ITS GOOD TO FEEL REJUVENATED!
so the first half of the week was kinda boring cuz we didnt do anything... elder crowton just kinda packed all week! then thursday was transfers! and i got my new companion Elder McCurdy. he's from chandler az and wrestled for basha high school! dad, he said youve talked to him a couple of times! hes an awesome kid with a pure heart and ready to serve the Lord so we got to work after a session of weekly planning!
we had a solid friday, meeting a few of the members in the ward then bringing him to the Brazzells, one of my favorite families thats investigating! then we went to the sisters to try and see how we can help each other and our area. after that short meeting we were supposed to hurry over to the church for a cookie baking contest in which the missionaries were the judges. on our way biking to the church, a guy who we had been trying to see for a long time was outside so we talked to him and were able to set up an appointment with him! we were super pumped after that, but we were late to the activity!
general conference was awesome! i felt like the first session was meant for my investigators! to bad none were there... :( oh well just means that we are going to show those videos throughout the week to our investigators. the second session i felt like it was meant for me and i learned a lot. then priesthood session which is always amazing, and sunday was good but it was really hard. i spent more effort trying to stay awake then paying attention so im going to make sure to read those when next months ensign comes out!
we ate lunch with bishop which was really fun! hes the coolest bishop when it comes to helping out with missionary work!
we had dinner with the Zimmerman's and i learned how not to purpose! lol they are an awesome family and Brother Zimmerman definitely knows the importance of family in his busy schedule of trying to become a dentist!
its been a good week! i know that the Lord knows us all personally and he knows the people we need in our life. ive been rejuvinated and im ready to work hard! love you mom!
