I hope you all had a wonderful week!
We have been seeing a lot of great things here. Elder Detlor and I
have been just running! It is pretty nice to always have
something to do!
We went on two exchanges this week! Which was pretty great! One of the
exchanges we found and taught about five lessons to some pretty cool
people. For example, one guy we met on the street wasn't very interested at first but talked to us and told us that three of his family members had
passed away. We brought up the "Plan of Salvation" and told him how it
answers the questions as to where we came from, why we are here, and
where we are going. He was like, "you know I have really been
thinking a lot about that! I would like to know the answers." We
gave him a Book of Mormon and set up a return appointment! I am
excited to see him and grateful to have the knowledge of the plan of
Our second exchange we had 4 of our lessons cancel but sometimes you
win some and sometimes you lose some! :) However, on that exchange we went and met with Chris again, and we brought President Francis with us to the
lesson. It was so good! Chris had so many deep questions
and I had no idea how to answer them but president was just awesome
and the spirit was so strong!
On Sunday we had Stake conference and they had all the missionaries in
the Rochester stake be the choir-- there were 52 of us!
At the very beginning we sang "Called to Serve" as we marched in :(
that was kind of a train wreck but it was the thought that counted!) The best part was that Chris came to church! It was great!
Sorry this is a short on but we are seeing lots of wonderful things
here in Rochester!
I love you all so much and hope you have a great week!
