October 6, 2014 - Missionary Blockbuster!

OH, I love conference weekend!

But first, the rest of the week.  :)

We had dinner with the Renyolds again this week.  Nothing too exciting to report.  They released their raccoon.  Sister Renyolds was sick, and we didn't get our dutch oven dinner because it was raining.  But we got chicken roll-ups, and they were pretty good. :)  They also made a peach cobbler in the oven which was good too. :)

We also met the Dosher family this week, and talked to Amanda.  The Elders had been teaching them a little bit, so we've been trying to meet them.  They're Catholic, went through the lessons and everything to join the Catholic church.  So, apparently, Amanda has been reading the Book of Mormon, and she's just hung up on little things like steel not being created and horses not existing and stuff like that.  And I'm just like "really?!  REALLY?!"  And it's not bad-- it will help us only gain a stronger testimony about the Book of Morrnon.  But it's the fact that she doesn't pray to know the truth.  And she's really smart, so it makes us look stupid.  But whatever.  It'll be interesting to see how our next conversation goes.  So we encouraged her to pray before she read the Book of Mormon, and we would check up in a couple of weeks.

On Tuesday, we got to watch the new "Meet the Mormons" movie!  YOU GUYS IT'S SO GOOD!!!!!  When it comes out, you should really see it.  More than anything it will strengthen your testimony of Christ and his Gospel.  I loved it. :)  And it will be nice to be able to talk about it with other people instead of being like ".... what is that?"  Yup.  I loved it.  It was great.

Other than that, the middle of the week was pretty slow.  We didn't get into a lot of homes this week.

So, onto Conference!  

We were able to watch the Saturday Afternoon session with the Taylors, and it was really good.  We also ate lunch with them, and just got to be friends with them.  I really love the Taylors, they're so awesome! :)

We also got to watch the Saturday morning session with the Pitts.  I love them!  David is the cutest 7-year old I have ever met! :)

We also taught the Martins and the Higleys this week.  Both lessons went well.

And... that's it.  Sorry that it's short this week.  I can't think of what to write.  Please forgive me!  I love you all!  Stay strong in your faith!
