It has been an interesting week. We got some good work done even though most of our appointments fell through.
We helped a part member family put on a new metal roof this week. We helped him tear off the old one last week, and then we helped him nail in the new one. We are not totally done, only got half of it done, but it is ready for the rain that is coming later this week. Putting on a new roof is something I didn't expect to do on my mission but it is fun anyway. I don't know when we will help him get the other half done. I smashed my thumb a couple of times with the hammer, but luckily it was only hard enough to hurt but nothing more.
We had a lesson with a someone who requested a Bible, and she is willing to listen to us. We are not able to visit her this coming week, but we are hoping that we will be able to visit her early the following week. She accepted the doctrines that we were teaching. She seems really willing to learn more about the gospel. We couldn't teach her the first time we meet her, but we did give her a Book of Mormon. She was reading it already before we were able to sit down with her and talk about the restoration.
President Anderson sat in on our companion study on Wednesday. I don't know what he intended to do, but it really turned into him training us a little bit instead of a companion study. I am not sure why he wanted to come, but he told us was interesting. He wants the whole mission to better use the email that we have as a companion to keep in touch with people that we are teaching and with the ward members.
Everyone, wish my companion, Elder Crowther, a happy birthday. It is going to be his birthday this coming Sunday, March 6.
