This week seemed like it just flew by just like the last few months have! haha
On Tuesday we had district meeting which was really great and then had some great lessons with Inez and the Bajnauth's where we had to have a drop lesson with them. They hadn't been keeping any commitments and wouldn't come to church so we had to tell them that we had to spend our time with people who are willing to change and keep commitments. It was hard for me because I was really excited for all of them but I guess they just weren't ready yet.
On Wednesday we had some good lessons then headed to Seminary and after that we headed straight to "fun night all" at the church. We want to get those kind of things like fun night and firesides back up and running so people will get excited and come back to church. Then we ended the night by visiting Moses and Shirley Dyal where we had a cool lesson about what? SHE ACTUALLY READ HER BOOK OF MOROMON. It was super great! She had good questions and was actually paying attention to the story in the Book of Mormon. Awesome lesson.
Then on Thursday we had a pretty average day of visiting people and having regular lessons mostly less actives and we had another awesome lesson with Inez and we had a trade off planned with the Zone Leaders, but they got there late and we all had to stay the night at our apartment.
On Friday me and Elder Hendry headed to Canje for the day on a trade-off. We had a good day planned but because it rained so much we had to cancel a ton of them because so many people were flooded in. I forgot my camera so I couldn't get any pictures but it was a lot of fun teaching and learning with Elder Hendry. We were supposed to trade back at the end of the day but they were late getting to Canje so we all had to spend the night there.
On Saturday we went back to our own apartment and did our studies. Then we got back in a bus to go over the bridge to attend the seminary graduation which brought back some awesome memories of seminary graduation for me last year! Then we came home and spent a few hours cleaning the branch building because the branch president had to go to a different branch on Sunday
On Sunday we were in charge of the branch which only had like 6 people come so that was kind of a let down, but after that a member family invited us to a wedding of theirs and we spent some time eating some awesome curry there.
All in all it was a great week with a lot going on. I love staying busy, especially when doing missionary work!
I hope you all have a great week!
Love, Elder Dorrance
