Week 5

AREA: North Las Vegas (Deer Springs/Waterfall)
COMPANION: Elder Steward

Sunday- Today we went to the Deer Springs ward for the whole 3 hours
and then went to the Waterfall ward for the rest of the time.  We
switch off wards each week so we don't favor one ward more than the
other.  I was super tired for some reason it felt like a long day.

Monday- Today was P-day and we just went grocery shopping and
Ross(Marshall's).  Then we go to the church to hang out and write our
emails and play volleyball or basketball.

Tuesday- Today for morning workout ran a 6.27 min mile, in the morning
I am trying to push myself to go faster and faster.  The treadmill
maxes out at 10 mph so the mile I can get is 6.00 so I'm working
towards that.  I have ran a mile every single day since I've been out
in the field, I started at a 8.25 min mile so I've improved.  Today we
had district meeting which was good. It was about diligence and he
quoted my favorite scripture in the lesson (D&C 58:27).  Then we
taught a investigator named George Segala and his family's religion is
the Sydney R. branch off of the Mormon church(The Church of Jesus
Christ). He has a testimony that our church is true but his family
isn't on board to switch churches (his wife).  Now we are just trying
to encourage him to come to church once and see how he feels.  After
that we went to a less actives house and he has a 1975 Corvette.  We
left him with a spiritual thought and asked him if he could read a
chapter of the BOM so hopefully he does.

Wednesday- Today we taught Sara for the third time, she is 16 years
old.  We taught her the plan of salvation.  We asked her to be
baptized and she said yes.  She has been attending seminary because a
young women invited her to come when she was a church on Sunday.  She
is an awesome investigator, she is following up with the commitments
we give her.  We also got a referral from another set of missionaries,
her name is Jen and she has three kids and she said she wants her and
her kids baptized but we haven't been able to contact her yet.

Thursday- Today was weekly planning, we planned out our week for about
3 and a half hours.  We did a pretty good job on staying on task. We
plan for an hour then take a 10 minute break then and so on.  Also
President Walker asked us in the month of September to show our
gratitude towards people by giving them thank you cards.  So he has
asked us to give out 2 thank you cards out a day.

Friday-  Today I had a 6.17 min mile on the treadmill and I was
motivated because I was racing Elder Steward.  Not a whole lot
happened today. It was a lot of finding and there was nobody to find
because everyone was out of town for Labor Day weekend.  I attempted
to ride a unicycle at a members house, it was pretty fun but hard.
Other than that pretty slow day.

Saturday- Today was also a pretty slow day because of the same reason.
So we were knocking doors for a along time today.  We talked a
potential investigator, she didn't seem to interested but she was
happy to invite us in.  She asked if we wanted a beer and we said no
thanks with a grin haha.  We just showed her a video and left with a
prayer and set up a returning appointment.  Then for dinner we had BBQ
chicken sandwiches.  Then the member asked if we wanted to milk a goat
and we were excited to try so we did haha.  We have videos below.
They also had like 6 cars, they were big fans of old Volkswagens.
They had an old vw bug dune buggy and an old jeep.

This week has been pretty busy.  It was a good week.  We had about 5
lessons so it's been fun getting to teach people the gospel.

Scripture I found this week I like.  Moroni 7:13, 16-17

In life try to see how the Holy Spirit guides you.  Whenever you are
making bad decisions that's Satan tempting you.  Recognize when the
devil is tempting you and make a plan to push him away if he does.
Also thank the Lord for blessing us with the Holy Ghost.
