Hey everyone! how has your week been? Hope it has been good! My week was nice! Monday we had dinner with the T's after p-day was over.. I shared grandma's poem with them. They enjoyed it. Then we went and saw Marc. (V's bf) we taught him a little about the Plan of Salvation. He is coping well with everything.
Tuesday we had a nice district meeting we just made goals as a district for this transfer. We are doing a "Sisters against Elders" OYM (contacting) competition. Let's see who will win.. probably them. They got over 50 last week. haha.. My awesome companion taught about our purpose. She did a great job! After a nice meeting we went and tried to contact a referral. I am pretty sure she just doesn't want to see us... her car has been there every time.. who knows? We then went and saw the R's. They are so awesome! They really make us laugh every time we go over there. He was telling us about the other day when his son was drinking. Afterwards we went contacting! I feel like I haven't been actual contacting in forever!! I love it.. We had dinner with the F. family, we did a Faith Rocket.. the first one didn't work.... #extraawkward.. #catchingmembershomesonfireoneatatime.. Then we had correlation meeting because our ward mission leader couldn't do it on Thursday.. we then chatted with some members for a little bit afterwards.
Wed.. We worked at the thrift store. Oh, the body.... I found out more... it isn't as cool as my last story. Maybe we can just stick to it.... haha a man actually just had a heart attack in the bushes.. How lame is that? Sad. Then went to see J. She wasn't home so we planned for movie night. We picked movies to show. Since it was Sister Kirton's and my turn to do it. This week it was on Repentance. That really has been a big focus for this week.. That and the Atonement.. Wonder Why? I am really looking forward to Easter and General Conference. I cant wait to hear what our prophet and everyone has to say! I can't believe that this will be my second conference on the mission. And the first one was really not that long ago.. but anyway we then had a nice dinner with the D's; Then we went and had a lesson with M. She is getting baptized on Tuesday! We are so excited for her! We just planned her baptism and went over the interview questions with her. We then went and made the programs for he baptism.
Thursday was weekly planning, we got most of it done.. not comp inventory.. but we did that throughout the week. :) We were able to see J. That was good. We then had dinner with Sister R. She took us to the Thia Hut. We have been there a few times, it is really good,so I don't mind. We then went to M's baptism interview. Elder Burnett (our district leader) had us sit in on her interview. It was cool to see how he does those. She is super shy, I am pretty sure that is why he has us go in. but She passed!
Friday we saw Sister W's. Then we had a really fun district service activity. We raked this ladies lawn which was pretty big. It was a really fun way to build our district unity. We have a really great district! We call ourselves the NavarreBreeze. We played with pinecones.. after a few hours of service there we all left. While we were driving the Elders texted us and say "Hey we found a tick, check yourselves." That made us cringe a little. haha We then had a nice dinner with Sister K. ,Sister P. and miss E. J. They came to movie night after that was really great! We watched videos on Repentance.
Saturday we did some service at the thrift store. Then we had a quick lunch then headed to a baptism.. So funny thing.. haha Sister Kirton and I were saying the prayers.. I had opening.... or so I thought.. They had Sister Cooper's name down.. I was like "Are you kidding me? I have been here for almost 8 months and this is what I get? You call me Sister Cooper." hahaha I just went up and prayed anyway but I mean really Sister Cooper was here for about 2 months and I am here for almost 8, it was actually pretty funny. Ward members now call me Sister Cooper to tease me.. haha the lady who made the programs after I prayed realized what she did and was apologizing a ton. :) Oh and the water at the baptism was GROSS!~ lets hope it doesn't look like that tomorrow at our baptism. It was like a brownish green. He had to get dunked twice because his foot came up. After the baptism we went contacting. We contacted this one guy, we found out he was actually a member who hasn't been to church in about 40 years. We then realized he is actually on the roster, so that was pretty neat. He said he may be calling us to help him out with his Family History. Then we went to the C's house. We rode with her down to Pensacola to the stake center for he General Women's Broadcast. It was really good! It's not the same without all the sisters and mom. But it was really nice. We had dinner and I got to see Sister Bracey. :D I really liked how it was all on the Family. Families are so important!
Sunday, Sunday was great! V. came to church!! She just randomly showed up! Her, A. and E. A. was apparently like "Hey we are going to church tomorrow." (He is a less active) He went less active about 10 years ago.. He is about 28 years old. But they just showed up! We were so excited. We think they enjoyed it. They wanted to stay for all three hours but she got a really bad headache.. :( but they stayed for the first two hours. That really was, I think the highlight of my week. :) We had a nice dinner with the L's. We then went and saw a less active couple. That was nice. :)
So today we played "Hunger Games Dodge Ball" That was really fun! Again, We have a great district. anyways, well I love y'all and hope y'all have a wonderful Easter and enjoy conference.
Love, Sister Hannah Seegrist
