Hey this week was great!
So we've been doing really good the past few weeks, finding, teaching,
This Tuesday we had zone conference, so we spent about 8-9 hours
listening to mission leadership tell us what we need to be doing
better. There was a few rule changes and few new teaching aspects, but
that's to be expected with a new mission president. President Bell was
a super out of the box, there's more than just the white handbook kind
of guy. But president McCuistion is a white handbook or nothing type
of guy, it's not a bad thing, but it really is really different. The
training was awesome and what I really needed at the time.
So unfortunately our recent converts, Crystal and Elijah, are moving
at the end of the week. So we don't get a lot of time to spend with
them before they go. We were hoping to be able to teach her daughter
too, but I guess that can be saved for the missionaries is Dallas. She
is really excited to move and we got her excited about being a lot
closer to a temple.
We've met a few really cool people this week, Joe and Elizabeth. Both
of them actually have cousins that are members, so they know a little
bit about the church and have a desire to learn more. Joe is in a
really tough situation because he just had a brother die, and another
brother steal everything from him, and he lost his house and is broke.
And Elizabeth is an African woman from Ghana and is really humble, the
unfortunate thing is she might live out of our area.
Transfers are coming up in the next week and I'm really ok with
whatever happens, I mean I'd prefer to stay in an area for longer than
just one transfer, but we'll see what the Lord has in mind.
This week Javi has a high potential to be baptized, we just have to be
really bold with him and make him realize that it's something he
needs. He has a desire, just not a burning one. So keep him in your
prayers and hopefully it will happen!
Not a whole lot of other stuff is going on, but things here are going well!
