Our Awesome District

I am Killing Sister Poulton!
Well we got transfer news on Saturday and Sister Poulton and I are staying together.  It is her last six weeks in the mission which is crazy.  
This week we were at a dinner appointment and we were sharing a thought about the Title of Liberty and asked each member of the family what they were fighting for.  The Nephites were fighting for their families, land, liberty, and freedom.  We talked about how pretty much everyday we are fighting a battle. The teenage son said that he was fighting for all friendships, naps, and Taco Tuesday. That made us laugh.  He also has been writing the blues and he wrote a song about a bunny. We recorded it and it was great.  I will have to see if I can attach it.   
Joan was able to make it to church yesterday which was great.
The other day we went over to Mike's to teach his mom and she was not there so we ended up teaching Mike instead.  In the middle of our lesson Mike got a phone call from a member of the ward and the member basically cleared up his hold back [what was holding him back] and it was great.  We were talking to the member later and he said he got the feeling to call right then and so he did. It was great because we were about to have a conversation about it, but the member took care of it and it was great.  Go Brother Pulsipher for listening to the Spirit and calling Mike.  
We were teaching this lady named Judy who is a less-active in the ward.  We were talking about scripture stories and talked about Moses and the fiery-serpents and how people could have just looked at the brass serpent but didn't because it was too easy.  We talked about how sometimes we seem to look for big things to fix our problems but it really is the little things like reading our scriptures.  She looked at us and said, "Sisters, this is exactly what I needed; I was having a really hard day and was trying to think of how to fix it and then I came and talked with you guys."  It was great.  
I went on an exchange in Gunnison this week and that was fun.  We did service in Crested Butte at the Wildflower Festival.  It was super pretty.  
It was the last district meeting of the transfer which was a little sad but one of the Elders made us all funnel cakes so that was great.  The Delta Elders also decided to saran wrap our car; we are thinking of ways to get them back. 

I hope you have a great week.
