We did a lot of walking, and we got lots of exercise!
We had our Zone Conference on Thursday and we talked about finding and how we can approach people differently that just say, “Hi were missionaries…” We saw some pretty funny role plays…especially the one about moving to NY because they were pretending to be a cat breeder. NY is a pretty good place to breed cats!
It’s fun to try and talk to people using these the new approaches we came up with as a Zone. For the past couple days, I have been asking people what the purpose of life is. One time I asked a lady that was walking and she just laughed and walked away, but I asked another man the same question and he told me that his dad always told him, it is to paint smiles on peoples face, I thought that was a cool answer!
We met another family while we were OYMing on a trail in Painted Post. We asked if we could share more of our message and they immediately stopped and sat down on a bench to listen to us. We taught them the Restoration afterwards, the little boys got all excited and said, “That was a great story!” They said we could come back next week, and the cool thing is, they live 5 minutes away walking distance so we don’t even have to use any miles to get there! We are excited to see them this week!
On Wednesday morning, we helped to do “Meals on Wheels” If you’ve never heard of it, it’s this service activity to deliver meals to the elderly in the community, I think, But I didn’t really know what I was doing I just did it. It was great!
One of our investigators came to church for the first time since I’ve been here! She seemed to enjoy it and I hope she comes again next week! We also sang with the youth in Sacrament meeting Spontaneously, so that was fun too!
Sunday night was fun, we walked all around town knocking on doors and talking to people on the street…somehow I enjoy that now.
I’m still working on my proud watch tan line and trying to avoid the mosquito, and talking to everyone I see! I love you all and I hope you have a great week!!
