Wow this week was great, but slow. Everyone was gone for Christmas, but it was Christmas!! It was awesome to be able to Skype home. :) Well let me tell you about my week.
It was p-day. We emailed, did laundry, and then shopped. We tracted a bit and then had supper at Rusnell's. It was great. We then just tried by some potentials.
We did studies and had lunch. We then had a lesson with Grandma Jean. We read through 3 Nephi 27 with her. We then went and saw Bud and Dan. We then tracted in a new part of downtown and found 5 potentials. It was great. We had supper with Lord's and then tried some potentials.
Well we got together with the other elders and had a district Christmas party. It was fun. We then tried the people that we tracted into. We then went to the Roys. We had supper at Aulenbach's we then went to Fitzner's for a bit.
CHRISTMAS!! We got up and went to Fitzner's for breakfast and to open presents. Thanks to everyone. :) We then went to the Catholic church. They put on a Christmas meal for some of the homeless and poor families. We went and helped set up and decorate for that. We then came back to the Fitzner's and Skyped. :) We had lunch and played some games and ate supper. We then ran and visited with Olsen's for a bit. We then picked everything up from Fitzner's and went home. :)
We did Weekly Planning and then had lunch. We went to do mormon.org time, but the library was closed. we then just tried potentials. It was really too cold to tract. We then had supper at Olsen's and then went to Jackson's. They gave us each Little Missionary Quote book and a True to the Faith book. It was cool.
We did studies and had lunch. We then tried by potentials. We were supposed to have a lesson with some people that Elder Barber and I tracted into, but they weren't home. We did mormon.org time and then tried some other people. We drove out and had supper with the Kidd's. Helped them a bit and then drove back. We then stopped by Simpson's. One of the boys was the only one to really talk. Bro and Sis Simpson were out to dinner and two of them were downstairs. He really opened up to us about why he doesn't come to church. It was great.
We had church then coordination. We then went home for some lunch. We were suppossed to have a lesson with Jeff. We go and knock on the door and their dog runs out. We spend a few minutes trying to lure the dog back. The whole time the dog is just playing. We finally help get him back inside and it was her mother was watching their kid while they went out somewhere. We then tried some potentials. We had supper with Beaulnes. We drove to Gregoire to try Bro Rich, but he wasn't home. We stopped at the church and made some calls. We then went over to Diggles and had a lesson with them. So amazing. :)
Well that was my week. With the holidays it's been slow, but it's going to pick back up soon. :)
