Got out of the car and walked today. It was a beautiful day. Steak for dinner. :-) It was really good. That was it. That was our day.
Saturday and Sunday, General Conference
I loved Elder Holland's talk on thanks and felt like he said everything I wanted to say to you and dad. Thank you so much. This was my first Priesthood session without dad. Kinda sad, but you'd have been proud when all the missionaries were asked to stand I was standing. I'm so glad I'm here.
After Sunday's session of conference we went to the Sundwalls home and they know Uncle Dan. I guess Dan told them to tell me hi. That was really cool!
Monday October 4
Found out that P-day activities have now been banned in our mission. We can no longer play any sport as a zone or district. I'm disappointed but I understand. Last week 3 elders were seriously injured and one even was sent home for surgery. So today my companion and I went shopping. I bought a thermal shirt for service. We taught a lesson to Luke about prophets.
Went to a ward members home who just purchased a new camaro. It was a beautiful car. He gave us a ride and even offered for me to drive it. I declined. It's against mission rules.
Nothing out of the ordinary. We taught two lessons one on gossip and another on accountability. Both turned out well. I got no mail so I re-read Brittany's letter. lol
Thursday October 7
Interviews with Mission President!
Taught Luke another lesson and he set a baptism date for Dec 2. I was so happy to hear that. It's amazing to hear someone say they want to be baptized.
I got a letter today! It was from Allie Parr. What a fun surprise.
Friday October 8
Went tracting today in Fall City.
Got your letter today!
Our lessons all canceled and no one was home.
We are going on exchanges tonight with the zone leader. I really like the zone leaders. I'll be with Elder Price.
Saturday October 9
I'm with Elder Price and we started by tracting. We had two people tell us we weren't Christians and that we were going to hell. We politely said we believed in Christ and left them our card. The rest of the day was service. We worked at Brother Marques doing odd jobs. While we were working he invited friends over to help with the work and we taught them little mini lessons while we worked.
Sunday October 10
I'm so tired! I'm just exhausted!
Church was nice. Luke came to church. We ate dinner at a members home and then went out tracting. I;m really tired and ready for bed.
Monday October 11
I found a copy of the newspaper clipping and I'm sending it home. Today's P-Day and nothing is really happening.
