Same Area 3rd New Companion ...Week 19 in Monroe

     To Finish off the transfer last week with Elder Mortensen we played Catan and some other board games. Monday night we had an appointment with a Spanish family in the ward and had some great Burritos, filled with beans chicken and rice.... YUM! Then we said goodbyes to another family.

     Tuesday morning we woke up to frost on the car windows and our ride to take us to transfers arrived bright and early at 7:15 AM. I found out who my new companion is.... Elder Stonehocker. He has been out just over a year. After all of that the morning transfer stuff we had a lesson with someone we meet the other day, (S) and it was a great but very distracting lesson. Later we shopped and had lunch then did some of the fun stuff like talking with everyone. Tuesday night is what we call cookie night. It's where members show up to the church and the missionaries go out with them to deliver cookies and introduce ourselves. That night, for the first time, we were able to have each missionary go with a ward member. 

     Rain the next day and a cold one at that. We had our District meeting then some more rain while outside talking to people. That night we had a great lesson with our investigator (F). Then a failed attempt to see the bishop that night, something came in the way for him. I was also able to finish the Book of Mormon again that morning.

     Thursday evening we had a good lesson with our investigator (F) also that evening we were in a market in our area and we talked to this one nice person. She has two college age sons so she thought we were "cute" and so we continued in the market and she found us and is like... I bought you chicken and what else do you like, so she bought us ground beef and some other little thing. It was way cool.

     Friday you all know what that means... Super Planning. It was great. After we went out to make some calls and talk with everyone. That evening we went to the church with our investigator to a homecoming party for Elder Hales who just came home this past week. It was weird to see some one come home.

     Saturday we had a great lesson with our investigator (A) and with a member. It was cool and she almost came to church on Sunday

     Sunday we went to church and it was great Elder Hales gave a great homecoming talk and after church we had a meeting and then for dinner. We went to the Hales for dinner and they are great. That night we had a great lesson with our investigator (F) and it was also great to have a member there. So like my title says ....same area and third companion here. Got to love that !

Lots Of Love
