Since the branch is so small most of the families will feed us just about twice a week. It's cool because we get to know the families a little more. However it would be nice to get to know more families and not feel like a burden on the families that feed us frequently.
Elder Steadman and I have been developing a plan to improve our use of the finding tools we have over this transfer. At the beginning of our planners we have a list of activities that we can use to find people. Some examples being; Hold a fireside, Publish an article in the newspaper or organize a bible study class. We are excited to try a bunch of different finding activities and find those that are being prepared. We will see how they go and keep you updated on the outcomes. A lot of them are also in preach my gospel under finding if you want to look through them.
This week we also had zone training meeting over in Yakima (almost and hour drive from Sunnyside). The training was all centered around becoming a representative of Jesus Christ rather than just a messenger. People are always watching us and we want them to see us as representatives of Christ and not just the messengers of his gospel.
This upcoming week we have the opportunity to hear from Daniel L. Johnson of the 70. He is going to be speaking to all the Spanish missionaries on Thursday and we will have a normal southern zone conference on Friday. It is going to be a great experience as we learn how we can better work with those in our area. At the Spanish conference he is going to teach us how we can work to overcome the challenges that come with working with the Spanish culture. I'm excited to see what great things we can learn from him.
I'm not sure what exactly everyone around here does during the summer but I'm sure I'll find out soon enough. Yes it is getting hot. But it's not humid so I think I'll make it through. I hope it hasn't gotten too hot back home. Enjoy the summer break.
