Hi Everyone! I'm frozen, but still here!
To start the Week off. We had dinner with the Roys then coordination afterwards. Right before we were going to bed, I realized that I forgot my handbook at his house, and it had my bus pass in it. So that has made for an interesting week, but he let me know today that he found it.
Tuesday, We did a lot of service in the morning, then we were able to teach someone new, (We have been getting a lot of new investigators the past few weeks) he was blown away about the whole restoration and said he would read and pray. Later we got a call from a less active asking if we could come over, so we did, and we read some scriptures with him. He is working on being fully reactivated, just a few more bumps to go.
Wednesday, we were confirming plans for the day, when Bro. Roy texts us asking if we were going to help at the Bishops food truck. We had forgotten, and we were able to, so all we told him was yes. That made our morning fun, because we had a lesson before hand which was clear on the opposite end of our area, so we had him pick us up. Later we had several lessons, including with the Adams. I love the Adams, they are awesome! Brother Adams is set on being Baptized on March 12th!
Thursday, we had our weekly planning, then we had a miracle, every lesson happened! That is so rare, I loved it! We were even able to set 2 more baptismal dates with people. God is good, The Church is true, and the Book is True.
Friday, we had Zone Meeting and it was once again very amazing! We then went on an exchange, I was in my area, and we went to a media referral. As we were giving her, her bible, she asked us what the Book of Mormon was? So we boldly testified to her what the Book of Mormon was, we shared with her passages in it, and she was blown away and asked if she could have one. We quickly gave her one and she said we could come back and share more, and she would read from it before then! I love missionary work!
Saturday was the least greatest day of the week. The Zone leaders were having a baptism and we tried so hard to get people there, the worst part of it was that, President came and we were the only missionaries without an investigator. Oh well. That night, when we ended the exchange, we were stranded at the mission office, so we called the zone leaders and they were able to pick us up. Well none of us had hit our talking with people goal, so we went to UofL and Elder Memmott went with Elder Chandler to a lesson and I went with Elder Asay, and we hit our goals! And got some cool pictures too.
Sunday the Adams were at church and they loved it, then we had pot luck. After that there was a kid baptized, so the Adams got to see a baptism! Well we then went out with a member to go see a deaf sister who hadn't been feeling well, we got there right before a fire truck so the member got to interpret for them. We gave her a blessing and when we did it the member stood in front and signed, it was an amazing experience.
Love you all!Elder Durrant
