Hello everyone! It's Me! Your favorite missionary in Kentucky!
This week has been full of up and down, but that's all part of the job.

Tuesday, we went and talked with a guy who's wife is a member. She wasn't there so we didn't give a lesson, but he shared stories with us about what he used to do, Live Action Roll Play, with real armor that they made, but they had sticks instead of sharp pointy things.  Someone could get killed with those!   So it's hundreds of nerds hitting each other with sticks, sounds like something fun to watch, and Adam would fit right in ;) Then that night we took one of our investigators to a baptism, and she loved it!

Wednesday, we taught a couple that we ran into last week ( The Adams).  She is a member, but hasn't been in 15 some odd years, so we are teaching both of them, and I had to restrain myself from making a joke about the Adams family (snap snap) he he he ;)

Thursday, we had district meeting, and the Zone Leaders gave us a ride, and we went past some road work, (it's impossible to escape) and we made a funny little video as we passed, that I will send to you when I can, it's so funny when missionaries act like gangsters!

Friday, we had dinner with the Dunn's (the family where the dad does the LARP) and it was fun.  We had really good shepherds pie, and we got to know them a little more which led us to talking about what he used to do, all the way to spiders. So yes it was a fun talk.

Saturday, we had a lot planned, but we ended up doing a lot of biking, and I now know what it feels like to get dumped over text.  Our best investigator dropped us, and we haven't been able to get in contact with her, but don't worry, we'll get her back!

Sunday was good, after church we went out with a member and was able to get a lot done.  In the space of 24 hours, we went from 1 baptismal date to no dates to 2, and we should be getting more so.

The quote for the week is from President Hinckley.
"No other work reaches so close to divinity as does the nurturing of the sons and daughters of God."
(President Gordon B. Hinckley, "Stand Strong against the Wiles of the World", October 1995.)
