Once Upon a Week there was a man named Elder Clawson,
|Elder Clawson and Elder Roberts during their "Ask Us What We Do" finding activity!|
This week was a good week. Unfortunately I have been taken by an illness that has kept me up coughing every night this last week so I'm incredibly tired.
One super duper interesting thing that we did this week was we tried a street contact approach that I've been wanting to try for a while. Elder Watson and I actually thought about it when we were together in Durres. We wanted to bring out two chairs and just sit in them and have a sign that says "Ask us what we do?" and then we just sit there and wait for people to come up and talk to us. So we decided to try that as a district and so we did. And we had one of the best contacting experiences of my mission. Tons of people were coming up to us and asking us what we were doing. We all got several different numbers from good solid people and most of us have had lessons with someone from that experience. Good day.
Another cool thing that happened this week was that we found this guy named Taki. He's had interactions with the church but he's never met with the missionaries. We asked if he wanted to meet with us because he just randomly showed up at the baptism that we recently had and we didn't know who the heck he was. The first lesson that we had with him was really good. He has two kids, a daughter and a son and they all really like being around us and the church. They are on a baptismal date and they seem excited to prepare for that day. Taki has a lot of really good questions but one thing that really gets his interest is the Spirit. He has tons of really good questions asking what it is, how we can feel it, why is it there, and he is really enjoying the whole learning process which is pleasing to me.

|The sign says, "As Us What We Do!" The actually got a great response that day:)|
I also went on an exchange with my son. Elder Watson. We had a good time and we thoroughly enjoyed each other's presence. We had a good lesson with one of their investigators and we just really enjoyed teaching together again. He;s still a great missionary and a good kid.
|Military base spoils. Talk about a happy kid! Who doesn't love Funyuns?!|
I bought lots of Funyuns, PopTarts, Gatorade, Soda, Hot Pockets, Arizon Watermelon Juice, and some other stuff and we are living off of that now.
That's about it for this week. I love you guys and I hope you are all safe in Lake Powell. Have fun with EXEC Emma!
I'm glad you are starting to feel a little more relaxed now that summer is over. It's crazy to think that it's over because it kinda just barely started. I saw the deer in the garden pic. Hopefully the new dog can take care of that. Just make sure he lives for a bit. Have fun in the lake! Go skiing for me. I love you so much and thanks a ton for updating the blog!
