Happy 4th of July!
This week was a good one once again. We didn't do much finding this week just because we had a lot of other things going on but we were still able to hand out two Book of Mormon and meet a couple new people who said we could come back sometime and teach them, so hopefully they are actually home at the times they said we could come back.
I also went on exchanges with Elder Fielding in Orchard Park and that was a lot of fun. The rest of the week was mostly doing service. There was a family moving out of the ward for a job on Texas so we went and helped them move all of their stuff to a storage unit and that was really good to just spend some time in regular clothes, and with the members. We did that for several hours on two days. We also did some service for a lady named Suzanne who was the hoarder lady so I cleaned up another corner of her lawn and we taught her a lesson afterwards and she really liked it. She was really appreciative of our service and she said she would read the Book of Mormon.
We also taught a lesson to Robert at the church and he really liked it and he ended up coming to church this Sunday and it was a really good fast and testimony meeting and he enjoyed it and he even asked "how would I join this parish?" So hopefully he continues to progress.
We had a lost sheep meeting to try and locate all of the members on the roster with some of the leaders in the ward and were able to find a couple so that was great. We helped teach young women's on Sunday so that was a lot of fun! Then after church we went to the Alessi's for dinner for the last time :( It's ok though because they are a family that I will stay in touch with for sure!
Then that night the hunters had a really big fireworks show at there house with most of the ward, and a lot of their neighbors. It was a really big show with some really big fireworks and there was only two close calls so that was a lot of fun!
Then this morning we had a Fourth of July breakfast at the Collets with most of the ward again. I love this ward sooo much!! The people here are just so awesome and I'm going to be sad to leave them in a couple weeks but I'm going to try and stay in touch with all of them and I'll have to come and visit. If there was any place in New York I would live it would definitely be Orchard Park. It's such a good ward!
Have a good week!
