We were able to get our usual P Day weekly preparations done. It wasn't a too eventful day. We were able to have a Nerf war for the zone activity.
In the morning after our studies we gave Elder Dodd/Sparto a ride to the mission office. We grabbed some lunch then dropped them off. We did a service were we smashed a members old electronics. We headed to the Tuesday dinner appointment with the Jensen's. We went to the church for ward council, but it was canceled. We did some finding for the night we met a guy named Frits and we taught him the restoration. He listened to it, but didn't really accept our invitation.
We started the day after studies with some finding. We didn't find anyone home. We went to do a service but we had to postpone it till the next day. We helped Elder Hansen/Cook with a blessing then had dinner. After dinner we did some more finding we met the Para family and we taught them the restoration, they listened to it they are a great family. We met up with Sister Avila and shared a quick message with her. We were going to meet with the Valencia family but they weren't able to meet.
Our day started with district meeting we focused on one of the fundamentals of missionary work teaching people, not lessons. We also discussed how important it is to have the spirit while teaching. Elder Westerguard gave us a call to help take some more cars from the dealership. We hurried back to help finish a move that we had going on. After our dinner we went out and tried to see some people before the end of the night.
In the morning we had service at Rise Against Hunger with the A3 Elders. It was a busy day they had a lot of events to get ready. Brother Nagrohow brought us to lunch at Cali Tacos. We went back and finished up as much as we could before we had to leave. We had a meeting at the mission home. After dinner we went to see the Valencia family.
We did some weekly planning that absorbed a lot of our time. Two former missionaries were visiting so we met them at Joe's. We stopped by Glenn's house but he didn't answer which was kind of surprising. We had a dinner at Del Taco before we went to go see Jessie. We read the Book of Mormon with him and talked about church attendance. We stopped by Glenn's house again before the end of the night to see if he was home. There was no answer which is surprising. So we tried to see if we could get in, but it is a fortress. Then we tried the neighbor that keeps an eye on him, they weren't home. We decided we are unsure of what happened and that we should try again tomorrow, if he isn't home to maybe call the police.
Brother Boltz had a couple of friends he brought to church. We were able to talk to them a little bit and setup appointments with them. Elders Fisher/Pearson/Beddes/Crowmar were visiting for a farewell talk of a recent convert along with the two former missionaries. We got a call during sacrament meeting. Turned Glenn was dead in his house the whole time. We stopped by his house after church and talked with his family members, we also offered our help. Our dinner was with Bishop Gonzalez. After dinner we helped move a piano before we went in for the night.
I'm losing at things I have already said and not said. I may have already said this before. It is part of God's plan to have adversity. While living in mortality we experience adversity, this is the trials, disappointment, sadness, sickness and headache. These things will bring you growth spiritually and temporal. There is different sources of adversity with many causes. The way that you are able to bear and progress is turning to the Lord. This will ease the struggle and refine you for the better.
