Dear Family and Friends,
Sit back and enjoy reading about my missionary life. On Monday, we went to the Wildflower Bed and Breakfast for FHE. We had ______ cheese sandwiches, basically shredded cheese, mayo and stuff. It is not too good, but I didn't show that. On Tuesday, we went to Benton, walked and talked a lot. After a day, an older couple picked us up and took us to Subway, then we went to a part member, older couple's home. They talked a lot! On Wednesday we went to Murray on the way to Hardin. We picked up the zone leaders, I gave a training on how we should use the Book of Mormon. After District Meeting, we went to Fazolis...yum. After that we loaded wood and delivered it to a single mom to keep warm in the winter. It was actually quite warm this week. That night we visited a part member family...well, the mom is the only member. It was a fun visit, we did the six saltine crackers in a minute; I got five and a half, ha--beat that! We got them to commit to come to church, and they did...yay. Thursday was a terrible day; I wanted to quit, but I pushed through. We worked Draffenville just a few miles up the road. We tracted and did some potential follow up. It was a very cold day. On Friday, we were up in Calvert City. We hit some less actives and recent converts. We also did some tracting. We had dinner at a members house, then went on exchanges with the dad. We went to Ledbetter, and met one more less active and her friend. We invited them to church. This week we invited so many to church.
On Saturday, we worked Symsonia, we talked with a referral from church headquarters. She is crazy. Oh, last week on Sunday, a branch member gave a testimony about Joseph Smith jumping planets and talking with him. We had an investigator at church who said he never wants to come back, but don't worry Elder Nimmer and I have it covered. He will come back, ha ha. Back to Saturday, we also talked to a less active family and they reminded me of books about families living on farms in the old west. Kids climbing trees, a very dirty two year old also trying to climb trees, and dogs & cats everywhere...oh, and a mom yelling at them from the kitchen window. That day it was a nice 72 degrees. It was so nice, I walked around in a short sleeve shirt and loved it. On Sunday, we had the normal stuff, PEC and church. After church we went to our investigator with a baptismal date. She didn't make it to church because of a flat tire and being threatened to be kicked out of her house. We directed them to help and lifted their spirits. We had to push back her date. That night, we went to Christian Fellowship, a nondenominational ( I call the, mumdemums). It was fun, good music. We got a lot of, "Oh, do come backs." This morning we went to Benton and I mailed off a charger for a Elder who left his here. Cost me money, err. Now I am writing this to y'all: 16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. (Romans 8) Love,
