So on Tuesday we had a zone training meeting and learned that President Cooper has decided to set a few boundaries for us after loosening the reins. We now need to run 1 mile every day for our exercise. So far it has been really good, but it is hard to measure on the days that we don't use the gym. We also did some service unpacking for a handicapped woman who is moving in. The Relief Society president referred us to her. Hudson is very different. The members are more missionary focused and the people are more low-income and willing to listen more. We literally can't walk down the hall of the church without somebody stopping us to tell us to visit someone they know, usually a less active member.
We had interviews on Wednesday with President and Sister Cooper. It is always great to talk to them. We also had missionary coordination and it was so weird to have 4 sets of missionaries there. The other missionaries told us we could teach a few people they had been teaching. Our ward mission leader is pretty great, too. Also, yesterday the elders called us and asked if we wanted to teach one of their investigators because she is a young woman and they thought it would be better for her. So we have our first investigator!
Otherwise, we met a few less active members, and a lot of them are recent converts, which is really sad. A lot of them can't come because they need a ride. We taught Cassie who is really nice and has been a member for almost a year now, but hasn't been to church in awhile.
So we move out on Friday and are going to live with the Palm Harbor sisters until the 22nd when we finally get to move into our new apartment. It will be crazy. A lot of our time this week has already been spent packing and cleaning and we still have a lot to do. But I know it will all work out. "Now when our hearts were depressed, and we were about to turn back, behold, the Lord comforted us, and said: Go amongst thy brethren, the Lamanites, and bear with patience thine afflictions, and I will give unto you success." -Alma 26:27
I hope you all have a great week and Valentine's Day!
We went to Outback today! Yummm 😊
