NRA Museum
     Hey everyone I hope your week was pretty good! This week was good for us and we got to do quite a bit of service, so it was sweet! Last Monday, for P-Day, we went to the NRA (National Rifle Association) museum and that was awesome! There was soooo many guns there it was great! We had to hustle through it, but Elder Kerr and I could have spent hours in there.
     Throughout the week we had some service opportunities and this week was one of my favorites of my mission. We got to help Brian Doran (a nonmember) tan a deer hide!! We scraped all the extra meat and fat from the hide and then stretched it out. It took sooo long, but it was fun. After we stretched it out we made a concoction of eggs, mayo, and vegetable oil and rubbed it on the hide. It wasn't the best smelling thing, but hey it was still fun.

     Another service we did was for a member who is selling their house and moving. We went and raked the leaves for her so she could do an open house this weekend. Elder Kerr was using a blower and a chipmunk ran in front of him, he looked at me and I looked at him and it clicked, we dropped everything and started trying to catch the dang thing! We weren't quite fast enough though and it got away. It started sprinkling rain so we had to hurry and finish before the storm hit, so we were working hard.
     Later in the week we went back to Brian's and worked on the hide again, this time we had to soften it up so we rubbed it back and forth on a tree. After that we stretched it again and then rubbed it with the oil. We then helped him put all the screens back in his windows and took care of a neighbor's lawn who is in Vegas for the winter.
     We had a couple lessons this week but nothing spectacular. We did have an investigator come to church for the first time in a longgggg time, so that was good! All together it was a good week and a fun week. I hope y'all have a great week and a great Thanksgiving!
