Put your shoulder to the wheel, push along! -May 1st, 2017

Hello everyone! Hope you've all had a great week. We definitely did here in Gadsden! 

On Tuesday we had interviews with President and they went well! I'm so grateful for President and Sister Sainsbury and all that they do for this mission! 

Little piece of news... Zone Trainings have been permanently cancelled! What I heard is that it's because of the increase of meeting such as interviews and zone conferences that came with the new monthly schedule a few months back. So there's now one less meeting to worry about! 

Then on Thursday we had an exchange in Birmingham. I was with Elder Foudy and we had a great day. All of our appointments fell through but we were able to still get some stuff accomplished and have a good time. We were contacting and I saw this black lady working on her garden who for some reason had bags on her feet... so i went up to her and asked if today was "wear bags on your feet day" and I just didn't get the memo? Stupid joke but she had a pretty good laugh over this and we ended up talking to her for about half an hour. Good ole southern ladies that will just talk your ear off! We then had dinner with an awesome family who have always been really close to the missionaries. Families like that are the best, you just instantly feel like you're at home! After dinner, all four missionaries went to their basketball night. The biggest turnout they've had yet.... still not as crazy as prattville but it was good haha 

Then on Friday we had district meeting again which went well! Being in an all elder district is interesting... you have to come up with fun activities that the sisters normally take charge on haha but it's still good. There are great elders in this district so it always turn out well. 

I don't really have much else to report on! We've still just really been trying to find a solid pool of investigators. We've been working hard and haven't been seeing a ton of success from it, which is always hard but a normal aspect of missionary work period but especially in the south haha! Hence the title of this email... we're trying our hardest to keep pushing and keep working hard so that we can help the work move along in this area. 

Well, the weeks have been flying by so i'll talk to y'all again before we know it! Love yall!
