
Monday was normal, after all the usual pday stuff we taught a couple less actives, then taught Charlotte and Grace (recent converts) then met with the stake high counselor over missionary work.

Tuesday we had a good district meeting, then after that had a lesson set up with a potential investigator. We get to the house and, nothing, he is not there, so we pray and ask the lord where we need to be and we feel we need to head down the hill. So when we get down there we are driving along and see someone and get out to talk to him, just to find out it's a former investigator. So we ask him when we can teach him again and he invited us over right then, so we taught K. and put him on date! Then we ate dinner, taught an excommunicated member, and a less active family that has been come back to church, then taught H.

Wednesday we started exchanges, I stayed in the area and Elder Bower came to be with me. We were able to find a new investigator which was great. We taught a couple less actives and our investigator J.

Thursday morning I had to go to a meeting so elder Bower worked with another district leaders companion while we went to the meeting, then after the excuse we taught K. again, which went pretty good. He definitely seems to be getting more enthusiastic about the gospel. We worked till dinner then split up after dinner, and we found some super good potentials!

Friday. Ha. So I can't give too much detail about Friday and Saturday, other than we spent more time with the Mission President than any missionary wants to, but basically it ended with Elder Simmons getting Emergency Transferred out. My new companion is great!
Elder Westover is from Washington state and has been out for 3 weeks! So I'm training which has been fun so far!

Sunday was pretty long, we were slammed all day. We taught a family, the dad of which is less active and has been coming back to church. Great family.  And today has already had a rough start, we had to give our car back :( but that's good because the weight gain season is coming up! Haha.

Well I hope all your weeks weren't as crazy as mine! Here's a crappy pic of elder Westover and me with dinner last night!
