Our Missions' Cookin...Teaching, Service and a Big Ole BBQ

Monday, Mar 20, 2017                                                Onalaska, TX

" We started off our week by doing service-raking leaves. After that we went to another members house and laid sod. We did some service the next day for another member and we cleaned out his garage with some guys from the ward.

The next day we had a dinner/lesson with the part member family we have been teaching and it was great. He made us really good pork chops. We had an amazing lesson where we taught the Restoration and he asked how he could be baptized. He asked all these super solid questions and we talked for awhile about the word of wisdom.

Thursday, we had a party at a members cause a former missionary sister came back and visited and they had a big ole BBQ for her and her family. There were a lot of members that came. They brought their guitars and played and sang songs. It was really cool.

Friday we used up a ton of miles and went to this small town named Corrigan. We knocked a couple of doors and found this lady to teach. At the end of the lesson she wouldn't take the Book of Mormon-that was sad. We made our long trek back and had dinner with a member at an 'all you can eat' Chinese buffet.

On Saturday we taught one of our investigators and we will probably not be able to continue with her because she doesn't want to come to church. I asked her if there was something that was holding her back and she said nothing but still wouldn't come....Sigh....The highlight was when the part member family came to church. We were happy about that.
