Hey Everyone! This week was a pretty good week! It was actually pretty fast considering there was a few extra days since I have talked to you! I will just get right into it!
Monday- We went up to Fort Smith, and played basketball, and volleyball! It was a pretty fun time! We have a pretty fun zone!! We played for a few hours, and had fun most of the time!
Tuesday- We had service at that food pantry, and it was a little bit busy, but not to bad! I really like helping there because my job is I help people load up the food in their car, so it is way fun to talk to everybody, and it is a great missionary opportunity!! After we went to a less actives house, and we talked to them for a little bit! They are interesting! It is a mom (in her late 50s early 60s) and her two sons (26 and 30)! They dont ever leave the house, and the one son vapes so much! He was smoking his vape more than any body I have ever seen in my life! It was kinda nasty!
Wednesday- We had our district meeting this week, and this one was really weird! It was an hour longer than normal and we had members there who we practiced teaching on! It was way weird, but good I think!! We helped a member fix a cabinet that some former missionaries had built! Let me tell you some people dont know they basics on how to build something! This cabinet was Jacked up!!! It took quite a while to get to where it was some what normal!!! Then that night we went with the young men! They shot skeet, so we got put as the designated skeet throwers! It was way fun to throw! Even though we didnt get to shoot it was a ton of fun!!
Thursday- It was our planning day, so the morning took up most of that! Our branch had a Family History Discovery day where we did a bunch of Family History things! We spent most of the day inviting people to that, and then we went to that event! It was pretty fun! I learned a ton of things!
Friday- So we got our hair cut on Friday morning, and we went to a beauty college to do it! I was super nervous because that place looked super dumpy, but it turned out to be a pretty good hair cut! We had an exchange with a member, and we spent a lot of time visiting less active members! We also go a few things ready for our baptism!
Saturday- We got to the church, and started filling up the font! I tell you what, There is no better sound that a font filling up! It really is such an amazing sound! S. got baptized, and it went really good! It was so cool to see her finally get baptized because we had a long and crazy process with getting her there! It was pretty funny for dinner a member took us to a restaurant that describes Oklahoma! It was a catfish buffet! It was in an old barn that they converted to a restaurant, and all the wall were ply wood! The food was soooo good though! I tell you what, It may not look pretty, but it tasted amazing!
Sunday- Church went really good! S.was confirmed, and it went really good! After that It was a pretty funny day at church! I was asked to speak, so I had this talk prepared! Well I was the 2nd speaker, and Elder Butler was supposed to be the 3rd speaker! There was a lady speaking, and then a musical number, and then me! Well this member gave a 40 minute talk about family history, and then there was a musical number, so by the time It was my turn to speak it was about 10 after 11! I gave about a 5 minute talk! Elder Butler got up and bore his Testimony! Then we closed it all up! As soon as the meeting was over our Branch President informed us that we were teaching Gospel Doctrine! I have no problem teaching a lesson on the spot if it is an easy topic, but the topic was The Law of Consecration! It was interesting lol!
Monday- Since it is transfer week we had District meeting on Monday! That was pretty fun! There is an Elder in our District and it is his Last transfer, so it was kind of fun we sang the Hymm "God Be With You TIll We Meet Again" To him! We had some way good teaching apointments with some less actives, and then had an amazing lesson with our investigator Matt! He was given some Anti Mormon stuff, and we were able to bare testimony to him, and he said that he was going to read and pray about the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith to know for himself which is true! It was AWESOME!!!!
Tuesday- Tuesday was interesting!! We had a lunch with some members where they fed us BBQ! We ate with them around 1! I ate a ton, and got super full! We had an appointment with a returning less active at 3! It turns out she was planning on feeding us as well! I almost made myself sick eating! It was also Elder Butlers Birthday so our dinner threw a birthday party for him as well! It was a ton of fun! We got Transfer calls as well! Elder Butler is Leaving, and I am staying! I am getting a missionary I have never met! His name is Elder Augustus! I am also District Leader again! This transfer should be a good one!
Well that was my week! I sure love you and miss you guys!
