Hey mom,

Then after that we planned our day out and then we had our personal study and that was good and the real things that was going through my mind were just thoughts in general and they were a lot and just got going through them and was getting lots of thoughts out of my head and just sat and listened to the things that I was thinking about. But still had a good study. Then we did a companionship study and made some plans that were really good and had lots good ideas. Then we went and grabbed lunch and we then went to the church and had some time to do online prosoliting and it was great and the best then we did some finding and then we went and had an appointment that was really interesting but we left that appointment just like well she was nice and all but I am not going back there again and so we dropped her and then made our way and did more finding and meet up with the other elders and we drove to our dinner appointment and that was great and we had a great time and then we drove out to a members house and did some moving stuff around and then we had our exchange review and it was good and talked about lots of good things. Then we went to the church and we did our updates with the elders here in Cranbrook on people the district is teaching. Then we started our exchanges with them and I am with a former companion Elder Rice.

So we started our morning off as usual as it gets and then we got ready and did some planning and then into our personal study.

Then we did our companionship study and then we headed our way to the church and had a correlation meeting and talked the work here in Cranbrook. Then we came back to the apartment and had a very good time and had lunch and changed and then we drove out to a place called Grasmere and there we helped a member move somethings that they needed help with and it was great to be able to help them. Then we changed and then we were told the US boarder was 10 mins. away so we drove to it and there was a line of cars and we turned around we took a picture of some hills that we could see clearly in person and those were in America and it was just a cool experience to have. Then we drove back into Jaffray and went to our recent converts house and we did another new member lesson with them and talked about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and what they had experienced and their testimonies and it was such a great experience. Then we drove to dinner after that and had a very good time there and we had lots of good things happening and then we made ojr drove back to Cranbrook and we did a exchange review and then met up with our original comps and exchanged back.

Saturday- So we got up and did our normal routine that we do every morning and got into that and our planning and then we had our studies. Personal study was good and been looking into the gospel topics area in gospel library and it was great and was able to get some more knowledge of how to teach the doctrine we teach. Then right after that we had our companionship study and made plans for our lessons and what people we are going to stop by. Then we did a few things and then we had a nice lunch and then we headed to the church where we did our weekly planning for the week.

Then had a companionship study and made plans for the people we are teaching and then we got our things ready and then right into driving to Jaffray. We were there for the most of our day. So we got into Jaffray and had our correlation meeting and talked about the work and what was going on and how the branch can help and it is so great to have that support behind us. Then we went to our recent converts house and did some service for them and getting things all figured out and helping them and they are so grateful for what we do and that fun stuff. Then we drove to another appointment we had and that fell through but we will see where it goes. Then we visited some more people and then had our dinner appointment and such a solid family that we have and them doing all they can to help the work go. But then we headed to another appointment that fell through as well and headed back to Cranbrook and we picked up some things from a member and then talked for a bit to end our night.

Love all that you do for me and grateful for all that you do and hope that your week goes well and God bless.
