Week 41

Hello from sunny Arizona!

May 18
Today P-day was really lame. My email wasn't working really so I got a very little amount of that and nothing was going on at the Stake Center. The evening was really good though. We shared a message with Sister Brien and contacted a couple of potential investigators and could have lessons with them soon!

May 19
Today was good, we contacted potential and former investigators. We had dinner at the Quintana's which was kind of stressful because brother Quintana wasn't going to be there so she called up her son to come to dinner, just a crazy situation. We went on splits which was good.  Nobody answered for me and President Huff so he took me to get ice cream and he also gave five bucks to a homeless couple which was really cool!

May 20
Today was a really long day. We visited a lot of potential and former investigators but not many people answered. We biked over 100 blocks today because we had to go to dinner at our apartment from the end of our area because Sister Rios dropped off dinner, which was really good!

May 21
Today we shared a message with Brother Southworth then did our weekly planning. We had dinner with the Robinson's and Beeson's. So found out at Brother Beeson our Second Counselor is the second cousin of Eliza Beeson, the Sister Beeson that served in our ward in Eau Claire!!! Craziness!!! After dinner we visited potentials and formers and talked to Oscar who we might be doing some service for soon hopefully we can teach him!

May 22
Today we had some weekly planning and had District Meeting which was alright. We had dinner with Sister Tovar, which was a really good Jewish meal.  It was Shavuot which was Jewish bread, sweet sauerkraut and brats it was pretty good! We contacted a referral and she is open to learning though her husband doesn't want anything to do with it, so hopefully we can teach her. We were contacting a former investigator and when we were leaving their boxer chased me and I stopped and it ran into my tire and ran away pretty creepy! We contacted a former investigator, Melissa, and she is interested so we set up an appointment for Friday!  Pretty good day!

May 23
Today we constructed the "Warn Your Neighbor" lesson! We had dinner with the Eaton's which was good. We contacted formers and potentials. We were supposed to have a lesson with David Valenzuela but he didn't answer. So brother Jayme, who went with us, took us around visiting and almost got in a wreck! We were biking to the Church at the end of the night and  a guy named Chino stopped us and talked to us for a bit which was really cool! We got his phone number but we think he lives outside our area.

May 24
Church was pretty good today. Elder Keefer was home for his first Sunday. He was pretty cool! We had dinner at President Perkins (Stake Presidency Second Counselor) who Keefer lives with. After dinner we went to Emerson's farewell party and then visited the Arboledas.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Love you all,
Elder Ashby
