August 10Happy Birthday Ethan! Today was a pretty lame P-day as Elder Anderson volunteered us to take Elder Stott and Elder Lui to go tie shopping and then we sat at their house for a long time. We finally went to the church to play some three way volleyball. We made some visits to end the night.
August 11Today was pretty good. We had lessons with Jessica and a less active member with a 9 year old daughter cancel on us. We had dinner dropped off and we weren't able to teach Maylia, a recent convert, because we couldn't get a male to come with us. We made some visits the rest of the night and we have exchanges with the Assistants so I am with Elder Canny in their area!!!
August 12Today was a blast! We had a service opportunity in the morning that their whole Zone went to. We cleaned up a bunch of garbage on two houses in the ghetto! We went and visited one of their Ward Missionaries and shared a message. Dinner was really good, I don't remember the family's name. We taught their investigator Ben. Our lesson with Curtis cancelled. Had a really good day with Elder Canny!
August 13 - HUMP DAY!!!!Pretty good day today! No packages yet but I'm sure they will be arriving soon. We had weekly planning which went well. We had a lesson with Trisha who is going through some hard times after being laid off from her job. We went to 5 Guys with the Twiggs, which was really good!
We had splits where I visited some potential investigators and talked to an inactive member who wants to come back and have his girlfriend take the lessons which was really cool. They are not in our ward unfortunately, but I was still really excited! Then we went to Macdon's for an ice cream cone!
August 14Today was really good. I got my hump day package from Mattie which was really surprising haha! We had District Meeting which went really well and we were able to see how the other Missionaries have done with the social media and I was very impressed that they took what I had talked about and ran with it which made me really happy! We went with Hermana Johnson and Sister Barton to a lesson with one of their investigators who is YSA age who they are going to try and hand off to us. The lesson went really well. We had dinner with the Bryson's which was good! We made visits the rest of the night and set up an appointment with Desirae.
August 15Today was pretty good. We went over to Brother Cleverly's to help him out with some odds and ends and he taught us a little about sprinklers! We had a lesson with a new investigator from the family ward, Alice who was raised RLDS but she is interested in meeting with us. The lesson went well and should be interesting to teach her. We had dinner with the Rotches and then had a lesson with Makaila Chalia and made a couple visits before taking Elder Nicholson and Elder Cross out for celebratory Cold Stone for finding a new solid investigator!
August 16Today was pretty good. We had two investigators that we weren't expecting that came to church. We taught a guy named Randy between Church and for dinner before we ate with the Donnor's. We then went with Brother Donnor to our lessons with the Rayborns and Desirae . We put Desirae on baptismal date for the 26th of September. We then went and I did a baptismal interview which went well. Then we went and picked up Elder Nicholson and Cross to come over.
Well that is my week....Hope all is well with everyone.
Love you all,
