Dear Family and Friends,
This week was transfer week. It turns out that I am still in the same area. I am still with Elder Goro here in the Newmark ward.
Tuesday after emailing we went and saw Josh. We also worked some in Smithville trying to find less actives and find new people to teach. We also taught Logan about Joseph Smith before all the youth went to the Royal’s game. We had dinner with the Litsters. In the late evening we got the call about transfers and learned that we were both staying here.
Wednesday we had a slow day. We couldn't find anyone home and interested in the message that we have. We were driving and saw a big accident with multiple cars in the crash.
Thursday we had weekly planning. We also had dinner with the Bishop and his wife. The Sisters were also there so we were able to meet the new sister. After that we went with Brother Grady to see Josh. We talked about Baptism and that we thought he was ready. We also talked about not procrastinating. It was an awesome lesson.
Friday we also had a slow day we couldn’t find anyone that would talk to us. We had dinner with the Dedelows. We help them with some service afterwards. It was Sister Jarmen's birthday
Saturday we had our meeting with the Ward mission leader. We had better luck talking to people; we talked to some very nice people. We had dinner with the Homesteads and they had over a couple that weren't members and we had a great time with them. We have been inviting lots of People to an Ice Cream party the ward is having. I hope some people come.
Sunday was Fast Sunday we had two investigators make it to church, Josh and Brother Johnson. Sunday school topic was about the Importance of repentance. We had dinner with The Andersons. We talked about Sister Anderson’s trip to Salt Lake taking pictures of Church sites and historic places. They have a tradition where every missionary signs the glass door.
Thanks for all the letters and Emails. I am having a great time out here in Missouri. I hope you all have a great week. I love you all.
Elder Benjamin Allen
