Well this was a pretty normal week, we met with all three of our investigators this week, and the lessons went really really good! The first lesson was with James, we taught him the restoration, and he loved it, he seemed super excited about it and he said that he already knows Joseph Smith is a prophet because he already knows the Book of Mormon is true.... it’s only been 2 weeks since we have started meeting with him and he already knows!!!! He is solid haha! It was fun when we went to James we got to play Settlers of Catan with him and his girlfriend and it was really fun, it might be my new favorite game haha!
On Thursday we met with Elizabeth, that lesson went really well. We finished teaching her the plan of salvation and she loved it! She said that it made so much sense, she loved how there were degrees of glory and she loved the spirit world. I love teaching her, she has the strongest desire to learn and grow! She also told us this week that she did pray about baptism and she said it is something she will do, but she said she just needs to pray about it again and be sure... I think we will have a date with her this week.
We also met with Candace this week, and taught her the word of wisdom. She actually took it surprisingly well and said she would stop drinking coffee! We also taught our recent converts and had really good lessons with them. It’s hard to be in the small towns, because we don’t get to teach as much as in the cities. We mostly do a lot of service and volunteering. We try to get really involved with the branch and the community so we can hopefully generate people to teach!
This week on Saturday we volunteered at the multi K marathon here in Melfort. We were crossing guards on the road, so we got to direct traffic. It was pretty fun! We also had our branch activity this week, it was a pie and chili cook off. It was a lot of fun, and it was a huge success, they had 17 nonmembers there!!! It was like paradise for us haha. We went around and introduced ourselves and talked with everyone, it was really fun and the pie and chili were delicious haha!
Well that’s about all for this week, thank you all for your love and support, I’m so grateful for all of your prayers! Love you all and hope you have a great week!!!!!
