We had the best pday I've ever had! Some of the members here Sandra and Rusty Wade took us to a pond in Lake City! We got some worms and crickets and headed fishing! We caught about 10 fish each! It was a perfect time! Afterwards we headed to Texas Roadhouse and had some lunch! After pday we meet with our sisters from Macclenny and had our trade off with them! Sister Anderson used to serve in Lake Butler so it was fun for her to come back! This has been our 3rd trade off together! We have been following each other around the mission!

Then on Wednesday we had MLC (Missionary Leadership Council) with ELDER DUBE!!! It was amazing!! He has just recently been called to the quorum of the seventy! Him and his wife stayed a few days with our mission and we got to meet with him as all the leadership in the mission! He gave us great training on how we can be better Sister Training Leaders, and better Zone Leaders and how to help the other missionaries! That night we had Book of Mormon class. Our investigator Priscilla came, and we had a member join us for a lesson afterwards! It went wonderfully! She decided she wants to come to church! Yay!
Then on Thursday we had a busy day! We had a Zone Conference with Elder Dube! We got together as the Lake City and Gainesville zone and had lots of trainings! We got to hear trainings from Elder Dube, Sister Dube, President Craig, and Sister Craig! They all trained us how we can become better teachers, and how to follow the spirit more to find the needs of others! Then we did some role plays and practiced teaching and testifying of the truth! One of the things that Elder Dube shared is how we are assigned to our missions. He was able to observe the apostles assigning missionaries and he said that missionaries are assigned to the mission President... Not the actual mission area! That was very interesting! Now I know I definitely needed my President that I have now!
On Friday after we had weekly planning, we drove to Jacksonville so that we could meet up with the Brunswick sisters! They had just finished their Zone Conference so we dropped by and traded off with them. I had my trade off with sister Smith! She has been out in the mission for about 3 weeks and she absolutely loves it! We had a great time in Lake Butler!
On Saturday we went by to the Moods! None of their family is members of the church, and she invited us by to meet them all! She has a great family and we had a lot of fun with them. A few of them had to leave but her sister and daughter stayed. We ended us sharing with them a message and it lead to them asking a lot of questions and really opening up to us! We had some really great discussions and they are going to have missionaries in their home town help them with service! Yay!
