May 27, 2014

This week has been Great.

Monday we had P-Day. We spent time in Great Bend emailing and shopping and sending letters.

Tuesday we had district meeting in Hays. Before District Meeting we went to thrift shops with sister McCowan. We were able to find some cheap things. We then had lunch and left to go back to Great Bend. Then we went over to see Judy Stemm. Then we had dinner with the Relief Society sisters. Then we did some service for the church by picking up trash around the church building.  Elder Gonzalez found a $50 in the trash.

Wednesday we went to Lyons and worked all day with Brother Solie. Brother Solie is in the bishopric in the ward. We only were able to get in to 3 doors all day. One house was the ward mission leader and one was the Tervino house and then an investigator in Lyons.

Thursday we worked in Great Bend. We had weekly planning and visiting former investigators.   Then the Perez's family dropped off food for dinner. We had lots of lessons with people on their doorsteps.

Friday we went out to Larned. It rained all day when we were walking. We were able to meet the family that we talked to last week. Had a great lesson with Jacob and Charmin, which moved from Empora. Then we had dinner with the McMillans.

Saturday we had Ayanna baptism at 11am. We also had breakfast and studies with Brother MCMillan while we filled the Baptismal font. The Baptism was great. Then we went to Sister McCowan antics shop and did service at her house. We also went out to eat with her in Great Bend. That night we had sports night at the church building. While leaving the church building we had a great time taking pictures of the sunset.

Sunday we had church. Ayanna was confirmed a member. We had a few investigators at church and had a great time at church. Then we went out to contact former Investigators out of the Area book. We first saw John Link. When we got to his house he was not there but he pulled up with his father and friend. The Father and friend are president and vice president in a motorcycle club that goes in to party to help the bikers find God in their life. We had a nice conversation with them also an interesting prayer. The Siefkes feed us dinner and then we went over to see Judy and Judy. We talked about the importance of coming to church and Baptism.

Monday we had P-Day in Salina. The zone leaders gave us more miles to drive up there. We spent the whole day with the zone. We played Nerf and basketball and soccer. This was fun to spend time with other missionaries than the ones in Great Bend.

Tuesday we had interviews with President Bell. I was the first one in the Salina Zone. This was nice to talk to him and see what I can do to help me on my mission. Then we had district meeting and District Lunch.

This week has been nice. We had some rain and wind and lots of sun. Thanks for the letters and mail.

Elder Andrew Allen.
