Mini Exchanges with the Spanish Elders


We have had a good week here. I guess that every week is Good as a
missionary. It hasn't been the most productive of weeks, but some are
better than others.

On Tuesday we were trying to meet some more of the members in the
ward. We knocked on a door and the husband wasn't home so we couldn't
go in. We decided just to make use of it while we were there so we
knocked their next door neighbors house. We were able to talk a little
bit and she said that we could come back. It seems like finding in
this area is really difficult, so we were glad to see something come
from that.

Wednesday we had dinner with part member family. We originally planned
on dinner at 5:30 but we didn't end up eating till about 6:15 because
the members husband had to work a little late. We then walked to our
next appointment. It wasn't really a set appointment, more along the
lines of they said that's when we can come over so we reserved that
space for us. We weren't able to teach them since the husband was
traveling for work.

Thursday we had a meeting with a less active member set up at 8. We
ended up doing a mini exchange with the Spanish elders so Elder Rogers
and Elder Gosain taught them and Elder Benson and I went to another
less actives house. Both people we were able to get into so that was
good. The less active that they went to was a part member as well. The
dad went on a mission but went less active shortly after. He married a
non member and when they were there the son came in and was really
interested so they were able to teach the restoration.

Friday we were sick for most of the day. We just moved some more
little stuff from our apartment to our new one. Saturday we were also
sick so those days weren't anything special.

Sunday we had church. We were one of the few wards that didn't get
cancelled because of freezing rain. We did some weekly planning after
we got home. We had dinner with the Hopkins family. They are super

We started a car share this week so we didn't have he car all week. It
honestly felt pretty good to walk and not have to worry about a car.
Lucky for us today is the day we get it back. We moved into our new
apartment this week so that's what we were doing during the days this
last week. We have mostly everything moved over. Just a bunch of
little stuff now. I guess that's how it goes with every move though.
All of the big stuff is easy, them come the little that there seems to
be an endless supply.

Today we are going to go play basketball some where. Seems like we
haven't done that in a while so that's our plan.

We are still working with a good handful of people. We have 1 lesson
tonight, and 3 lessons on Wednesday set up so this is going to be a
good week. We are going to try to find some more this week. That has
been our biggest struggle.

That makes me really sad to hear about lizzy. She was a good dog and
will be remembered. I hope that grandma recovers fast. Glad to hear
that you guys are recovering from all of the sickness that has been
over there. Hopefully everything continues to get better. Glad to know
the business is going good. I was thinking maybe I'll be able to help
out when I get home. I guess we will see.

Thanks for your support! Love you guys!
