September 28, 2015 - The One with the Most Normal Week EVER!

This was a bit of a crazy week here in Albemarle but it all turned.

First of all, congratulations to my cousin on getting married! Best wishes!

Unfortunately I don't have a lot of time to write this week, we have a zone activity in Charlotte all afternoon so we'll spend a lot of time there.

The week started off pretty bland. We didn't teach anyone on Monday night because no one was home. We were supposed to have a lesson at our Bishops house with an investigator but she ended up getting sick so
wasn't able to make it.

Tuesday morning we met with our ward mission leader to discuss the new and returning members of the ward and how we can help speed that process along. After lunch that day we headed out and picked back up a
couple of former investigators.
That night we had a great dinner appointment with some tasty food. We had a soup that a Lao lady made. It was delicious.

One of the most fun moments of the week was when we got to meet amissionary who just returned back from his mission in Chile. We made a poster and met him and his family as they came back from picking him up at the airport. We had dinner with his family that night and it was just a great experience!

The other Elders had a baptism on Saturday. It was a really nice time and a lot of people were there. Unfortunately we weren't able to bring anyone. I got to play the piano for the baptism. Afterwards one of the members of the ward wanted me to play a song on the piano so she sat down next to me and we did a duet of Be Still My Soul. 

This Sunday our mission president and his wife came to our sacrament meeting and taught our ward in the third hour block of church. It was really great! All of us missionaries here sat down with him afterwords and had a great conversation. He is really impressed with our ward as a whole and encouraged us to keep it up!

Overall this was a pretty typical week of missionary work. We taught people, had appointments cancel, had good days and bad days, and everything worked out in the end. Most importantly, we enjoyed ourselves and had a good time while doing it all.

Send me pictures, read your scriptures.
Love you!
