Del City, Oklahoma- Week 83

This was a very tiring, but great week! On Tuesday we had a STM(specialized training meeting) so that took up that morning, we saw some of the less actives that we are working with, they are doing great, they love coming to church and now trying to share the gospel with the rest of their family. I finally got my suits dry cleaned! We found a place close to us that does a pretty good job for cheap too! And we got them back the next day, so I'm glad I finally got that done. On Wednesday, we did service at the food pantry, it's really fun helping out there. On Thursday, the zone leaders came over and did weekly planning with us, and then after we went on exchanges, I went with Elder Moe to his area, and Elder Barton stayed with Elder Thomas. Exchanges went well, we were able to see some miracles, so that was awesome! Exchanges are the best times to have miracles in the area :) On Friday, there was a lot of people at district meeting, because we had us, the sisters, and Chocktaw elders there as usual, but because of exchanges, the zone leaders were there, and also the STL's were there as well, so lots of people, but district meeting went well, it always goes better when you have more people participating. Then on Friday night, we went to the OKC 3rd elder's house so we would be closer to the buses that were picking us up on Saturday, so I'm glad that we were able to stay there with them, it saved us 45 min of travel and that they buses were leaving at 5:30, so we got up early that morning and off to the buses, it was about a 2 hour drive to Tulsa, we slept most of the way there. The Mission Conference was awesome, and there was our mission there, and also the Bentenvill, Arkansas mission there as well. So there was a lot of people! When Elder Christofferson and President Robbins walked in to the room, you could feel the spirit in that room so much more, they gave great talks! I made sure to take lots of notes, and what was really cool, is that before the conference started, Elder Christofferson asked all of us to come up to the front so that he could shake our hands:) and he was really funny as well! At one point we all stood up to stretch a little, and he started doing head, shoulders, knees, and toes, we were all laughing at that! That night we had a lesson with the McCunes, they are doing great! And Kiley is still Excited about getting baptized on March 5!
