The subject line tells the major event of the week. On Thursday we got a call from President Daines letting us know that Elder Decker was needed in an area down in Columbus. Some missionaries were struggling with getting them and the ward on the same picture of missionary work. But luckily I knew it was what needed to happen. Last Tuesday during interviews right before we were done I felt impressed to tell President that if he ever felt inspired that Elder Decker should leave that he should do it and I will take care of the stake calling end of it. Well he took it like I definitely will if I do so but I probably wont since he will only have around 9 weeks at transfers. Well problems occurred and we were able to get Elder Decker down to help some other missionaries. I know that is where the Lord would have him be.
A highlight form the week was I got to go to Mission Leadership Council!! I love MLC! I was invite to sing a special musical number with Elder Pike. I also was invited so I could participate in some of the councils and discussions we had. I realized how much I missed being a part of the mission. Most the time out here in the middle of no where we are not a huge part of the mission. We only see other missionaries at zone conference and zone training meetings. We just see the other Coshocton Elders since we are a district, smallest district in the mission.
We had a sweet lesson on Wednesday! We were able to see our investigator Sonja. And her friend Sara was there! It was an amazing lesson! We taught them the restoration. When we got to the part of the Book of Mormon we gave one to Sara. You would have thought we handed her a million dollars! She was so excited! It was so great to see someone care for something I treasure.
The Branch is still doing good! We started planning for the Christmas party which I am super excited for!
That is basically my week in a nutshell of what I can remember! I don't remember things as well as I use to. But I think that is because I have never been doing so much all in a row. But I am loving it every day more and more. Of course there are days when I want to go home and see my mom, enjoy her cooking and be with friends I have not seen in almost 2 years or more. But the joy it is to be a disciple of Christ is far better then the things I miss. (How much I miss my mom and her cooking almost is at the joy I have as a missionary.) But the best part is this joy is not just for missionaries. It is for everyone that participates in the work of salvation!
