This week went well. We taught some good lessons and there is a lady that is going to be baptized this Saturday.
This week had a lot of service though. It seems that in Saint Johns everyone owns cows, which is great for us because people always need help with their cows.
This week we helped one of our bishops feed his cows. His property is really cool. Some of the rocks had carvings on them from the native tribes that used to inhabit the area.
On another day, we got a call pretty early asking for help to get some calves out of an irrigation ditch. There were 4 of them that had been stuck there for a day or so. The first two we got on either side of and they ran right out. The other two we had to push and lift to get them out. They were smaller and weaker. It was pretty fun.
In the near future we will be helping with branding another person’s cows.
We helped a member clean out his storage units last week. When we found where he kept his bullet proof vests he let us each take one. So now I have a bulletproof vest.
Also this week, we had the opportunity to give a woman a blessing. She was going down to the valley and checking into a rehab. She's a real sweet lady and the blessing we gave her brought her to tears. She has so much support from her family. It always nice to see that kind of love.
Elder Kirk included a couple of pictures holding horned lizards and a snake...you can tell that he is my son, love it! J
I hope you all have a great week.
