4 months??/

Wednesday, July 2, 2008 7:59 AM
Wow, just over 4 months now. It's crazy. I could be leaving Pompey in a couple weeks too... I'm thinking I want to stay another moves. It'll be 6 months in my Greenie area, but I am really starting to like it here.

Our week was pretty good. I'll just go over some highlights. On Thursday we had a DA with the Wilkeys in Waterlooville. It was really nice. They even had A&W Root beer! Man, I missed that drink:-). Friday we were asked by Margaret to give her a blessing because her granddaughter got married on Saturday and she wasn't feeling well. As soon as she asked I knew I was going to do it. It was really interesting. E. Dutson did the anointing and I did the blessing. I was a little nervous, but all was well. I blessed her that she'd get better and she had a wonderful evening with her family on Saturday. The power of the Priesthood is amazing. Sunday was really special. E. Kieron of the Area Presidency came and spoke in our Sacrament Meeting, which doesn't happen pretty much ever. He spoke about overcoming trials and even a little bit about the missionaries. It was very spiritual. After church we taught a young guy from Nigeria named Zechie. It went really well. We might give him a date to be baptized tomorrow. We'll see. Monday we exchanged with the ZL's in Southampton for the day. I worked with E. Dunaway there. We spent most of the day in a massive park. It was probably around 3-4 miles long. I got back in Pompey around 5. We taught a guy named Martin who used to be a pro-footballer up north. He was really cool and I think he'll enjoy the Plan of Salvation(who doesn't???) Monday was an amazing start for the day. We were blessed with 4 new people to teach!! Our week is full of appointments. I can't believe it. Tuesday we picked up another person. Her name is Jenny. She's half English and half Venezuelan. We made sure she knew that the Book of Mormon is about her ancestors ;-). We taught Matt the Plan of Salvation and committed him to be baptized on the 19th. He was happy to accept.
That's pretty much my week. Today we loaded up our attic with exercise equipment so I should be getting in shape soon. I hope all of you have a great week. Till next time.
