This week was a good week. We had a lot of interesting things happen this week. We drove or found rides to the stake center a ton of times.
Tuesday, Elder Goro did an interview for an investigator that some sisters were teaching. She was real nice. We had dinner with the Homesteads.
Wednesday this week we went on Exchanges with the Zone leaders. I went up to St. Joe with Elder Hart. Elder Goro stayed in our area with Elder Sjoblom. The exchange was fun. I was able to have district meeting in St Joe. There are all new missionaries there except for Elder McCurdy. He has been in Maryville since December. The training was on what make a successful missionary. It was also fun to be working in part of my old area. Elder Hart and I taught Egwardo some of the commandments he is real close to baptism just needs to come to church a couple more times.
Thursday we also taught the Bueschers the 4th new member lessons. They are doing great. They both have callings and are progressing in the gospel. They even feed us.
Friday we went to a funeral for a member of the ward that just died. It was a good funeral and most of the extended family isn't members of the church. Sister Gunter, one of the Sister missionaries, and our ward mission leader spoke at the funeral. We then worked in Smithville. We had a couple of appointments and all of them fell through. In the evening we help the Dedelows paint more of the fence. The Sister missionaries were also there. The fence is slowly all getting white.
Saturday we help a family move from one house into another house in Smithville. It was a very hot day. We did some tracting and talked to lots of people and only handed out one Book of Mormon.
Sunday we had Church, two investigators made it to church. We learned about the apostasy in gospel principal class. We watched a move about how Wilford Woodruff learned about the gospel. We talked about the talk “Are you sleeping through the restoration?” in Elders quorum. We had dinner with the Philips. We then stop by the Bueschers and talk with them for an hour.
I am having a great time out here. Thanks for the letters. I hope you all have a great week.
Elder Benjamin Allen
