June 7, 2017
Hey Everyone! This week was a pretty interesting week!
Monday- We were up in Sallisaw on this Monday, and that was pretty fun! A member in Sallisaw
ended up taking us to Pizza hut for dinner! Well Elder Hawkins and I got into a pizza eating
contest! When all was said and done I ate 12 pieces of pizza, 10 cheese garlic ball things, 4
breadsticks, and I chugged a cup of marinara sauce! The worst part is He beat me by one piece!
We ended up spending the night because they needed help moving a member in the morning!
Tuesday- We woke up, and helped that family move! It was pretty fun because they made us
breakfast! It was really good! Defiantly worth it! When we came back to Poteau, and helped out
at the food pantry! It was a pretty average day with that! In the evening a member took us to a
blue berry farm, and we got to pick blue berries and eat them! That was pretty good! I learned
I like Blue berries!
Wednesday- We had District meeting, and that was alright, but the best part was a senior missionary
can play the Accordion, and he brought his, and played it for us, as well as he played for the
hymns! It was way to funny! After the meeting he let me play it, and they are super hard to play!
Elder Augustus ate a Carolina Reaper! That is supposedly the hottest pepper in the world! It was
so funny to watch! Then some members took us to a Rodeo! That was really fun! Elder Agustus's
stomach wasn't so good, but it was fun to watch!
Thursday- It was a super slow day, and the only real highlight was it was our planning day, but
that is more like a lowlight anyways!
Friday- I got a call from our vehicle coordinator, and well I got what is called red dotted! To
translate from missionary slang to English, I lost my driving privileges! It is ok though I only
have 6 more weeks! ;) Later that day We were going around visiting a Recent convert family,
and it broke out into a back yard baseball game! That got pretty intense! For the record my
team won ;)
Saturday- Again it was a slower day, so the highlight of everything was a non member took us
fishing! That was pretty fun! We caught some cat fish!
Sunday- We had Church on Sunday! That was pretty normal! We were in Gospel Doctrine this
week, and Elder Augustus and I had to correct some False Doctrine that was being taught, so
that was pretty interesting!!
Monday- It is transfer week, so we had District meeting Monday! That was weird to have it on
a Monday because it throws off your normal schedule! After the meeting we had a 2v2
basketball torny! That was a ton of fun! It was a good way to end District meeting! at 9:30
we got a call from the Zone Leaders! We got transfer calls a day early! I am being transferred
to Springfield Missouri! I will be in the Chesterfield ward! My companion is Elder Czirr, and We
will both be brand new in the area! We are also in a bike area, so we will see how that goes!
Tuesday- We did some service, but most of the day I was going around saying goodbye to people!
I am going to miss Poteau! I really liked it here! I am kind of sad to leave!
We you all have a great week! I love and miss you!
Love Elder Jordan Sorensen
