|I've had a full plate lately... really!|
It's interesting to find at the end of a week how time can go by so fast, yet last Tuesday feels like a month ago. I'm not really sure how to describe it, but I would say it is due to being anxiously engaged in a great cause :)
This last week was packed with traveling to New Hampshire for an all-day Zone Leader Council, an exchange with the Ellsworth Elders, District Meetings, more people/appointments than we can handle, moving tons of furniture, eating delicious Ronnie's Libs! (Lonnie Wilcox's Famous Ribs) (Thanks Wilcox family! we love you!), transfer calls, and a Sunday that left us fulfilled :) ...ya, we've had a lot on our plates this week, and honestly, the only full day on proselyting that we got was Saturday, and that was a beautiful day, haha. We've been focussing a lot on plans and ideas for how to start off this next transfer the right way, and how to help us and the Zone find the most success. We have a lot of plans for how to help uplift the Zone, and as we looked at our area we found many things we wanted to change, update, and improve - one of which was our furniture.
This last transfer, we started serving at the Habitat for Humanity - a place that accepts, refurbishes, and sells donated furniture and building materials; they then use the money to build homes for
less-forunate families. Everytime we are there we clean up furniture to put out on the main floor - all the while talking to people we work with and trying to strike up a gospel conversation with them (last
week we got to teach a young woman about most of the Plan of Salvation and then later gave her a Book of Mormon!). The managers there a hold us in high esteem as being the hardest workers they have (seed planted!); also, they gave us incredible discounts on two desks!
|Don't play with your food, Dusty.|
We've got a some solid plans for the Zone, and a new Zone Leader coming to town. So if you're like me and thought things here were tough and busy - buckle up, cause it's about to get crazy. It's the start of a new era - the work in the Brewer Area and Bangor Zone is about the explode!
