Week 51: Regional Broadcast Happened.

A picture of us in the car with a baby seat we were helping give back to a member. It was taken a few weeks ago.

Hi everyone!

It was an awesome week this week! 

Last Monday, we had to be in at 5 because of trick or treators. Haha and at 4:30, a bunch of kids were already on the streets. Crazy. I can understand why we had to be in at 5 haha. 

We were going to text a less active member that night to see when we can come over to teach him, but we forgot. In either case, he called us he next day and said he just got off work and wanted us to come over. So, we did. :) That hardly ever happens! So, it was nice.

We planted trees this Saturday! It was awesome! Our ward mission leader wants to do more service with his wife, so he went with us and the other elders. It was fun because it reminded me of the work I did with Irrigation. We dug holes, tore off burlap coverings, and put 3 posts with wire around the trees.

The Mongers are awesome! We taught them thrice this week. Krish came to church and watched the regional broadcast with us. He liked it too! 

I loved it! I really liked what Elder Devin Durant taught about how to be a teacher like Jesus and how we are all teachers. He is very well spoken, too, and hilarious! 

Back to the Mongers, we had Brother Smith, his daughter and another young woman come to the lesson Sunday night and Brother Smith invited Monika to church and she said ok. She has always been hesitant before, but now she says ok. :) Awesome! So, we hope she still decides to come on Sunday. She will have a great time. The young women in the ward will make her feel very welcome.

The Mongers, also, prepared a little food for us again. This is the third time. Haha, it was very spicy. They are such a nice family. Krish is praying everyday and it seems like they have family prayers. They have progressed so much! Ganga's English is way better now, too. 

On another note, Vince dropped us because life is hectic right now for him. But, in the future he will be so ready, along with his mom. :)

I'm excited for this next week! We are trying to get members first and then setting up lessons for investigators. Working out well so far.

Transfers is next week. We will see what happens. :)

I know the Atonement is real. I know that Jesus lives and that he loves me and you. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
