Sept 29, 2014

This week has been fun. 

The corn and Milo are coming down; the grain elevators are getting busy.  Harvest time.

Monday we spent time helping Teresa, a recent convert, paint her porch and ramp. Then we emailed and went to Hiawatha for P-day. Played games at the park with the sisters. Ended up having dinner with the Rasmussen.

Tuesday we had time to contact potential investigators in Falls City and see Teresa Lewis and meet a few people. It rained for most of the afternoon. We were wet when we got over to the Larson’s for dinner. It was nice to have rain and meet people because of the rain. 

Wednesday we had weekly planning and took time to update our area book and update our ward roster. Then we had time to drive to Seneca. This is a small Catholic town about 45 min from Falls City. We had 2 less actives to try and list of people that talked to missionaries before. We ended

Elder Allen and Elder Pasquale
up finding a family that just moved about a week before and they have a family friend that is a Mormon in Utah and they love Mormons.  We set up at time to see Courtney and her husband. Then we had dinner with the McGiffin family. 

Thursday we had district meeting. The Zone Leaders came to our district meeting and we went on exchanges after lunch. Sister Chapman made us all lunch. I went with Elder Budge to Topeka for the day. This was a fun drive back to Topeka because Elder Budge and I talked about our mission because we meet each other back a year ago when I had been out a transfer. Elder Budge was trained in the Spanish branch it Topeka. We had a appointment with their investigator and dinner with the Barnes. The Barnes were having the Zone leaders living with them a year ago. A year ago I went on exchanges with Elder Blake and we stayed at the Barnes house. This was fun to talk to them again. 

Hiawatha Zone
Friday we had time to do studies and then had to leave for the town we were meeting back at. Then Elder Pasquale and I worked Sabatha and a few other towns on our way back to Falls City. We ended up finding 2 new investigators in Morrill. Then we had dinner and took time to see Tristan, a recent convert, and other families. 

Saturday we had lots of service. We helped Sister Meints put plastic on her windows for winter.  Helped Teresa with putting the sealer on the rest of the ramp.  We also saw Betty and Hot Rod and had lunch with Sister Meints. Then we had time to walk around Falls City delivering flyers for General Conference. 

Sunday we had church. We had great speakers talking about revelation and the Articles of Faith. There were 3 investigators at church this week between the two companionship. We had a branch potluck after church. Then we drove out to Seneca to see Courtney and it ended up that she was not home so we visited the McGiffins and followed up on their missionary work.  Then we stopped in at the Rasmussen house and said hi and told them we missed them at church. 

This week it has been great. It had been cold a few days but more normal weather. I am doing great and loving Falls City and the Hiawatha branch. 

Love Elder Andrew Allen
