Dear Friends and Family, On Monday's preparation day we had a lot of fun playing nerd wars, I volunteered to be the zombie first. We celebrated Elder Nimmer's birthday at a member's home that evening and there was a lot of food. :) On Tuesday, we had our district meeting because of the temple trip on Wednesday. We picked up the zone leaders and drove them down and then we went to Cook Out for lunch. We worked Reidland, we tracted and dropped in on potential investigators. That evening we met with two part member families. On Wednesday the temple trip to Nashville was canceled because of the storms/weather. I was bummed but at least we didn't get stuck on highway I24, I heard a lot of people slept in their cars. We worked Benton that day. After one of our teaching appointments we came out to the car and the doors were about frozen shut. That night a blizzard [almost a blazzard which = 7 blizzards] came through the area and it looked crazy. Snow was blowing everywhere. We had to shovel the snow and it took forever. Thursday we had to stay in to dig out.
On Friday we walked to Draffenville. That was so much fun and I even was sun burnt. On Saturday we went to Benton and a member took us to a Mexican restaurant. On Sunday church was canceled because the heat is still out in our building. We ended up going to the Symsonia Baptist church. That afternoon we visited and ate with a member and then had a few more appointments including dinner at another member's home :-). Basically we celebrated Elder Nimmer's birthday all week.
Mosiah 4:30 But this much I can tell you, that if ye do not watch yourselves, and your thoughts, and your words, and your deeds, and observe the commandments of God, and continue in the faith of what ye have heard concerning the coming of our Lord, even unto the end of your lives, ye must perish. And now, O man, remember, and perish not.
Love, Elder Blazzard
