The Best of Times
This past week was crazy! We had so many meetings and so little time to work. But despite all that we still had an amazing week!
For P-Day we had a crazy water balloon fight with the whole zone! The water balloons had color in them and so they would temporarily dye our clothes. We ran out of balloons in like 5 minutes. It was a ton of fun.
Tuesday we had zone conference, which was like a 9 hour meeting where we learn how to be good missionaries, all 4 APs and the mission president gave trainings. It was super awesome and I learned so much!
Wednesday we had our weekly zone pow wow and district meeting. We had trainings from our zone leaders and our district leader, we did role plays to practice what we learned in zone conference, being COEO, which means being able to capitalize on every opportunity. We did several different role plays where there was a million different
things going on and we had to do whatever we could to capitalize on it. Afterwards we were able to go out and work.
This week we've really been focusing on A_____ and her family, it's been amazing to see their progression and A_____ has been able to live the word of wisdom for almost two weeks. So if all goes well she and two of her sons will be baptized at the end of the week. What is awesome is that our whole trio is going to be able to baptism someone
in the family, so we will all be dressed in white! The only thing that could hold her back is her interview. She has to be interviewed by our mission president Friday.
One of our other investigators, L_____, basically dropped off the face of the planet. We stopped by his house every single day. Near the end of the week we found out that he had moved a few houses down. When we stopped by we found out he had a cyst that he got taken out of his back. But he promised us that he hasn't smoked or drank all week.
Unfortunately he wasn't able to make it to church. So hopefully we can find him a ride to church this Sunday and he can progress to be baptized on the 9th.
S____y we had to pass off to the sisters, but we were able to help her find a new place to live, and she should be moving in any day now!! We also found out her aunt has been a member for the past 25 years and was telling her how much the church could bless her life. So the sister have a golden investigator.
This next week should be huge for our district, at least 7 baptisms! Since it's Elder Mitchell's last week he wants to go really hard, quadruple standard! So needless to say this next week is going to be the best week of my entire mission.
Love you all hope you have a good week!
