"A map of eternal happiness" ....Week 32 in Monroe

     Monday a member had the day off and invited us to come over and play board games, so one of the games we played was Catan and in the final round we were all tied with the same amount of points but the member (TR) won. That night we went to another members home for dinner (J) and we had like spaghetti and a salsa chicken on top, yummy then we went and contacted downtown.

     Tuesday it stopped raining and we volunteered at like a food pantry place, that was lots of fun. Then we drove to Farmington and that night we had dinner with a member (A) we had like a Qdoba (name of a Mexican restaurant) style chicken. It was good! Then it was cookie night and we did some contacting!

     Wednesday was meetings, 9-4:40 was Zone Conference and a Missionary Broadcast. It was great, all of it. There was so much new information, one being the missionary daily schedule has changed pictures will show whats it is now. This evening we had a new member lesson at a members home (P) with our recent convert (F). Then to finish off the night we went home for dinner.

     Thursday morning we went to volunteer at ReStore. It went good , we are able to help them and also get our name out there. After we saw our recent convert F and then drove to a dinner appointment. We had rice, chicken and broccoli casserole... yummy! Then we went back to brother F. We went with a member to an "I'm a  Mormon Devotional" and brother F spoke. It was awesome! Then for you who dont know what that is - each month at the end of the month in each stake converts get up and speak for like 3-5 min and bear testimony and us missionaries can bring people we are working with to listen to them, if we can get a ride there. They are amazing!

     Friday we went to teach (E), a member referral. We went with a member to pick her up and take her to another members home for the lesson (its confusing) and we taught the restoration. It was great. Then we went home to plan for the week and then drove to our ward mission leaders home for dinner and correlation and then off to Riverview that evening to begin exchanges!


     Saturday I went on exchanges with Elder Jolley. We started off by finding and then more finding and then we had a lesson with someone they are teaching. I don't know if she is all there, she seems really lost. Then we contacted and had some biscuits and gravy for dinner... yummy! However, it was store bought gravy and biscuits . 

 Sunday we went to church. E came, it was great. Again during Sunday school we taught her again and this time was the plan of salvation. This means so much to me because it maps out our eternal plan for happiness - its amazing. After church for dinner we went to a members home brother H and it was great! Then we attempted to contact downtown but no one was talking to us after like 5 attempts so we went to update some records instead. 

Have a great week!

Lots of Love
Elder Rodgers


Some schedule changes, more planning in the mornings.
