A Very Busy Week!

January 12, 2015

Hey y'all,
     This week has been insanely busy and I could probably write you a novel about all the things we've done this week but I'll try and summarize it as best I can. Last p-day was awesome. The Lake Butler Elders came over with Brandon (a guy in their ward who's super awesome) and we spent almost all day visiting various thrift stores and playing basketball at the church. It was amazing. We saw Brother Chism (a less-active) as we always do, that night. Tuesday we spent most of the day out in Lawtey and thought it would be a good idea to bike it, which was probably the worst idea anyone's ever had in history. There were no sidewalks anywhere and all the dirt roads were super muddy and washed and everything is super spread out. It was crazy. We almost got hit by like a billion cars because we had to straight up bike right along the freeway for a couple miles... Wednesday we had zone meeting in Lake City and I stayed afterwards for a trade off with Elder Erickson in Lake City. The day was pretty average as far as they go. We did some tracting and things like that.  Thursday we worked at the food pantry for the first time in about 3 weeks. I always talk with this super funny lady, Ledawn, who works there and its always fun doing that.  Friday was pretty normal, we had a lesson with these two young men, about 15 and that was super awkward at first because we forgot the church key (where the lesson was) so we sat on the curb and taught them for a little bit before a sister from the ward happened to come by and unlock the church. But hey, missionaries live for awkward situations and anyone who has served can testify to that. Saturday was probably the busiest day this week. We didn't even get to have studies that morning because we went out to Lawtey to help some members move out and did that until 11 when we had to leave. We spend Saturdays out in Keystone now since the sisters left and usually do service for some less-active members, the Masseys. We helped them shovel some dirt for a few hours and had to get going to have a lesson with an investigator of ours, Kyle. That lesson went super good and we should be solidifying a baptismal date with him this week. We went to this lady Lynda's house after that and were supposed to help her do some yard work but she said it was too cold, so we shared a little message with her and took off. Elder Warren needed a computer to do trade off reports, so we went over to the Beckhams and while he did that I chatted with Bro Beckham and helped him wash his car. Yesterday was pretty great too, we taught Matt and after church the two young men from Friday and then went to the Underhills (in our ward) for lunch. We went over to some less actives house that night and he gave me one of his ties. We went over to the Barbers after for Family Home Evening like we always do and called it a night! We have 4 baptismal dates on now and should have 2 or even 3 more this week. Wow. Hope y'all have had a great week also. Love y'all!
