Week Seven 9-14-15

Well this has been one crazy week. Tuesday night I fell asleep and woke up to a weird noise. Elder Hamelin got up and looked into our living room and then fell to the floor. Upon questioning about what was going on he told me to go back to bed. Me being a stubborn Payne persisted only to know that there was a bat in our room.... at one point it flew by my head and I fell on my face to the floor and just crawled out of the room. We got it out of our room and went to bed.
The next day we were on exchanges/blitz with the zone leaders and had a great time. They were so much fun. We meet a lot of interesting people but no promising contacts.... but at the end of the night we watched a barge go through the lock and dam!!! That was cool!!!
The next morning the four of us left to go to a meeting when we saw the bat downstairs on the ceiling. the zone leaders got tennis rackets and balls to attack the bat. once Elder Todd hit the bat it flew right at him and he started to scream his head off! He finally hit it with the racket and  we placed a bowling ball bag on it and let someone else take care of it!
The next day we drove to Iowa city to a meeting and it was great to see all of my MTC friends. but boy was it a long drive. I am glad I didn't have to drive. Once back to Keokuk we had a meeting with Dylan and Q. they are amazing and we got them to commit to a baptism date. They are so strong and I know they will be ready by that date.
Church was weird as in we didn't go to church. There is a boy in our branch that got the measles and last week was his mom's birthday. We went to the party and so were exposed to him. We got a call Sunday morning saying that it was only sacrament and they wanted those who were in contact with this family to stay home..... So we didn't get to go to church but still went out finding. However without going to church and partaking of the sacrament just threw us off so we were in a off mode last night. We made up for it by going to the temple this morning!
I hope all of you that will happen to read this have a blessed week and know that I pray for you often! I love you ALL
Elder Payne
