Week 30

AREA: Benson, AZ
COMPANION: Elder Rasmussen

Friends and Family,
This week was honestly pretty boring and we didn't get to do a whole lot...

        Monday was our pday as usual and we went on exchanges with the zone
leaders after all day Tuesday. Exchanges were pretty good, Elder Ruiz
was pretty good. While we were on the exchange we were able to teach a
lot of people. Their area is pretty busy compared to ours. The
exchange kinda sucked for Elder Rasmussen because Elder Vance had food
poisoning or something so they just stayed home all day while he threw
up. That must have been super fun for Elder Rasmussen and Vance.
        Wednesday was pretty zone meeting so we had to go to that. When we
went outside to head out, our tire was flat so we had to put the spare
on. Got to zone conference and it went over as usual, we didn't get
home until about 4:00 which didn't leave us much time to do anything.
Thursday we had to drive to Tucson for doctors appointments, those
went well but once again took up a lot of time... Friday was weekly
planning which took up a lot of time... Saturday was the first day all
week we actually had time to visit people, we went and saw Dori which
was pretty fun. She got a new dog named Beautiful, it's a Husky with
blue eyes. While we were there we talked about temples again and we're
going to try and help her in any way that we can to help make it to
the temple. We also were able to read with Aaron and spend some time
helping him.
        Sunday was pretty interesting... Elder Rasmussen has been having
challenges sleeping lately and had a very challenging time sleeping
last night and only had 2 hours of sleep... We tried going to Benson
Ward church in the morning but he was practically completely out of it
so we decided it would be best to not go. We did go to Butterfield
church which was good, he was still exhausted the whole time but it
was all good. After church we had a lesson with Toni our newer
investigator that has cancer. Things with her are going really good so
far. She read the introduction and was asked her what she thought of
it and her exact response was, "it was kind of those things were
you're just like... Damn, didn't know that." That was a pretty good
response in my opinion haha. We then showed her the new Easter Video
that the church released and talked about the sacrifices that Christ
made for us.

This month is the month of Easter. On Easter we celebrate what Christ
did for us. Because of Him we have everything, without him we would
not be here today. Jesus Christ is our savior and he has blessed us
with an infinite atonement. Without this infinite atonement we would
not be able to return to our Heavenly Father. I am so thankful for
what our Heavenly Father has done for us by blessing us all with a
savior. Without him we would be lost but since we do have a savior we
can be cleansed from sin.

This is the link to the church's new Easter Campaign Video:) Enjoy it
and share it:)
Love you all! Thanks for all you do!
