I Just Need to Do It
was planning day. This was one of our rougher days. Planning can be so hard sometimes when people aren't knowing their schedules and you are just tired and having a hard enough time focusing. We did it, though, and immediately after planning headed to a ward member's house, Sister Eklund, for her 70th birthday party. When we got there the apartment was FULL of old people and most of them were members so we really had no idea what we were doing there or why they really wanted us there. So we did what missionaries do best. We went into the kitchen and started eating food. You will never believe it. The couple in the kitchen just happened to be some of the only non-members there! So we got to have a really good conversation with them. Miracles! We then had an appointment with a member whose son we have been teaching to prepare him for baptism. We had been traveling by Metro for about 10 minutes when Sister Dixon turned to me and asked, "Wait, where are we going?" Haha, oh Sister Dixon! I love her. Mac came with us so that was good. We got to teach him about the temple. Oh my goodness. Mac is really the humblest person I have ever met. He really wants to go to the temple but doesn't want to ask the bishop for a recommend because he doesn't want it to look like he has an agenda for why he got baptized, haha. So we had to explain how happy the bishop would be if he asked to be able to go to the temple. But thankfully Bishop ended up talking to us and is going to talk to Mac about getting the priesthood and a temple recommend so it will all work out. :)
