Christmas Starts Dec 1st ...Week 21 in Monroe

     Monday was fun, we were at the church all day playing games! After preparation day we saw our investigator that night (F) and we had a great lesson. We were there to strengthen him and help him continue on his path to conversion.

     Tuesday we cleaned out the area book and updated it. That night all our appointments fell through, it was hard but we did some contacting instead and we had a great night. 

     The next day we travelled like 2 hours round trip to Dearborn for interviews which will now happen every transfer.  Interviews took 45 min then we were back on the road, had lunch then later that afternoon we had district meeting. That evening we had a really great lesson with one of our investigators (F) at a members home. We talked about some of the commandments, it was great he is doing so well. Later that night we went to the church to have a talk with bishop about some people. 

     Then next morning we went to a less active members to help him with something then we taught him of the restoration which can literary be found in no other religion. Its great!  Then we called a referral we received and we went over to teach and it went well. I dont know how much she got out of it but hope all goes well with her.  That night we saw a less active we have worked with (A) and taught her the wonderful message of the Plan Of Salvation! It went well, she just loves it because she know she can and will see her son again.

     Friday morning was remembrance day also know in my family as the start of Christmas! I have told my companion we can sing a Christmas hymn on that day since he has been wanting to sing one all November! I agreed on that day we could but in my eyes Christmas starts Dec 1st but we sang Joy to the World. That night we volunteered at the Local Catholic Soup kitchen. It is always a great opportunity and I would invite everyone to sometime this coming December to go and find your local soup kitchen and volunteer your evening to helping out. To finish off the night we had our correlation meeting.

     Saturday we had a lesson with someone we found the other day (M) it was a great lesson. Today we did lots of finding and talking to everyone and we also saw our investigator (F) and it was a great lesson on the 10 commandments.

     Sunday we had two investigators at church (F & M) It was a great service and a great Sabbath Day. That afternoon we had a lesson with a husband and his wife and it was a strong lesson and we are going to start to teach them! We also went to read with our investigator (F) that night.

Lots of Love
