Zone Conference, Bielefeld, Herford, and Service Projects

May 30, 2016

   I cannot believe that school is already out for the year! That is ridiculous! It never went by that fast when I was going to high school, but I am doing something a lot better know so that is probably why it is going by a lot faster and more enjoyable.  Thanks for the list of seniors and where they are going, and you can tell C. & D. that I thank them as well. Looks like a lot of them will be heading out to BYU Idaho. It will be cool to see a few of them at school.

   It was transfer day last Wednesday but I’m not moving for transfers and I am staying in Minden with my current companion.

   For P-day last week, we went to Bielefeld.  We saw the city and I got a few more short sleeve shirts and then went to a city called Herford and bought some really good chocolate from a chocolate factory.

   For service this week we didn't help in the garden but we are helping a member with their future apartment and getting it ready for new wiring and piping and everything.

   Yesterday at our eating appointment we got hot dogs which were really good but we ate a lot of food and we do not really want to eat hot dogs for a while now.

   The one appointment fell out and the other one went good and he said he wanted to be baptized! but the actually baptismal date will come a little latter.

   This past week we had Zone Conference, it was really good, but we did not hear anything about the new missionary dress code at all (the sunglasses and hats new rule) so I think our mission will probably not change our rules. In our mission we do not really need them, at least not like they do in South America or Africa or Pacific Islands or something.  (mom note: whenever we check the weather where Elder Fisher is serving, it is raining about 50% of the time).

   Scripture for the week: Jacob 1: 19 “And we did magnify our office unto the Lord, taking upon us the responsibility, answering the sins of the people upon our own heads if we did not teach them the word of God with all diligence; wherefore, by laboring with our might their blood might not come upon our garments; otherwise their blood would come upon our garments, and we would not be found spotless at the last day.”

   Quote of the week: "I teach them the principles and then they govern themselves" (approximately) Joseph Smith

   That is about it but I am ready for June and hopefully some warmer weather will come with it as well. I love you guys and hope that you have a good week too!
