Elder Dube Conference

September 14, 2015

Hey Y'all!

This week was awesome. Last Monday we had dinner with the Foglemans and I burned a shirt there for my 1 year! Woo! It was pretty good times. On Tuesday we did service with Bro. Willingham digging cactus for the first half of the day. I always get stabbed by a piece of cactus at some point haha. So we came back and had a power trade off with the zone leaders and I got to go to their area for a few hours and tract. Then we came back to my area and we had two appointments and found a new guy.

On Wednesday we saw Retha and went to Book of Mormon that night. The poor sisters teaching it... Everyone was going crazy that night. At one point when Amlici (from Alma 2) died a recent convert yelled out, "WOW. didn't see that one coming! That's crazy man!" It was a blast for me since I wasn't teaching :) Thursday we drove up to Lake City and had a conference with Elder Dube of the Seventy. He is HILARIOUS. He was cracking jokes all the time and was just a fun guy. I learned a lot from him and he is a very humble guy. 

On Friday, we went out to Sister Day's house, this super sweet old lady, and moved a bunch of boxes for her. Let me paint a picture of how much family history stuff she had. It took us a solid hour to move them all using 2 Dolly's and it blocked off most of her bedroom. I couldn't even believe it. 

Saturday was THE BEST DAY. We saw Retha earlier in the day and knocked some doors at this one place. We gave away 4 Book of Mormons in like half an hour. It felt AWESOME. And we got two return appointments! Yesterday our Ward had a primary program at church. We stopped on the side of the road and got some free peaches from this really nice guy. We ate dinner at the Christiansens, and I had steak for the first time in a year, and it was magnificent. We ate dinner at a different members house every night this week. I love it here....
