Hello Family and Friends,
This week was so awesome. I am having so much fun with Elder Lowe!
Tuesday: In the morning we had a lesson with our investigator Joy. That went well she just won't keep commitments and that was really frustrating. Then we had a lesson with a member named Jeff Sellnar and we talked about the Melchezideck Priesthood. Then we had an idea because there are so many churches here when we tract everyone says " Oh i go to the church around the corner, BYE (Slams Door)" So we decided to get in our service clothes and carry rakes around and say "Hey we are looking for opportunities to do some service, is there anything we can do for you?" It was awesome! Some people really took
us up on it and we were able to rake a couple of yards. Service is the way we are going to find teaching opportunities. Later in the night we went with Bishop to Cannon Falls a near by town that is in our area. We taught a part member family and they pretty much only speak Spanish so it is a little bit hard to communicate, but we downloaded a video about temples in Spanish and shared it with them. We talked about external families and it was awesome. Bishop invited the non member to his house for dinner tomorrow and we are going and teaching the Restoration we are pumped.
Wednesday: We did service at a place called connecting connections. That was really good! Then we raked some leaves for this one lady. Then we went to Bro Edwards house and helped him out in the backyard. Then we had Coordination and a lesson with Bro Johnson. There dog went after me again..
Thursday: it was the best day ever!! We went to the Twins game and oh my goodness!! Target Field is so sick. I saw two of my old companions and lots of elders and sisters that I knew it was so much fun. The twins did not play too well they lost 3-1 but Joe Mauer hit a triple which was sick. Ah man that is a day I will never forget. I will send all the pictures that I took!! :)
Friday: We had our normal weekly planning session.. We then went to this less actives house and she almost got in a full out brawl with her neighbor and like the cops showed up and everything it was super intense so we just left. That was very scary!
Saturday: We started the day off with raking leaves at this members home out in the middle of no where but they have a lot of property so that took a couple of hours. Then we had a lesson with a former investigator named Dayle. Then we did some more service, we were able to paint for this guy named Dennis. He is not a member so it was good!
Sunday: We had church and it was a great Sunday, we had a lot of people we are working with come so we were excited about that!! Then we went to a non members home and helped them do some sheet rock and they fed us and we shared a message with them. It was so awesome! They are not investigators or anything, we just asked them if they would
like some help and they said that they would. So we have been helping them and it was just so awesome that they let us share a message. :)
This week was another great week!! We just got transfer news, I am staying in Red Wing with Elder Lowe for his last transfer of his mission. I am so excited to be with him another one! We are seeing so many miracles here. The twins game was so sick too! Man this week was just awesome, here are some pictures:
