We're On a Relay For Life......

Monday Apr 24, 2017                                             Onalaska, TX
Monday May 1 2017          

This is a combination of two weeks. A little sparse on the 24 but he made up for it on the 1st of May.

"The week of the 17th we basically knocked a bunch of doors and found some people but most were not interested. We also were able to go to Kingwood  for a meeting. Always good when we get to go to Kingwood. 

We also moved two people this week. For church we had three investigators show up and they all really enjoyed church. I taught Gospel Principles and my other two comps split off and helped teach Primary." 

" Last week (week of the 24th) on P-day, we and the Sister missionaries went to Lake Livingston State Park and rode some bike trails and stuff like that. 

We also had a couple of really cool lessons with a couple of our progressing investigators. We ate at this members house and they fed us catfish, which he fished from his porch. It was the best fish I've ever had. It was so good! He told us that it was all you can eat.

We did our Hour of Power and talked to a bunch of people. The last guy was a bit hard to talk to. I started to talk about how Christ called his twelve apostles and then he stopped me and told us that Christ also called twelve women. I told him no and asked where that was found. He said not from the scriptures. We tried to testify of Christ but he chose not to listen. Then we visited this less active and he loved us and gave us these cool pens. He told us he would take us fishing on p-day. 

On Friday we worked at the Relay For Life event. and that was way fun. We worked at the National Cancer Society booth and we talked with people. Cancer touches a lot of lives and we were thankful to help. We also had a giant turkey leg and ate some deep fried cheesecake which was amazing.

Saturday we loaded some hay and ate at this place called Floridas. We played some basketball with some less actives.

On Sunday we had church and one of my comps was in a skit in Primary in which he was a son of Helaman. He was dressed in armor. It was awesome! Later that evening we had a meeting where we saw David Archuleta and he spoke to us and sang like ten songs. It was really cool and I even shook his hand. I'm pretty sure every sister's heart, in the whole entire chapel, melted, when he was shaking our hands. The Sisters pretty much pushed all the Elders outta the way, ha ha. It was a super good, motivational meeting. We got back at 8:40 and went to dinner and had amazing Mexican food. A good week!

This picture was sent by a member with the following : "Look who helped us at the Polk County Relay for Life in Livingston , TX The American Cancer Society took this picture and posted it on their facebook page. The missionaries helped gather registration information for ACS. Their presence opened up numerous opportunities for conversations for us with our friends, teammates, and Relay participants. Keep those prayers flowing. They are working! Thanks for sending your best. They are working hard and we love them. P.S. The lady with the purple hair is a 37 year cancer survivor and a Marshall Arts Grand Master. "
