Flower Mound Week 28 February 20, 2017 Week Eighty-five

Hey y'all!

This week was definitely one of the stranger ones I've had on my mission. Early on in the week we were helping a member of our congregation move, and then we went immediately to our dinner. While eating, we discovered that our phone had gone missing! We retraced our steps, but our phone was nowhere to be found. We reasoned that it was either in this member's now empty home or sitting in a moving box in his home in Denton, which is in an entirely different Stake! Missionary work now became much more difficult, as in order to confirm all of our appointments we had to knock on the door of every person we were going to teach the day before we did it. We had no idea if anybody was trying to reach out to us, we couldn't plan super well, and we were terrified by the prospect of calling and collecting numbers without any means to do so. Needless to say, there was much praying this week. Then, wouldn't you know, after having exhausted every possible resource, a member of our congregation knocked on our door ten minutes before we needed to call for numbers to give us our phone! He had heard of our plight, tracked down the man who might have our phone, and they searched through all their boxes to finally find it.

Other than that, there's not a whole much to report about this week. One of our investigators died while we had lost our phone, and five people ended up dropping us, but we were still able to find a fair amount of success. We didn't have a lesson with Ingrid and Ryan, but we have one tonight. Hopefully it will go well!

Hope y'all have a great week!
