"For in that day, for my sake shall the Father work a work, which shall be a great and a marvelouswork among them;" - 3 Nephi
busy week! I can't believe all these things I wrote down happened all just this
week. I had an interview with President this week, just a quick
get-to-know-you. They are fantastic. It was kind of the same for every
missionary this time, but I'm just as confident in him as I was in President
also had Sister's District meeting, a meeting to organize the upcoming music
devotionals, district breakfast, district leadership council, zone training
meeting preparation, and yeah I guess that's it but it was good. We got a lot
done and all the missionaries in this zone are so on top of it. I think I had
more to say about a few of those meetings, but they are just meetings so I
don't remember anything significant to mention here...
ankle is finally doing better! This morning I went to the apartment gym and
used the elliptical instead of the treadmill and I'm doing
great. Feels so much better to do that in the morning. I don't know if I can
run yet because it's still a little bothersome, but no longer painful. We went
to the physical therapist again so I think that's helping.
Wimmer also went to get new glasses at the optometrist. I really liked the
place we went because (as a missionary I probably shouldn't be saying this)
their music station they had playing was awesome. I don't remember any of the
songs in particular but Sister Wimmer and I both had a little fun listening
while trying on glasses. AND you really know your companion when you can choose
her glasses for her, I found a pair she really liked and ended up getting after
spending some time browsing.
were able to get in with the Fischingers, they're less active but they could
totally come back to church soon. They just don't have many friends (because
they don't come, easy fix) but they want us to come back and bake stuff and visit
more so that'll be good.
Childress family (semi-active, the husband isn't active at all though) had us
over for dinner. We were a little disappointed that he was working but we had a
great time with her and her daughters. Definitely established a good connection
and had a great time.
Keene family is doing alright (mom and 2 sons not members, husband was less
active before he passed away a few years ago), their dog just died unexpectedly
this week and they'll be out of town this weekend, but they've been having a
lot of members over for dinner lately and it's going really well. So we are
planning on inviting them to take the lessons again soon.
loved girl's camp! She bore her testimony there and her mom is getting closer
to allowing her to be baptized. They have us on the dinner calendar this week!
Olzaks also have us for dinner tonight. Using dinner appointments works so
well. It's kind of a weird family set up: non-member father, less-active
mother, active 16-year-old daughter, and a 3-year-old. We are planning on
sharing a message about Jesus Christ tonight and getting to know them better,
especially to help the 16-year-old get involved with the young women in our
ward (she still goes to a ward in another stake since that's where she was
baptized). I think helping her transition here will help her mom return to
activity and her dad take the lessons sometime.
much work to do, it's awesome. More this week! And then transfer calls this
weekend, we're anticipating little change especially with our companionship but
we'll find out.
