So this week was a crazy week . . . .

Monday we had a  sweet chapel tour with a lady named Brenda and her family.  She is a less active member and her daughter is less active but her boyfriend is not.  The cool thing is that she has commited to come to church every week for the rest of her life. and they all said they would come too! 

Then on tuesday we had to drive up to Eugene and go to a zone leader council.  That pretty much takes up the whole day.  We have the mini van so we are the ones that pick everyone up for that and then it takes a couple hours to get there, but it was good.  We were able to talk about things we need to imporve on in the mission. 

Wednesday we actually had to go to the boonies of our area and go do some service for an older lady in our ward.  She lives out in the middle of no where.  We were way glad that one of the members took us because we would have been lost and then probably eaten by a bear.  Elder "M" had his first baptismal interview on Wednesday too. it was way cool because it was super spiritual for him and the interviewee. . 

Then on Thursday we had a kid named Tommy with us the whole day.  He leaves on his mission in 2 weeks so we take him out with us all the time.  This past thursday we were like "Tommy you should just stay with us the whole day haha", so he did.  The cool thing was that we went and knocked some doors and we knocked for like and hour and a half and only knocked on four doors because 2 people let us in.  We decided we are going to do that more often and just bring him with us all day. 

Oh and have you guys ever heard of "essential oils". HOLY COW, they are cool.  This lady in our ward was telling us all about it and letting us use some. Who knows it could all be mental but they sure do smell awesome haha.  Everyone here is into that kind of stuff, all natural and what not. I dig it.  Pretty much how you could describe everyone here in Medford is they are essential oil loving, have a bunch of guns, laid back, nature hiking people. lol. 

Friday Elder "M" and i taught a zone meeting and it went pretty well. President Young came down with Sister Young and we were able to use them in part of our lesson.  

Thats pretty much our week. Oh wait, there is more ha.  Last night we went to go visit a member and see if there would be a time to come over and share the restoration lesson with her and her kids.  She was like totally; "you should come over Saturday and teach it to my non member boyfriend!"  MIRACLE. pretty crazy how that stuff just happens.

Love you all
