Happy 2k17

January 2, 2017

Woah 2016 is done. That's a pretty crazy thing. I spent all of 2016 serving the Lord. It was a pretty killer decision. This was a pretty good week to end/start the year. Monday we had a white elephant gift exchange with the whole Zone then played a sort of free for all dodge ball we call poisonball. Pretty fun, gets you moving for sure.

Tuesday we evaluated a district meeting, and did some other missionary things.

Wednesday we visited I. who just had surgery on his foot, so he was a bit too high to benefit from a lesson.

Thursday morning we went to the companionship study of two elders in our Zone, they've been struggling so we helped them with some stuff... then after that we met with Brother Holmes, an assistant Ward mission leader in one of our wards who used to be a mission president and a 70. He is awesome, so motivated to make things happen! Fun fact, he started the big home building company Holmes homes, his son is a stake President in Draper where I served last Christmas, his other son is on the high council in a different ward in the stake, and his other son is my stake President back in Gilbert. Pretty rad family.

Friday we started exchanges with elder Manarin and Elder Sandino, elder Manarin came to my area with me and we worked him to death, which was just what I wanted because he committed himself to work harder.

Saturday was New Year's Eve and we weren't allowed to knock doors of nonmembers, so we visited a bunch of members and generated referrals. We also finally got around to making posters to put up in all of our church buildings.

Sunday we had church all day, then taught 4 less active families the rest of the day. Pretty busy night which is always great, then we had to collect all the numbers from the zone for the week and send those to the assistants.

It snowed again last night, and it just started snowing again. Love it! Nothin gets sideways easier than a fwd Chevy Cruz! 

Have a great week, happy new year!
