Season 10 episode 2

Hey y'all! I hope everyone had a fantastic week.

Summer went on vacation for a few days, and then she came back into town upset that she had to come home from her trip. It has been HOT 🔥🔥 But we have still had some fun.

My journal didnt make it to the church today so this weeks email will have as much content as my brain can produce.

Monday-- had a fun time at the skatepark, got polar pops, hit up a trampoline park(mightve been against the rules, we don't know) and had a fun day. Had a short exchange and got some dinner.

Tuesday-- zone conference day. Learned about spirit led invitations and creative finding ideas. Made it home late, Bro Clark picked us up for dinner, and then we balled at the park with some of the guys there. Hopefully we have a more gospel sharing centered story with them but for now it's just splashing 3s 💦

Wednesday-- grinded out most of the day, working on contacting people and organizing our information. Planned lessons, felt pretty on top of it. Had dinner at the Creech's, visited a sister we didnt know and she gave us a future service opportunity. Got our groceries and a few things at Walmart since we couldnt earlier in the week and that was it

Thursday-- today was so plain, but we had lessons with Kevin and the Pitkins and that was every thing notable. Super good meetings, they are making some good progress

Friday-- we visited some members that we didn't know, met some sweet old ladies, packed for the weekend, did come follow me and then started our exchange with Flat Rock.

Saturday-- Got out of the apartment and hit the church, took care of alot of things. Then we had a lesson with the Strongs in the afternoon, and taught the plan of Salvation. they had a really awesome experience with the Spirit at church this last week and are excited to keep coming. Snagged a few things on our way to Columbus for the adult session of Stake conference,and saw a few people that we invited to come so that was pretty cool. Had a fun ( and a little too late of a night) with 8 Elders who were here for Stake conference.

Sunday-- We woke up and got ready for stake conference. Listened to some really good speakers, including Elder Alba, who is the Area seventy! super cool. got some lunch, and then went on down to Fort Benning. Taught The Plan of Salvation to one recruit, and had a good afternoon. Had dinner at Bugs, and then correlation to finish the night. got a sweet hairut, and had a good time with the boys. We had 10 in one apartment for Pday.


I've really been the worst when it comes to emails, next week will be a better and more thoughtful email, but the pdays just fly by!

Have a great week! Stay cool, stay blessed and talk soon

Elder Austin Smith
