It was actually helping Curtis with the last bit of demolishing his old house so he can build a new one. It was quite fun and good to get a nice sweat in.
Our MTC class with the members went well this week, they all liked it and are excited for next week. This is really going to make a change in the growth here and how solid these members are. There are hopefully going to be more members going out teaching with us which means we will get more people to listen and progress in the gospel. All good news!
A cool thing that is going on now is how we are making a focus throughout the mission with focusing on the Book of Mormon. To go with it we are also starting a read through it on a fresh paper back copy and then we are choosing one topic to mark every reference towards in the book. Its helped me see so much more out of the studies I am having. I am searching ways that a person can know God exists, and I found a bunch and I just finished 1st Nephi (in like 3 days). I would invite everyone out there to try it too. Pick one thing you want to know more about it and make a read through the book of Mormon focused on it.
Other things that happened this week.... I am really started collecting a lot of foreign and old coins. That's been fun, I have one from 1940, but I don't know what country. I can't get too much though or I won't have the weight to carry them around. I find they have such and interesting history and view of a country's culture by what they put on their coins. You can tell so much about a people by it. I wonder what the Nephites put on their coins....
Anyways, that my week in review. I hope you all have a blessed and spiritual week, and that your all doing well.
