Back in Raytown!

Hello everyone!

This week has been great! We have been super busy once again with transfer planning as well as MLC. We spent most of our time on that this week. 

With MLC we decided that we needed to change things up so they aren’t becoming so routine for everyone so we decided we would head up to Raytown for the day. There we taught about sacrifice and what a sacrifice it was to come on a mission and also the blessings that come from being on a mission. It was good to see all the familiar faces in Raytown. They were so excited to have all the missionaries there. On Friday we talked about journal keeping and taking notes which was a good call to repentance because I haven’t been the greatest at that lately. Elder Beckstrom and I taught about comp study. We had 2 Sisters go up and talk about something that was unique to them that they loved to do back home to illustrate the fact that we should care about what we learn. Then we had 2 Elders make a hockey play (thats what they played at home) and then practice it, that was to illustrate the fact that we need to make lesson plans and then practice it so that we can get things right. I would say that it went pretty well. I still don’t like being up in front of a crowd talking haha.

I am doing good! Yesterday we were at the mission home with some missionaries who were going home. We were having a final testimony meeting. It was awesome to hear President Olson teach us about how a mission is the mold that we cast the rest of our lives with. It truly is so impacting, not only on us but on those we come in contact with. 

We had to take missionaries to the airport this morning and their flight got delayed 2.5 hours!  We will be transfer planning this week.  Man, everything is changing back home haha, everyone is growing up…

Love you all!
