The Light Of Christ ...Week 41 in Monroe

     Shalom, Monday was awesome. We had some time so we travelled to Ann Arbor for some of the day. We stopped in at a mall where I bought the Detroit hat and then we walked around the university campus and then came home. We finished off the prep day by playing games. For dinner we had Mexican at a Mexican members home, it was delicious tacos ...real tacos! Like homemade tortilla shells. After that we saw Brother FE and studied the scriptures with him. 

     Tuesday the food pantry was a success. I got another free gallon of milk but all they had was 1/2% milk so I took it and tried it, not too bad. After we had interviews in Dearborn. It is a 50 min car ride by interstate so we get there and after 30 min president cancelled interviews due to lack of time and rescheduled them for the next day. It was nice because we were going to be at the mission home anyways for Elder Coles exit interview. So we came back and did some "my plan" for Elder Coles. Later we went to cookie night and found out the 5 we went to visit no longer live there. 

     Wednesday I got some subway and tried a new sub and then we drove to the Mission home for all of our interviews. After we travelled to District Meeting. There we discussed how to better establish daily contact with our investigators, it was good. After some dinner and study as a companionship we saw Brother FE and read some more with him. 

     Thursday we rendered some service at Habitat 4 Humanity. We helped some people move things around then we had lunch and companion study. That evening a member picked us up and we went to the I'M A MORMON DEVOTIONAL in Saline with Brother FE. It was great! 

     Friday was slow but the best part was we participated in lent at a catholic church by going to their fish fry with some members for an all you can eat fish buffet, so much fish! Then we had a lesson with a  (A)

     Saturday was General Conference and for the first session we went to a less active home (M). After we went to a Chinese buffet to celebrate and invited a member and their family came. It was a fun experience.  Then we drove to another home for the second session and then the priesthood session. From that session was my favourite talk. It was by Elder Bragg which is where my title comes in to play "The Light Of Christ" 

     Sunday we had our investigator over to a members home and then she watched it in Spanish with their son and we watched it in English. They fed us lunch and then we went to another members to watch General Conference last session and then have dinner after. 

It was a great weekend full of awesome things and much blessings!

Lots of Love
Elder Rodgers
