Dear Parents and Friend,
Sorry for this not being as long as some but we don't have as much time as most. We played handball just before, and are going to Brother Tracy’s in the ward to get our teeth clean. He is the dentist in Herrisonville.
Tuesday I went to the Doctor and then we did some service for a ward member. In the evening we taught Devi the 3rd new member lesson. It went awesome. We talked about the gospel of Jesus Christ and then went to Fasting and the purpose of it.
Wednesday we had district meeting. It was on the importance of the planning for the investigators and following those plans. For lunch we had authentic Mexican food, which was nice. The members try to make Mexican food but it isn't quite the same as back home. After District Meeting we meet a couple of members that we have never met before. One was brother Kirk. While we were there we gave him a blessing for an ear problem he had. We saw the Bradfords and talk with them about the family proclamation to the world. We had Family Home Evening with the Reeds. We shared the family mission plan with them and played volleyball for the activity.
Thursday we had our best planning session ever. Then we drove around trying people by none answered. In the evening we went on exchanges with the Harisonville Elders. Elder Prax and I stayed up in Raymore.
Friday we had the same luck. No one answered. We visited with Brother Wolf in the ward. He is old and has tons of stories to share with any one that will talk with him. We meet with Patrick and talked with him and it turns out that he is reading when he can but he is super busy. He was going to try to make it to church if he could. We had dinner with the Cahoons and after dinner they gave us a private firework show. He has a firework tent every year.
Saturday we gave out a couple Books of Mormons.
Sunday Elder Ronny and I gave talks in sacrament meeting. They were on President Ukdorf’s talk from Priesthood this last conference. The title was “Are you sleeping through the restoration?” I also talked about how they could help with missionary work. Brother Kirk came to church it was his first time in like 30 years. He even stayed for gospel principle class.
Thanks for all the letters and the support. I hope you have a great day.
Elder Benjamin Allen
