tuesday- we did service this morning for a garden owned by the salvation army. it was freezing! but we were basically cleaning out the garden and pulling out the crops and stuff. its always fun to be with the whole zone though. and after the fact it always feel good to give service so im grateful. a memebr family named the beamers had us over for a greenie dinner! all the food was green and so yummy! the coolest thing ever!
wednesday- today was skills and interviews with the zone and president clayton. i learned that missions are all about forgetting yourself and going to work. and things only work out when you do them the lords way. there is no other way. as missioanries we have to opne our mouths or else were giving satan power over us because thats what he wants. we had dinner at the ludlow families house and they have so much candy it was yummy! we tried to drop off a bible to a kid named tristan who was referred from salt lake but his mom wouldnt let us see him so that was really sad because he was interested in the church\
thursday- we had lunch at the stapletons house and shes the cutest lady ever. her and her husband are the oldest memebers in the ward and she loves when we sing with her. they ahve such a sweet spirit in their home. we also taughta short lesson to the goobie family and their cute children. they have a newborn and hes just so cute! we also had a short lesson with sister mcpherson. we also taught an investigator named dannie at dairy queen and it was so cold. but it was the first time i actually taught the whole restoration lesson and it went fairly well and he accepted our invitation to come to church. we had dinner at sis bourgeois house. it was stuffed potatoes and broccoli and cheese on the potatoes so good! i love broccoli so much! then we went to visit the garcia family who are so quiet but so cute!
friday- lunch with sister stapleton and more singing! we met with the walton family to get to know them. they are a young family with a baby on the way and super fun! the spice family had us over and we talked about family history. sister spice is from france and her husband served in france so that was nice. we taught the desir family about eternal families. i explained the book of mormon to the wife who is investigating the church because she is from haiti. it was sweet! its always that last door that you tract into that has the awesome prepared people!
saturday- we visited a member sister cliffe with a relief society counselor names sis ludow. sis clifee actually served some of her mission in montreal way back when so cool!
sunday- fast and testiomny is always so uplifting! our ward mission leaders mom in law sandra came to church two times now and we hopefully will start teaching her next week. she has so much faith and you can tell by how she anwsers questions and with the conviction in what she says.
god really is in the details of our lives. and im grateful for all his tender mercies.
