Our First Two Weeks, and our Zone Meeting, Pauls Valley, OK - November 10, 2014
After getting settled in our home, meeting with the Bishop, making numerous trips to Wal-Mart, going on appointments with the Elders and Sisters, driving them several places because their mileage was used up (end of the month), and eating dinner at member's homes, we felt pretty good our first week as missionaries in Ada.
Our second week was spent visiting members who do not usually come out to church and inviting them to attend, visiting newly baptized members and single members of the Ward, and accompanying the Sisters on missionary discussions. Some days we find many people at home and some days we do not get to see many people. But we realize that in this Gospel, the focus is on the individual and it just takes time to get to visit them and get to know them. We have experienced a great week and have met some wonderful people with loving hearts!
Elders & Sisters in our Zone - Elder Reeder is far right. We met Elder & Sister Reeder who are serving in Pauls Valley. We spent time with them, went to dinner, and enjoyed good conversation.
Ada Elders & Sisters: Elder Gunderson, Fuller, Owen, Garner, & Lemmert
