Super Cool Week!!

Hello Family,

 Here is my breakdown of my week-

Tuesday-We were driving around (which I get to drive now!) and we were trying to find some less actives. We knocked on a door and a 15 year old boy answered and he was really interested in what we had to say. He said he went on a weekend camping trip with a church group and how cool it was and how close he felt to God. We taught him a short lesson on the Restoration and left him a pamphlet, we are going back to see him so hopefully he read it!

We also did splits this night, I was able to go see the Durrant's, turns out they are related to the Durrant's and Jones's in Morgan! We got talking about hunting up by the "M" and he knew a lot of things about Morgan, which was really cool to talk about. He has a really nice car collection and when the weather gets warmer, he wants us to help him with his cars.

Wednesday-We had Zone Training today, got to see the new Greenies!! (glad to know I'm not the newest anymore!) It was good and afterwards we all had lunch at Huhot, it's a Mongolian Grill. It's pretty much the coolest place ever.

After we went and saw Steve and taught him a little more. He said he was going to come to church, but he didn't. He helps take care of a 13 year old boy since his dad is in jail. That's nice that Steve helps takes care of this boy.

Thursday, Nothing much happened today, it was SUPER windy and it would blow us around while we were walking.

Friday-We were able to go to the temple as a zone. It was really neat. The temple here is super small, especially compared to the temples I've been to. It was really spiritual and it was a super good day! Too bad we can only go to the temple every 2 months, and that's if you're close enough to go. Anyway...Temple Day was really cool!! :)

Saturday-We met a 19 year old boy that while in jail, became really close to God because he read the Bible all the time. He said he enjoys learning more about other religions and he is really open to learning more.

Sunday-We had an early meeting today, it was really strange because the church was still kind of dark and no one was there. It brought back memories of working at the Elementary School! Anyways, the Primary President asked us if we would teach the Primary kids. Elder Cortez taught them about doing service and I talked about the blessings from serving and how nice it is to serve. It was really neat to teach the kids!

Well, that's my week, most of our lessons that we taught this week are to new investigators, which is super cool!! The work here is just about to really get moving. Just yesterday, we were able to teach 3 lessons to new people!!

Hope everything is going well with everyone and that the weather isn't as crazy as here! One day it was 34 then it got to 70 and then down to 18..crazy!!!

Love all you guys!!
