Then we were able to see many people before dinner with the Mackeys. Then we had sports night. The Millers, Jarred and Brittney, Bolinger Family all came this week. It was lots of fun because there were only big kids there. Then we talked with Brother Miller about the plan of missionary work.
Wednesday we went on a road trip. We went down to Walsh, Springfield, Two Butts and Campo. We were able to find some less actives that have been not contacted in many years. We had lots of fun. We even had fun on the dirt roads until we got stuck. We ended up in the country for 3 hours until Jarred and Brittney came to pull us out. We tried to call a lot of people. It ended up that only Jarred would talk to us so he came from Lamar to get us. Thanks to him we got home that night. We were able to talk to the Wheat field.
Thursday we had time to see people in town. We were able to talk with Emmit and Jan, Paulina, Sam Kisamore. We were able to have a church tour with Paulina and her date is for May 23. Then we had dinner out at the Millers. We were able to talk about less actives and church with him. Then we went to wish Pete a Happy Birthday. Pete is a recent Convert and our down stairs neighbor. It ended up that Pete was not able to come to the door. So we talked to Stana a less active and our apartment manager. We talked to her and Rick. Then as we were going into our building we saw lots of people walking in to Pete’s place. So we went to look into it. It ended up that Pete fell down in the kitchen and cut open his eyelid. We got Stana and she asked us to call 911. Pete passed out; we ended up giving him a blessing. The EMT then showed up and helped Pete. They took him to the Hospital. Then we had to talk to the police.

It was great to learn from them. Elder Holland went up to Sister Williams and talking to us and ended up Yelling to us in Sister Williams face. He grabbed her head and shook it for a second. He also did it again with another Elder and kissed him on his head. This was a great meeting. They all talked about thing we can do to help improve as a mission.
