Dear Family and Friends,
Elder Tolman and I had a great week.
We started out the week with pday. We meet up with all the Elders and Sisters at the Stake Center. It is like 2 hours away. We were able to go since we were planning on staying the night with the Zone Leaders. It was cool to meet all the missionaries in the Stake. In the evening we went on exchanges with the Zone leaders in their ward. I went with Elder Verkler. We went out with a member named David. We tried to visit a couple of people. Those plans didn't work out so we helped a less active that just moved in. We help him assemble some chairs. It was a great evening.
Tuesday we woke up real early to be at Zone conference in Independence. Elder Renlund and his wife came for Salt Lake to meet with us. He had some great things to share with us. He shared with us on how you can have ether a positive or negative attitude and the effort you put into missionary work. He told us that if we had both positive that our mission would be the best ever. We also saw the new Easter video “Because He Lives.” It was awesome.
Wednesday we raked all the leaves that we had in front of our house. They hadn't been raked all year. We filled 12 big bags full. I hope our neighbors now approve of our yard. We went out tracting and talked to a few people. More people are out and about with this warmer weather. We had dinner with the Pattons. Brother Patton went out with us in the Evening. We visited a few less actives. We asked them if they knew that some thing big (death) was going to happen in less that a year what would you want to change or do better at? It even made me stop and think.
Thursday we went around meeting tons of potentials in the Area book. We saw a couple nice people. We visited James and we read 2 Nephi 31 with him. We also talked to a Presbyterian minister. At the end she pronounce blessing on both of us. It was real interesting!
Friday we meet with Purcy. He is a recent convert but not too active in coming to church. We read with him. We also went to Iola. We were able to talk to a lady that just lost her husband. It is great how the Lord puts us in places to help out. We were able to leave her with a Plan of Salvation pamphlet. We had dinner with the Adairs. They took us to a 50's hamburger shop. It was real old but good. We were able to meet with the Akins and the Fornels. They are both part member Families.
Saturday was the wedding of Beth and Jeff. They are the sister’s investigators. The wedding was done by the bishop at the Church building. It started late and no one came dressed. It was interesting but good. We were able to meet most of both of their families. We also had dinner with Bishop and his family. It was awesome to be able to get to know them.

Sunday we had church. There weren’t lots at church with it being Spring Break. We had the High council come and spoke to us. It was an awesome talk. We didn't have anyone come. :( After church we had dinner with Brother Greenwall. I was able to replace his power supply in his computer. We also visit a couple of people. This week was a good week. I'm excited for this week since we get to go to the Temple this Saturday.
I hope you all have a great spring break.
Elder Benjamin Allen
