Out with the old and in with the new ...Week 13 in Monroe

     Monday was sad but great, it was both Elder Woods and Elder Musich last time in Monroe on a preparation day. We played some Settlers and some Bang and had just a great day! Later that night we went to say goodbye to some people. 

     The next morning it was exiting but nerve racking! We went up to transfers with our Ward Mission Leader and then while we were at transfers Elder Musich saw he was going to Grand Blanc and that was crazy! Of course to add to the suspense my new companion was late but that's alright. His name is Elder Mortensen and he is from Snowflake Arizona and he has been out for 3 months. So it was out with the old and in with the new! Later that day we didn't have much planned so we went finding and had a lesson (with An) and then had the Book of Mormon class and then a lesson with another investigator (F). So that was pretty much our first day together!

     Wednesday we had our district meeting with our new district leader Elder Gittens.  Also that day our lesson with an investigator (C) fell through so we went out talking to people. Later that night we had a meeting with bishop and the ward mission leader. 

     Thursday we went Flee Market Contacting and it was fun. We met some sweet people and then that afternoon we were out talking with people, that night we had a lesson with our investigator (F) at a members home and that was sweet. He is supper cool! Our lesson that night (with R) fell through, our member was a no show so we went out talking with people again.

     Friday was Super Planning then lunch and then out talking to people till our lesson at 4! After our lesson we volunteered at the soup kitchen and they let us try some of the food. It was probably the best ribs I have had in a while! While at the soup kitchen we meet someone we used to meet with (J), it was interesting meeting him. But by this time in the week since we have been talking with everyone we have meet some really wired people!!!!! Tonight we had our lesson that didn't go through the night prior (with R). 

     Saturday was VERY RAINY but that morning we had a return appointment from a lady we found early that week (Al) and we taught the Book of Mormon and the restoration and we were able to get a return appointment again, it was way sweet. So a cool little miracle how we found her... I wanted to go track in her neighbourhood but didn't , we went tracking somewhere else and we found her at another place! So that was really cool. Tonight we helped an investigator (J) move then had a great lesson with our investigator (F). This time we had him team teach with one of us. So he paired up with me and we taught Elder Mortensen and visa versa it was sweet.

     Sunday was church and correlation and in the gaps ....finding!  We talked to a lot of people this week!  Also had some strange conversations! some JW's  argued with us, in a polite manor, for and hour and a half. 

Lots of Love
