Hey everyone! How are you? I
am doing pretty good. I still like it out here so that is good. so this week we
had a lot of service. Like 10 hours or something like that. So the biggest
thing we have been working on is this interpreting project I'm not sure I can
give you all the details on, but it is going good so far. So this week we had
some interesting things happen we got like 3 or 4 or 5 referrals, most of which
live up in Bellingham. Which is super far away. So we are working out how to
work with those, we also got invited to go to a old person's home for people
with memory loss and meet one of the workers there named Vernita, who is from
Germany and super cool! We invited her to come to the Branch and she said she
would some time, she seems very open and we are excited to progress with her.
We have also met a new family (The Potter family) who has a hard of hearing son
who we are going to start working with, they are already members but we are
going to teach his family how to sign. So we look forward to that. This weekend
we also had the Branch camp out which went pretty well. Not as many people
showed up for it as we thought, but it was still pretty good. It was at a place
called Zions camp which is a church owned camp ground over in Belfair. Pretty
far as well. We had a few non-members show up and were able to teach them a
little bit about the Gospel so that went well. This week my companion and I
made some pies for our Zone leaders, we made a cherry pie and a chocolate Oreo
pie. Both turned out pretty good. We also had a pretty good zone training
meeting this week that we talked a lot about "teaching people, not
lessons", listening to what people say, using inspired questions. It was
awesome and my companion and I both took a lot away from it. Well, I think that
is all for this week. Love you all!
