Dear Family And Friends,
This was a great week. We started out the week by attending the Temple.
Tuesday was our temple trip. We attended the temple with President and Sister Keyes. We were in the first session of 4 sessions. They had to bring in more chairs into the rooms to seat all the missionaries. It was a great Experience to be there with all the missionaries. After the Temple we had lunch provided by a ward close to the Temple. After lunch President talked with us about family and the importance of them and how after our mission that is our next step in life. In the evening we taught a lesson to the repairman that came out to fix the lock.
Wednesday we did some service for the McCimbergs. We help prep their deck for staining. It was fun. We also dug up a tree. We had a great lesson with Tim. We read from the Book of Mormon with him and talked about the word of wisdom. It went real good.
Thursday we had weekly planning I enjoy being able to talk about our investigators and what we should teach them next and plan for the next week. We did some tracting we talked to a few people. Not a lot of people here are open to talk to us. We tried to see lots of less actives but no one was home.
Friday was exchanges I went to Fleming Park with Elder Vaughn. We had a great day; we talk to lots of people and saw lots of members. It is interesting how in different areas the people respond to us differently. We had a great exchange together and was interesting to think that we went on exchanges in Mary-ville together also.
Saturday we spent the day in a town called Peculluer. It was cool we meet a couple of people that we didn't know and set up some for latter. We found a couple of people that might be interested later. So we have people to come back to.
Sunday we met with our ward mission leader and had a great meeting. Our Church Meetings were on the Restoration and the importance of it. We did some tracting after dinner. While we were tracting we were having a problem finding people interested. The last house we knocked Wade and he was interested and accepted a copy of the Book Of Mormon. It was interesting to see how it was the last house that we found someone and if we gave up and didn't finish we wouldn't of found him.
Thanks for all the letters and the support. I love you all.
Elder Benjamin Allen
