We had a very busy day today. We started with apartment inspections in Hanford at 9:00. We inspected three apartments and left a dozen cookies for each companionship; they had very clean apartments.
We next went to the doctor so Elder Fanning’s pacemaker/defibrillator could be read. He had no incidents in the last six months. So he’s not going back for six months.
We went to a Verizon store to get help for Elder Fanning. He managed to delete his calendar. They got it restored very quickly.
We left for Corcoran, about a half hour drive from Hanford. We inspected the sister missionaries apartment. We then took them to lunch at a Mexican restaurant that we had never tried. The food was pretty good. Sister Contreras said it was as close to authentic Mexican as she had eaten here. We had fajitas and the sisters had sopas.
We drove straight to the base to do our grocery shopping. By the time we got home and unloaded the groceries, it was 2:00.
We left for the base at 3:45. We went to see Lacey and Mitch. We taught them the resiliency lesson on children and how to help them be spiritually resilient. Since Lacey is pregnant with their first child, the lesson did not take as long as we expected.
We went to see a couple who just had a baby on Monday. Everyone was asleep but Dad. We dropped off the gift we had for the baby. He snuck back in and brought the baby outside so we could see her. She weighed 8 pounds 11 ounces at birth, and has really long black hair. She is such a cutie.
We stopped at the cleaners and Sister Fanning dropped Elder Fanning at the McDonalds on base. She went to pick up her companion April. They went to see two sisters to do their visiting teaching. Neither sister was home. Sister Fanning talked to April afterwards to check on her and her girls. Dad is deployed for three months.
Sister Fanning picked up Elder Fanning and we went to see Jimmy and Allie. We asked her if Sister Fanning and Betty could give her a baby shower. She was really excited. Aliie is not a member but is being taught by the sister missionaries. Jimmy is working on Sunday, so he is not able to come to church.
We got home about 8:00. We spent the rest of the evening texting our institute students, doing laundry, doing dishes, and putting away groceries.
