Sorry it has been so long since I have written a weekly email. Life has just been so crazy here in the Vineyard Ward! Full time bike has been keeping us busy! But Sister Wheelwright and I love to spend so much time in the sun. Full time bike is better than car because we actually get to talk to everyone we see! (Not that everyone of them wants to talk to us but its worth a shot :))
On Tuesday we had a Zone Conference because our mission got the little black boxes in our cars....its called the Driver Accountability Program which means that it gets reported to our president if we drive too fast, stop too fast or really do anything that isn't safe. So another reason to be grateful to be on full time bike :) But other than that Zone Conference was good. Loved seeing some other missionaries and getting to see some of them before they go home this next transfer.
The week has been kind of slow, just biking and making the best of everything! I love missionary work and its fun here in the Vineyard Ward. The members are the best and they always take care of us so that is a plus :) We just need to find those that are searching for the gospel!
We had one investigator drop us this week. Her name is Shannon, we haven't been able to meet with her in over a month so we figure that it would happen. When we went by she told us that we helped her faith in the bible and helped her really want to stay with her church....ya....not what we wanted but its ok. We know that one day she will understand the importance of the restored gospel! Oh but we started talking to her about temples and church history and she was super interested in the temples so we are taking her on a temple tour next week!!!! :) Super excited for that!!!! :) Some times you have to teach people in different ways :)
I hope all of you are doing ok and keep up all of your good missionary work up at home! Share the gospel with all those that you know and if you don't know how then go and ask a missionary to teach you how! They would love you too :) Go and help them do the work of the Lord!
I love you all and I love this work! The Gospel of Jesus Christ is simple and it is true!!! Never forget that! Have an amazing week!!!!!
