On Monday we did a lot of cleaning in the apartment and got rid of a lot of things that we didn't need anymore. We had dinner with Bishop Roberts and it was great. We shared a little family home evening with them and we all sang beautiful songs with not much harmony. But the spirit was so great and to see the smiles on their children's faces brought me to a deep compassion. We went to Misty's home to start evening prayer with their family daily. We also administered a Blessing to Maeson because she wasn't feeling well.
Tuesday we had district meeting and the spirit was very strong as we bore our testimonies and strengthened each other. We started trade offs and Elder Jensen and I went with Elder Gudmundsen to Defuniak. We biked about 15 miles and tracted. We talked with some great people. We had dinner with the Howard's and after did some service for them.
Wednesday we did some Arts with some of God's precious disabled children. We then biked another 18 miles and tracted. We found a few potentials and I hope they are excited to learn. We had dinner with the Cosson's and then ended the Trade off.
Thursday we planned for this upcoming week and then went right out to visit all the referrals that we had been receiving. We set return appointments up with 2 of them which was great. We did service for a member at his sisters home who is not a member. I was grateful to be able to help with that. We had trade offs with the High Council that night and visited less active members in the 1st ward. We had a meeting with Brother Strickland about the missionary work in all the areas.
Friday we went for our return appointments with the referrals and they weren't able to talk at the time so we tracted and found Telisha a Lapitre. We taught Telisha the 1st lesson and she loved it. We visited Robin Owens on of our referrals and taught her the stop smoking class and she is doing good.
Saturday we taught Telisha again and it went great. We went and did service at the Fehlman's and it went well also. The 2nd ward had an activity and there were 30+ non members there. It was great.
Sunday I went to Paxton and gave a talk on service. They only had 10 people at the Branch today. We then taught Junior Dukes and Clyde the Plan of Salvation and it went great. There were 9 investigators at church in the 2nd ward.
This week has been great because we have been able to teach and help our Heavenly Father children.
