Then after we had personal study we had a companionship study and it was good made some plans for our lessons and all that stuff. Then we had our lunch and then we did some stuff and then went to the church and did a few starting things for our weekly planning and then we had a lesson to go to and it was ok but our person did not show up and we had a less active here so we just talked with her and did our things there. Then we finished there and went over to the church and did our weekly planning and man it is getting to me and just want to be done with it and deal with it anymore. But I am giving all I have to help the area in this planning session.
