Holy Moses!

March 31, 2014

So this past week was pretty great!
Starting on Monday, we had dinner with the Oxborrows (a real nice, young couple in the ward) and they took us out to a place called Genghis Grill. It was pretty delicious! I liked it a lot! Then we went and visited a less active family in the ward, the Koch's (pronounced coke) and talked a little bit about church. Unfortunately both of them work every Sunday, so that's a big obstacle for them. But they're way cool, and super easy to get along with.
On Tuesday we had to get our carpets cleaned, and they gave us a window from 9 to 2, so we had to stay in until they got here to clean the carpets. So we didn't get to work as much as we would've liked that day, but we got some stuff done still! We had a lot of tracting, and a few less actives to visit, then we had dinner with the Fields (a really old couple in the ward) they fed us Long John Silvers. Elder Blaylock already wasn't feeling too hot that day, and the food just flipped him over the edge. We had to get home pretty quick because he was real close to throwing up, so we stayed in the rest of the night. But that's OK :)
On Wednesday we had a TON of potential investigators to try and visit, and so that's what we did, aaaaaaalllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll day. Unfortunately we were only able to find 1 person who wanted us to come back, but even still, we did our best! So that's good.
Thursday rolled around and we visited a bunch more potentials, and then a really Less Active member texted us and said we could stop by! Nathan is in the Air Force, and he repairs the jets, so that's pretty freakin' cool! But we talked very boldly with him about coming to church and he said he would make it! (he didn't though... it was sad)
Friday came and we still had a ton of potentials to go and see (still do by the way) and so we did just that! When dinner rolled around we were able to go to the Bensons and have some Papa Johns, afterward, Brother Benson came out with us to try and visit some people. We were only able to talk to a Less Active member of the ward, which wasn't what we had planned. But we still had a good talk with him, and invited him to church. He said he would be there! (He wasn't... it was sad)
Then, just yesterday we had a really successful day! We tried a few potentials right after lunch, and then we had Bro. Favre pick us up for a team-up, and we went out and visited all sorts of people, one such person was Nam. I haven't mentioned him yet I don't think, mainly because I wasn't quite sure yet. But anyways, Nam is from Vietnam and he speaks very broken English. However, he has been reading the Book of Mormon for the past 3 years in English and Vietnamese, and that's how he's learning English! SO cool! We have him on Baptismal Date for the 26th of April, and he's progressing really well. It's hard to gauge how much he truly understands, but from what we can see in his demeanor, it's a lot more than we originally thought. He's awesome! After we saw Nam we got dropped off at our Dinner Appointment, we had STEAK! It was awesome :) I really enjoyed it for sure. Then we got picked up for a team up with Brother Bain, found 3 new investigators!!!!!! It was awesome, that rounded out the day. :)
Just yesterday we weren't able to do too much, due to different meetings and such. But we had an appointment with a new Investigator, Terry, he was unfortunately running out the door, but we still had a quick lesson with him about the Book of Mormon, and he said he would read it! So we're really hoping and praying that he does.
But that pretty much updates all of ya!
This is truly the Lords work everyone, and He has hastened it! Let's catch up :)
