Monica Ward Week 1 July 27th, 2015

Alright before I start off with how the week went I want to talk about something way cool. So I'm sure a lot of you have seen Meet the Mormons. Well do you know the humanitarian from Nepal? There is this Elder in our zone who is from Nepal fairly new missionary. The humanitarian baptized this elder 3 years ago. He also served in the branch presidency with the humanitarian. He is so funny. Now to the week. This week went well. We had transfer meeting on Tuesday. We left really early Tuesday morning. It was about a 2 hour drive to Bakersfield. Since 27 missionaries were going home the meeting lasted a while because they all bore there testimonies. Once we completed that we had some zone errands to run. We also had splits that night. A ton of people from the ward show up for it and then after we go get tacos at a taco truck. For the rest of the week we had opportunities for service. We helped one ward member make 720 tamales. It took a while for just the three of us to finish it but they were good. He was making them to raise money to repair a roof at a homeless shelter. We also helped build rooms and a roof inside of this giant shed this member had. We were able to pick up one new investigator and teach a member present. This week was a little slow because we had to go around and meet a bunch of the members. We have so many leadership meetings coming up which should be fun. Hope you all are having a stellar summer.

​Tamales for days.
