Coffee shop, cards, handball and BACON family!

Elder Griffin at Orphan Acers

February 16, 2016
Hey everyone!
It's been a fun week!
Monday night we said goodbye to a couple members with elder Holmes and then Tuesday morning we shipped him out.
My new companion is Elder Ryan Williams from Layton UT, He's a lot of fun and we've enjoyed working together. He's been out for about 8 months now and we've been working a lot on cleaning up our area book.

Tuesday we spent most of the day dealing with transfer things, getting settled and we had get to it Tuesday, it was lots of fun, we played handball.
Wednesday  we gave a really good church tour to Kristen and had a whole herd of children there. it was pretty fun showing them all the rooms of the church building. For dinner we went to the Bacons, it was a lot of fun. we really enjoy the Bacons. They're a great family.
Thursday we had a lesson with Nancy in a coffee shop, it was lots of fun and unfortunately she isn't interested in the church, but she is going to read the book of Mormon, so i trust in it's converting power. We also did service at the food bank and it was absolutely a delight. I love the food bank!
Friday was pretty uneventful, but we had a really good dinner with the Mortensen's and it was just like going home! They're a great family.
Saturday we met with Bishop and it was great to get to know him better and work with him to help us better do the work in this area. We also went to Good samaritans and had a good game of cards with lester and it was just a good service opportunity.
Crappy job!
Sunday we had the Stake conference broadcast, which was amazing. then we went to priesthood preview with Gregory, then afterwards participated in a ward baptism for a boy named William, IT was really good and he was really happy the missionaries participated in his confirmation. Afterwards we went to the Deobalds and had a really good lesson with Kelly on Scripture study, we brought a RM sister with us to help fellowship Kelly and it was pretty funny because it was like we were teaching in a trio. Other than that, there isn't much else that happened, lots of walking and lots of fun discussions with Elder Williams.
Love Ya'll!
