Not really, but I want to apologize for yesterday and let explain…
Monday was zone interviews and that commands 48% of the day and 216% of your energy. And when president calls the zone leaders saying that he wants to meet with us, you generally (never) turn him away. So we had the unfortunate pick and we had interviews on a Monday. Luck for us, it means that we can switch pday to Tuesday and still get the same things done that everyone else did (which includes posting here). Speaking of here, mission policy prevents me from going on to the site so I can respond to comment made on the site (still working on that). Anyway, I have the best mom on the face of the earth and she has kept me apprised of comments made on he blog. Anyway, I have the best mission president available to the church, it will sad to see him go next July.
Anyway the weekly report
Monday: pday occurred as normal
Tuesday: Went on exchange with Elder Bradley here in Belfast.
Wednesday: Went on Trek all day. Elder Shupe plays the fiddle and he was invited to play at trek for some of the events. When the Trekkers came in on the second day and fourth days. He played a variety of pioneer songs and hymns. He was awesome. I will include some pictures that I took as well.
Thursday: District meeting, and final entry of area book record for current investigators.
Friday: another full day at Trek, so much fun!
Saturday: Lots of finding (tracting, street contacting, LA Hunting)
Sunday: Church and lessons all day.
Monday: not pday, zone interviews.
Tuesday (today): Impromptu district Pday, because we have exchanges with Machias today.
So, that my week…
1. What has helped your testimony grow this week? Describe what you learned or experienced.
Zone interviews, easily one of the highlights this week! We had a lesson on increasing member present lessons and how to best get them and we talked about several strategies to keep the members involved.
2. What is one interesting thing about your area that makes you smile? Why?
Having fun with an elder’s iPad. One of the Elders in the district left his iPad behind on accident and we had some fun filling it up with pictures and random videos all of which were promptly deleted by the owner.
3. What was your favorite/least favorite missionary moment this week? Describe.
Going on trek again. I experienced trek from a pioneer standpoint, this week I got to see what it was like for the support crew who went on trek and made sure that we had food to eat. I want to a some point do it again as a captain or pa.
4. Is there anything we can add to our prayers to help you? Praying for investigators, for example?
At this point, most of our investigators have disappeared yet again, so prayers that we will find them again would be helpful, as well as prayers to find those who are prepared to receive the gospel.
