Uncooked Meat And A Spiritual Feast!

Elder Bird had another baptism this past week.  Here's a portion of his play by play letter:

Tuesday was busy.  We had lessons with the Mackey family which went really well. We read and discussed the Plan of Salvation with them.  They are way stoked about the church and everything that we are teaching them. We have seen a huge difference in their family.  They're definitely more unified! :)  We contacted a lot of people, had dinner and a lesson with the Athertons. Memory is doing great.  She is getting ready for baptism and is super stoked about everything we're teaching her. It's been fun getting to know them and to see who this family was before and where they are now! :)  We had a lesson with Wylie. He is the coolest kid ever.  He's always happy and so enthused when we come over for lessons. He has really grasped onto the gospel and the things we're teaching him.

Wednesday we did a bunch of finding in the morning and had another lesson with the Mackey family.  We also had a lesson with Troy Singlton.  Haha, he is a goof!  He's just always joking around, he is fun to teach, just really outgoing and positive.  He has come along way in the past 10 years!   We had dinner with the Roberts again.  Haha, everytime we eat there we have an adventure,  not in a bad way though! In a good way!  It seems like there is always something that goes wrong.  This time the roast didn't cook all the way through so they had to shave the outside of it to eat because it was the only part that was done, but it was really good! :)  We had a lesson with Brandon, got him ready for his baptismal interview and went over some stuff.  He was really excited. Then we had a brief lesson with Memory. We played basketball that night, it was a blast! :)
Thursday we had district meeting and then lunch.  Right after that we had our correlation with our district leader. The zone is doing really well actually!  It's doing the best in the whole mission! :) So we're happy that things are goin so well! :)  We had a lesson with brother Kehne again. He is doing well. We're  working on his stop smoking program with him, and its coming along really well.  We taught him the Gospel of Christ, and he really enjoyed it.  Later we contacted a lot of people, went to Brandon's baptismal interview and then had a really late dinner with brother Heirs and his litttle kid at McDonalds.  Haha! Gotta love Mcdonalds!  After that we had a call in conference with all the zone leaders and just talked about the work.

Saturday was super busy.  We wrote up the baptismal program and got everything set up. We had a lesson with Troy and then a correlation with Elder Jensen, and then another correlation with Brother Jensen. We were luckily able to fit in a few hours to go tracting and get our 12 hours for the week.  Brandon's baptism was awesome. He asked me to baptize him! He is a stud.  His mom was super stoked for it, it went really well and we had a good turn out. 

Sunday we had meetings with the ward all morning. Then we had church and later stake correlation with the stake president and his councilors over missionary work.  Later we did some tracting and picked up a new guy named Michael.  He is black and Muslim and wants to get baptized.  He's actually has taken the lessons before and said he is really excited to get the ball rollin! :)
Today (Monday) I am just resting! Haha, really tired but ready for a new week! :)
