One of the Elders in the ward we are trying to help progress to the temple right now came with us to help build a widow a chicken coup. He really knew his stuff. I learned some good stuff about construction. We also did a service project for Jewel this week helping her clean out her yard.
I would say the most important thing we did this week was going on splits with Jose Cuba. He just graduated this year. Knowing his was coming out with us I packed the evening with appointments with our coolest investigators and also made sure a cool member fed us dinner. I even cleaned the car for him. We had a really good time with him. At the start of the night he really wasn't sure but by the end he was asking us how he puts in his papers. The next day he came out with us again and we had dinner set up with the bishop and they now are starting the process. It's kinda like pyramid scheme but with missionary work.
The alternator in our car broke yesterday and won't be fixed until tomorrow at the earliest. So we have and will be walking. We are trying to get members to take us. But it's really difficult to not
have a car here. Our area is probably the size of the Treasure Valley.
The best part of the week is how many people came to church. So many less actives and families that we are focusing on came to church. It was awesome. One family came that hasn't been to church for 4 years, they have a child that's 11 that needs to be baptized so hopefully we can keep helping them.
