Monday we just played basketball and tried to see a few people with no success.
Tuesday we went and taught the Filson's and had an awesome lesson. The spirit was so strong and spoke to their hearts. You could see it in their eyes. It's wonderful to see a change in them :)
Wednesday we went and taught Lorelei and Greg! Lorelei is gonna get baptized! :D She is such an awesome little girl and there is somethin' special about her. Greg is gettin' closer. :) We also taught Isaac and Aislyn about tithing. We do short lessons with them so we can keep their attention long enough. hahaha Their dad is goin' on a huntin' trip at the end of the month and growin' a sick beard! hahaha
Thursday we taught the Filson's again and the spirit was so strong again. They are doing everything we ask them to and they are really feeling the spirit! It is great to see!
Friday we went and said goodbye to David Wilcox. He left that night for his mission to Colombia, South America! He is gonna be an awesome missionary and i'll miss havin' him around! He's a great example to his younger siblings!
Saturday we helped Erik Wilcox with his Eagle Scout Project again. He is almost done and it looks pretty dang good! It's funny. Erik and Tyler, 2 young men in the ward always try to copy my accent hahahaha. They work together and when they pass each other they stop and say "Hi, my name is Elder Bowes!" hahaha I know i'm loved in this ward! It's pretty funny to me cause they aren't very good at copyin my accent.
Sunday seemed to take a long time. I think it's cause we had an early supper at 3 in the afternoon. It's all good though. We are seein' a lot of success now and our hard work is payin' off! Don't try to do only big things, it's the smallest things that mean the most. The Lord works through small means to bring to pass great things. Love yall!
