We had a really good week over here. Some of the highlights include a new bishop called to our ward, finding a couple new investigators, one through a member and the other by knocking doors, pinewood derby with Damon our recent convert kiddo and helping an old lady set up a new computer and etc.
Our old bishop got called to be the 2nd counselor in the stake presidency. The new bishop is so awesome. The old one was incredible, so its hard to say which is better. But the new bishop invited us over for dinner last night and we got to talk about some new missionary ideas such as 'Bishop splits' and also bi weekly Dennys breakfast meeting with him to go over the work. Those will be massive blessings.
The way that we found our one investigator was through the Monettes! They're at it again, in finding people for us. This time they just sicked us on a cool family they knew. We just talked to them on the porch and taught a tiny bit but it went really well. They were very receptive and nice to us. Their names are Deryl and Elizabeth. The other came from trying to visit a less active member and she didnt answer. So we knocked on the neighbor's door to ask when the best time to catch them at home would be and thats when Thadeus, our new investigator, came along. He didn't know the members at all, just moved in. So we just transitioned to focusing on him and taught him a brief Restoration at the door. Both of those people we found want us back so we will see how it goes. Roosevelt didnt make it to church this week. We didn't get to visit him until yesterday evening.
We went to the ward Pinewood Derby this week and it totally reminded me of when we went to g-pa's to make my batmobile. We went and supported our recent convert, Damon, who just got baptized.
We have been having a sweet P day!! Had fun getting groceries, and we're going to hang out with the whole zone and do activities at the church later. Usually we just hang out by ourselves and window shop. We decided that is depressing and doesn't bring much fun, so we fixed it, haha. I'll take some pictures of the apartment and the wonderful Corolla and send them to ya next week.
Love ya tons,
