Another Busy Week 8/12/13

Well it was another great week here in Chesterfield VA! We met much less crazy people this week, so that was good haha. Monday we went Golfing at a course here in the area, which was awesome! I've gotten to Golf a ton on my mission haha. That just proves that the inspires where we serve! haha. We have had some great sucess with those we've been teaching this past week as well. We met with Sherry and her kids a few times and they are still as excited as can be for their baptism on the 24th. We can't wait! The whole ward here is pumped as well haha. They are so solid! She payed her tithing for the first time last Sunday (without anyone asking her to) and this week she got a surprise email saying that someone had paid her mortgage payment on her home for August, which she really needed! Direct blessing from making the sacrifice to pay her tithing! It reminds me of the story of the Widow's mite in Mark 12:41-44. We also got to help another guy that we are teaching with some service. His name is Tim and he lives on his Uncle's farm. Tim is also super solid haha he is preparing to be baptized on the 31st. So he is taking care of the farm while his uncle is away, well the week before last we had a little bit of some wind and rain come through and give the last little push to a really tall big tree behing their barn, so it came down and wrecked the fence for the goat pen as well as smashed in the roof on their barn. So we went over and helped him do some repairs on the fence and cover up the barn with a tarp, a huge tarp haha it was 60 ft by 40 ft. Lots bigger than we needed but it did the job just fine haha. He has to wait for the insurance company to come take a look at the barn before they can do any work on it but we atleast needed to get it covered before the rain came and weakened the walls that were bowing out even more, so we were glad to be able to help, it was quite a bit of fun haha his goats are way cool. Well really that's the big updates for the week haha. We got a ton of good stuff done but not too many crazy stories to go along with it. Which is sometimes good sometimes bad haha. My mission is coming to a close fast though!! Way too fast. So we are doing all we can to make sure I finish out with an extra push haha and man is it wearing me out! Gotta love it! Well I hope everyone has had a great week wherever you are! I love and miss you all lots! More of an update next week!
