So this week was a little bit slow in the missionary work aspect of things, Elder Sanford came down sick, a bummer as usual. However it was still a good week! Elder Sanford has a guitar, and via inspiration we wrote a song! Its about the life of Jesus Christ. I think its awesome, but i may be a little partial. A member here is gonna be posting it somewhere this week. lol So ill be sure she tags you or sends it to you or something. What was most amazing was that it was a matter of maybe 2 hours of work on it total. Its just fell together. So Sunday we went around sharing it was a bunch (relatively) of members. One of the members, a Less-Active we visit, let me borrow a guitar so that i can learn how to play too! So we will see if I am able to get a hang of that. lol
Church was good! This time there was like 24 people at sacrament! granted 7 of them were a family from another ward that came to speak. The have 5 kids still at home, 4 that have grown and left the house. Huge family. The three youngest kids sang a primary song for a musical number though. it was seriously amazing. The Youngest was 7, the oldest probably 11 or 12, but they did a great job.
As for where we live. It is the Sands Motel thing. They are part motel part apartments though. And we have an apartment there. Its not bad. Not much counter space and our neighbor smokes like crazy and it sometimes comes through the vents. Thats about it that I could complain about though. We drive a Jeep Compass, not my favorite vehicle, feels cheap, sluggish response in the transmission, ride isnt the greatest. But its more than adequate for our needs! I just dont plan on buying one for myself anytime soon. lol It is different not having members that feed us much, but we do get some extra money from the mission for food, and the other Elders in our district get a bunch of free meat from a food bank they do service at. Like way more than theyll ever need, plus neither of them are big cooks. So they give a lot to us. Weve have ground elk 3 times since of gotten here actually. So Im in heaven with the meat. lol.
We had Zone Conference this week. It was super uplifting and just good stuff. Our Mission President spoke on safeguards for using technology. Its a program the church came out with to train missions with tablets. And even though we arent scheduled to get tablets, he still thought it would be good for use on computers and just life after the mission. I thought it was some great stuff. After him, a Family Services Counselor that works with missionaries in the mission gave us like a peptalk and just got us all feelin good about ourselves. After Zone Conference we had interviews with our Mission President. Always nice to chat with him. haha it was good.
Oh! Sunday night i got pulled over! lol i was like ohhhhh crap, my dads gonna kill me. But dont worry dad. Its all good! The jeep has these daylights that are on when youre in drive, so i thought my headlights were on, but they werent and he just wanted to let us know. hahaha huge relief. lol. huge relief. He even gave us his card and said to ask if we have any questions. lol Super good guy.
Looking forward to a better week with the work this week. Love you guys!
