This past week was a pretty good one! With school starting, there are a lot more people in town, and a lot more people out walking around. So that is good. This week especially we will have lots of people to talk to with opening home game of the season on Thursday, which I am excited about. I am enjoying being on a campus at the start of football season, it is awesome!
We had a very good week, ups and downs, but most of the week it was good, and spiritual. I had the oppurtunity to speak in sacrament meeting again yesterday. My talk was based on Quentin L. Cook's talk that he gave in the last General Conference, "We Follow Jesus Christ." It is a good talk. And I surprisingly wasn't that nervous...just super sun burned :) (mom's addition - he got the sunburn at football game)...We also taught the FHE lesson last night at YSA at the Kailiponi's, they are Hawaiian, and they made some AMAZING food. The mom gave a talk and whenever one of them gives a talk they always start off with ALOHA!, I thought it was awesome. We also sang hymns to the ukulele, all in all it was fun.
We were able to get a hold of Tim on Saturday. He is doing well. He just got out of the hospital and had surgery on his arm that he has been waiting to have for a while. We popped in on him on Saturday evening, and he is doing well, still recovering but doing good.
We still haven't been able to get a hold of Kennedy this past week (the RB for MTSU). I am sure with school starting up this week and the first home game of the season, he is going to be VERY busy. I can't believe that football has already started, crazy :).
And I can't believe that August is gone already, and September is here, guess I just have to make the best of what time I have left.
This past weekend we did a lot of service for one of our part member families. The Dodson family. The dad is a returning from inactivity. The son is 9 years old, his name is Daygon, and he wants to be baptized on Sept. 11th. His dad is still striving to work on baptizing his son. Aaron (the dad's name) does so much for us, he helps us out a lot, or he has helped us out alot, and I think it's because we help him out a lot. We mowed is lawn on Friday and Saturday we went and watched his son play football...It was good to watch football again, even though it was little kid football it was still fun. They got DESTROYED, sadly, 47-0. The team they played are the National Champions of the league, they go around playing teams in diff. states. Anywho, after emailing today, we are gonna finish up his yard, and do some other things to help him out...anything to make his life easier.
Well this week should be a good week :). Hopefully everyone will be reached, teached and baptized. We have a "Special MTG" here in M'Boro with President and the APs so it should be good.
Well hope everyone has a good/fantastic/superb/amazing week :)
