26 Dec 2016

Pretty good week, a little slow because of Christmas But it was a lot of fun. I don’t really know what to say cause I told everything to my family last night.

Monday pretty typical p-day stuff, after p-day we went to see a referral and they were moving in furniture so we gave them a hand, turns out they are not active members but would love to have us over for dinner and such. Hopefully we can figure out how to help him. The husband was baptized 5 years ago so something must have drawn him to the church and hopefully we can rekindle that and build off of it.
 Tuesday- we had district meeting about using dinners as a time to build member relations and find people to teach. So we did this practice and sister fielding (who was doing the training) asked us to do a bad practice. So I was sharing a bad dinner message. President gives us a scripture to recite and learn every few months. So I decided to use that (it’s a good scripture) the scripture is D&C 131:6 "a man cannot be saved in ignorance". They continued to ask if they knew any one that was ignorant that we could teach. They said no one was ignorant and that everyone they knew was Mormon. So I asked why it wasn’t just taken up like the city of Enoch. But that was the bad example. Later we had a much more spiritual good example. Later that day we met a lady that recently moved in and she said she was Greek orthodox. Im not sure she even knows what that means. She was talking about Christ as their belief at some points at other points she was talking about Zeus. We ended the night at the Schwarting's house. They are a part member family everyone is active daughter is on a mission, but he just has something holding him back from really investigating the church. But he's a really friendly guy and we shared the Christmas message with him.
I'm getting a little bored of typing so im going to summarize the rest. WE went down to Cokeville and I was a bit surprised at how many people remembered me considering I was only there for a few days of six weeks. There was a white tail running around town that was weird I’ve really only seen mule deer out here. Christmas Eve and Christmas were fun we had a White elephant exchange with the district, got fed very well, and it’s a nice little break for a day. But all and all this week was really good.

Love you all and hope you had a great Christmas!
