Week 40 - Pizza, Mexican Food & Easter Sunday

This week was so amazing!

On Monday we had a great P-day, and wrapped up the night by eating dinner with the Macaphee Family.

Tuesday, we went to MCSA and they put on a pizza party for us for the work we do there! Then we had a lesson with Robert, a member who was just baptized a couple weeks ago. After that we tried to contact a couple people but with no luck we headed in to a tienda (store) here in town where we met a awesome man whose name is Andreas! After talking with him about what we do as missionaries and getting to know him we had soccer practice. Then we wrapped up the night by having dinner with the Garridos. Brother Garrido makes amazing Mexican food!

Wednesday we worked all day in West Liberty. We loooooove West Liberty! Its population is 60% Hispanic. Their elementary school is one of the first in the nation to be bilingual. We had great lessons with people while we were there!

Thursday, we had district meeting, and it was so amazing because the assistants to the president were there! I gave a training too. After district meeting we went on exchanges with the assistants, Elder Anderson and Elder Weiss. They are amazing missionaries, and I learned so much from them!

Friday, we started off our day by having an a amazing lesson with a man we are teaching, and were able to explain to him that it is never to late to get on the right path! Then we did weekly planning. After weekly planning we taught a part-member family, and had such a great time! The husband is not a member but we are working with him and have to take a little bit different of an approach, because he has been taught the missionary lessons 3 times already. But he said he would come to the baptism on Saturday and Church in Sunday.

Saturday we headed back to West Liberty and worked there till 5:30 and the headed back to Muscatine for a baptism. We were expected 10 investigators to be there. But none of them showed up... So that was a little disappointing, but everyone has their choice.

Sunday we celebrated Christ's Resurrection!!! Sacrament meeting was so great!! Elder Steele, Elder Coalwell, Elder Ganoe and I sang in the choir! It was a lot of fun! We sang "This Is the Christ". After church we studied for a little bit, which was a very powerful experience to study Christ's last days on the day of Easter. Then for dinner we went over to Bishop Clove's house, all six missionaries that are serving in the Muscatine ward!
