Last Day of Deer Hunting Season

January 31, 2011

It has been a weird week. We have still been sick all week and can't seem to get better. I am so over being sick and miserable. I am doing a lot better though. I still have a cough that I can't kick, and my throat is still sore. I am much better though. We did get meds from the doctor, but they made me worse then I got better. Still feel the same as when I went to the doctor so that really didn't help. We had zone conference this week, which means we drive down to Mobile, AL the night before (sleep at a member's who is super cool), spend the whole day in Mobile the next day, and get home in the evening that day. We were still pretty sick, so the trip kicked our trash. I am looking forward to next month; we have someone from the quorum of seventies coming to see us so that will be really good.

We had some good things happen this week. We have been working a lot with, sister J. She recently got married back in November. Her husband is not a member and has been coming to church with her every other week when he doesn't have work. He really enjoys it and seems really interested. Sister J has been doing really well with coming back to church. She has been in church the last 3 weeks. Also, I think having her husband come to church with her has really helped as well, because going to church alone can be a struggle for a lot of people. We are hoping to catch up with them this week to have a lesson. He’s kind of hard to catch because he works a lot. Also, we are trying to get a gospel principal’s class set up. Since our branch is so small we only have one Sunday school class for the adults it is hard to follow for nonmembers or less actives that need to go back to the basics. Also, we have been waiting all month to speak in sacrament meeting and finally got to speak on Sunday. We have been feeling like we need to talk about forgiving each other, and loving each other. Sister Hernandez and I were both kind of nervous about it. I focused my talk on forgiveness. I have never been so nervous to give a talk until that one. It went well. Sister Hernandez focused on repentance. The two combine went well together. Also, the branch presidency spoke to on forgiveness for their 5th Sunday topic. It was really good. I think the branch members felt it.

Deer hunting season ends more people will be freed up and we have about a month or month and a half before turkey season. All that means is people are WAY more available then they have been so that will be really good. Kind of funny that I know that info, but you got to in this part of the country.

Hope ya'll are well!
