1 October 2013

This week has been interesting to say the least.   To start off with on Tuesday we did this really big project of pouring out a cement driveway for this member.  We've been over there a lot these last few weeks and helped prepare his driveway and we finally got it finished.   

On Wednesday we went to this nice little town of Churchville and no one was home so we spent all day tracting this really long road that was in the middle of nowhere.  The best roads to tract are those ones and the really busy highway roads as people usually leave them untouched for us to tract.  Then on Thursday we went and had a speciallized training by our mission president.  It was really good and all the trainings that were given to me felt like what I needed to hear.  It was good. Then on Friday we met with some less active people and helped this one less active part member family move from Brockport to Hilton.   The wife( who's a member) is kind of insane but it was a pretty good move.  Then on Sunday we went and got a couple more investigators who seem interested in learning more.   But yeah that was pretty much it.  We were going to go to the sites on Saturday with the Jonas family but Heather wasn't feeling too good plus we were needed for helping that family move so we decided to postpone it to Friday.  What was so sick though is that she still wanted to go but we though it would be better if she went when she feeling better. She still continues to baffle me at our interested she is in learning.  It's like a dream come true that we have them as investigators.  Hopefully we will be teaching them the gospel of Jesus Christ some time this week too and she should hopefully get to watch general conference too.   

In the middle of nowhere...........

"The Book of Mormon truly is amazing!"

On Monday we helped finish the move for that crazy less active member and then went to Olive Garden with the less active that we did service for last Friday.  We helped her burn this huge pile of stuff.  I was very surprised that it burned so quickly and hot in that the wood was still green but it was willow wood and it burst into flames really fast.  The heat was so intense from it that the leaves would rise in the air and burn and then land and burn me.  And also I forgot to mention I bashed my mouth and bled a ton on Tuesday when I was helping with the driveway.  There was this nice gash on the inside and outside of my mouth.  I was just glad that I didn't need stitches or knock any teeth out.   And then today we went and saw a few people and did some more service.  

I'm still loving the mission life and am trying my best everyday to be more like the Savior.
