Best. Weekend. Ever.

Hey hey hey everyone! It was another fantastic week! Obviously with General Conference it's like a midnight movie premiere for us missionaries! But we'll get to that later.
Monday night we had Family Home Evening with the O. family. I was in charge of the lesson, and I did the "Easter Egg" lesson, with things inside each egg to tell the Easter story. They loved it. Also, I creamed their son in chess.  
Tuesday we were basically down to no miles whatsoever, so we drove just far enough to be able to drive home. Then we walked. And walked. And walked. We went to english classes, but it was pretty slow. I don't know why, but I guess, we scare off some people I guess :P Anyhoo then we went and walked and talked to some more people, and then went to the S's house to have dinner and a lesson on the Word of Wisdom with S. It went super well, he's basically already living it, he just has a reason now. 

Wednesday was zone meeting in searcy. We got a ride with Sister R. (honestly one of the nicest people on the planet) and it was pretty good. I was voluntold to instruct for a bit on finding people to teach, which is the foundation for all the work we do in the day. It went eh, since they told me about it the night before and we didn't really have study time. But I got it done, and hopefully people got stuff out of it. 

Thursday we were GOING to do a booth at the college, but apparently our rent ran out because when we got there we didn't have a booth and it was super awkward because another church had one there. Soooo we left to go to English class instead. And people were actually there! We had a good time, and got to settle once and for all the fact that Mormons actually DO drink soda. (they asked and I got up and bought a Diet coke from the vending machine. It was pretty funny.) Then we had a lesson with S. His girlfriend has been stealing his paychecks and spending them all, because she doesn't want him to move out. He's a little stressed about it, but he handled it so well you couldn't tell. He is onto her now though, and is hiding money. We hope everything works out. Then we played some basketball with the Ms, Ms and their friends. Elder Holden got a huge blister from it, but we all had fun!

Friday we drove all over to try and get people to General Conference! We saw The Ms and made sure they would turn it on, as well as the Bs. The daughter's birthday was that weekend though, so they said chances were slim. :/ Then we got Taco Bell, because Elder Holden hadn't had it in 6 months since it wasn't in Pocahontas. :P

Saturday and Sunday were basically the same, so CONFERENCE TIME!!!! It was incredible. I loved Saturday, it focused a lot on marriage, family, and how they need to be in order to raise up children who will stay strong in the gospel. I really liked Sister Burton's, Elder Oaks', Bednar's, and Uchtdorf's talks on Saturday. Sunday, I would REALLY recommend listening to Jeffrey R. Holland's talk, "Where Justice, Love and Mercy Meet." It's a great testimony of the Savior and how He helps us. Also, Uchtdorf gave a wonderful talk on the Grace of God. 

Well, that's about all for this week! Transfers are here, and Holden will be leaving. I'll let y'all know who I get! I love you all! bye!
