Feb. 16, 2015

This week has been great.  Lots has happened.  Transfer time is here and I am moving to Lamar, Colorado now. Transfers are this Wednesday. 

Monday we had p-day in Wichita. Most of the Newton Zone came down for p-day, lots of fun with all the missionaries.  Then we went by Wily's so Elder Clay could get a hair cut.

Tuesday we had Zone Conference. The Wichita and Newton and Derby zones got together at the mission office. There were lots of missionaries. We talked about Elder Holland’s talk on Feed my Sheep. We also talked about using the Questions of the soul to help resolve questions our investigators have. President Williams, the stake president, came and talked to the missionaries in the Wichita Stake. They feed us lunch and all had a fun time playing a game with President Bell.  Then we left to go to dinner. We had dinner with the Marshall family. Then we went out with President Crawford, the Elders Quorum President to visit the Roath family. This was a great visit with this less active Family. 

Wednesday we had weekly planning. During weekly planning the Zone Leaders came by to do Stake Reports and Apartment inspections. Then we had time to go out and work. We biked around the neighborhood talking to people and visiting investigators. Then we had dinner with the Peterson family. After dinner we had time to go out with Brother Cardon to contact a new family. We were not able to find the house. Then we went by the church to pick up crafts the activity day girls made for us for Valentines Day.

Thursday we had a day to do service. We helped brother Grantham paint his dance studio. Then we saw Sister Berreth. Then we had dinner and then helped move Brother Grantham’s sister.

Friday we had district meeting. It was the last district meeting for sister Judy in our district. Then we had time to contact a few people before dinner. We had dinner with Vam Skiver family. Then we saw Lafe Olson.

Saturday we had stake conference. At 10 am we had the baptism of Cora who the sisters taught. Then we had time to ride around seeing a few people. Then we had dinner with the Vickers.  Sister Vicker’s ex-husband was visiting the kids and stayed for dinner so it was interesting having dinner with this family on Valentines Day. Then we had stake conference.  Elder Real came to this conference. Funny thing is I meet him in Topeka when he came for stake in November. All the missionaries in the stake sang a few songs during the adult session.

Sunday we had stake conference. Elder Real talked about faith and fear.  This was a great meeting. After the meeting I was able to talk to Elder Real and thanked him for speaking at two stake conferences for me. He said it was funny that I was following him around to the state in Kansas. Then we went to visit a less active with Brother Down. Had time to visit Sister Berreth and Brother Shun and then had dinner with the Marshals.

This has been a good week. Thanks for all the emails and letters. Next email will be from Colorado. Have a great week.

Snow today as a birthday present
