New Gators!!

Alright. Well, this email is going to be soo short, but we had a great week! 

Elder Bergman and I are staying here!!!! So you can start sending those letters Buddah! (: We had a 5week transfer so this one will be 7 to even it out. 

So, On Friday morning we had Zone Meeting and we were still just talking about the importance of working with members. We had a really good lesson presented by the Zone Leaders! 

Friday evening, we started teaching a new investigator!!!! Brother Williams is a recent convert and his son Mounda Jr. wanted to take the missionary lessons! We taught the first lesson with him and everything went really well. We committed him to be baptized on September 27th, but he still wants to pray and see how he feels about that date. He does want to be baptized though!! 

Saturday we met with ANOTHER new investigator named Charly! He visited Salt Lake about a month ago and the Sister missionaries caught him! Hehe. They shared the first lesson with him and took him into the visitors center and he loved it! He told them that he wanted to learn more so they referred him to us! We shared the first lesson with him and it went really well. He asks super good questions which shows me that he really is taking in all that we teach him. It is so awesome being a missionary. I LOVE it!!!! 

Yesterday, we had the coolest thing happen. We had dinner at the Johnson's home and we invited Charly and Mounda! They BOTH came! There was also a less-active member there too. Yea you could say it was a party! We had a good meal and we shared the Plan of Salvation lesson with them and it went so well. We are really trying to be good listeners and to ask inspired questions and that makes all the difference. 

This week was seriously one of the best weeks ever. I promise you that missionaries are most happy when they are being obedient and when they are teaching. I am a happy missionary! I love being out here in Texas and there is no doubt in my mind that I have been called here for a specific reason. I have been called by a prophet of God and he knew exactly where I needed to be. My testimony continues to grow each day and I love it. I am learning so much, you guys. I am convinced that the reason I am going bald so fast is because I am gaining so much knowledge, that there really isn't enough room for some lousy hair! Hahaha I do love the hair that I do have, and I take extra good care of it! 

I love you all so much and I hope you have a great week!!!!

P.S. I bought a new toothbrush and it is seriously life-changing. I feel like I just left the dentist every time I brush my teeth and I LOVE it! Its a Philips brand if you are wondering. Also, remember to floss at least every night! It is so important! I never miss a day. Sometimes, I floss after lunch too, but always after I brush at night! I promise you blessings if you do that! Whiter teeth and less or no cavities!! 

Sorry this is the only pic but I'll send more next week! This is our Zone. We have one of the larger ones in the mission!
