Middle of the Mitten

Greetings from rainy Mt. Pleasant!! It was an interesting week this past week but it was a good week over all! School ended for CMU this week and so now we are going to have to do more work in the town and wont be on campus as much as we usually are. So we are having to shift gears a bit.

Sunday, we had a great Fast and Testimonies meeting. The ward here is so great and we had a few investigators come! We also finished a few videos for the assistants to use in the zone conferences this week and did our normal call-ins. 

Monday, We got to teach several of the people that we have been working with before they leave to go home. We had several great lessons and we are going to continue to teach them via Facebook over the summer. 

Tuesday, I was in Ithica on trade-offs. Me and Elder Carter got to play some racquetball at a small university in Alma (where their apartment is) before having studies and going out for the day. We taught several less actives that they have been working with and a few of them were in St. Louis, MI which is the middle of the mitten!! So I snapped a few photos while I was there! Tuesday night we got to see Shane one last time before he went home for the summer and finished our lesson by playing some basketball on the courts outside his dorm. 

Wednesday, we finished up meeting with the people that we have been meeting with one last time before they went home for the summer. We also got some last minute things worked out before zone conference on Thursday. 

Thursday, we had zone conference all day. Elder Blatter and I had to teach about how to prepare a baptism service and make sure that it flows as smoothly as possible. We also got instructed by President and Sister Jacobsen and the Assistants. There was a guy from SLC that came from the mission department and they installed these driving monitor things on our cars. They track when we are speeding, not wearing our seatbelt, or driving recklessly and reports it to the mission office. Many missionaries were upset about it but I wasn't that worried since I don't feel like I am a terrible driver. It hasn't gone off yet ;) so I think I am doing good! 

Yesterday was a rough day. Elder Blatter has been struggling with some health issues and so that was hard yesterday. But we got to eat lunch with Brother Banner (he drove up to take us to lunch) did some door knocking, and then went to an awesome baptism in Ithica!! It was an amazing baptism and the guy who was baptized has been waiting for months because of health issues to get baptized! The spirit was so strong!! 

Today, we played basketball and we were going to go golfing later today but it is raining so I am not sure what we will do the rest of the day! But tomorrow is Mothers Day and I get to Skype home!!
It should be a great week this next week! Friday we get our transfer calls! I know I am not going anywhere but I will let you know next week if Elder Blatter is still here!! Have a great week!!
