On Monday after we finished up some P-day activities, we had dinner with the Marshall family. We had some excellent enchilada's with them.
Then on Tuesday we had a pretty full day of door knocking. There are a lot of doors where no one answers them. But that is alright. The reason for that being is the fact that people here are collectively nicer here than they were in Ithaca/Alma. But you definitely have rude ones here too. For dinner we went to the Wurtz's. We had some delicious stuffed pepper stew.
On Wednesday we had district meeting. Then I went on trade offs to South Haven with Elder Sauer (his favorite fgun is Sig Sauer, that's how his name is pronounced). He is where I was 8 months ago. He is 3 weeks into his mission. We had a great trade off together we knocked on 75 doors and only 20 answered. Maybe 5 of them were kind. Then for dinner we went to the Crider's. We lucked out we got a delicious turf-n-surf. Delicious steak with shrimp drowned in butter.
On Thursday we traded back. Bro. Subacz the 1st counselour in the Paw Paw branch gave us a ride. We stoppedby his house on the way home. He lives in a awesome spot. Surrounded by corn fields and forest. He has two horses that are really really pretty. Then we went and got our car from the dealer, it needed a alignment. Then we went door knocking. We had dinner with the Osbon family.
Friday was a fund day. We again did quite a bit of door knocking. Then we had dinner with the Frugone and Kraenzlin families. It was fun. We were able to play a bit of soccer with their kids.
Saturday, we knocked and we knocked and we knocked. Then we found a guy who was really sincere in trying to bash us. but I diffused him with the aid of the Holy Ghost guiding me to the right questions to ask. He said he would read the Book of Mormon and pray about it. That is the most important thing that people can do is ask God about it. Because he is the one that knows all truth.
Sunday was good. I had a feeling that it would be a different day. Well as we were sitting there after the sacrament had been passed, bro. Seddon asked me "cold" to share some thoughts. There it was. So I went up there with a prayer in my heart and let the spirit do the rest. I talked a lot about taking courage, standing for what you believe in. All thanks to the spirit. We had dinner with the Szekely's and had a great time. Then we taught a lesson to a Recent Convert and her mom. It was awesome they had a cute pit bull named Lemon Pepper who was a year old.
All in all it was a good week. Take care and watch your six. Godspeed.
