The One Where We Hang Out With the President

This has been a pretty decent week. We're teaching a few more people so that's nice. We have been doing a lot of knocking on doors to try and build up our teaching pool because all of our other efforts aren't working.

Wednesday night we got a call from our mission president, President Alexander. He asked us what our plans for the next night were. We didn't have a whole lot planned but he said he wanted to come teaching with us.

We had dinner with a great family we are working with and he came afterwords to teach them with us. Then we went out with him and Brother C. We got to see and teach a couple of people. We met this one family that was
really nice. We got let into the house since they were a media referral from forever ago. The man who answered the door said we could come sit down while he went to get he lady we were trying to see. She was not interested but our mission president convinced her to listen to us. So we got to teach her. It was great. We also taught the kids of a less active family. It was a bit of an awkward situation but it turned out alright.

Friday night we were out with our High Priest Group Leader. We had an appointment set up but they weren't there when we tried to see them. Instead what happened was he took us to see his friend. He was like, hey I know someone who lives over here, let's go see him. We taught him the restoration and he accepted a return appointment with us. We
should be seeing him this Wednesday.

Sunday we gave talks in sacrament meeting. We were called at 9:45 the night before by our bishop to speak. I spoke on the Plan of Salvation. It went really well. I'll pridefully say that it was referenced twice throughout the day on Sunday and I was told by the high councillor that it was the best talk on that subject he has heard. ;) Clearly he has
never seen a general conference before but whatever. I basically just took the long lesson plan outline from preach my gospel and inserted a bunch of scriptures. I made a fun puzzle analogy too.

Today was really hectic and busy, that's why the email is so short. We had a zone activity at defy gravity which was a lot of fun.

Hope you have a great week!

Send me pictures, read your scriptures!
