This week has been an adjustment but it has been great and the work still continues on.
On Monday we went up to President Coleman's house in Laurel Hill and had a great lesson with Ron and his Family and will be figuring out a great day this week to set up another appointment with them. Ron has a smoking problem but he said that if that was needed he would give it up in a heart beat.
On Tuesday we had district meeting and continued throughout the day visiting member and tracting by there houses. We dropped off the new DVD to the referral that she received but she was not interested at that time to hear anymore. That evening we went back to President Coleman's and had a lesson with Sheila Parker. It went really well and she seems excited to continue to learn about the Gospel.
On Wednesday we had transfers and got things all adjusted and did a little bit of tracting. We had a softball social within Crestview 2nd ward and we had quite a few investigators there. We all had a great time and enjoyed each others company and meeting the new members.
On Thursday we did a bit of planning and got some appointments squared away. We went to visit Marty but he wasn't home at the time so we are rescheduling that appointment here very quickly. We tracted a bit by some less active members and found Shawn and will be teaching him on Wednesday and also quite a few potential on the same street. We had a dinner appointment that night at a the Gillespie's and it was great. We then had our basketball night and had 3 investigators there and it went well.
On Friday we planned a little bit more and looked over the area books to familiarize with all the areas. We set up and appointment with Brother Phillips for this Wednesday and will be setting a BCD with him that day. We then went to Misty's house and visited Kevin and Joey before she got there. It went real well and we had some fun activities that we did with them. We then taught a lesson with Misty about Authority. She had some doubts come into her mind that she was struggling with. We committed her to pray about authority and also the specific verses in 3 Nephi 11 that talk about Authority.
On Saturday we called and visited a couple less active members in the Olive Branch and also picked up a few past investigators who we will be teaching tomorrow.
On Sunday we had meetings that covered the Day and then Stake Conference. The messages were great and the spirit was so strong. We had dinner at a members house and then went on splits with the ward mission leader to visit less active members.
The District is doing well and we will continue to serve diligently in the areas that the lord has directed us to be in.
