Week 15: We are merely here to assist the members in THEIR missionary work.

Elder Jacobs came to Chamberlain and is the new District Leader.  We made some tuna casserole with chips, tuna helper, and cheese. It was great, but not as good as mom's.
We started home teaching back up with President Barth directing us.  We invited the Tottons and Sister Kindell to watch the Mormon message by President Hinckley, "Lessons I learned as a young boy." We are focusing on less active members this week as we try to help them return to the fold of God.
We had district conference Saturday in Pierre and stayed the night at the Saunders home. They are a senior CES missionary couple. It was nice being with other missionaries and discussing basic things anywhere from White water Rafting to the new scripture mastery verses in seminary.
On the way back from Pierre, we realized we had forgotten to get gas on Saturday and we couldn't on Sunday. It was a time where we prayed for help. We got back with plenty of gas to spare. I know the Lord has blessed us for helping to serve Him even though it was our fault for forgetting to fuel up.
I learned that transfers are interesting because Elder Jacobs doesn't know this area, but is the senior companion because he's a district leader which made it interesting to adjust to since I didn't really know the schedule for a district leader. It's been a great learning experience and has allowed me to gain new perspectives on what missionary work really is.
All members are missionaries. We are Full time set apart missionaries, but we are only part time in this area. The full, full time missionaries are the members who fellowship others, find others, and also help others receive the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are merely here to assist the members in THEIR missionary work. It's been a great week.
With great Love,
Elder Davis
