Hey there fam and friends!
This week was a little crazy, but great!
Had a solid Zone Conference on Wednesday about "Follow Thou Me" and following the Savior and creating a good mission culture especially with the mission changes.
Thursday we spent all day in the car! from 12:00 to 10:30 pm. Went right to sleep when we got home haha. Drove 400 miles! We had to install new smoke/co2 detectors in the missionary apartments and had a baptism interview in Challis! The lady is super cool and way converted! A little different but we need more differences in the church so it was great. :) We drove through Stanley and that is like one of the prettiest places ever. I have pictures as well!
Also this week we helped butcher chickens with a less-active family! It was a lot of fun. I thought it was going to be nasty, but it wasn't too bad! They cut their heads off, then defeathered them, then Elder Wihongi and I did the gutting! We each gutted about 15-20. They did 65 total. We even got our own chicken to go cook up. Good times, but sadly did not get any pictures.
We have some solid things going on in Richfield and the members are really doing good missionary work to help us out. Carey is doing great as well, good families to teach and we have another pretty solid potential that we hope to meet with on Wednesday!
I love this work with all my heart! It can be so stressful and wears you out a lot, but it is so rewarding. When you realize it is not about you, but about everyone you meet, then it becomes special. You stop worrying about how tired you may be, or whatever, and you focus on making other people happy. I really have grown to love these people.
