Week 25: Building Houses and Such

So we helped start build a house on Saturday. That was pretty fun! We volunteered for Habitat for the Community and the concrete ground was already done and we put up walls like a puzzle. The walls were built in a prison nearby and they were done pretty good! The person the house is being built for was working alongside us, too.

They had MLC (Mission Leader Council) that the District Leaders and Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders went to on Friday, so I went on exchanges with the other District leader's companion, Elder Hail. It was pretty great and we gave a lot of Book of Mormon copies out.

The funny thing was that we had exchanges planned for the next day on Saturday, so I went with Elder Ellis.

We were going to Potential's and Formers and a "Do Not Contact" former shouted down the street if we were Mormons, and now we are going to teach her. There was just miscommunication last time and she apologized. 
But, that was pretty cool. Instead of getting rid of our huge potential list, we gained a few more :) lol.

Exchanges changed pretty much back to what they were before, but the leader always stays in the area and the District Leader goes up to the Zone Leader's area. This is for due to model areas and pretty much what I thought exchanges should look like at the get go. It is, also, a rule for the District Leader to go on exchanges with EVERY member of the district (except for sisters) and not to have exchanges the first and last weeks of the transfer. So, they have to be done in 4 weeks. Right now, we are going on 6 exchanges in 2 weeks... :) fun! For 5 of those, I will be leaving the area. 

Anyway, fun times! I know that Jesus is the Christ and that the Book of Mormon and Bible testify of that. They are the Word of God. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

Each area is an area of several missions. I am in the big pink one in North America
Elder Soares takes care of the North America Central and Idaho area and my area is inside that area
This is what people do to their Sundays when they add junk to it. Haha a cool object lesson
