Tuesday the 17th, today we did a hand full of things. We met a less active Dan LaMountain. He was a pretty interesting guy. After that we did some door knocking. Then we went to the Green's (investigators) home and we taught them about the restoration of the Gospel. Then we went out to the Wurtz for dinner. It was good as usual, it was fried ravioli's. Really tasty. Then we called it a night.
Wednesday the 18th was a pretty good day. We got up and went to district meeting in Allegan. It was a good meeting. Then after that we had lunch at the Wendy's. Which was tasty as usual. Then we went to Decatur and met with Buddy and had a really good conversation with him. Then we saw sis. Gray she is doing pretty well. She gave me a tiny bible that fits on a key chain. It has the whole bible in it. That night the Payne's fed us dinner they were some zesty enchilada's. Then we helped them move a few things then we called it a night.
Thursday we spent a good portion of the day in Lawton, we did a bit of door knocking. Then we went to teach Billie Jean and Marcie. They are enjoying the restoration of the gospel. The Disbrow's fed us dinner. It was quite a enjoyable evening.
Friday....the 20th..... The call came, I am headed to Holland Michigan. NEW ADDRESS ^^12241 Millrun ct. Apt. #2B Holland, MI 49424^^. After we got that news we did some finding. That night we went to the Gary Osbon's for dinner. We had Thai pork chops with them. Then we went to the Orton's for dinner. And had lasagna. We then taught Nate. He is doing well he is having a hard time understanding why he needs the Gospel. It is not that his Christian faith is bad, it just does not have the full truth. But I am sure that it is a difficult concept.
FOOT PATROL Saturday the 21st. Today we did a lot of door knocking. We found a man named Pat he said that he would read the Book of Mormon and pray about it. Then we found a lady who is the head of the United Christian Services group, so we are going to start to do service with her. That night we had dinner with the Barry/Curtis family. We had some excellent breaded chicken and potatoes. Then bro. Seddon came and pick us up to go out to his place. We had some excellent clam chowder with gourmet homemade bread. Then after dinner he took us down and showed us his guns. He has a awesome COLT 1911, a S&W .357 revolver, a S&W .44 Magnum revolver (that thing was a beast). A really really awesome S&W M&P Shield 9mm, it was tiny, but it felt great it had a awesome draw down, it just felt good. It would be great for conceal carry, if I were to get one I would get the .40 version. Anyway they were all awesome. Then we called it a night.
Sunday the 22nd. Today a gave a testimony in sacrament meeting. Then the rest of church was pretty good after that, I was able to get pictures from people. Then we saw the dangers briefly.
