Happy ST. Patties Day.
This week was fun. Monday we had dinner with an awesome family and it was also with the other elders as well so it made it even more fun. Tuesday Elder 'Iongi packed and we went out and did some work which was followed by an awesome dinner with the Burgie family. Wednesday was rather boring I waited at a church building from 8:30- about 2:30. We had a lesson with Jason and unfortunately he doesn't want to meet with us anymore for a little while but he is still going to read from the Book of Mormon. Thursday was rather boring as well I was helping Elder Broderick get to know the area and we knocked a bunch of doors with some success. Friday was a pretty busy day we were out for the most of it teaching less active members and did some service with Peter. Saturday was fun we had a pretty empty day to fill so we went tracting, street contacting, and tried to visit members. This is how we meet Sarah and her family. Sunday was great we had 3 awesome talks about faith just what i needed at the right time.
This has been an interesting week getting a new companion. I am excited and a little worried for this transfer. We were able to get some good numbers this week. I know that the Lord will provide means that we can do His work. This week we met with Jason and he has asked that we just give him time to read the Book of Mormon and give him a call every once in a while. However we were able to find 4 new investigators this week, 3 of those are a mother(Sarah), a son(12), and a daughter(8). The daughter has been asking about going to a church for the past few months so we are excited to start teaching them. It was cool to talk with them because they were outside playing with their dog and we talked with her a little bit and asked if we could share a message with her and her family and she said sure. We taught the restoration then she told us the age of her kids and it was awesome to tell her that they both could get baptized and her son could receive the Priesthood. We have an appointment with them Wednesday evening and I am hoping to be able to extend a baptismal commitment to them and possibly a date. We are going to keep working hard and having faith. I hope you have a good week and I am excited for one here.
