No matter how hard Friday is Sunday will come!

Week #48

Hey Everyone!

Well this week went a little bit better than the last week  but not by much! At least progress is progress! 

The coolest thing that happened this week or my favorite thing is that we received a reference from one of the members and his name is John A! Hes is 20 years old and he is really cool! We had two lessons with him this week! In the first lesson we taught him about the restoration of the Church and about halfway through the lesson he asked us about baptism. He wanted to get baptized which was really cool! We told him that we were going to explain that to him a little later and when we finished the lesson we invited him to be baptized and set a goal for him baptism and he accepted! That was my favorite part of this week and during the lesson I was thinking about a Mormon message from Jeffery R . Holland that says no matter how hard Friday is that Sunday will come!! That was the most spiritual experience we had this week!

After that we didn't have much luck again finding our investigators... Although one of the investigators that we are teaching came to the church this Sunday for the first time which was cool!! We had gone to pick him up and take him to church and so we got to Church a little bit late. When we got to the church we sat in the back and i was looking around trying to see who had come to church that we are teaching.  As i looked around i saw a bunch of people that we had  been teaching and it was just a good feeling to see people come to church and progress!!

We have been working a lot recently with the less actives and they have been coming to church too so even though we aren't having many baptisms we are helping members come back to the church which is good also! 

President Williams is really cool and his wife is really nice too! We got a letter from the President today and he notified us of a lot of changes that are going to happen in the mission!? Some of them seem like they are going to be difficult to do! For example one of the new rules is that we cant teach or baptize anybody under the age of 18 unless one or both of their parents are members of the church! In the long run i know that it will be good for the mission and for the church but we have investigators that are progressing under the age of 18.. So were going to have to make some adjustments from now on! In the long run it should be good for all of us and for the converts too but it might take some time to adjust!

Overall everything is going well! My companion will have 1 year in the mission in 3 days and in 5 days is his B-day so this should be a good and a fun week!

Hope you all have a great week and enjoy summer that's coming to and end! I know this church is true!!
