Hot week, good week. 9/2/13

My week. Um- it was pretty good! Today we actually did a ton of service even though it was pday the Sisters in the Ward I guess got a call about people moving so we moved some people this morning and I guess they weren't members but knew a lot of people from Iowa or something and were big into geneology. So we moved them at 8 am. Then we went to Sis Kenfield's house in Cambridge and she wanted us to help build a flower bed thing with brick lining around her tree. So we did it. I am tired. DL training is super tiring. I got to bed right at 10:30 pm last night after doing numbers and evaluations and calls! It's pretty glamorous... not. We also had a District meeting in Princeton and I was out of money so we did potluck that was pretty fun. E. Lepannon made some Finish pancakes (crepes) and I made curry and rice and everyone just brought random stuff. We taught Debi and Joe this week once each. Joe is 78 farmer dude and he is awesome. He just smokes a lot. He is also taking his own pace. Debi is just wavering on 
D&C 89 a little bit.  We taught and talked to a few new people like last night a really friendly lady named Susan, who is a single mom has a 15 year old daughter and loves God but hasn't done too much as far as religion lately, like worked a lot and stuff. We taught her and her daughter the restoration and it was crazy she talked for forever! They said we could come back. I invited 'em to Baptism which they said no but it was good I guess. She was obssesed with you can have church anywhere. She said, this meeting right now is church. Then me and Brother Foede the member replied, you need the sacrament and someone to bless it! She was like but you could do that at a park- if you wanted. It was funny. We did a decent amount of less active work and taught 9 non-member lessions and 5 Less actives. We are supposed to strive to hit 20 together while training so we can get used to a lot of teaching. 14 is decent. especially in the stix. One time in the trio in Nepali we had 16 member presents. 16 lessons with a member there, that was really good. 

Do you guys remember when I went out with that missionary from Brazil when I was 16. That was one of the weirdest experiences ever. This mom he wanted to teach got evicted, we went to Wendy's twice. He didn't know English super well. His lefts and rights were mixed up. We never taught anyone and it was during transfer day, so his comp went to Lehi and he stayed in Alpine and his new comp came from St. George so I had to wait at night with him until his new comp got there. It was past 9:30 pm which is when we are supposed to be in and he wouldn't let me go in where they stayed so he just sat there in our car. Weirdest thing ever. That didn't help me understand Missionary work at all.

 Things are going well. We did tons of service this week. Bro Miller our Ward Mission leader had a little party that Joe and Debi went to and that we went to. Just some food at his house and stuff. It is cool today like 55 degrees. It was like in the 90's all week and super humid. So Tuesday all we did was go bike to Debis and paint a bunch of stuff for her. Then after dinner helped a member that last minute called us to move them. It was so hot when we were painting I was outside and literally nonstop beads of sweat were coming from my face. It was pretty good. I miss the dry heat but the worst of it is over it has been a cool dry summer. Not looking forward to winter! Things are going well. We go on a 48 hour exchange with the Zone leaders this week. They do 48 hour exchanges instead of day ones cause of the new Missionary. It is a lot of time. 2 day exchanges. We both go to St. Cloud so we are blitzing the area. I continue to see little miracles all the time. Luckily my arms are pretty tan. I even have a gnarly ring tan line. The rest of me is butt white. So I have something to work with going into the cooler seasons! Hope things are going well with you guys. Love ya!
