Hey everyone, this week has been crazy and busy. I will try to give details but my brain is pretty fried now.

Tue - We actually did some proselytizing and had a great lesson with Brother Bruce.

Wed - We had meetings literally all day :)

Thursday - Elder Merrill got a call to be an assistant to the President. So he was emergency transferred to be in a trio with the assistants.

Fri - We tried a few people and packed and we were asked to help set up for a big service project for tomorrow. We were supposed to be there for maybe 20 minutes but it turned into more like  3 1/2 hours. 

Saturday - We went and helped at the actual service project. It was held at the Community of Christ (RLDS) auditorium. It is basically the equivalent of the conference center for us. It was a huge project to help the needy and homeless. So there were companies offering free services like hair cuts, job resumes, and medical check ups. Our job was to guide people around. The ward made care packages with towels, toothpaste and copies of the Book of Mormon.  I don't have the pictures of the event right now, but hopefully I will get them soon.  Afterwards we exchanged, E. Merrill went with the APs and I went with the Riverview Elders (Horne and Martinson.) So now we are double covering. The Riverview area has downtown KC MO. Its kinda sketchy, but its been a lot of fun.

Sunday we went to Riverview for church, it is a small branch with about 40 people, its pretty fun.

Anyway, sorry this week has been kinda short. They have kinda thrown me into the fire and I'm trying to get everything done that I need to. Thank you for all the emails this week, it was great to hear from you all!
