4 States in a Day!

Hey everyone!

This week was pretty good!

Thursday we began our adventures haha! We drove 1.5 hours to Texarkana to a doctors appointment for Elder Lovell and they just told him there was nothing they could do for him so. .. After that we drove home, then to Monroe, LA to pick up the other Zone Leaders, then all the way to Jackson, MS for our leadership conference.  It was a day full of driving.  When we got to the mission home we sat down and discussed a lot of policies and what we need to do about them. We did that for about 2 hours and then we ate some dinner.  After that we went to the AP's new apartment that has bunkbeds and futons. They live in a super nice apartment now.  Elder Hill went to high school with Justin Coburn!  He lives in Tetonia. 
Headed to Mission Leadership Conference!  Elder Hill(the driver), Elder Cobb, Elder Lovell and I

Covering a lot of ground!  We actually hit 4 states in one day!  missing photo…Mississippi!
Friday morning we woke up and went to the mission home to eat breakfast. Then we went to the church building to learn more about what we are going to do here and what we can do to help the work progress.  It was a long day of meetings but now I feel more in the loop of what is going on and know what we are trying to accomplish!  The drive was no fun haha. The training was good and it was good to see some familiar faces!

Saturday we made some progress from where we were. We were able to at least talk to a few of our potentials and set up return appointments.  I feel bad cause Elder Lovell is trying his hardest hobbling on his leg and we aren't seeing a lot come from the work that we can do.  That's alright though we will keep trying!

Sunday was very interesting.  We went to church and there were some very interesting testimonies haha.  There was a non member girl that got up and said that she was baptized by her Grandpa because he is a pastor.  Then there was a guy who got up there and sounded like a Baptist preacher at the pulpit and some of the stuff he was saying definitely didn't line up with church doctrine haha.  It was a very interesting day.  We went to see a less active and her 17 year old son had a pack of cigarettes.  Is that even legal??? Then we went and met with the Sisters to plan for Zone training meeting.  It was a week full of interesting.

I am doing good!  I am starting to get the hang of things. They kinda just move slowly but its ok! 
This week was good. We do hardly any proselyting. We only taught 1 lesson this week, which is pretty different from Canton. That's ok though, we had a lot going on, hopefully this week we can start to find some new people!  We plan a lot and this week we were in Jackson for 2 days for meetings. This next week we will be planning for more meetings and then having to teach the Zone.  Mainly we don't do a lot of proselyting because of his leg. We just try potentials and don't see any success from it.  Its been kind of a rough transfer.

We have a few exchanges planned and we have a Zone Training meeting to plan for this week!

I love you all!  Thanks for everything!

The church is true.
