Week 64: Last week we went to our church building and played a game of lightning that lasted 2 1/2 hours

P-days here in Casper are very fun. We have so many missionaries here that we can play basketball games such as lightning and I even learned how to play chair soccer which was really fun. After I emailed last week we went to our church building and played a game of lightning that lasted 2 1/2 hours because it was the revenge type where if the person who got you out gets out, you come back in. So it took forever and we finally had to agree that everyone came back in and only got one life this time so when they were out they were out. It sped things up pretty quickly, but by then we were all exhausted.

Here is a brief description of some of the people we are teaching.
JD: he is a less active member who is blind. He likes having us over and discussing religious principles and sharing his love of dogs with us. (He remembers people by the dog they have).
Jane: Less Active lady who is starting to get back into the swing of things and is trying.
Lori W: A new investigator that we found tracting. She met with us once, felt the spirit and agreed to be baptized.
Jackie: A lady we ran into outside her house while she was pulling weeds. We gave her a Book of Mormon and she was very excited to read from it. Coincidentally she also had finished the last book she had read so there was nothing holding her back.
The Reardon Family: We taught them the Plan of Salvation and the spirit was very strong. They are enjoying meeting with us.
Matthew: he is looking for another religion that he can take his family to. We gave him a family proclamation to emphasize how our church is very family oriented. We plan on seeing him again tonight.
We also met the Rummell Family. They are less active only because a medical condition keeps them from going to church. So we visit them. He has a lot of really interesting stories and has found a lot of geological artifacts that he has in his basement "museum" that he showed us the last time we went over there.
It also is great because we get fed every night by the members here. This gives us an opportunity not only to be fed, but to strengthen the families that we end up seeing as a result of dinner. It is a great area. We share the area with another set of Elders so there are 4 elders in the Casper 8th ward. On one of the dinners we met the Jones family who has family in Blackfoot. We also met the Rentz family. Apparently they are related to Elder Lete and they thought it was quite the small world that I had been companions with him last.
The highlight in tracting this week was when Elder Newman pressed a doorbell and at the exact same time the garage door opened scaring us both. We thought we had accidently opened the door, but it was a lady who came out heading for work.
Sunday was amazing. The priesthood group in the ward is bigger than the entire branch in Marshall. We had many great lessons.  There was a beautiful musical number and we also had the opportunity to work with the Ward leaders and coordinate the work. Dinner was great as well. We were at the Postal Family's and afterwards for desert we made caramel apples.
It's been a great week. I love you all.
With love,
Elder Davis
