Elder Sessions and I had a very good week. We worked very hard and it defiantly paid off. We went to ward council and they asked for the missionary report. The ward mission leader gave it and the bishop and his councilors just kept doubting everything we did and all the dates we set for baptism. The ward is very hard to work with. The last missionaries put a very bad taste in the mouth of the members. A member walked up to us and said "hey your the new missionaries?" We said yes and the member said "Hopefully you come to church, cause the last Elders didn't." So that's what we are working with. We hope they will start to trust us a little because members are so important.
The lord has blessed us with quite a few people to teach! We don't have the car this week so that will be fun haha! We will be walking around Des Moines. We aren't in the city though our area covers part of down town.
This week we went on exchanges with the Zone leaders. The zone leaders are Spanish missionaries so they teach only Hispanics! So I was in all of these Spanish lessons and I had no idea what to say. You can still feel the spirit though. Then we had Zone Conference which was very fun! We kinda get to relax as far as relaxing goes for missionaries. We listened to presidents and the assistants train then we watched Ephraim's Rescue. We had meetings from 9 to 4! Super long but they are pretty easy to sit though after a couple you get used to it! Hope all is well!
Also the church has a video out called "he is the gift". Please watch it and share it with your friends. to view it go to Christmas.mormon.org. Its an awesome video. I'm so grateful that God sent his son to atone for are sins. Have a marry Christmas and remember the true meaning of Christmas! Love you all!
