13 Jun 2016

This week was good. On Monday for a zone activity we played basketball, volleyball, and a game called spotlight. It was really fun. We have a sister in our zone, she is actually one of the sister APs., who is really good at volleyball. My team stomped the other team. It was a really fun p-day! I also let Elder Coleman cut my hair, but he messed it up. He cut the top too short and shaved my part line. Then that night we started exchanges with the Zone Leaders.

On Tuesday we had a lesson with the Vigils. They are an old Catholic couple that we read the Book of Mormon with. Then we had a lesson with Keven. We taught him the Plan of Salvation. He was involved and asked some good questions. We are still trying to determine if he is all there mentally or not. After that we went and visited a man named Richard Thompson. For the rest of the night we went contacting. Elder Andersen and I had a lot of fun. Some dude gave us home made bread.

On Wednesday we taught a guy in the care center named Craig. He has been less active for probably over 40 years. He read the Book of Mormon half way through in the last couple of months. He pretty much taught us the restoration. He has a sincere desire to come back to church. At the end of the lesson he bore his testimony to use on the Book of Mormon. Then we taught Tommy Bean a really quick lesson. Then we had dinner. After that we visited the Neffs and the McFarlanes. 

On Thursday we had a pass off lesson with the Spanish Sisters. There was a woman who wanted Sisters but then later said she was fine with Elders. Her name is Diana and she is as golden as they come. We taught her tithing and she was numbed out that she only had to pay 10 percent. So then we had weekly planning. After dinner we went and visited Bill Tate. We read in the Book of Mormon with him and discussed it. We read 3 Nephi 11. We focus on how Christ let everyone touch him one by one. 

On Friday we had district meeting. I gave a training on resolving concerns. Then we had a senior couple bear their testimonies because they are finishing their mission. Afterwards we ate at Chick-fil-A and some lady paid for us. After lunch we had a lesson with the Flores family. Their two sons were baptized almost a month ago. Then we taught a girl named Amber the restoration and put her on date. We are going to pass her off to the YSA sisters though.
 On Saturday we played basketball with Elders Dolan and Hunt. After that we had studies and went to a lesson with Diana. We were answering some of her questions and we talked a lot about faith. She would get baptized right now if she could. Then we had a lesson with Keven and we taught him the gospel of Jesus Christ. We still aren't sure of his mental capacity. The rest of the night we went contacting.  

On Sunday only half of the people showed up that we thought would. It was sad. We weren't able to teach Bruno because he is out of town for a few weeks. So we went visit people the rest of the night.
