What is this? Week 3 in the field? Not sure but I know it's day 62 and everything is blurred together, haha!
Let me go day by day, starting on of course, last monday!
Last monday was just another beautiful P-Day, man these Preparation Days are miracles! I am so thankful for them, they happen right before I am about to lose my mind! For P-Day we played Basketball and Volleyball with 2 other companionships and it FELT SO GOOD! Even if I did have volleyballs flying at my stitched together wrist. Annnnd, nothing else happened on Monday.
Tuesday we had interviews with the mission president and then the zone leaders did a training on how to more effectively use our planners and the Area Book to find former investigators. Then we had another solid lesson with Francisco. He is so humble and desperately wants to be able to consider himself a "good person".
Wednesday we had a District Meeting. It was all about adjusting lesson plans to fit the needs of your investigators. It was a good reminder that we teach people not lessons! Then we did service at the house we live at helping their son build his trailor for his recycling business. Just out there drilling together a trailor, who knew? That night we went to the Richard's family for dinner. They made us fried rice and we passed around the volleyball, man I miss it! We then just shared them some quality scriptures and then Brother Richards and his 8 year old son came out and just went around the trailor park with us getting to know people, no lessons, sad.
First day of August! Today we did service at Sister Lopez house. We pretty much just build her garden for her 2 hours a week, it's exhausting. After that we had Taco Bell, YES. Then legitimately nothing else happened. People cancelled appointments, no one answered doors, and we just had our weekly planning session. We did find one family though and they seem good, but time will tell.
Happy Anniversary to my sister! Today we did service for some investigators, Familia Nanez. My companion had to cut 300 pounds of meat into blocks that I then mixed in with garlic salt and this AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS secret chili sauce! Brother Nanez was catering a quincenera. Today we also had a Tri-Ward pool party and Familia Nanez and the family we found Thursday night came and the members of our Branch did AWESOME with fellowshipping, it was awesome to see.
Today we finished up our Familia Nanez service and just finished prepping for the Quincenera. They fed us lunch with the food we made, and let me say, I am a BOMB meat mixer! It took 4 hours (whoops!) and then so we started study at 1 PM and about an hour in, the other Elders called us because their bike tires popped and they were at the shop getting it fixed and they forgot their wallet so they had us go get it so we never really got our studies in today. It was just a bizarre day in general, BUT we went to Buffalo Wild wings for dinner, so all is well on planet Indiana, ha.
SUNDAY: Church! And for the first time in MONTHS, (from what I have heard) Investigators came to church! Familia Nanez came and it was so exciting! Today was fast sunday so after church we all went (the branch) to the Hammonds for "Break The Fast". It was pretty much just a huge feast and Familia Nanez also came to that! It was cool to have the opportunity to get to know my branch better, they are so awesome! All our night appointments fell through though, sad, but we did teach Francisco!
Overall, number wise, we didn't do much, but it was another awesome week in the field. 600 days to go, HAHA!
Love you all!
