Then we had some lunch and then we did some planning of a meeting that we are doing tomorrow night with our District leaders. Then we had to go to an appointment that we had and it was really good and we doing a little but of a refresher and it was a great lesson on the restoration. Then we had another appointment and with a inactive and read about the gospel of Jesus Christ in the Book of Mormon and he is doing good and helping him getting back into the church. Then we went to the church and we dropped things off to the other elders and then we did a little bit of weekly planning and then we had our dinner and they made it July 4th themed and it was great and so happy that we have great members today support us.

Sunday- So we got up and did the normal routine that we do every day and got ready and dressed and put our things together and made the trip out to Jaffray for church. This is the last time I will be attending the Jaffray branch services and it is weird to say that and think it. But it was a good service and had lots of good testimonies given and they were really well done. Then after that we had Sunday school and talked about Acts 2 and it was really good conversation going and just had a great things said to have us think. Then we did some mingling around and we then went to our Branch presidents house and said my goodbye to them and had a great time while we were there and then we drove and stopped by a investigator and he wasn't home. But we then drove back to the church and did our personal study. I went and looked into helping our investigators keep commitments and ot was great and loved looking into it and it is great. Then we went to a members house and had a good visit and as well got to say goodbye and just had a good time.

Then we finished up there and then we drove back into Cranbrook for an appointment with a part member family and he is such a great guy and helping him as much as we can to help. But as well said my goodbye to them to finish our night.

But we talked about a lot of good things and then we had some good lunch and then we had our companionship study and made plans for the appointments we had today. Then got in service clothes and made our way to the house where we were on Saturday and helped the potential out with the rest of her weeds. It was not to bad the only bad thing would be it was really warm and man worked up a good sweat. But got another good chunk of it done. Then we went to the church and we did our updates with our district leaders and see how the districts are going and how we can help them with their issues or concerns. Then finished that and did some car things and then we drove back to the apartment and changed and we made a few stop bys and then we went to dinner and it was a great dinner and then we finished off our night with visiting our bishop and his family.

Tuesday- So this morning was kinda just ehhh. So we got up and got ready then we drove to the Nissan dealership because our car was having some problems. So we were at the dealership for a good 3 hours taking care of that. But then we came back and we took some lunch and then we had to give some updates to the APs about the zone and what is going down here. Then we got our things together and made our way our to Jaffray and it was going to be a good day out there. So we got in there and we went to our recent converts house and helped her stacked up wood and that was fun then during this my allergies were acting up and it was killer and it happened near the end. Then we got some stuff and went and had dinner at the golf course and it was great. Then we went down to the campground where most of the members were and went around and did some visits and then talked with our branch mission leader and it was great. Then made oir way back to Cranbrook and to finish our night we called up the elders and got info for our meeting with the stake president tomorrow.

Thanks for the love and support you have given me for the past 2 years. Mom and Dad see you next week. Sis talk with you in couple weeks. It has been great and let us see what life had in store for me know.
