Well it has been a filled week. Since we are working on being more optimistic for our Zone's focus, Elder Rudd and I decided to say two good things that happened everyday this week. We might even extend it to the entire transfer! Its been fun to do considering we are both pretty positive people.....most of the time.
We also had exchanges this week. I went to Spanaway with Elder Oliva (who I think is Mexican). We did a lot of Less Active finding and most people weren't at their houses. However for once in my life people actually knew about their neighbors, totally surprising! We also got to go give this other Less Active family a blessing. They were so cool and really fun to be around, plus they were Black which makes them even cooler! They cracked me up the whole time we were there.
The next day we got back with our actual companions and the day turned into a long day of riding our bikes every which way! Which was getting so old! I am definitely going to quit that kind of exercise after the mission.
We did get a new investigator. He is a 14 yr. old named Christian. He is pretty awesome. We told him about a modern day prophet and he said he would definitely follow him if he found out what we taught him was true! Lets GO! Sadly he wasn't home yesterday to follow up with him and his prayer. That's ok though we will get him next time.
We also finished the rest of the Lessons for Taren. The last lesson was so good. We taught him at the Isbell's home and the testimonies that were given there were so good! Now he just needs to go and do his interview! His baptism will be this Saturday! So exciting!
This week we also did a bum load of service. About 12 hours of it! We split wood at the Stutz house, we pulled some trees out of the Stokes yard, and we helped Bro. Barker move some stuff to a storage facility. Lots of fun this service!
Well I love you all and hope you all have a wonderful week! Hopefully itgets warm here soon!
