I have been very blessed this last week. It all started with last Tuesday. We set up a couple lessons and they all were just incredible.
First at 1:00 we met with Daniel. We talked to him in his complex. He is a marine and has a faith in God. When we went to teach him, his friend Dakota was there too. We taught both of them and picked them up as investigators. I don't know how willing they are to change and apply what we taught them, but it was still cool!
At 2:15 we met with Steven. We taught him about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and set a day for him to be baptized on October 8th! The bummer is he is moving to Ohio this next week. The cool thing is he is moving to Stauney Hansen's ward! I am going to get to talk to her this next week so they know about him.
At 6:30 that night we had a lesson with a guy named Christian. He was a referral from Carlsbad sisters. When he showed up to the church for the lesson, we saw he brought his girlfriend. Turns out Eva, his girlfriend, has member cousins in the area! We picked them both up as investigators and set a date for them to be baptized on the 8th as well. Super good lesson!
That night we taught Nathaniel at 8:00. He is slowly, but surely progressing and building his faith in Christ.
4 New investigators in 24 hours!
Wednesday I went on exchanges with Elder Wockenfuss. That was a good time.
Thursday we had district meeting and taught Steven about the word of wisdom. He has a smoking problem, but he is working on it. And we taught Nathaniel again. We brought Brother and Sister Corless, the Missionary Relations senior couple in our mission, to the lesson. They were PERFECT! I love them so much.
We haven't been able to meet with Daniel and Dakota or Christian and Eva yet, but we are still hoping to see them.
At Edson I picked up 2 new investigators. Thomas Filener was invited by his "bunk mate" who is a member and has been talking about church the whole time at boot camp. It went really well! Shooting to get baptized in 2 weeks!
The other kid I got is Jacob Oviat. He is a solid guy. He has been taught before, but sees baptism as a big step and he doesn't want to rush. But he reads and prays and I still got 3 weeks with him!
Job Diaz didn't get baptized, but he will next Sunday at MCRD.
I love you all so much! I hope you have a good week!
This little kid was trying to carry all this stuff and he let me help him.
