Weekly Mission Report – Sept. 26th

Hey Ya’ll,

Hope ya’ll have had a great week. This week has been pretty busy for us. We spent a lot of time this week finishing our family/member mission plan. It took a lot more work then we though but I think its going to be really good for the ward. We are excited to see how things go with it. We also had to prepare for Zone Training Meeting (ZTM) this week. It came together really well. I presented a power point to the missionaries about member missionary work. My companion talked more about it and made a list of ways missionaries and members can work more closely together. Our zone had been struggling a little bit as far as work but after ZTM things have improved a lot across the zone. That’s always exciting to see.

This week we decided that we wanted to do something called trailer park Wednesday. Its where we take some time and go knock trailer parks. You usually find a lot of humble people that are willing to listen. Also you get cool stories. We tried it this week and had one person ask us to come back. We also had some crazy dude come out and yell at us for 10 minutes about how he has lost all faith in God and then he shut the door in our face. The Bro was crazy!

This week we were doing service for a soup kitchen and they gave us lobster. It was so good! We boiled it up and dipped it in butter and garlic. We were eating like Kings. I don’t know what it is about this area but we have made some really good food here. I guess I’m trying to keep up with my Dad who always tells me about the amazing food he is making back at home. We are going to have to have a couple cook offs when I get home.

So, we have this guy in the ward who is pretty young. He gained a testimony of the Book of Mormon and promised the Lord to share it with people. So he goes tracting all the time on his own. He always sets us up with appointments with people that he has found and every time we go with him they don’t answer. It’s so sad and I feel so bad, but he never loses faith and just keeps trying. Its so cool though. I cant believe it. We are praying so hard that one of these people that he finds will stay interested and start to meet with us and him. I know that he would love that.

Its been a pretty good week though.  I hope ya’ll have a great week and thanks for all you do.

This is what you do when you have a trailer park that has a bad drug problem and you want to get rid of that stigma. You name it Happy Acres and paint all the trailers happy colors.
