Dear Family and Friends,
This week was a good week for us except for all the appointments that fell through.
Monday we meet with most of the missionaries in the stake and played games and had a fun time. Brother Kincade in the ward gave us a referral. We went to go contact it and he wasn't interested but we found a couple of people around him that were. It is interesting how some times we are led to an area by a referral and find other people to teach.
Tuesday the Embrey’s took the Sister and us missionaries out for lunch. We then did some tracting and tried to see some people. Most of them were not home or just didn't answer.
Wednesday we had District meeting. It was on the importance of the Book of Mormon. After District meeting we went on exchanges with the District Leader plus his companion. I went with Elder McCurdy up to Maryville. Elder McCurdy is also from Arizona. We had a great day walking since the car went in for an oil change. We meet with Herman Crumb and all of his brothers and sister. They live in St Joe 1st ward. We talk with lots of college students since they make up almost the whole town.
Thursday we had weekly planning. We tried to see people but no one was home. We went on team ups with Brother Tunks and while we were out we witnessed a car running into another. We visited with Sister Stocket and some other single sisters.
Friday we had a little better day we were able to find some more people that accepted a Book of Mormon and would be interested in meeting with us.
Saturday we worked in Savannah and had a great day with the sun out and with the weather in the 50's. We were able to meet with most of the members in Savannah. We handed out a couple of Books of Mormon. It is a very small town we walked most of the day. We had dinner with the Vancillas and it was the first time eating with them.
Sunday we had two investigators that made it to church, Shanna and Debbie. Sacrament meeting was on the importance of daily Family and Individual prayer and Scripture study plus church attendance. After Church we had planned to teach Shanna but that didn't work. Brother Dinning was taken to the hospital. We went to give him a blessing and couldn't teach Shanna after since there was no male at the Dinning’s place and couldn't find one to go with us. She is still reading from the Book of Mormon and coming to church.
Thanks for everything that you all do for me. I hope you have a great week.
Elder Benjamin Allen
