It has been a crazy week! Everything is flying by so fast!
Monday: I had to go to Cambridge to take care of somethings. I went with one of my favorite Elders in the mission, Elder Campbell. Then the funny things happened. We were out working away when I ask Elder Blanch to call an investigator. He looked at me and said I don't have the phone do you? Well I did not and Elder Johnson did not. So we tore the car apart looking for it. Then Elder Johnson said he saw it on the couch. So we went back to the apartment and tore up the apartment and it was not there. Well we went to the church and I called a member I felt like I need to call. Found out that there was small power outage with some of the branch members. And it was like 15 degrees meaning no heat. So I started to call from the church to make sure everyone was okay. Luckily the all were. So then we called our phone from the church. There was an answer. It was Elder Campbell. He accidentally took our phone! So then we had to met him half way and grab the phone. That took the rest of the night.
Tuesday: It was pretty cold Tuesday. But we did some tracting! Then I had to meet with a few people. We ran up to my new executive secretary's house so we could talk about some things. He lives with his in-laws who are members so we ate there for dinner which was nice.
Wednesday: We had zone conference! I love zone conference! The most exciting thing was announced! We get to do 3 hours of family history a week! I am so excited!!! Then I went on exchanges with the Zone Leaders. We had ministering visits with the stake. I was able to see a sweet kid and encouraged him to go on a mission. I also got to meet with President Birch. I love him! He is an amazing stake president!
Thursday: I was with the zone leaders all day doing missionary work! The hardest part was also some immediate attention branch business happened as well. So that was a little difficult coordinating all that 45 miles away. But it was a good day!
Friday: Well I have been sick recently. So I woke up Friday morning. I did my exercises and got ready and did personal study. Then I passed out. When I mean passed out I was dead! The elders tried to wake me up multiple times and I was dead. They said they were making all sort of noise and I would not budge. I guess the Lord had to make me sleep to get better cause he knew I would not willingly do it. But the good news is when I woke up at noon I felt so much better. Have not felt real sick since then.
Saturday: We had freezing rain in the morning so that was fun! Then we did some finding. We then visited some people. We had the opportunity to go to an inactive/part-member family. She said that she is planning on coming back to church. She has not said that to anyone in years! So we are super excited about that!
Sunday: Sundays are always very busy, especially with tithing settlement. I am fitting in tithing settlement along with all my set appointments with people. So the past 2 Sundays we have not left the church till 5 or 6. But it is amazing to see the continued sustaining power of the Spirit!
I hope all of you have a great Thanksgiving! I love this time of year of cold and love in the air. Just so you know the church has just put out a new Christmas video. It is called He is the Gift. It is very similar to the Because of Him video at Easter. The url is: http://www.mormon.org/christmas.
