NEWS (INVESTIGATOR'S NAMES HAVE BEEN CHANGED TO MAINTAIN ANONYMITY)
November 18, 2013 A whole new world
Well hola familia! This week has been.. Probably one of the toughest. I handled the change in a weird way and had a lot of anxiety, but things are looking up. I miss my San Vicente home and sis Foutz a lot. I do have to say though that I love my Companion Sister Ellis. She is a heaven sent! We also have an incredible ward! You know on the Work of Salvation videos the ward that is all missionary oriented and has an awesome ward Counsel and ward missionaries. yah our ward is just like that! It is a complete culture shock form my last ward and complete opposite. And the craziest thing happened. The ward took care of our investigators at church. Our investigator Liza came up to us and said she wants to get baptized on Dec 7th and already talked to the Bishop. We got two referrals at church. What is this place..? I am in a completley different world. The work is not as face paced with baptisms as in a Spanish ward, but this place is the real deal. How a ward should function! They are so missionary oriented- especially Bishop! He is great! We have 3 solid investigators right now. Liza, Bob, and David. Liza is getting baptized as I mentioned. Bob has some doubts he is working through, but has all the lessons. Finished the Book of Mormon and is reading Doctrine and Covenants and reading Faith in Christ. He is super intelligent. And David is progressing on a slower rate, but something cool is he is a famous bad-mitten player. Or well was when he was younger. The ward is great and the area has some good work and we are excited to find some new investigators in this upcoming weeks!
I am still trying to get on top of my feet here, but things are looking up. Sorry this is short my keyboard went bazerk! L:OVE YOU ALL!
