No one is getting transferred!
Which makes me so happy because now I can be with the best companion ever (Sister Awesome Sauce Noyce) for the holidays! This transfer is going to be seven weeks long and has three holidays, like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years 🙂
This week wasn’t too successful, but I can tell you we worked very hard! Throughout the week we did some tracting and have some potentials to show for it. We went up to one house that had a little dog playing in the front yard that pushed the front door open. So the door was wide open and there was an elderly man sitting on the couch, we just started talking to him and told him we were missionaries and he told us about a sign by the front door that said that he and his wife were Catholic and not interested in other religions. But Sister Noyce saw a piano by him and told him that she loved the piano and knows how to play, he then got excited and told us to come back a few hours later when his wife would be off work. We came back and his wife apparently had to take someone’s shift and keep working, but he wanted us to come back this week! Before we left he asked me a lot of questions about mormons in Utah and what our missionary purpose was and is really interested! It reminded me of something someone told me once that Catholics are the best listeners- once you can get them to listen. So Hopefully some good investigators there!
Another amazing prospect is a member’s friend that recently lost her husband and has realized how important church is. Her husband was an inactive member of the church, but he always prayed for the both of them. After losing him she realized that she didn’t know how to pray and knew about sealings in the church. Her goal is to be sealed to her husband. She is what we call the golden investigator and is such a kindred spirit. Her husband’s family is very active in the church and we helped set up at her house for a dinner after the funeral services. They told us that they have been talking to her about the gospel for the past 24 hours and she’s been very receptive. She has been going to church and coincidently in the Gospel Principles class we have been learning about the plan of salvation which she just loves.
Today we had a zone activity of charades and volleyball. I played and actually did really good. I never realized before how powerful my serves were, so happy days I actually a chance at sports! I also accidently hit an elder in the back of the head with one of my serves. It was nice for a change not being the one hit in the head, but I did feel bad about hitting him. But he’s cool with it, and complimented me on my serve 🙂
Niki took us out for sushi again! We were so stuffed after, but it was so worth it!
That’s all for today folks!
