This week was full of service and new missionaries! Since transfers were this week, we got two new missionaries in our ward. One of them is straight out of the MTC. Her name is Sister Lewis and she's from Bountiful! The new Elder has been out about 3 months, and his name is Elder Mitchell. He's from New York. Taking into account the new missionaries, our ward now has 4 missionaries from Davis County (Davis High, Viewmont, Bountiful, and Woods Cross,) one 1 missionary from Orem, Utah, and 1 from New York.
This week we decided to go out a look for some places that we could do service for! We found an ecological center, which is basically just one big garden with all sorts of stuff! It's completely volunteer run, and we think it will be a great place to do service :) We went back on Saturday to follow up with service hours, and they asked if we had just a minute to help them lift something! Well, obviously we helped, and one thing led to another, and we ended up staying for 5 hours and building an archway/gate! It was sooo much fun. We were working with a retired carpenter who had volunteered to build it for the garden. He instructed us and taught us how to do things, and we built the whole thing from the foundation up, completely from scratch! I'll attach a picture. We decided that it was a bigger project than a lot of Eagle Projects. Haha
We have been seeing major progress with our main investigator this week. Things are going really well, and we are loving it here in Sonoma. Last Monday, to say goodbye to the missionaries leaving, we went on a hike! I'll attach a few pictures of that too. This morning, since it's Spring break, we came and played basketball with all of the young men in the ward! It was a ton of fun!
Well, that's about it for this week! Love you all! The church is true!
