Lansing Citizenship

Well it was an interesting week to say the least. I spent a total of 2 1/2 days in Lansing this past week and will be back there to go on trade-offs with the Assistants on Tuesday and then back there again for out MLC the next Tuesday. I am thinking that sometime they are going to make me claim citizenship there!

Saturday, I went to Lansing like I told y'all that we were planning on. I spent the day with Elder Rhodes, who is one of the assistants. We did some things that they needed to do to prepare for transfers this past week, went to Guitar Center and got to jam a little bit on the guitars there, drove around and saw some of the sights of Lansing, and then talked to people on MSU campus. It was a lot of fun! 

Monday, we helped out with transfers here in Mt. Pleasant. We also had several appointments with some new people that we are starting to work with. 

Tuesday, we just did a bunch of things to help the zone for this transfer and then we did a lot of door knocking. 

Wednesday, we had several appointments with people that we are working with (we usually meet with them Mon,Wed, Fri and so it is usually the same people on those days) and got to help out a girl that was recently baptized prepare a talk that she is giving at Stake Conference in a few weeks. 

Thursday is when things kinda got crazy. So I think I mentioned that Elder Blatter has been having some health issues lately. Well, Thursday they got worse and we had to take him to the ER. The ER unfortunately were not able to do much for him and so President Jacobsen (who came up to Mt. Pleasant to talk to us and went to the ER with us) had us pack our bags and go back to Lansing with him. And so Thursday night we spent the night hanging out in the mission home while they tried to find somewhere to get him in.

Friday he had a few appointments and then we were able to come back to Mt. Pleasant last night. 

Today, we are going to Frankenmuth, which is a tourist town that is like an hour away. Apparently there is a huge Christmas store there that is open year round and is "The Worlds Largest Christmas Store" so we are going to check out some of those sights and just kinda hang out. It should be a great week and I am excited for this next transfer!! Thanks for all of the support and prayers!!
