It just seems that I have had less and less time to email lately. Probably because I am trying to cram as much into my last few p days as possible.
Anyways, for the sake of time, let me get down to business.
On Monday we spend P-Day in Union with a bunch of missionaries from around the zone. It was really fun and we cooked venison burgers and chilled out. After that we went and had a game night with a member family and some non members. It was really fun and good overall!
Tuesday we had a zone wide District meeting, which was kinda weird but good. The reason for this was that they had to replace the TIWI box in all of our cars. TIWI is the name of the black box that yells at us for driving badly. Most of the boxes in the mission were broken, and we were enjoying the life of freedom. You can imagine we weren’t too happy about getting them back. After that we had a few good appointments and I don’t really remember too much else.
Wednesday was fun as usual. We had service at the MTCC and then afterward we went to Habitat for Humanity to do some more service. We did a TON of demolition and I was very exhausted and sore afterward. We finished the night with Book of Mormon class, that we taught, and that ended the day.
Thursday and Friday were pretty slow as we had most of our appointments cancel. We did have a couple good appointments with some less actives, but that was about it.
Saturday was crazy busy. We had an appointment with B. and J. M., which went ok. Things have been back to normal for them, but I personally think we did a poor job of teaching the Plan of Salvation. I hadn’t taught it in a while and I was a little bit rusty. They liked it though, so I guess that’s what matters. Hopefully they come to church soon.
After the appointment we helped Brother T., a less active member, go shopping for Thanksgiving. He recently had a surgery and can’t lift heavy things, so we were his muscle for the afternoon.
After that we had dinner and then had an appointment with our recent convert J. It was a lot of fun, mostly because J. is hilarious. He’s the only active member in his family and is only 12, so we work really hard to make sure he stays active. That pretty much finished out the day.
Sunday was pretty quiet. Church was good, but other than that it was slow. We had one appointment but we didn’t get to teach much. That was about it.
It was a pretty good week overall. This upcoming week should be really interesting. We are having zone Conference tomorrow and apparently they are going to be piloting a program that is going to change the way we do missionary work completely. I’m pretty excited, even if it won’t affect me for long.
Anyways, I gotta go! Talk more next week!
