9/28/ 2015 exchanges


This week was a pretty good week. We didn't do a whole lot at the beginning of the week. We mostly did a lot of finding. On Monday we went over to a less actives home and when we showed up he was drinking a beer and smoking a cigarette. When he saw us he walked up and said, " Oh no, you caught me being bad!" He was pretty funny about it. He is a pretty funny guy. He likes the missionaries and he is slowly making his way back to the church. Since we met with him last (a few weeks ago) he has came to church every singe week since then. So there is progression with him.

Wednesday we started the exchange with the Hamilton elders. After district meeting in the morning we had to go to one of the zone leaders lessons because elder Grizzle had to give a baptismal interview for the zone leaders. But we ended up being late to the meeting because district meeting ran later than usual and we also gave two of the sisters in our district a blessing because they wanted one. Elder Grizzle did the baptismal interview and then we went to lunch with the zone leaders to Moose Creek which is an amazing restaurant that serves authentic southern BBQ. I've had their super hot BBQ sauce a few times and it is really good. 

But after lunch we went on the exchange and I stayed in Hamilton with elder Ward. It was only until the next day. it was a pretty short exchange. but I found some feather quills, I asked elder ward if Its could take them because It's have a calligraphy set at home and it would be cool to have feather quills. So he let me take them home. But unfortunately they did not work, So I improvised and Its put some ink cartridges of regular BIC pens in the feathers,  They look great and they write great as well. On Wednesday we had a lesson with one of our investigators that we have not met with in a while, It was a really good lesson. We talked a lot about the temple and other things. Near the end of the lesson, his wife asked us for a blessing. so we gave her one, I was voice. 

On Thursday we had a lesson with the P. family.  If don't know if you remember in my letter last week I told you about how she shared her conversion story. Well this time she asked if her kids would share their conversion stories as well. After all of us had shared our testimonies, the spirit was so strong in their home that it literally felt like we were in the temple. It was a very good lesson. 

On Friday we had interviews with President Wadsworth. It's really like the interviews. I talked with him about Pinesdale to help him understand a little of what is going on there since he is somewhat brand new. But If talked with him about C. He said that he could interview her if she came to the Stevensville  church before 4. So we called C. and she said that she could make it barely.  She got there on time and was able to be interviewed. She said that it was a really cool experience. Now all she needs to do is get interviewed by a general authority. Then she can have baptism!  So we are going to wait until that happens. It probably wont happen for a while since general conference is this weekend. haha! 

I'm excited for general conference! It's  going to be a very interesting conference because there is going to be three new apostles called since L Tom Perry, Boyd K. Packer and, Richard G. Scott died fairly recently. I hope you had a good week. Mine was pretty awesome!
