Week 69, January 11, 2016, 12 Hours of Long-Distance Driving!


This week was really good.  we had an awesome time with our zone last Monday, an hour away in Winnemucca.  we went back up on Tuesday for our weekly meeting. when we got home, the Sisters came in from Reno for Exchanges, Sister Anderson and I had a really good time.  we taught this guy the missionaries hadn't met with in a really long time.  He says he is not too interested, but he is definitely being prepared by the Lord.  Wednesday I drove with Sister Anderson BACK to Reno (exchanges are only 24 hours long)  and I got to see the Reno I know and LOVE!!!  then Sister Short and I drove back to Lovelock.  There was a super nice "Jack-Mormon" at the gas station in Fernley.  I hope talking with us will help him on his way in life.  then we had really busy planning day Thursday.  Friday was also really good, we were able to teach a great lesson as a dinner thought to some semi-active members, and I got a lot more out of Alma 8 than what I intended to share as the message.  Saturday we went on a Road Trip to Elko.  Elder Robbins came and spoke to us.  we make an east side Choir, and I got to be a part of that.  it was super fun.  then Elder Robbins talked to us about his devotional talk "Tasting the Light"  it was REALLY good.  May 2015 young adult devotional.  He also said talking about iPads: "I have NO idea when that will happen"  so that was reassuring.  another focus of his talk was about charity and really loving those around us.  ("love is a verb.  an expression of our behavior to others based on commitment" something like that.) Then we drove to Battle Mountain, and had dinner as a zone.  after that, we drove back to Lovelock, and it was only snowy starting when we hit Winnemucca.  the Assistants to the President were behind us so that was cool.  On Sunday, we were able to get lunch with some members super late notice, and then another member called us when we were done and needed a Spanish Book of Mormon, so we got it to him, and he had us visit with a Peruvian guy named Elmer (yes, his name was Elmer) and we taught him about the Book of Mormon.  it was a really good week! :)

I hope you week goes well!  REMEMBER!  your father in heaven LOVES YOU and wants you to succeed.
