Temple Buddies. Elder Rickertsen, Elder Brady, Elder Grow,
Elder Harper, Elder Cook and Elder Rice.
     So this week was pretty good we had a lot of fun and did work, so it was good! Monday we emailed and then we drove around trying to find a cheap place to golf, but that doesn't really exist in this area we found out. We ended up just all coming back to our place and hanging out playing some little games. Elder Cook and I had missionary correlation at Brother Wride's house before dinner and then we had dinner at the Jones' home. After dinner we did some street contacting.
     On Tuesday we did service pretty much all day. We were with both the other sets of elders at one of their investigators' house.
     Wednesday morning we helped move a

Happy Birthday Bro. Meng!
whole town house, well just the things inside it to another one. There was twelve missionaries there to help, so we got everything packed and out of the first home and into the next one before lunch. The town house they moved into was just down the street so we were filling mini vans or just walking things over, it was a crazy move. Went to the Meng's and taught some English and then we checked on a couple less-actives. Only one answered the door, but at least we got that.
     Thursday we had Zone Training and then one of Elder Cook's former investigators from a previous area took us out to lunch. After lunch we tried some more less-actives from the list Brother Wride gave us, but none of them answered. We met with a recent convert named Theo, who was just baptized less than a year ago along with his wife and young daughter. He's a great guy and he wants to come out working with us so that will be fun.

     Friday we woke up at 4:00 in the morning and went to the temple! It was awesome! It was my first time going to do a session on my mission, so I was super excited. We didn't make the session we wanted to so we had to wait for the next one, but we got a little private tour so it was all good. After the temple we came back and Elder Cook and I met with Barrett, our investigator who just got back from Turkey, so we were pretty excited about that too. Then we went to the Meng's for dinner and a cake because it was Brother Meng's birthday. After we had a little party we ended on a spiritual note and read some scriptures with them. It was definitely a good day.
     On Saturday we went to the Canigiani's for lunch and Jon made his "famous" steak and cheese sandwiches which were reallyyyy good. Brother Todd picked us up there and we went with him to help move the book shelves that were an eagle project of one of the boys to the Salvation Army. He took us out to lunch and while we were eating we started talking to this lady, well she started talking to us about the Book of Mormon play and we ended up giving her a couple cards and she said because we were so nice she would look into some of the stuff we talked about! We tried some more less-actives from the list in the evening, but we didn't have any luck with anyone being home. 
Elder Cook & I teaching primary - "Elephants on Bicycles"

     In church on Sunday we got to teach Sister Fairchild's class again and it was awesome! We were teaching on how the Lord prepares us to serve a mission and so after we had a good spiritual part of the lesson we played some hangman with missionary related words. All except for the last one, I let one of the girls pick something totally random and she came up with "Elephants on Bicycles." It was so funny when we figured it out and we got a picture of it. It was great! We had dinner at the Smith's and they are an awesome family, they have so much faith and the spirit is so strong in their home. It's always cool going over there. Well I hope everyone had a great week and that you have a great week! Stay awesome!
