A Year To Remember ...Week 26 in Monroe

     Monday was awesome! We went up to Riverview to play some games and hang out with the members of our district, we enjoyed the time up there. We had lunch at Panda Express, its this awesome Chinese quick stop,  I wish there was one where I lived back home but sadly there is not. That evening someone we had talked to a while back called us, we offered our service to help her shovel and so she called us and we went to help that evening. It was hard work and a sore back because of it, but worth it all. After we had a lesson with someone which was good. We stood outside in the cold but we had a great 10 minute lesson on the scriptures. 

    Tuesday afternoon we travelled to Farmington for my companion, he had a appointment up there. That evening a family was moving out of the ward and they had us over for dinner... shrimp Alfredo! It was something I have never had before, not too bad. That evening we had our Cookie night it was great. After we had a lesson with our recent convert (F) and that was awesome. We taught the Restoration and it was awesome because he remembered so much.

     The next day, Wednesday, we had our Zone Conference up in Westland and that was great, so much inspiration and things we need to apply into our missionary efforts. I also got a free coat from the mission as they had extras and were giving them away. That evening we had a lesson with a new investigator that the north Elders were teaching,

     Thursday was long. In the morning we contacted a referral and then went bell ringing. That afternoon and into the evening Elder Stonehocker had the flu so we stayed in because he did not feel well. Lots of sleep for him.

     Friday was a year in the mission and it has been "A Year To Remember" We went out to a Mexican restaurant for lunch which was awesome and then we exchanged and we taught a lesson to our recent convert (F) and then volunteered at the soup kitchen, it was a crazy night there haha one to remember. That evening we had correlation.

     Saturday was long but warm outside. Some contacting then some more contacting and a few little appointments.

     Sunday was great. There was church this week... it was great! We had a great lesson with someone who was our neighbours friend who used to be Mormon it was cool. We had dinner with a family in the ward. It is where we will be skyping from next week! 

So in general a great busy week!

Lots of Love
