So this was a bit of a slower week for us.
Monday after P-Day was over, we had dinner with the Cro*** and we
shared the "Because He lives" video with them. After that, we tried to
contact some people but nothing much came from it.
Tuesday we had temple service in the morning. We walked over to the
church with the 1st Ward Elders and we worked on digging holes and
moving some bushes around. We had to go through a ton of weed block
and it was a pain in the rear! We came back to the apartment and
changed before walking to our appointment with Don. On the way to his
home, a member from the 1st Ward saw us and picked us up!
Unfortunately he drove away before we knocked on the door and
discovered he was not home! We walked back to the apartment and took
lunch. We walked over to Central Point East and met with Mike. Due to
a mix up, he wasn't able to come to church this last Sunday so he was
pretty bummed about that. We read some chapters out of 1st Nephi with
him and it was a good visit. We then tried to contact a couple of the
members over in that area that I didn't know before having dinner.
When we finished up there, we headed off to go back to our neck of the
woods to contact a few people but no one was around.
Wednesday morning we did weekly planning because I was not going to be
around on the day we normal did weekly planning. When we finished up
with that, we rearranged our apartment for our lunch. One of the
members called us and asked us if we could help him with his food run
and we said yes. He even took us to McDonald's for lunch haha! We
helped him out with that and then helped out the Gold Hill Elders with getting
their truck into the shop. When we were done with that, we went to our
ward's silent auction for Girl's camp and Scout Camp. Elder Seymour
walked away with a board for a skateboard and I got a BYU blanket from
a member as well as a back massager haha! It was super fun! We then
helped the Sister missionaries get the couch a member got them into
their apartment with the help of Brother Thur***.
Thursday I was up at 5:15 to get ready for my first ever missionary
leadership council. I went up with the zone leaders and the Medford
3rd Ward Elders and I slept almost the whole way there haha! It was so
awesome seeing all of my former companions! We were instructed from
some of the people in the Missionary Department about finding and
asking for referrals. We didn't get home until about 8ish and then I
had ward correlation to end the night.
Friday morning I had district meeting. We talked about our study
habits that could be improved and then did some activities, such as
biscuits and gravy!:) It was so good! After district meeting, the
Sisters did an Easter egg hunt and then did the activity where we had
the eggs with different items in it that represented Jesus Christ's
last week. It was awesome, considering we did it in front of the
temple! After that we and the Gold Hill Elders did some service for one of the
Gold Hill members. Elder Porter and I painted, move a washer, and
worked on a dam haha! It was a ton of fun! We even had chimichangas!
We then saw the Froel*** and got Elder Porters finger fixed up! He
dropped a trailer on it a day or so ago and it was swelling bad so
Sister Froel*** fixed it up for him!
Saturday was General Conference! I stayed in Gold Hill and watched it
with one of Gold Hill's members. We hung out and had lunch before the
afternoon session with the Ward Mission Leader (WML) in the Gold Hill ward.
The WML was one of the contractors to build some of the temples out
here! It was super cool seeing the pictures and stuff! After the
afternoon session, we came back into Central Point and went to the
Priesthood session. We got pizza with the ward and then I got Sonic to
keep up with tradition! It was great!
Sunday was filled with conference. We watched it at the church and
then passed out at the Stam***! We then contacted a couple of people
and shared an Easter message with Joe and a family history message
with Adam. That is pretty much how Sunday went!
That's all I got! I'm grateful for this wonderful conference we just
had! I know this church is true! There is no doubt!
