No Mo Good Weather

November 21, 2016

Well this week went from beautiful to freezing overnight. But now it's not too bad, just raining. 

Zone leader responsibilities are definitely different, but I like them. We have to do exchanges with each District Leader in the zone, as well as the assistants to the president, so 4 exchanges per transfer. Then we also move around to the different district meetings to evaluate them and tell the district leaders what went well and how they can improve. At the beginning of each transfer we have a meeting with all the district leaders to train them. We also have a short 1.5 hour zone expectation meeting at the beginning of each transfer, as well as a longer 2.5 hour zone training meeting at the beginning of each month, and a zone conference almost every month (with multiple zones included). So we are pretty busy. Haha. But it's fun! 

We have spent a ton of time this week helping out other missionaries and it's taken a lot away from our area, but yesterday we found some super solid potentials we know we can baptize, so it's really cool to see that as we serve our zone, the lord provides us with baptisms!

Monday was a pretty crazy day, we didn't have a lot of time and were pretty busy, but for he most part we got everything done and started work at 6. Not a ton happened that night, just taught a few lessons.

Tuesday morning we went to elder Froehlichs district meeting to evaluate it, then later we taught S. and K., both are doing great!

Wednesday we did some service raking leaves and then started exchanges with elders Partridge and Westover. Elder Westover came into my area with me. Elder Rossette went into the Oquirrh lake stake, where they froze to death because it snowed that night.

Thursday was a lot of administrative stuff, and Friday we met with the assistants in the morning to go over a few things since I'm a new ZL.

Saturday was pretty crazy. We did triage exchange blitzes in two areas in our zone to try and help the areas and the companionships out. We also had a baptism of an 8yr old whose parents we reactivated, and I got to go back to the Oquirrh Lake Stake for H.'s baptism! It was so great to see that our efforts helped T. stop smoking so he could baptize his daughter!

Sunday was pretty normal, about half way through the day we had to go interview an investigator for baptism, and the rest of the day was pretty chill. We received some really good referrals, so we are excited for what this next week has to offer!
