So another week in Chillicothe. The more time I am spending here the more I am enjoying being here. At first I was apprehensive about this boon town in the middle of no where, but it’s growing on me. Still miss Smithville lots, in fact I saw some of my favorite members from Smithville happen chance in Cameron which was just a miracle that we were both there at the same time and same place. It was a joyful reunion.
Zone training was held at Adam Ondi Ahman. I know how cool is that! We even sang the song Adam Ondi Ahman. Then we took a little walk to preachers rock where we all had some quiet time to study, pray and ponder. Then we regrouped and had a testimony meeting at preachers rock. Some missionaries got up on preachers rock to bear their
After that, went on exchanges with the district leader. We taught one lesson and did service the rest of the time. Lots and lots of service. Then we ended our exchange at the Far West missionaries Bishop’s house and all us ate dinner there… after the bishop’s wife had us weed a row in her garden. Lol.
Sunday was wonderful. Bubba is a fellow we are teaching. He thinks its just awesome how he feels so good after talking with us and how when we share messages with him he feels the spirit so strong. All he wants is to feel that way all the time. We are just starting to teach him the lessons and he has a little bit of a learning disability but really good guy and will probably get baptized.
We had dinner at K** and S****’s house. They are investigators and have fed us more this week than the actual members. Even though they are poor they always send us home with sooo much food. She just starts filling grocery bags I feel so bad! They are not married yet but planning on it this spring. People have told them they were going to hell for not being married and living together and they didn’t really know any doctrine concerning that so she was pretty distraught. Now she has hope and is happy.
Really excited to be serving here in this tiny branch. The stake is really focusing on this branch because of how weak it is. So we are really giving it our all to get the work going here.
Love ya have a great week!
