This week has been a little slow, but it has still been a good week! On Monday we were able to have a lesson with a recent convert that went very well! Then on Tuesday we brought a member out with us to try to have a lesson with someone, but no one would open their doors, even though we could see them through their windows. Then we had a lesson with a less-active lady who said at the end that she feels she is almost ready to talk to the bishop which is a huge step from where she was! She has been hurt by people in the church and has held it against the church, but her heart is slowly softening! Then we took out a young woman in our ward who wants to serve a mission, and we tried to contact more people without success, so we ended up at the Peterson's who are very reliable! We had a great lesson with them! Then Wednesday we had District meeting and we were asked to do a training on how the Book of Mormon supports the Bible! We had a fun time preparing for that and had a good training in the end! We had a lot of participation and were able to learn more about how to help our investigators! Then we saw Meiwan and had a short lesson with her, and she told us again that she doesn't want to meet with any other missionaries, but wants to meet with us at a member's home in our area. We hope that we will be able to persuade her to open up to the new missionaries in her new home! Then we had dinner with a new couple in our ward and had a great time getting to know them better, then saw another member and were caught up on different things that we needed to know about recent converts and other members, then we saw a less-active man whose daughter actually went to young woman's that night! We were excited because she really wanted to go which hasn't been the case for a long time! Then Thursday I was in bed for 3 hours with a migraine, then got up to go to a lesson with a less-active and her new visiting teacher! Before we went to the lesson, we picked fresh sweet peas from her garden and put them in a vase to give to the lady we were going to see! Then we saw Don later that night then came home so I could rest. Then Friday we saw Nyla and had a good conversation with her! Then we had dinner and saw another less-active member who was very tired, so we made it short and sweet, then went home. Then Sunday we were able to go to the Gilbert Temple dedication broadcast at our building! It was very good and sweet President Monson was so funny as usual! And before going inside after putting on the mortar, he had 4 children come up to put mortar on the cornerstone! It was very cute! Then we came home and I slept again until dinner then a fireside that we had with Stephanie Meyers! We sang in a missionary choir so we had to be a little early, and I was able to see Sister Heap! So that was exciting! And the fireside was very good and Stephanie's testimony was wonderful and it was just a great experience! So this week has been good! I love being a missionary during this time! I hope you are all being wonderful examples in everything you do!
