21 Dec 2015

Before I forget, I will actually be calling at 12 my time so 1 back home. We are having a district breakfast Christmas morning and we aren't sure when we will be done. So this week was average. We went bowling as a district, I sucked it up. Our zone leader Elder Shin blew us away. After that we went to our district leader's house and watched the Saratov Approach. It was really good. On Tuesday we got to teach the Nu'u sila family. They are a less active family who is working on coming back to church so they can get sealed. They are a Polynesian family and they are really fun. I see a lot of potential for them to be strong in the gospel. 

Nothing really happened on Wednesday, on Thursday we had weekly planning. We set one goal and that was to clean our apartment, because it was nasty. So we cleaned one room every night after planning. So our apartment now looks great. And you can feel the spirit more. 

That night we went on ward visits we went in a big group. It was us, Brother Joyce (ward mission leader), Villiami (ward missionary), Sister Singleton (ward missionary). Sister Singleton is a funny lady, she converted from the baptist church a few years ago. So she gets really excited/fiery  when she talks about the gospel. It was a good time. 

On Friday we had district meeting. It was alright. Lunch afterwards was good though. We ate sandwiches and sat around telling jokes. On Saturday we were eating with a less active family, we were having a good time, but the whole thing with the children of a same sex marriage came up. It was going okay but things were starting to get just a tiny bit heated between my companion and the wife. So the husband and I looked at each other and we could both tell this was starting to go down hill so he changed the conversation. It was a little awkward after that, but they said we could come back anytime so I guess they liked us. 

On Sunday we had two ladies come to church, different wards though. Anyways they both said they are interested in learning more so we have lessons with both of them this week. One of the ladies showed up to the Apple Farms ward which is where I have had most of my success in this area. So Brother Joyce took this lady on a tour of the church and explained the basics of the gospel to her. And she also has a 10 year old son who has not been baptized. So this next week should be good. We also had a musical fireside yesterday so that was cool. Talk to you on Friday.
