Sept 29, 2014

Dear Family and Friends,

This week has been an interesting week.  We had a lot of things pop up this week. The weather has been warm all week.

Monday we went to Independence. Elder Goro need to get his drivers license renewed so he went home for the day. I spent the day with the Independence Elders. We went Disk golfing behind one of the schools. There were 5 of us Elders. While we were playing Elder Young lost one of his Frisbees. We looked everywhere for it and couldn't find it.  We just continued on with the game.  A couple of holes latter the Frisbee was just sitting under the basket. It was fun playing it.  After dinner we went to a less active Family, we sang hymns with them.

Tuesday we did some service for the library. We went to the Genealogical branch and help move books from one row to a different row. I think that the most I have ever used the Dewey decimal system. We also did some help in the mission office. We talked to a lot of members and people.  It was a great day.  Elder Goro came back really late.

Wednesday we had a soon to be missionary with us for the day. We did studies together. We saw Josh and read with him out of the book of Alma. We also saw some of the less active families we can't visit by ourselves. It was great to have him with us, lots of different incites to missionary work.

Thursday we had an unannounced missionary meeting. The meeting was for us to watch the movie Meet the Mormons. It was a great movie.  It was funny and had lots of great stories. I glad that we had the opportunity to watch it. Now we can answer questions that people have on the movie.  We had dinner with the Bueschers and after dinner they went to the Temple again to do baptisms. I am glad that they are excited to go to the Temple

Friday we had Interviews with president Vest and his wife.  It was great to be able to talk with President Vest. The District leaders gave some great training. We started at 8:30 and it lasted till some time after 2.  We had to bail at 2 to go help the Johnsons move their stuff into their new house.  They have a nice house that is officially in the area. We had dinner with the Balinskys and had steak. We always eat great when we go over there.

Saturday we had our weekly missionary meeting with the ward Mission leader. After that we did our studies.  Later in the afternoon we saw Josh.   We answered his questions about Repenting. I think he has now realized the importance of the Law of Chastity and being married.  We had dinner with the Bakers, we ate at the Brick House in Smithville.  We were able to follow up with some of the people we had left Books of Mormon with.

Sunday was Fast Sunday for us. We had lots of great testimonies shared.  In Gospel principals brother Litster talked about General Conference and the blessing we have from it.  We had dinner with the Phillips. We tried a potential Investigator but She wasn't home but her roommate talk with us. We left her with a Book of Mormon to read because she was going to wait for her roommate to finish reading the Book.

Thanks for the support. I hope you all have a great week.
Elder Allen
