Hunter Week 9: Its Snowing!


Good morning everyone! It’s been a great week here in West Valley! It was a little slow this week mainly because my companion, Elder Denkers, got down with the flu a little bit. However, we had a great week! Tuesday we had our Zone Conference. It was awesome to hear from all the speakers and to learn things to apply to our area. Of course, it was great to hear from our mission President!  Wednesday is when Elder Denkers got sick really bad. I had a little bit of it as well, but he was sick as a dog all day long. So, that was really slow, and we had to cancel our lessons. We have a lot of great concerned members that came by and gave us drinks and and chicken noodle soup!

Thursday he was still a little sick but we did go to our lessons. We taught Rebecca, one of our recent converts, one of the new member lessons. Friday we had District Meeting which went well! Our lessons canceled on us Friday sadly so we didn’t get too much done. Saturday we met with Rey one of our investigators which went pretty good. He is set on baptism for next Saturday, so we are excited for that! We will met with him next week to start planning it with the ward. Speaking of baptism, we went to one as well Saturday. It was someone in the Samoan area that me and Elder Miller found and started teaching. It was awesome to see her get baptized! She was an 11 year old that had less active parents coming back to church. So that was great to see that happen!

Sunday we had Church, of course! We had a stake correlation in the Hunter Stake which went well! We talked about how the members can be more on board with missionary work which went good! We are also setting up visits with different ward mission leaders to go out and find some new people to teach! So that went great! After the correlation we went out with Brother Roos, one of our WML’s. We went out contacting and we found Oscar who was a referral we had. We found him home and we set up a time for us to come back and start teaching him! So that was fantastic! But ya, our week went great and of course we got a great snow storm Saturday which was wonderful! Feel’s like winter here finally! Hope all y’all had a great week as well! Thanks again for the love and support!
