Week 42 - Six weeks in Muscatine, a crazy man & a temple trip

One transfer (6 weeks) down in Muscatine!

Monday - We worked, didn't get to have p-day because we had a temple trip planned for Saturday! We had a great dinner with the Hensen Family, and helped the Jara family pack up their house so they could move to Iowa city on Thursday.

Tuesday -We did service at the MCSA (Muscatine Center for Social Action) and had some great lessons with some people we are teaching.

Wednesday - We had exchanges with the English Elders.  Elder Coalwell came with me which meant I was on my own when we had appointments with people who only speak Spanish... Luckily I got by!

Thursday - We had a great district meeting and afterwards we tried a couple people that said they might be interested. We went to one man's house, he was very drunk and said he was high. We started talking about Christ and he snapped... He saw Elder Steele smile and almost went berserk. Luckily the man thought I was cool so he didn't get angry at me and I calmed the situation down. During his rage he threatened to put Elder Steele through his porch. He was a 280 lb white man. Afterward our adrenaline was pumping like crazy.  Once we got the car we just laughed it off and kept working.

Friday - We focused on finding more people to teach.

Saturday - We had a soccer game. We lost 10-1.... Then we went to Nauvoo and had an amazing time there, it was much nicer not having a 4 hour drive. Instead it was just an hour and a half.

Sunday- We had a great testimony meeting and had great time after church teaching people.
