Service Brings Blessings ...Week 38 in Monroe

     Monday was great. We went to a Chinese buffet and then to a members home for the latter part of our preparation day to play games, but an awesome part of the day was, we were driving and we got a call so we pulled over to answer and it was a less active who wanted a Book of Mormon and her kids to be baptized and her family to start coming back to church. We met and taught her that evening and it went well. We had another lesson fall through that evening and then went to go see brother FE. Great day!

     Tuesday was awesome. We volunteered at the food pantry again and today they received an excess of frozen pizzas so we were able to take home 11 frozen pizzas, it was amazing! They also gave us some chocolate and strawberry milk, the Lord will bless as we serve! That afternoon we saw an investigator (M) and then we went to the library for Elder Coles so he could do some "my plan" That is what they have the missionaries do when they have 6 weeks lefts to help prepare them for going home. Then some cookie splits with the ward and pizza for dinner. 

     Zone Conference 8-5 today was great. We talked a lot about how our finding can improve and what we can do to teach just the doctrine in Preach my gospel. That evening we met with bishop to discuss his view for this transfer for the work needed in the ward.

     Thursday was cold. We volunteered at Habitat 4 Humanity and got to smash some cabinets with a hammer and then hang some lights in the ceiling, and we assembled some cabinet doors. After that we did some finding and then had our companion study and dinner. We went to a members home to teach a short message of the restoration. As a mission we are teaching it to all the active members in the wards. That concluded our evening.

     Friday was cold and windy. We went to contact two referrals and they were both non existent. Then we did some contacting and then our lesson fell trough with a former investigator. We saw a less active member and then drove to a members home to teach the restoration to the family. After that we had dinner and companion study.

     Saturday was long... Elder Schone was sick so we were in the apartment all day. I cleaned a little and for dinner made a general tso chicken and rice with green pepper and onion creation! It was amazing! We played a few games tonight. 

     Sunday Elder Schone was still sick so we stayed in all day. We were signed up for a member dinner so we texted her and she ended up bringing us dinner and in the goodness of her heart she even brought it up to the door. She is amazing! That night I had a bad headache and it lasted from like 3-10:30 and started back up this morning. I have taken lots of medicine and now its gone!

lots of love 
Elder Rodgers
