Alright, so to get the week started we went to Hobby Lobby on Monday to try and find a little picture book thing. We walked in and I immediately realized that the only people that go to Hobby Lobby (at least in Missouri ) are young Moms who are trying to be all crafty. So we stuck out a little bit, we got a lot of stares. We ended up just going to Walmart where we weren't the weirdest people in the room. If you remember the pictures "the people of Walmart" I'm pretty sure that the majority of those pictures where taken in Missouri or Kansas.
We had a couple of really awesome lessons with people this week, it has been amazing to share the sweet spiritual experiences that come from learning and pondering the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We helped Carlos, who is a super cool guy, move a lot of dirt and paint part of his house so that was fun. We also helped a few people move out of the ward... sad :(
I went on exchanges this week with Elder Zuccato. It was super fun. We did a lot of finding and street contacting which always comes with meeting interesting people and just funny random experiences.
The past couple of weeks our District and Zone have really been struggling in finding new people to teach, so we set a Zone goal to find 7 new people and a District goal of 4. Well, the district was able to find 8 and the Zone found 12 new people this week. It was an amazing miracle and a great improvement from our previous weeks.
The Lord is with us and is guiding us where we should go and what we should do. It is incredible to be a part of this glorious gospel. I know that Jesus lives and that through him we may all live again. Thank you all so much for the love and support you have given me.
