Study, Study, Study... and Service

This week was pretty average. Just the normal missionary stuff. Waking up at 6:30 and "working out" and then eat some nice breakfast (usually cereal but when i am not lazy ill cook me up some scrambled eggs). Next we hop into some personal study for a hour! i have been going through the Book of Mormon and its nice! I am at Alma 20 i believe and i started a little before the beginning of this month so i am going fast but i feel as i have m new system for marking i am getting a lot out of it. After we have a hour of companionship study and head out the door usually. So this week was basically that but with a lack of lessons than a normal week. But it was still good. We went on exchanges with the Zone Leaders and i got to drive for a full day for the first time!! It was nice!!! Other than that we have/had two kids in the ward leavng on Mission. One (Mckay Adam) is going to cape town and he left to the JoBurg MTC on Thursday. The next leaves tomorrow (Aiden Omdahl) who is going to the Washington D.C. Spanish speaking mission. he is going to the MTC in Mexico. He is actually from the states so he is excited to serve in the Capital. Anyways this weekend sucked... On Friday we had Zone Conference and in that we had a good discussion until one of the missionaries started to say Apostate things so of course you guys knowing me told him he was wrong! Which he definitely was so that is good! I argued my point good and i walked away victorious. He is only 14 months out on mission as well! After that fun time we had no lesson the rest of that day. Same with Saturday. But on Saturday after rugby we went and did a service project with a group called Stop Hunger Now. It was cool we packaged a lot of meals for people. In fact it was over 2000. So that was fun but yeah like I said we had no success the rest of the day. Sunday the ward got split so that is kind of crappy for the ward. But very crappy for us as missionaries cause we have to work with two ward counsels as well as go to 5 hours of church....... YAY!!!.... It will be a good experience though! we will see how it goes! That is about it though so I hope everyone has a great week!

Love, Elder Cowan
