With a Little Help From My Friends

So this week was great! We started working with some pretty elect
people and had a few awesome days out working.

So last week during the APs interview training they challenged us to
have 30 new contacts every day. So that was something that we had been
working on throughout the week. And Wednesday our work started
producing fruit! We found 10 new investigators Wednesday alone! Some
of them are a part member family, named the Crawford's. There is a 9
(soon to be 10) year old, a 15 year old, and an 8 year old. So the 8
year old wouldn't be a convert baptism, but that doesn't matter still
try to help everyone we can!

We met them a few weeks ago but we're never able to sit down and have
a lesson with them until this last week. Their dad told us to come by
sometime when he isn't home and talk to his wife. So we did just that,
and she was 100% on board for working to get the kids baptized! The
dad is the one who is a little hesitant, but they came to church this
week and have been reading from the children's Book of Mormon! So

John is still the same. He wasn't able to come to church this week
because he was sick. But he told us that he hasn't felt the spirit in
years, we've told him that he'll feel the Spirit if he quits smoking
but that's something that is hard for him. But we'll continue to work
with him on that.

So Tuesday we had zone conference this week. Which means I got to
see some of my missionary friends! And of course it meant awesome
revelation from 9-5. And the food was pretty good too. But wow our
mission president is an amazing and inspired man.

Another cool thing that happened, not really related to missionary
work, there was a wedding! But not just any wedding, but a Samoan
wedding! So needless to say there was a LOT of food. It's too bad we
only have an hour for dinner, the celebration was awesome and a lot of
fun dancing and stuff. All the guests got a lavalava, too bad I can't
wear it proselyting cause it's pretty awesome.

So crazy thing that happened, we came home one night and there was a
bat in our building!! We walk in and it started swooping down at us,
so we tried chasing it out of the building. But it just wouldn't
leave! It finally perched out above the exit sign. It was an

There's a new policy in the mission that every 5th week of the
transfer we have to do a "deep clean" so we took a couple hours,
longer than I thought, to clean every inch of our apartment. It was a
good workout, I started sweating!

The mission is awesome. I love every moment!  This is the last week of
the transfer so next week things could be changing up.

Love y'all, have a fantastic week!
