So today was Sunday. I hope you are having a fun day and church isn’t that bad. Church was pretty fun for me. We were almost late, just moving a bit slow in the morning. Both of us were super tired. So when I woke up at 6:30 a.m. I turned on the light, and I got started on my morning work out but, my body just said ‘Nope’. So I did take a 5 minute nap on the floor. So it was just a really slow morning.
We get to church, about 10 minutes before sacrament, see back home with a large ward no one would have noticed, but this is a small ward so everyone will notice. We get there and there was a less active that showed up. He came up to us and told us that he is just going to follow us for the whole day, which he did. So sunday school was pretty straight forward, bit interesting. I taught the class, and the subject was on the Judgement and the three kingdoms, so pretty cool stuff!
Afterwards was Priesthood, learned about preparedness all about being ready. Did you know that one of the biggest topics about being ready is a food storage and missionary work! I’ll let you think about that. So after that we had dinner at the Bleyls and Sister Bleyl has been asking me for weeks to bring my practice chanter to play. So I finally did, mostly because last time she said I wouldn’t get dinner if I didn’t bring it (in a joking way) (I think?). So I brought it! Because I wanted food.
After that we went out finding. Not much luck getting a bit hard to go out and to keep finding, but going to keep doing it becuase it’s the right thing to do.
Well Alex this week has been hard, but I’m learning a lot. I’m not sure what I’ve learned will help you out, but something that could help because it’s Christmas. You could find one good/nice thing to do and write it down for that day. Find a way to be a missionary now! and I would love to hear about it.
I love you very much Alex! I hope you are having a good week, stay safe and have fun! I’ll talk to you tomorrow1
