This week has been very interesting. Lots of driving and some loss of sleep. I will have to keep this short because the library is closed today out in Lamar.
Monday we had p-day. We were able to take pictures as a district. Then we had dinner with the Ortiz family. Then we went down to Springfield. It was Derek Millers birthday. So the family went down to spend it with the older daughter, Megan, in Springfield.
Tuesday we had time to eat lunch with the Fillmore's. We then had time to say bye to people. We saw the Millers and Mastes family and many others. We also had sports night. It was lots of fun to play volleyball and Dodge Ball. We had a great turn out there.
Wednesday we got up at 2:30am to drive to the Dodge area. This was a long drive and we got there in time but it ended up that the Van from the Mission office was very late. I ended up going with Elder Walton and Elder Goum back to Garden City to work. We had lunch with a member and were able visit a few people after Elder Walton spent hours working on stake paper work. Then we met up back at the building in Dodge City when Elder McIntier got there. Also Sister Brown got here for Lamar also. Then we made the drive back.
Thursday we had time to unpack and meet a few people. We were able to have lunch with Brother Simmons then we helped Pauline move. Then we had dinner with the Clark Family. Then we went over to the Millers to have a lesson over there. They we acting like an investigator family. The sisters were passing them off to us so we could teach them. It ended up that that Brother Miller then told us that they were members and he was the AWML (a ward mission leader). Then I was able to talk to Jarred. He is doing great but working through legal things before he can be baptized.
Friday we had District Leader Interviews. Then we saw Pauline and Jamie and Melody. Then we were able to visit with Marcus and Ben and his family. Had a great day.
Saturday we spent most of our time at the church building. We had lunch with the Fillmore's. Then after Priesthood Session the ward had Ice Cream for us to Eat. This was a great Day.
Sunday we started off watching the first Session at the Church Building. It was only the Missionaries and the Clark family for all the Sessions. Then we again had lunch at the Fillmore's. Then we were able to watch the last session with the Millers. It ended up that Opel and Brittney and Jarred and Derek’s friend were all there. This was a great time. Then we had time to have a Lesson with them all. Then we had dinner with all of them at the Church Building and then played Dodge Ball and Volleyball.
