Busy week for the Elders

Man we had a busy week here in Dapto and so here is the rundown for yous!
Tuesday- We had a good p day! We went and played some basketball like usual and it was fun! We got to talk to the kids we play against more about our church and where our beliefs come from so that was really good actually! Then after that we had no appointments so we just went and did some Less active visits and we met one guy who is an atheist now, but was really nice to us, and then a family who has no interest in religion anymore haha so it was an alright night!
Wednesday- We had MCM in the morning with the ward mission leader. Then we went and did some tracting around the area and just met a lot of rude people haha so that was awesome! Then we went to FHE at sister Tysons with the Player family and the other missionaries! We had pizza and played a scripture trivia game! Then we went and just visited Less Actives and recent converts all day! First we got to see Kieran and he was doing good! then we saw the Macgreggors and they are good too just still a little weird haha. Then we went and saw the man Dan Lane! He was good and we had a good chat with him about Charity! Then we saw this elderly couple that aren't too interested but they let us come in and share a message with them so that was good!
Thursday- Had some time in the morning to do tracting before lunch and so we did that and we had no success but all goods! Then we went to see Rebecca Sloan but she was not there so we went and saw Maurine Fisher in the old folks home instead! She was doing good and was really happy to see us! Then we went to see a referral but they were not there so we will try again! Then we did our weekly planning for awhile and that was good. Then we went and saw Brother Mackey and then we saw the Farimonds! We are really trying to visit a lot of people and build up a good teaching pool so we have people to pull from to go teach! Then we got some free kebabs from Kieara Porter at the mall! It was delicious!!
Friday- Had a good DTM in the morning and after that we were able to go do a district finding! So we went and did some tracting around the Dapto area and we had good success! Everyone got at least one potential so that was sweet! Then I had to go and do a baptismal interview for one of the Elder's investigators and it went good! It is fun getting to see the excitement in someone who is about to get baptized and to hear their testimony. :) Then we went and saw Paul Souris and his family! They just had a new born baby and it is so cute! We taught them about the Atonement and did a cool object lesson for them. Then we went to Nicola and Robert's house to teach them about God's plan for all of us and about accepting his will. It was a good lesson and they are both progressing really well!
Saturday- We had a b day party to go to for Kim Player, who is a recent convert in the ward! So we went to that for a little bit and then we went and taught Bro. Wood about coming unto Christ and it was really good! Then we tracted for like 2 hours and it was so fun! It felt like 20 minutes haha! Everyone we met that day was really nice so that made it good and we had some people tell us that we could come back next week so we were stoked about that! Then we went to one of the member's kid's baptism at the church! It was a good atmosphere and there were a lot of non members there so that was good for us! We got to sing a song too as missionaries and that was fun haha even though I suck at singing! Then we tried to do some visits but had no luck!
Sunday- Today kinda dragged on haha. After church we went and gave a blessing to Connie (Keiran's mom) and then after that we saw Sister Skarrats who is a less active lady because she doesn't like tithing. So then we went and tried to visit more people but man we just had no luck! So then we GQ'd and we had no luck again! haha so then we went and saw Cherry Lijuan and taught her at her doorstep! That is about it for our day haha pretty slow day to be honest!
Omni 1:26 "And now, my beloved brethren, I would that ye should come unto Christ, who is the Holy One of Israel, and partake of his salvation, and the power of his redemption. Yea, come unto him, and offer your whole souls as an offering unto him, and continue in fasting and praying, and endure to the end; and as the Lord liveth ye will be saved."
We need to offer our whole souls unto Christ and come unto him! His hands are always stretched out towards us and all we have to do is reach out to him by praying, keeping the commandments, going to church and reading the scriptures! I know it works, I have seen it in my life and the lives of others, so do it!:) Love you guys have a good week!
