Dear Family and Friends,
This week was a great week. The weather has been hot and cold.
Tuesday after the Temple and Emailing we had dinner with Brother Homestead. He was by himself and made homemade tacos with chipotle sauce. They were awesome.
Wednesday we had district meeting. The topic was working with the ward council better. After District meeting we all went the Family History center. We spent some time on the Family history site. After that we went on exchanges. Elder Webb and I came to my area for the day. We had a great day together. We talked to lots of people and handed out a couple of Books of Mormon. We tried to see Josh but he was out hunting.
Thursday we exchanged back after studies. We also did weekly planning. We were able to see Josh and we read some out of the Book of Mormon with him. We had dinner with Brother Freison and had some great ribs. We went out on team ups with the Mayor of Smithville. He is a great member. We saw Josh and talked with him about his goals in life. We also visited with some people that didn't let us in but talked with us when we came with him.
Friday we did some so service and helped a family move their stuff into a storage unit because their new house isn't built. We also talked with a couple that we hadn't been able to talk with. It turns out that they are house sitting for her parents. We visited some other people.
Saturday was good. We couldn't do much in Smithville because they were having their beer fest. We visited with Josh and Michelle before she went out of town for a week. We had dinner with the Bueschers. Brother Buescher was very busy with a music fest in Riverside this weekend. We visited with the Talents. She had surgery on her foot this week because she fell into a badger hole on her trip.
Sunday we had a young man give his farewell talk. The Choir sang an intermediate song called “A Marvelous Work”. We had tons of people attending our ward. We had dinner with the Smiths. The Tennys were there plus another family that was from Taylor, Az also. They were traveling and just happen to come to our ward and see the Tennys, We had a great evening talking to some people that we left Books of Mormon with.
Thanks for all the letters and Emails. I hope you all have a great week.
Elder Benjamin Allen
