Week 61: Dominos

Monday, January 16, 2017

Wow it was a great week! We taught Dick with the Ryans in their home and they got along really well. He is reading the Book of Mormon. We are going to teach him next week Wednesday. Also, I went on exchanges with Elder Seve. He is from Samoa, but was raised in New Zealand. He is super funny! Haha we had lots of laughs!
We exchanged after Zone Conference on Tuesday night and exchanged back on Thursday morning just because it worked best that way. 

So there is a new and better schedule for us now. Basically it helps missionaries be happier and healthier. It is awesome! They are going to talk about it for the 2017 training broadcast for missionaries on January 25. It is funny because Elder Giolitto was an Assistant to the President last transfer and he and Elder Seve have already been following it for the whole transfer! What! They kept it a secret! (On exchanges they would change back so we wouldn't know!) Sneaky!

We had some good lessons with Karna and Ganga and Co. We are teaching them the commandments and Karna, Man, and Trija are on date to be baptized in April. The rest of the family will follow like dominos. They are awesome! This week Monika came to church instead of Roman and Jit. Everyone else came. It was awesome because we got it sorted who would go to class with whom and it went so smoothly! :)

Also, Monika, Roman, Krish, and Trija went to Feed My Starving Children Wednesday night with the youth of the ward and had a blast! They were gone from home for 5 hours!

Also, we went to an Eagle Project to stack sticks and branches for controlled fires. The fire was tall! There were YSAs I reconnected with. 

Today, Elder Giolitto is making lasagna for us. Yum!

Missionary work is super fun! Yes it is hard, but it is worth it. 

I know that this is the Lord's work I know that God loves me and you and that there is a way to know his plan for us and to accomplish His goal. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
