I sent off a couple of letters this morning. Hmmm. District meeting was today so we didn't tract very long. In the afternoon, Elder Endicott needed to take another Elder to the doctor so Elder Martin and I were companions. We played a game left in the apartment during break and had a good time. After break we started out to go tracting and saw a sister in the ward mowing her lawn. So we mowed her lawn for her and put out some mulch for her. Soon my companion joined us and lended a hand with all the mulch. It was a good service for a sister who needed the help. Love to serve others!
Beat Elder Endicott at Mancala three times tonight. Than you Lauren for whoeing me how to be good at that game. :-)

Again, not so bad of a day. I got a couple of letters in the mail. Love those! One was from the Phillips Family and one from Brittany. Letters really help me along so thank you very much!
We are going on exchanges tonight. I will be with Elder Twingstom who is a really good missionary and I really enjoy him at P-Day activities. Well, I'm off to bed. Thank you for your love and prayers.

The exchange was great! I loved ever minute of it. We didn't teach any lessons so we did tracting most of the day. Tracting takes a long time and gets really old, really fast so we started joking and stuff between doors.

Today was not a good day. Struggling with my companion. I nad to sing hymns and fun songs to make it through the day. I don't understand individuals who rejoice in being "not nice". Anyway, you'd be proud of me mom. I kept my cool.

Still no sighting of bears. There are lots of detroyed garbage cans though. I heard a little dog got out and was eaten by a bear. Poor little dog. :-( I wish I could have been there to save the little guy. It could have been my chance to fight a bear! LOL

Great Day! Exchanges are always great! We worked hard all day. Didn't teach any lessons which was tough but did do service. We helped a brother on his property do some work. He had a wire fence that had grown into some trees, so we chopped it out. Know there is a gospel lessons in the wire in the trees, I'll have to expound on it later.
