You cant always win but you can try ....Week 16 in Monroe

     To start off the week we travelled to another area to have our Preparation day so we could be with other Elders. We played some games and had a great time. That night we had a great lesson with (F) and we were able to read with him and bring him one step closer. 

     The next day we had a great lesson with our investigator (A) and we taught the importance of prayer and she had some great insights. Later that day we had an appointment with another investigator (T) to kind of a see what he expects of our visits. We received a text later on in the week saying church is not for him, so we are not really teaching him anymore, Later that night we went on splits with members of the ward to visit less actives. 

     District meeting the next day was great. We were instructed on how to give short powerful statements. It was a great instruction given by the Zone Leaders. Later that day we exchanges, I went with Elder Gittens and we did some finding, some teaching, and had our investigator over to a members home for dinner. It was a great lesson. Later that night we went over some stake business. 

     We finished up the exchange on Thursday morning. We went to the flee market and I bought two more license plates... Ohio and a California one I love it. Thursday was great except for the part where all our appointments fell through. It was a bummer but hey, can't always win, but you can try.

     Friday we planned for the week and did finding. That night we volunteered at the soup kitchen, it was great. I always love to do that. Tonight downtown was Zombie Walk Night, it's where people from the town dress up and walked around as Zombies and there is a bunch of music and stands up all round town, it was cool. 

     The next day we were using the short powerful statements and we got a return appointment with someone. Later that night we had a lesson with our investigator (F) and we taught the Law of Tithing to clear up some confusion, it was great! 

     During Church the next day it was fast and testimony meeting and it was great. I got some questions answered and it was a great service. That night we went to a neighbouring town and talked with nobody because no one was out or would talk to us, but it was still good. 

Happy Thanksgiving, 
Lots Of Love
