May 19, 2014

Here we actually have washers in the house so we can do laundry when ever we need to. its really nice. We do go to the store and stuff in the morning because the sisters usually email in the morning so we have to go later. Its good that cale is going to pick up soccer. at least Jackson will be able to help him out with that. good thing for them to do. Its to bad he did not eat better so he could be bigger and still play football. but its what ever. 

This last week was a different one. On Wednesday we lost Elder Young from our companionship and picked up Elder Thomas. It was sad to see Elder Young go but new experiences are always good. This past week for the fist 3 days of the transfer felt really different. Not sure if it was just because on new companion or that i would no longer be running the whole zone anymore (ill explain in a minuet) Or what. But it just felt really cloudy and slow. Like we just did not know what to do. It was really different. But on Saturday we were finally able to break this weird feeling. On Saturday we were able to find 4 new investigators and able to set up solid return appointments. Also we went to the wedding of these two young adults in our branch. Which i just happened to put on a tie with colors that matched perfectly so i was super stoked. But durring the party we were able to get a member to go with us to our last appointment for the night. The investigators name is Gustavo. He is from the Dominican republic. We found out that his wife is actually a member of the church, who was baptized along time ago in her county. So if we could get him baptized we would help an investigator and a less active, then with time there two kids when older could get baptized! its really awesome.

Also yesterday at night our appointments fell through so we decided to try to visit a less active from the branch. So we did. when we got to this house we asked the lady if this person lived here. she said no but that we could come in. So we did and find out it was a different family that was also a less active family. we talked to them for a while. The man of the house took a guess on how long we have been out by the rate of our Spanish and the crazy thing is he got them all exactly correct. Which is good cause it means that i am on track for Spanish :)  But at the end of talking we decided to ask them to think of a friend with whom they could share the gospel with as we prayed, and after share who it was. so we all did that. He told us of a friend he had and asked if he could ask his friend and then call us to come over and eat with them one night. It was a really special experience and we are excited to help them and there friend come to Christ. Less active work is something super important and is something i have gained a testimony about. and one of the best things that can be done about it is Home teaching and visiting teaching. If we had these two things really working the less active numbers would be much smaller, i know that to be true.  

Also this week the sister missionary's showed up in our branch, and they live down in Buford. So i no longer have to go down to Buford everyday like in the past. Which is kinda sad cause i liked those long drives but this will help us get allot more of the work done here!! But that really sums up the week that i had. Not anything else to report.

we just went to Buford cause it was covered by other missionarys but president took them out for along time so we had to cover both areas. we dont really do senior comps. but i would be cause i have the most time in this area so i do most of the leading for what we do. and he has been out about a year.
