Hello Everybody!

This has been a really good week.

Monday night we taught the Adams and had an awesome lesson, he only has a few more things to do and then he can get baptized!

Tuesday, Elder Robinson and I went and did service, and Bro. Roy took Elder Morrow and Elder Mutelau to transfers. We got back and waited until our new companions came. I Am with Elder Memmott and he is just as amazing as all of my past companions. That night we had another lesson with the Adams.

Wednesday, I was introducing Elder Memmott to some of our investigators, like Dennie, who we are having to reteach most things, but he is doing well.

Thursday, we had district meeting and Elder Memmott challenged all of us to hit our weekly talking with people goal, we set a district goal, and then we all went out to work. The rest of the day, we had no set appointments, so we went and tried a ton of potentials and talked with A LOT of people! That's still something I'm working on, but I'm definitely doing better with Elder Memmott.

Friday, we had several people we went by that we talked to Thursday, but none of them were home, so that was disappointing, but we move on and find those who are prepared. Well we then went home and had our weekly planning. That evening we had a lesson with a guy who was a member referral, and the member even showed up without us knowing he was coming. It was a good lesson, the guy said we could come back, but he will definitely need some work.

Saturday was going to be a super busy day, but every single set appointment fell through. We did meet a cool guy in the park next to the library, so that was a blessing. The Lord doth provide for those that work their tail off.

Sunday, we had a really good testimony meeting, and being in a branch of about 60-80 people, you can meet most everyone before it even starts. Afterwards the Carbines fed us lunch that was really good, and then we had a member come out with us to see the Adams Family. We set small goals to help him be ready for baptism. Then all four missionaries had dinner with some members, it was really good and we had a good time. We sometimes need to work on remembering who we are, myself included, but the members still love us which is good. That night we found out that the district beat its talk with people goal by almost 200!

Love you all!
