This past week we went on exchanges with all the Elders in the zone starting. was just a day exchange, meaning we didn't spend the night. The reason being that we had our mission temple trip and we had to leave early in the morning to get to the temple. The exchange went really well. Elder Jacobson came with me to my area. He's a solid missionary and a great guy. We had some super good conversations with each other throughout the day about the spirit and joy and motivation in missionary work. We were able to feel the spirit as we talked with each other and build each other up. We knocked most of the day and no one wanted to talk to us, except for the last door. It's interesting how much that happens. You'll go all throughout the day and no one will answer or no one will talk, until the last person. It was a faith building experience, as everyday on the mission should be.
The temple trip was awesome! It's weird to think that will be my last one with the whole english side of the mission. I get to go at least two more times before I go home, since my birthday is in August and I get to go with the departing missionaries in August.
We went on exchangeswith Elder Anderson. He came to my area. I tried to focus the exhcnage on the same things I talked about with Elder Jacobson and it went really well. Elder Anderson is great!
We also taught Denis this week. We went over the Family Proclamation with her and she agreed with it for the most part, but she had some objections. Her main concern right now is getting her to pray. She hasn't prayed about any of what we've taught and it is very evident. She got emotional when we talked to her about prayer, because she says that she just can't and she doesn't know why. She did come to church this week though! She wanted to come to Priesthood with us to see what it was like. We took her to High Priests to help her see that Relief Society is so much better, but it didn't work. She liked High Priest's better than relief society! She said she'd give relief society another shot though next week.
Other than that, everything is great!
Love you all!
