Today I Saw the "Promise Land" ...Week 2 in Lapeer

     Monday was a hoot! We played games all afternoon and then we went out to a home where we had set up a lesson just two days prior. We had a great lesson with her (M), we taught the restoration and it was great. She is being prepared to receive the fullness of this gospel. That evening we did finding and talked to some people. 

     Tuesday was the highlight of the week, it was Zone conference. We played Preach My Gospel jeopardy. It was lots of fun, except our district got slammed! We finished with -5000 points, we bet and lost, but that just means we need to study better. We also learned how to make a more effective lesson plans for our investigators. President purchased a Shaved Ice machine for the mission and events in the mission and he let us test it! It was great tasting shaved ice. That evening we had our dinner and studies and some finding. 

     Finding in the morning and in the afternoon we went to read the Book of Mormon with someone, then companion study and ward correlation at our ward mission leaders home. We had pizza there for dinner. That evening we had a lesson with our investigator (J) and taught the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

     Thursday in the morning we served at the habitat for humanity. It was pouring rain all morning and there was some great thunder! After that we contacted downtown and I got soaked. We had companion study and dinner and our lesson fell through with (M) our investigator but she said she will come to church this week. 

     Friday we weekly planned and then did some finding before our companion study. We found a soup kitchen in our area and went there and it was great. They love us and we are going to make this a weekly thing when we can. Then we had dinner and some finding before we travelled to Port Huron for exchanges. 

     So Saturday I went to be with Elder Smith for the day, he came out in March of 2016 when I got here from PEI. We did some contacting and then we had lunch and studies and then we went to pick up a member to take him to a lesson that we had. The lesson went great we taught her the plan of salvation and she loved it and agreed to be baptized. Then we contacted, had dinner, and then more contacting! Today I Saw the "Promise Land"... "Canada" It was only a bridge away, and it was just how I remembered it... haha! We drove back to Lapeer after that and it was a long drive. 

     On the Sabbath we went to meeting prior to church and then had church where (M) showed up. It was great. After church we went to read the Book of Mormon with someone and then planned and talked to some cool people. We had dinner and companion study and then had a lesson with (J) and it went well... and then some more knocking on doors.

love y'all... Have a great week!

Lots og Love
