This week went by quickly. Our days were filled with service and lessons both with members and investigators. We finally organized MaryAnne’s living room and she was thrilled. She told us that she was going to write President Monson a letter to tell him what good missionaries we are. haha Our ward BBQ was a success we had Bret(our recent convert) picked up Kamden our investigator and they got along wonderfully. They even went to the River Bandit game together (that is a minor league team here in the Quad Cities).
Sunday was rough…. it seemed like everyone was bailing on their commitments. So after sacrament meeting we got up, turned around and saw…..Walter and Dorthy (the ones we went to their church last week), MaryAnne, Paula and Tera (the less active family that wants to adopt me), and Lacadia(another less active we have been working with). Overall a wonderful showing for sacrament. After church the elders had a baptism of a woman named Jessie that is a few months older than me but has had a hard life. She was SO excited to get baptized and receive the Holy Ghost. As I walked her into the chapel she turns to me and says O Crap (but she used a different word) I am so excited to finally be a member of this church. hahaha It was all I could do to not laugh but It was awesome to see how much it meant to her.
In our zone training we talked about repenting daily to more fully sanctify yourself. There is always more to learn about the gospel. It BLOWS MY MIND.
Sorry this letter is short but I can’t really remember anything more from this week. The work is good and keeps us busy!
