I really like teaching

October 14, 2013

This week we taught a lot of lessons! i really like teaching. yesterday we had our first lesson with a couple named chelsea and scott. they are both marines and they are really awesome. Scott told us that he has been sober for about 4 months, so Heavenly Father has already been preparing him. There was a pack of cigarrettes on his table though, so we may have to work on that. There are a lot of people here who smoke. Almost everyone we street contact is out smoking haha. People are different out here than they are in utah,i can tell you that! I like them though. I am finally used to baptist churches everywhere. It will be weird coming home and not having those really.

We are teaching a lot of people and less actives that think that they don't need to go to church to be close to God. Me and Sister T are studying on how to deal with that because there are a lot people who think that way! so if you have any advice on that, let me know!

It's getting pretty cold here, so hopefully mom sends my coat soon! it rains really hard everyday. It's kind of depressing, but it's alright because we have the tangled cd to listen to while we are driving which cheers us up! Sister T is still the driver this transfer, which is a good thing, cause i really don't want to drive in Virginia! I probably will have to sometime though during my mission. . . Everyone says to stay off the roads during winter cause no one here knows how to drive in the snow or ice! We went to get our car inspected a few days ago and ended up sharing our favorite scriptures with the mechanics that work there haha. one of them said he has a BOM in his car and reads it every once in a while. and another gave us his address so we could have missionaries stop by his house. Being a missionary is fun, but really weird haha. Something different about me that i've noticed is that i hate tv. Whenever it is on, it drives me insane, even if it's ellen. This will probably all change when i get home and i'll go back to watching a lot of tv, but for now i hate it! Oh and i would like to add, that i just saw a greenie who came up to me while i am typing this and said that she read my blog before she came out, so i hope there is nothing embarrassing on there!! I don't have much more to say! and the zone leaders are in our ward so we are pretty close to them, and we told them we were sick of our music so they handed us their entire cd case and that had a bunch of talks in it. That's where i listened to His Grace is sufficient, but part of that talk is in the september ensign, but you should listen to it becuase it's better than reading and they cut a bunch of stuff out in the ensign. Also, i listened to a talk by Elder Holland called Lotts wife or something like that that was really good. I don't have much more to say, but i'll probably be on for a bit to text! write letters if you have time.
Love, Sister Bennett
