This week was pretty cool and stuff. It was a little crazy too. Every week is crazy though. That’s what makes it fun. First we had P-day. It was fun. We played basketball and ultimate frisbee. Then we went on exchanges with the Lake Shawnee elders. Tuesday we were on exchanges for the whole day. But we also had district meeting for the first part of the day. After that I went with Elder Rose and worked in his area. Not a whole lot happened though.
Wednesday we had another slower day. But weekly planning was good. We walked around a lot after that and tired to visit people. Dinner was really good. A member made us some ribs. They were awesome. The last thing we did was teach Paula and Rick. It was a pretty good lesson. Thursday was when things started picking up. We had a special meeting in the morning with all the missionaries in Topeka. The zone leaders introduced Operation Thrash, which we like to call Operation Kill. It’s all about getting the members more involved. It’s going to help the whole zone a ton. After the meeting we went to the zoo for service. Nothing too exciting happened during service, but it was still fun. After that we did tracting. Nothing came from it though. Last we went with a member to visit some of the other members.
Friday was a really good day. After lunch we started walking to an area we were going to tract in. On the way our district leader called and said he wanted to blitz the area. So they came up and I went with Elder Rose again. We just tracted and tried to visit some members. We got some good potentials. The other elders stayed at our apartment for the night because we were going to continue our blitz the next day. On Saturday we went to a baptism in the morning. Then we went out to do more tracting and such. At about 4 the other elders went back to their area. Elder McDaniel and I continued tracting. We handed out a couple Bom’s. But then we started to get cold. It was only 15 degrees and we found out later that the wind chill was about -1. So we started walking back to the apartment. We eventually called someone for a ride though because it was so cold. Then we ate dinner and sat trying to get warmed up again.
On Sunday we woke up to only 2 inches of snow. I was a little disappointed because they said we were supposed to get up to 8. But at least that meant church didn’t get cancelled. During church we got a referral from the assistants. We tried to get in contact with them, but we haven’t been able to yet. It didn’t get above 10 degrees on Sunday. So we spent most of the day setting up team ups for next week. We set up 5, which was the challenge the zone leaders gave us on Thursday. We even set one up with the Stake President for the week after. It going to be awesome.
Now it’s P-day. Zone P-day actually. I haven’t gone to a zone P-day since my first week in Guymon. I’ve just been to far away. It’s going to be fun. This week will be awesome.
