Another week down and a good one for sure! First and foremost, I hope all you guys had a great Easter weekend! I remember it was just last Easter that I received my call...and time has just flown since then! I am so grateful to be out here in the great state of West Virginia!
Week started off pretty good! We had an interesting lesson earlier in the week. Started teaching a woman about Joseph Smith and some how she got WAY off track on how long she used to breast feed all of her babies! We ended the uncomfortable conversation quickly!! haha
This week was transfers! We lost Elder Griffith in our district and picked up a new guy named Elder Harris. So we had a district council and got to know him and set some goals for this transfer. Should be a good one! We had car and apartment inspections...this is the first time our place has been inspected for years. So we had to really get a move on and clean up. It took hours but we passed with flying colors! All except our microwave...ALWAYS COVER YOUR FOOD PEOPLE! I understand what my mom was talking about now!
One day in particular was rough hahah! We went tracting down this long road filled with mutts, of course! One dog got a face full of the Word of God, as I had to tap him on the nose with the BOM! Plus, it was soooo hot so we were sweating to death! Haha but we ended up having a good lesson at the end of the day! Also taught a German lady and I loved her accent Haha.
Our weekend was good too! Saturday, we had a lesson with a couple we are teaching and they made us some ramps! These are popular this time of year. They are similar to onions. They were actually super good. Haha but very strong scented! Lots of Listerine after because we had to talk that next morning...good thing that microphones only carry out sound and not the scent of our breath. We would have cleared the chapel! It was a such a good meeting though and lots of people came so it made for a great Easter Sunday. We ate Easter dinner with the mission grandma, Grandma Dawna and her family too. Was a great way to end the week!
Spiritual Thought: I was fortunate enough to study a lot on the purpose of Easter this week and the resurrection. A very popular scripture 1 Corinthians 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
It is comforting to know that we will all be resurrected and be with our families forever throughout eternity, if we will be obedient to Gods commandments!
I hope you all have a great week!
Thank you for your love and support!
