Last week was a slow week but it was still a good week. Most of the appointments we set up fell through. So what we have been trying to find new investigators that will want to meet with us. The only exciting thing that happened this week, has Henry, a former investigator we dropped about two months ago, gave us a call and said he wanted to meet with us again. So we set something up and went over Sunday night. This time his girlfriend Jessica was there, and he understood the Restoration better than he did before, and Jessica understood it. The law of chastity is going might be a problem because they are living together. Law of chastity and word of wisdom are the two biggest challenges with most people I have taught. But they both committed to get baptized. So it was a good ending to a not so good week. 

We are still trying to meet with Chris, he is starting to drop of the face of the planet. We are still trying to meet with David, Leo, and Pedro. To answer your question we usually wait couple weeks of trying to meet with someone before dropping them. We let them know from a note or a text to let us know when they are ready to meet with us again. They ward is helpful with fellowshipping a lot of them have a desire to come out with us, but I feel bad because we have a hard time getting appointments set up. 

That's it for my week thanks for the love and support

Just Another Week

Yesterday we had zone conference and P-day got moved to Tuesday, so that is why I am emailing today. We had a good week.

Chris missed our last lesson that we had with him and he still hasn't been to church so we aren't sure about his intent right now. We have been etching Pedro, but we are planning on basing him off to the Spanish missionaries, he speakers good English, but he struggles a little and he told us it is easier for him to read in Spanish, so he both think he would do better in a Spanish ward.

Recently we have been picking up new investigators and then dropping them. Mostly because they won't commit. So we are trying to find someone who is willing to continue meeting with us. Leo canceled our appointment so we rescheduled. We are hoping that goes well. He started teaching David he was a former investigator, he told us that the only thing that was holding him back from being baptized was that he needed to marry his girlfriend that is living him. He has a crazy work schedule to trying to meet win him has been difficult. 

Well that's about it for my week. Thanks for the love and support.

new ipad

So I didn't email yesterday because we had a training meeting. We
received our iPad minis so I am emailing from McDonalds on my iPad. We
are 1 of 30 missions to receive them. It's a adjustment on using these
because just about everything is on them. Our planner and area book,
they want use using the gospel library for our studies. Once we get
things figured out it will make thing a lot more effective. Other than
that is  was a normal week.

We talked with Debbie and Crystal and are an appointment to teach
other lesson. They still seem to be a little flaky, but we are hoping
that their desire will increase. Chris is still doing good. He hasn't
been to church yet which is a little irritating. He loves reading the
Bible, we aren't sure if he loves reading the Book of Mormon as much a
the Bible but we are going to check that next time we meet him.

We started teach Key, he from Vietnam, so there is kind of a language
barrier. He referred himself on Mormon.org, but it seems that he is
meeting with us because he wants to know more, he isn't really looking
for religion. So we will see how far he goes and if his interest

So the only exciting thing that happened this week was getting iPads.
Unless you think being barked at by dogs is exciting. Thanks for the
love and support.

Last week was another slow week.
We haven't been able to get in contact with Debbie and Crystal, so we are going to keep trying this week then we will drop them if we can't get in contact.  We started teaching A guy named Chris, we found him riding the bus, he has meet with missionaries before, and was interested with meeting with us again. He is receptive of what we have to share. We also meet with a guy named Leo, he has meet with missionaries off and on for a few years. He also has a son-in-law who is a less active in the ward. So we will see if how interested Leo is. He likes to talk to missionaries, but doesn't really understand why we come over.
Other than that nothing to exciting happened other than it rained Sunday evening. Thanks for the love and support.
