Weekly Email # 79 - 18 Months Baby!

Hey Everyone!

18 Months! 6 more to go! We are going to go burn a pair of slacks at Jonathan's house (our investigator) sometime this week, so you'll get a picture of that next P-day! But lets talk about this week.

We had Zone Training Meeting this week, which was a good Spiritual meeting to kick off the rest of the week. We also had exchanges with the DL finally, after rescheduling twice. Haha and in the coming days, we will have ZL exchanges as well, which should be fun!

On Thursday and Friday, we visited some new people and started working with some others too. Back when Elder Young and I were together (my last comp, which was almost three months ago. Crazy.), we performed service for Steve and Kathy, an older couple who was in need of lawn help around the house. I guess when Elder Young knocked on the door, they initially weren't interested, but when he offered service, they set up a return appointment to come back, when Elder Young and I came and did service. They were awesome and we lost contact for a while. Then, this Thursday, Elder Reynolds and I went over and talked to Steve. He read the pamphlet we gave him and told us he would read the Book of Mormon as well! He said he would tell Kathy to read it too! Big bummer, though. They are leaving for a cruise this next week and they wont be returning until beginning of March! :( He was pretty committed though, and told us to check up on them before they left and to go by the house every now and then while they are gone to make sure no one had robbed it. Hahaha so that was quite the day. Oh, and we also invited them to church, where they said both of them would be able to go. But on Saturday, we received a LONG voicemail from him, explaining that his granddaughter is under their care for the next few days and wont be able to come. We'll continue to help them out!

We have been reading the Book of Mormon together as a mission again, which has been great! I read Mosiah 28:3, and that basically describes our current situation with the multiple investigators we have that aren't progressing and for those that we have not found yet.

3 Now they were desirous that salvation should be declared to every creature, for they could not bear that any human soul should perish; yea, even the very thoughts that any soul should endure endless torment did cause them to quake and tremble.

That's it for me this week! Love you all. Thanks for your continuous thoughts and prayers. They have been needed these past few weeks. Both the investigators and I greatly accept them! Have a fun next several of days!
