This week has been long.
Monday I packed and got the area book ready to leave the area.
Tuesday we spent time cleaning the apartment and the area book. We spent 3 hours cleaning the area book and organizing the teaching records. Elder Howell is training a new missionary so he wants it to be clean and up to date. Then we had dinner with Brandon Trevino. We played soccer with him. Then we went to the Siefkes to have a picture.
Wednesday we drove down to Wichita. In Wichita we had a transfer devotional and a music fest called "KWM Folk Music Fest" where different missionaries performed their original songs for us. Then Elder Shaffer and I left for Wellington. We live a hour from Wichita so we had a fair drive. Then we had dinner with the members we live with. The Brumages live in Argonia about 30 miles from Wellington. The church building is in Wellington.
Thursday we tried to contact a referral that ended up not in our area but we were able to contact Francen a friend of a member in Topeka. It ended up that she is a friend with the Craft family that was in the Lake Shawnee ward in Topeka. We had a great day traveling to a few of our small towns.
Friday we had zone training in Wichita. We had a great meeting about our mission goal of 50 baptisms in June. This is a great goal for our mission because we have only had a max of 30 baptisms. Then we had zone lunch and a zone picture. Then we went back to Wellington to have dinner and work. At 8 pm president bell called and told Elder Shaffer to go and get his tick bite looked at so we ended up traveling back to Wichita. We ended up staying the night at our district leaders house in Wichita because we got out of the ER at 10pm.
Saturday we drove home and got ready. Elder Shaffer got sick so we stayed home all day. I got my journal up to date.
Sunday we had church. We ended being late to church. Our car had only 50 miles to drive before it was empty. We meant to fill up the car on Saturday but we never went back out so we forgot. Church we great. The ward is very small and I am the Elders Quorum President and Elder Shaffer is the Ward Mission Leader. Then we had dinner with Bishop Porter and his wife. Then we were able to have a great day and we made it home safe with just the right amount of gas to get home.
