Dear Family and Friends,
This was a good, busy week and it went by very fast. We had some success in this small town. We had a Zone Meeting in Franklin, TN were the Nashville Tennessee Temple is located. We talked about finding people to teach in ward council which made for a productive meeting. Afterwards, we had pizza and ice cream. I love having a full time car again. We had a dinner Saturday night and they fed us buffalo hamburgers and they were really good ... juicy. We had a good lesson with a family on Tuesday night with a member who went with us. This family said they felt the spirit as they read the Book of Mormon. I am glad to be able to teach them. Friday night we had a young man from the Branch come out with us and we were able to meet with three people with him. The exchange went well. I showed him my YouTube video "blanket swing fail" and he thought it was hilarious.
Last night we had a member come with us and we had two really good lessons. We have a restoration lesson and a lesson on the spirit world and spent some time answering this guy's tough questions ... that was an experience. We have a lot of things coming up. Tomorrow we have interviews and then the following Saturday we have Elder David A. Bednar coming to the mission and meeting with the missionaries. That night we have a music concert at the building in Dickson. It will be fun to meet an Apostle. I am excited. We are doing a lot of service here and working on farms. It is entertaining. Have a good week and I will do the same, love you guys.
Mosiah 2:6 And they pitched their tents round about the temple, every man having his tent with the door thereof towards the temple, that thereby they might remain in their tents and hear the words which king Benjamin should speak unto them;
