Dear Family and Friends,
This week was a great week; tons of things just feel into place.
Monday we had dinner with the Pattons. They gave us a referral for one of their closest neighbor’s. We also had a great visit with Jackie and Jack. They have started to read from the Book of Mormon.
Tuesday we visited with Grace. She loves when we come in since she doesn't have many visitors. We went to Ottervillle and were able to find people home and help them come closer to Christ. We had dinner with the Andersons. They are a very nice family and so great to us. After dinner we were able to meet with Tom. We were able to set up an appointment with him. It was weird because most people don't like to set up appointment with us.
Wednesday we helped clean the building with the Marshals. We had dinner with the Wilsons. It is nice to be able to have dinner with the Branch president and be able to talk about the work here in the area.

Thursday we had interviews with the mission president. It was great to be able to meet with them and talk about the work that is going on here. While we were doing that we had District meeting. We also had lunch together.
Friday we did service with the Protors. We pulled weeds and clean out around the bushes. I also help them install new lights. We then went out to California. We were able to talk to a lot of people. We had dinner with the Kirks. Brother Kirks has been having health problems. It was a great visit and we talked about how service blesses everyone’s life.
Saturday we went to the Hagstons. We had a great discussion about the purpose of sacrament meeting. We also visited a couple of other less active members. We also stop by some more Menionte stores, came away with another bag of candy. It had 126 bars, most protein bars.
Sunday we had the opportunity to bless the sacrament again. We had a great lesson on covenants and how they help us grow and become better. We found this real nice guy named Tod and left him with a Book of Mormon.
I hope you all have a great week. Thanks for all you do.
