It is a rainy day here in Mt. Pleasant and I think it is supposed to rain the rest of the day. We had a pretty good week. Elder Blatter is going to have to go home to take care of some medical issues so the next few days should be interesting while we figure out where I will go and who I will be with.
Saturday we drove up to Frankenmuth and went to the "World's Largest Christmas Store." It was HUGE!! I was really impressed with how big it was!! There were all sorts of stuff there, but the most impressive part was they literally had every single Christmas ornament you can imagine! It was really cool!
Sunday, we had our normal church and call ins.
Monday, we had a few appointments and got to do some door knocking. I have come to realize that I enjoy talking to college students on campus way more than door knocking and I am really ready for school to start back up.
Tuesday, I was in Lansing with Elder Rhodes on trade-offs. We got to teach several people and also got to do some finding on campus! It was really fun and I enjoyed getting to be on the MSU campus!
Wednesday, we drove to Bay City and we went to their district meeting and blitzed their area that day. I got to be with Elder Dorough who has only been out about 2 months. It was really fun and I think that he is really going to be a great missionary.
Thursday, we taught a few lessons and talked to a few students on campus. We actually met the starting center for CMU men's basketball team! His name is Luke Meyer and he is going to meet with us on Monday to learn about the church. So that was kinda cool!
Yesterday, we got to go to lunch with Brother Banner from Grand Rapids. He then went with us to visit several less active members. After that, we did some door knocking and found a guy that is on CMU's football team and he invited us to come back and teach him also!! Before long our whole teaching pool will be collegiate athletes!! We also got to teach the family of a girl who joined the church 6 months ago. Her mom had some questions about the Book of Mormon and what we believe, so they invited us over for dinner and we got to teach them more about our church! It was a really good lesson and they are going to have us back over in the near future!!
This morning we got to eat at IHOP and do some shopping. I am not sure what we have planned the rest of the day. We are waiting on President Jacobsen to call us back to figure out our plans for Elder Blatter going home. We will probably have to spend some time helping him pack and stuff.
But it should be an interesting week!! I guess we will see what happens!! I hope y'all have a great week!! Thanks for all the love, support and prayers!!!
P.S. Here are some pics from Frankenmuth!
