National Pizza Day ....Week 34 in Monroe

     Last Monday after emailing we went up to a members home to play games. He had the day off and we played Catan and monopoly deal. He even fed us lunch AND dinner, and I even won Catan! Later we went out to visit some less active priesthood holders and we got into one and he has to work this Sunday but we invited his wife and daughter to come so we will see Sunday if they come. It was a great preparation day, a great way to start the week. 

     In the morning we went to a food pantry and helped organize some product and help with an order and then a quick lunch at home and then we went back. This afternoon we took people around and helped them with there orders. It was a great service  day, we even got to take home some milk that they were giving away! We got three free gallons and one gallon of chocolate milk which if we were to go buy would cost us like $5.37 for the milk and the chocolate like $2.34, so we saved. Then we went to contact referrals and no one was home and one didn't even live there. We came back home for dinner and then went and did more of these less active priesthood visits with brother H. We talked to the guy but maybe he will come back. While I was with Brother h my companion went with another member (IH) and they had a great visit.

     For District Meeting the next day we practised cutting the 'fluff' out of our lessons and then would practice them. Today my companion was sick probably because of something he ate, so to say the least he and the toilet got on a personal level...  and then we drove to Westland for interviews with President Cleveland. They were running late but we still got in and had some great instruction by him and a good quick interview... I passed, all is well. After we saw Brother FE and read with him and then we went home for dinner to finish our evening.  

     Thursday we went to habitat for humanity and helped there for a while. I stepped on a nail but it just went in my shoe and like kissed my foot so I am okay. Then some finding then we went to a members home for dinner. The mom stayed home with a sick child and the father and his two children took us out to a pizza buffet on National Pizza Day! It was great, what better way to spend National Pizza Day then eating at a pizza buffet! I had like a apple pie dessert pizza... it was divine.

     Friday was great. We went with a member to pick up our investigator and then went to a members home to have a lesson. The lesson went well and she might have her date pushed back because of the difficult situation she is in. After we planned and saw brother FE and read with him to continue to strength him. Then we volunteered at the soup kitchen. Tonight we and had our weekly correlation at the ward mission leaders home.

     Saturday morning we went to the church and we split off to go with members to visit less active priesthood holders. It was good, not too successful though. Then we had lunch and saw a less active who is progressing so well, it's awesome. He is reading and even praying. He will be back to church here by the end of the month. Then we got a media referral a few days back and had a lesson with her, it was awesome. She could point out some errors from her church and saw points of doctrine in ours that made sense so is on date for March 25,2017 so we will continue to meet with her and help her.

     Sunday after church we went on visits with members to visit the less active priesthood holders again. Then we had dinner and had hot dogs yum! and then went to a parking lot to talk to people before we went to an appointment for some companion study practice. 

have a great week y'all 

Lots of Love
