I sent my spiritual thought in a different email this week so if you just want to see that one go check it out haha. This week was a really good Elder Palmer and I really bonded this week and we are hoping to get a couple of people on a Baptisimal Date in the next couple of weeks!
Day 1: Today was Pday and it was pretty awesome! We got to give the Spiritual thought at the Family Home Evening activity this week and it was awesome, and so much fun. Who knew giving a spiritual thought could be so much fun! Well after my spiritual message, we carved pumpkins and we made a pretty gnarly one it says book of mormon and has the angel moroni, haha its awesome!
Day 2: We had 3 appointments today 2 canceled haha still not on a great streak for that haha. We had a good day of finding we talked to a lot of people and got a couple of numbers. We then taught a lesson about temples and baptisms for the dead to a recent convert his name is Conner and he's going to the temple tomorrow so we are so happy and excited for him!
Day 3: Went to TCC today and had a lesson with Luke and Josh it went really good! We got to know them really well and we now have a weekly appointment with them. We then got to teach Jim and that lesson went really good he's progressing really well and we are hoping to get him on a baptisimal date soon!
Day 4: Exchanges! We started off our day with district council another great district council! I learned a lot and learned a ton about the atonement of Jesus Christ! After words we went on exchanges with the Zone Leaders I had exchanges with Elder Sleight and we taught this girl named Selena and it went super good she opened up to us and we really got to know what her need is!
Day 5: Exchanges Pt.2! We did a lot of finding today we started off at the mall we had some success there but no numbers but we got to know some more people. We then left and went to TCC and there was literally no one there so we just sat down and talked it was so nice and much needed. Elder Sleight helped me a ton with how to become a better leader I learned a lot from him and he's a great leader and missionary and a great zone leader i'm so glad to have him.
Day 6: Branch MTC! Today we put on a branch MTC for the branch missionaries it went so good. We taught them how to find, how to share the gospel naturally and what to do when we invite them to lessons. It was so much fun and the branch missionaries really liked it and got a lot out of it. Another good thing that came out of this is we grew a better relationship with our branch missionaries. We then had an activity with the branch where we played live action clue it was a lot of fun and got to know a lot of the branch members so that was awesome!
Day 7: Sabbath day! Today was a great! Sunday is always the best day of the week! Treyson our branch mission leader gave a talk and it was fantastic and I learned a lot. It was the end of a pretty good week. Love Elder Asplund
