Dear Family and friends,
This was a great week. We did a lot of walking since we didn't have the car or the bikes.
Tuesday we did some service helping a member prepare to move. After dinner we went to some active families and shared the ward mission plan and the stake mission plan. We also help them create a family mission plan to work with the ward and stake mission plan. It is so much easier to do missionary work when you have a plan.
Wednesday we had the first district meeting this transfer. Our district leader is Elder Prax, he had a training on working with members. We did some tracting and we handed out 3 Books of Mormon. Tracting in Raymore is just not effective the people don't come to their doors and are never home when we come back.
Thursday we had a conference call with part of the mission. President Keyes talked with us about the importance of the sacrament and why we take it every week. We had weekly planning it went well. We were planning on helping the Thellens move but it got moved to Saturday so we tried to see lots of formers in the area book.
Friday we walked tons and talked to some nice people. One person we talked to brought us water out. Tim one of our investigators gave us a ride home after we talked with him and read with him from The Book of Mormon.
Saturday we had studies then we walked around finding some address so we could update the area book. We help move the Thellens move out of the ward. That was a fun service project.
Sunday we had meetings and Church. It was also Fast Sunday. There were two baby blessings that happen also. Church was good. We had a couple of part member families make it to church. I had the opportunity to teach Sunday School, it was on repentance. In Elders Quorum we talked about family history.
Thanks for all the letters. I hope you all have a great week.
Elder Benjamin Allen
