Okay so this week was AWESOME!
We had a few minutes to visit someone before our dinner appointment after Zone Conference with Elder Corbridge. We decided to go visit a former investigator to see if there would be a time we could come back and start teaching her again. This lady was not home. However, we met her daughter Brook and we started to talk with her. She had explained to us that she didn't believe in God or Jesus Christ, so it was more of a discussion on Faith. We talked with her for a few minutes and ended up extending a baptismal commitment and she said yes, if she knew that what we were saying was true! We went back to teach her and everything went really well, but it is so different to teach someone who does not have a Christian background. This took a lot of preparation in our studies before we went to teach her!
We also had a great lesson with Kona this past week, and she came to church again! She made us these really good dark chocolate granola bars and I seriously ate too many. I had Elder Lythgoe eat so many so I wouldn't eat any more of them!
We are also teaching a daughter of a less active member and her and her sister came to church this past !
I know that people are being prepared and we just have to find them! We have been trying to work more with members in finding, but we also have been doing a lot of street contacting. We have been trying to invite people to be baptized in the first contact so they know our purpose. This has been something that President Mortensen has asked the mission to do and it is making a huge difference!
I hope you all have a great week and know that I love you!
