This week has been pretty fun. Monday and Tuesday were spent trying to get in contact with people. One of the investigators was temporarily living in hotels in Ottawa, so we tried tracking him down. We asked hotel management for some personal information that we were pretty sure they weren't allowed to give us, but they gave it to us anyway. So that was sweet.

Wednesday we were helping a family clean out their garage and they had this monstrous desk that we couldn't move very well by ourselves. So we just got a sledge hammer and had a little bit of stress management practice on this desk, that was fun. Then we had dinner with a family  but the husband was sick. They usually come to the church and have dinner there, but since there wasn't another male we just set up a table in the parking lot and had dinner. It was a super windy day, but the food was really good so that was a plus. 

Thursday we had to drive to Olathe because we had to swap our car with another companionships car. As they were handing us the keys they told us everything that was wrong with the car which included two of the tires had small holes in them and we needed to fill up with air every couple of hours. So we drove to Olathe and they put new tires on and got it all fixed up.

Friday we had Zone Training and the Stake President came and trained for like 1 1/2 hours and expounded on many mysteries of the gospel and it was super cool. I loved it.

Saturday we had a baptism for Blake Taylor who is a 9-year old we have been working with. His grandpa is the 2nd counselor and was the one to baptize him. It was a very good service and everything actually went pretty smooth for a change.

We were asked to go visit a lady in the hospital. She was there, but we had to wait like 45 minutes to talk to her. We gave her a blessing which was cool.

We also found out that I am related to some of the members here. The Youngs and Benches. Sister Young and I share the same great-great grandpa - Lorenzo Jensen. Then Bro Young's Grandpa Denzel Jensen is my great grandpa Orland Jensen's brother. Small world.

Sunday I was able to participate in Blake's confirmation and an ordination to the priesthood for another recent convert. Then we were able to teach three RCLAs after church 

So that was pretty much it for this week. Thank you for your patience, you guys are awesome. Make it a good one.
