Well this week was a good week. We met with a ton of members to continue the mission vision and it was really good, the members here are so willing to help and it's a good thing because we need them! Haha and I found out one of the ladies in the branch here graduated from Lone Peak so that was kind of funny! And this other lady came up to me and said that she lives right next to Rhonda Bromley (the Principal at Lone Peak) and that they are great friends, and then there is that guy I told you about last week that played golf at BYU Hawaii last year with Zane and how they are like best buds so there have been some weird connections here! But it's really cool!
So I'll give a little background on our investigators:
B-- super nice guy, works Everyday for some construction company, and has been meeting with the missionaries for a few months and hasn't progressed a ton. His work schedule gets in the way a lot so it's hard to meet with him, so we are trying to kindle some faith in him. We met with him yesterday and talked to him about Alma 32 and it went really well. We challenged him to read the whole chapter, to pray about it and to come to church and to just give it a try.
P-- is an older guy, probably like 70 but has been very interested in what we believe, he's really good at keeping his commitments and the thing is that he is a very active Catholic. So there are some barriers with that but we had a really good lesson with him about the restoration and about the apostasy especially. He just had surgery so we haven't met with him since Tuesday but he's sincere which is really good!
E-- The lady that grew up Atheist her whole life. Not much to update her on because she's been busy this week but she came to church! Which was a surprise to all of us because she said she didn't think she could make it but she did! And we are meeting with her this week!
We picked up a new investigator this week named G-- just the other day and he had been taught in the past but his wife and daughter were pretty anti, so it held him back a little bit. But we stopped byand he let us in and told us that him and his wife had separated and his kid went with the wife, which is really sad and he was really emotional from it, but now he has an opportunity to accept the gospel. He pretty much forgot the happiness he felt from the gospel when he was being taught before. And we talked a lot about our Heavenly Father and how he gives the strongest soldiers the hardest battles because they can handle it. By the end of the lesson he committed to a baptismal date in the end of March! He was very excited. And obviously so are we! It was cool! We are meeting with him in a few days and will continue to teach him the lessons again to prepare him for it! He couldn't come to church this week because he had to take care of his sister that lives with him who has a big health problem, but he organized people to come over from now on so he can come to church!
It was a really warm week this week too! It was like 35 degrees all week! The week before it hit 40 below with wind chill so it was a hugeeee difference and felt amazing to be in some warmth! Well I hope you all have a good week, and will pray for missionary experiences like we have committed all the members out here to do! Because they are truly everywhere, you just have to look and pray and then act! I love you all!
