Dear Family and Friends,
This week was a good week. I am doing great. The weather is nice. It hasn't been to hot this summer. There is still some humidity but not as bad as last year. It has rained some.
We had zone conference on Wednesday. The theme was being receptive to the Spirit. Sister Vest also told us that we all need to eat more healthy. She showed us foods that we should eat.
My companion had an interview for a girl being baptized so we went to the Stake Center. She was a nice lady that has some great member support so she was really prepared to be baptized.
We meet with Josh this week and read some scriptures with him. We read Helaman Ch. 5 and some in Alma. He is beginning to start to understand the scriptures more. He came to church also.
We help our ward mission leader pick grapes after our meeting with him. It was fun to pick grapes and help his family out. There were tons of grapes on the vines.
Church was good, we sang in the choir this week. We heard from a senior sister that just came home from serving a mission in Argentina. She went to help with the church career centers there. She had lots of stories about knowing what to say when she was asked a question. She did a lot to help those people out.
We also then had a Stake Priesthood meeting. It was all about making our Homes more Christ like and making them more celestial places and what we could do to achieve it.
Thanks you for all the letters. I hope you all have a great week. I hope the weather is nice for you all.
Elder Benjamin Allen
