Then we had a companionship study and we made plans for lessons and then learned from each other. Then made a good lunch and then right into our updates with our district leaders and we met the one here in the church and we then had updates with him and then we did some weekly planning with them and showed them the way that the mission wants to plan. Then we finished that meeting and then had a correlation meeting and that was nice and got good info to our ward leaders and what they needed to do. Then we had updates with the other elders and we then did a few minutes of weekly planning and then we drove to our bishops house and had a wonderful meal and a good time. Then we went to an appointment and it was good it was basically a YSA get together. And it was good and had a real good spirit here. And then we went out and did finding and talked with some interesting people and then we came back to the apartment and did some stuff for our day tomorrow.

And we both drove out to Jaffray and we helped a member out there move and that was fun and we basically did the heavy lifting there and that was good and then we came back to the church where we met up with the other elders and they got done with their interviews for our investigators getting baptized tomorrow. And that was good and we then took our lunch and that was good and we then did our companionship study and made plans and learned as well and then dove into our weekly planning that we did not finish yesterday. And just finished making plans for them and then we did some online prosoliting and made contact with people and then we went out and did some finding in Jaffray and then we had dinner and it was good we got fed Deer, Elk, and Moose steak and it was pretty good and really enjoyed it and had a great meal and talked about recieving revelation. And that was really good.

And a great way to end our night.

So we got into our personal study and that was good and we learned a lot and got spiritually ready for conference. Then we went to the church and had a great first session and man it was awesome and just able to see and hear what they had to say was great and man it was nust really good and took some really good notes but it will be a reread for sure. So we got up aftet the first session ended and we were able to go and had a good lunch and then we drove out to Jaffray and watched our second session and it was really good and we were able to watch it with our investigators that were getting baptized soon after that. It was also a goot second session. Then that ended and we got ready for the baptism and it was resally good and we had a lot of support from our branch out here and that was great they were able to do that and it was great. Then after the service we had priesthood session and that was awesome and man just an overall a really good spiritual day and a lot to look back on and reflect and just a really good day.

Sunday- This was also a good day and it was such a spiritual day and learning. So we got up and did the normal routine that we do and got ready and planned out the day and then right into our personal study and learned there and what I wanted to reflect on. Then we made our way to the church and watched Conference and man i just can't say enough how amazing it was and able to have that there and able to listen and ponder what we needed. And then we drove back to the apartment and grabbed somethings and also had a companionship study and made plans for our lessons that way and then had lunch at a really awesome members house and it was great and just able to have that there is another major blessing. And it was good then we went to the church again and it was great and man a real good way to end conference and to be on this spiritual high. And then we did some planning and also sending out reports and then we drove to dinner and had a good meal and just reflected on conference and what we all learned then we went out and we did some finding and able to talk with a guy named Mathias and he is a good guy and was able to teach a small portion of the restoration and he seemed interested and we picked up him as a new person which was good. Then we did some confirmation of our day tomorrow and then went to our appointment for the night and we taught really well and it was good and able to teach someone else there and he also seemed solid as well which was good and just another really good day.

Monday- So we got up and did the normal routine that we do every day and got ready and made some plans and it was good and then right into good old personal study. And it was good and played catch up in reading but gettimg a lot out of it. So after that study we went to our district meeting and that was good and able to help each other and just able to feel the love there. And then we went back to our apartment and we did our usual things and had some lunch and a companionship study and made great plans for our appointment we had today. So we then we had a lesson with a guy named Matt and he is 17 years old and i had my doubts on him but we went in and taught and man it was a really good lesson and he is interested and just solid. Then we finished our lesson there and we went to the church and we djd some updates with the APs and let them know what is going on here. Then we had some time for online prosoliting and getting contact with our investigators. We then drove to our dinner appointment and saw one of the members that was invited over we picked him up and then we had a really good dinner and had a great time and good message. Then we drove back and dropped off our member and we had a potential that lived across the street so we stopped by and we got in and caught up on what happened and then we were able to teach them and that was great and just had a good lesson. And they are interested and are willing to learn which is great. Then we went to a members house and did a follow up visit and then shared a great message. Then we drove back to the church and we had some online prosoliting.

Tuesday- Man this morning sucked. So I got woken up with some pain in my abdomen and then from there I was just in pain and eventually it went away but an hour later. So it was painful but it was just a little time. Then we got up as usual and did the normal routine and then we got ready and then we had planning to do and then we went right intk our studies and that was good and did some learning in my purpose and just good to relearn again and refresh. But then we went into our companionship study and made plans for our lessons that we had later in the day. And then we made lunch and then right into some contacting and it was good and then we drove out to Jaffray and had our correlation meeting and talked about the next steps for our recent converts and what the branch could do. Then we finished that meeting and we did some online prosoliting and that was good and then we drove to a ladies house and there we did some service for her. So we did some hay removal for her and her minter horses. And it was a really good time and just did it and just as well good to do service for people in the community.Then we had to get going from there as we had to go to dinner and the family we had dinner with was such a solid family and they do so much and just can't ask for any better. We then drove to our recent converts house and started the new members lessons and to help them grow their faith even more. But then we drove home for the night.

It has been a busy week and just a whirl wind of stuff which is good but glad to be busy at this point of my mission. But thanks for all that you do and have a blessed week.
