Well, I don't have my journal on me, so today might not be a long letter. Sorry. But, I will try to remember everything, and every little “dumb detail” (:D) as I can. [note-I am always telling him that, as a mother, I want "more details"]
Oh, I got an email from Sister Partington, and she tells me that Danny is getting ready to go on a mission. Yay! :D So that's exciting. It'll be great!
On Monday, the 16th, it was another “meet people and get things moving” day. We had a FHE with a really cool family. They remind me a lot of the Fife family, and even kinda look like them. The FHE was really good. We watched a short video called "Tried in All Things", it's Pres. Hinckley talking about the three 18 year-old boys who carried all the stranded pioneers across the Sweetwater River.
The Spirit was really strong and I just fell in love with that video. It's really good. We tied all that to missionary work. It's pretty sweet.
Tuesday, the 17th. My 5 MONTH anniversary!!!
We taught Kristi, and she loved it. We taught her about the 10 Commandments.
Wednesday was Zone Conference and the main focus was the Book of Mormon. They want us to be Book of Mormon missionaries, and not just "Preach my Gospel" missionaries. It was way sweet, and President gave us a challenge to re-read the book of Mormon, cover to cover, in three months (five pages a day). So I have been doing that and I'm in Jacob right now. Jacob is amazing. Chapter 5 is so deep. Man, I love it! We also had a lesson with a less-active man, which was good.
Thursday..... was a pretty lousy day…the end.
Saturday we just went around and met more Ward Mission Leaders and Bishops. It was a l-o-o-o-n-g day. It was cold, and it snowed.....twice.
On Sunday we taught the Primary in the 19th Ward. The lesson was on service and was a lot of fun. For the last 5 minutes it was a “Question and Answer” time and the kids asked us some of the funniest things. Oh, my gosh! It was so fun. Little kids are so cute.
Monday. Yesterday. Had an Exchange with Elder Coon, and I got to Drive!!!
Today is a “half P-day”. P-day is over at 1pm because on Thanksgiving we have the whole day to rest and to hang-out with members; so that will be our “whole-day P-day”, so I'm excited for that. We also get to watch G-rated movies on that day, so I'm going to see "UP"...
...the new Disney-Pixar movie that came out on DVD a few weeks ago!
Anyway that's my week. I hope you enjoyed it.
