Kind of a crazy week for us!

We were able to finish up all of our exchanges this past week so it's been good to finally be serving back with Elder Green haha. We went on a mission Temple trip again this past week which is always a great time! Our district leader challenged everyone to take a name of one of our ancestors to the temple so I found one and was able to do the work for them! It was a cool experience to take someone like that. It made going to the temple that much greater. I saw a lot of old mission friends as well. It's fun being in the Temple with your friends.

So, the Rogers ward gave a Marshallese family the calling of doing a family home evening group with the rest of the Islanders. They do it on Saturday nights since that's usually their day off. They invited us over to help out for the first one and we showed up and found out that it was actually a girls birthday. They quickly transformed the Family Home Evening into a birthday party/Spiritual thought haha. Everyone there was so grateful to have us there. We had a couple of people translating for us. They asked us to stand and speak to them part way through so we taught them all in simple English and invited them all to church. It was really neat. We got a couple of new investigators out of it and a lot of respect from the Islanders. The Marshallese know how to throw good Birthday parties!

Everything has been going swell here. Loving the work that I'm apart of and Rogers is a good place to be. We are preparing for transfers coming up next week so it's going to be next Wednesday when I email again. Love ya!
