Week 50 of my mission .....Week 22 in Monroe

     To start off week 50 on the mission we went up to Riverview to play some games in the gym and to have some P-Day fun. That night we saw a neighbor, who approached us the day prior, and we went over to see him and had a good visit. He had met with missionaries in the past. Later that night we saw our investigator (F) and we were able to read with him, helping prepare him for his baptism at the start of next month. 

     The next day we did some contacting at a store, no luck. But later that afternoon we met with someone we are teaching and we read with him, continuing his progress. That night was the cookie exchange night. It's where we go out and give cookies to those who are not active. we had some great visits.

     Wednesday morning we provided service for a person who we met yesterday and she allowed us back because she said she could feel something. We will call her Jill. So we helped her pour concrete for some deck footings, it was great and the weather was also nice, it was like 65ºF. It was an awesome experience and we invited her to the ward thanksgiving dinner on Friday night. Later that night we saw our investigator (F) at a members home, it was a great lesson. We taught the importance of the Priesthood and the importance of family history. After we went to contact a referral we got. 

     Thursday was awesome! Elder Perkins of the seventy came to speak to the mission, it was a great experience and a lot of information was took in. Truly an awesome experience. That night we saw one of our investigators who is amazing (F)  and we also saw another on of our investigators (A). She is awesome but still struggles a bit with knowing Heavenly Father loves her, but she is super awesome.

     Friday was the ward thanksgiving dinner. It was awesome and our neighbor also came, it was awesome to have some fellowship for Jill, who sat at a table with some people who know the scriptures well, and they talked all night! We gave her a Book of Mormon at the end and she is super interested. It was a great night. 

    It started to sleet all day Saturday, it was trying so hard to snow and it finally did a bit. Tonight we went to the adult session of stake conference, it was great.

     On Sunday the bishop took us up to conference and the stake was reorganised. It was really cool to hear how that was done. Sunday night we had dinner at the Hales and later we saw our investigator (F) and it was great!! 

Lots of Love
Elder Rodgers
