Week 39

AREA: Central Tucson 
COMPANION: Elder Kapele  

Monday: Today was pretty good, this morning we just went to Roy's, did
laundry, and ate some lunch there. We had a multi zone basketball
tournament and I watched... Haha was pretty fun to watch. Had a lesson
with Jason which was pretty good. Gave him a prayer rock and he really
likes it.

Tuesday: Pretty busy day. Had Foodbank after studies which was fun.
After Foodbank we went to Buffalo Wild Wings with everyone and had
horrible service. Had a lesson with Vicente which went great. Things
with him are going great and he is on track to being baptized on the
28th. We then went to Lee's for new member lessons which was good.
Tried to go and visit our new investigators Rafael and Olivia but they
were sick so we rescheduled for another day.

Wednesday:  Today we didn't do a whole lot. This morning we did our
normal routine... We didn't have district meeting today so we decided
to meet up as a district and have district lunch. Went to a Sanoran
Hotdog stand, super good. It's a hotdog wrapped in bacon with a bunch
of toppings on it. It's the Chicago styled hotdog of Tucson. Had an
unexpected lesson with Matt continuing to answer more of his
questions. Kinda a bible bash session but not really at the same time.

Thursday: Kevins birthday! He can buy cigarettes now;) haha Went to
Foodbank again, it was pretty cool. Folded a bunch of boxes. After
Foodbank we went over to Vicente's and taught the law of Chastity with
Roy. Vicente really wants to get baptized and is very accepting of the
things we're inviting him to do. Had dinner and then went over to
Lee's for a new member lesson. Tried to go too another lesson that was
scheduled for tonight and it canceled again.

Friday: Had a half mission conference today. Woke up and immediately
headed over to the stake center where we were having the conference.
Really good conference, we were once again visited by a member of the
70. His name was Elder Foster and he spoke on member missionary work
and how to affectively involve them in the work. Really fun seeing all
the other missionaries too. We then had a lesson with Jason which went
well, met up with the AP's to grab a package from them.

Saturday: After studies we went over to a members house to help them
take their pool cover off. Brother Larson is 93 years old, a retired
dentist, and a WWII veteran. They were awesome and brought us to smash
burger after helping them out. Tried to go to a lesson but it
canceled... There was a huge food drive today that we volunteered at.
It was at the post office and we helped move sooo much food. Dinner
bailed on us so Travis the guy that works at the Foodbank gave us
money to go out. While we're were out to eat a lady came up and gave
us a piece of paper with scriptures on it about our purpose in life.
It was very nice of her. Tonight was transfer calls and were staying
together again. Elder Kapele is now the district leader though which
is cool.

Sunday: Today was pretty good, gave a talk in church that was based
off a talk called "stay by the tree" by Elder Pearson. Very good talk
about enduring to the end. I would recommend reading it and studying
it for sure. After church we changed and then went back to the church
for lunch with a member where they stuffed us with food. It was very
good. Rest of the day we tried to go visit I people.

I would like to share a quick message about how through Christ we can
be perfected. Our loving Heavenly Father has given us a savior who
atoned for all of our sins. Through our savior Jesus Christ we can be
perfected if we are willing to repent. There is an amazing scripture
in Moroni 10:32

32 Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves
of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all
ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then
is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect
in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can
in nowise deny the power of God.

I love this scripture!  I know that Christ is real and if we let him
into our hearts, through him we can perfected. I love my Savior Jesus
Christ and so thankful for all that he has done for us.

Hope you have a great week everyone!
