I’m still just figuring things out here in my new to the area. We have a 10 year old boy with a baptismal date. He has some learning disabilities, so it’s great for me, because he’s a visual learner. So I teach him how I wish teachers would have taught me! He said he learns better with pictures. So I drew pictures for the end of each page of stuff we taught him. By the end of the lesson he was able to reteach everything we just taught him. Based upon the pictures, which is basically how my mind works. So, that is really really cool. He’s set for September 26th.
We just set a baptismal date for Alyssa. Apparently she’s on parole, or she has a warrant for her arrest. She has problems with drinking, smoking, and coffee, we may have to push her date 10/10 back a little bit, or a lot. We’ll see.
We got 24 referrals this week. Actually they’re old, but there’s some potential in there. I am in two wards again, which is more enjoyable because you can pick and choose where you need to be to get the most work down. It means on a slow week, when you might not have a lot going on in one area, you might have a lot going on in another and have progress. This is really good.
Biking and tracking and talking to a lot of people. The mission is having us track/find at least one hour every day, and we’ve been doing that!
Again, I just got here Monday, and I’m bad with names. So I’ll get some names and get back to you. At this point in time, pray for those two people, and pray that we’ll be able to find new ones. We have a few progressing investigators. There are these kids we’re talking to, and both of the parents are alright with it. Both of the parents are Mormons, but less active. So there’s a lot going on! I’m excited, there’s a lot we can do. There’s a lot of people we can see. A lot more than in Pahrump for sure. In Pahrump, there were 10 missionaries, and they took it down to 4 missionaries. They took out quite a bit, there just wasn’t enough work enough for 10 missionaries. Like, yes, every work is needed, and you could put 10 missionaries there, but their efforts would be better served in the valley. And I’m back in the valley, I’m enjoying it
