work, work, work and then killing a missionary.....

So this week wasn't very eventful to be honest. At least in the sense that we did missionary work. Tuesday we saw one investigator, David, who is a double amputee on his legs that Elder Breckenridge taught when he was first here. He is really cool. He has a pretty hard life, with no legs and all, but he is really smart and attentive. After that we were on our way to a funeral when one of our recent converts called needing help for an emergency moveout. apparently he had some problems with the neighbors, and wanted to get out as soon as possible. That took the rest of our afternoon. Wednesday was zone meeting, and the first one I have actually needed to drive to. In conway our zone met at our building, but in my new zone the center is about 1.5 hours away. It was good though, I got to see some people I have never met before. That night, we went out with the young men. Our partner was Corey, who is about 6 foot a lot, and he barely fit in our car. We saw one family, Gregorio & Carina, and watched a church video, Together Forever, with them. (If you haven't watched it before, I'd recommend it. A bit 80s, but good message.) Thursday we saw david again, then went and had lunch at the Rich's house before going to rake leaves for a family who just had a baby. I have never actually raked leaves before (never been a need) so that was aactually pretty fun! It took a while, though. We didn't have time to finish, because we had an appointment at 6:30 with Don. He is all set to be baptized this coming Saturday at 5 pm (if any of y'all want to come :P) and he's very ready for it! He is inviting the members of his biker church to attend, even though he's gotten a rather cold reception. 
Friday we helped out Bro. Rougeau at the college again, and we finished gutting out an old lab to make an office. I found out that I am not very good at tearing things out. It's just not my thing, I guess. 
Saturday was another P-day for us! For departing missionaries, they get their last satruday to say goodbye, ship stuff home, pack, etc. So basically we relaxed all day while elder Breckenridge did stuff. 
Sunday, me and elder Diaz were in a special musical number in church. We did a four part men's quartet of "I Wonder as I Wander" (one of my new favorites, btw) and it went really well, considering we had about 2 hours of practice.
And also today, we said goodbye to elder Breckenridge, who hitched a ride to little rock with a former missionary from here, Elder Robles, this morning. That makes 3 companions I have "killed" out of 5. It's fun. :P

Aaaannnd that's my week! Hopefully this week we get our Ipads at zone conference, that'll be AWESOME!
