What a crazy week! On Monday we got a text from one of our investigators named Brenda and she told us that her friends Alisha really wanted to meet with us. So on Tuesday we were able to meet with Alisha and we had a great lesson with her. She kind of unloaded all of this stuff about how she felt about life and everything on us and pretty much told us her whole life story... it was kind of a crazy lesson. But then on Saturday we were able to teach both Alisha and Brenda and we had a great lesson. Alisha brought up a whole bunch of concerns she has and we were able to testify to her about the plan of salvation and really help her. It made me so happy. It is experiences like these that make me love my mission!
Also this week we were able to do a ton of service! We helped an old lady in our branch by cleaning out the ditch in front of her house... holy cow that was a much bigger job than we thought but we got it all done. She was so grateful and happy for the help. Then on Saturday we went out to a ranch and helped a less active member put up a fence... that was a tough job, we were in like calf deep water and there was soooo much mud! He tried to drive his four wheeler through all the mud and so we spent a long time just pushing the four wheeler out of the mud... we got really dirty haha. It was kind of like we took a swim in mud but it was fun!
Yesterday we had a great church meeting. We got a couple of less actives out to church and we almost got Brenda and Alisha there but they got sick. In church they talked a lot about being self reliant and especially being spiritually self reliant. We each need to have our own testimonies and be able to know things for ourselves. I never realized how important that was until my mission!
All in all it has been a great week! We also got transfer calls and both Elder Hanson and I will be staying in Dauphin for another 6 weeks!
I hope everyone is doing well at home!
Love Elder Farnsworth
