We had a great Christmas week, on Christmas eve we were at “Dan Foley” feild playing in the plesently sunny bowl. it was the Nephites VS the Lamanites. E. Tubbs was playing middle linebacker and was guarding E. Ruvalcaba. (he’s hecka fast) but E. Tubbs’ companion was the QB. So E. Tubbs picked off the pass and RAN! he was going strong but E. Hafen was determined to repent for his thrown intreception and was running hard. So E. Tubbs put on a little extra juice. and his leg exploded. So he still scored but that was the end to the plesently sunny bowl. But by thursday his leg was fine again. On tuesday we ate breakfast with our ward mission leader. His family is a lot of fun. They have a huge dog named grizzly and a 9month old named evander. we ate Gumbo with brother Jones and his family. There was shrimp, crab legs, and lots of other good stuff. We then went to the Astles where E. Tubbs called the Tubbs family. Then we ate dinner then E.Hafen called his family. We did a bit of facebook then went to bed.
Wednesday we exchanged. I went with Elder Stainback, (like a laundry problem) we taught in his area and had good fun. Evert wednesday we teach a scripture study class at 7pm. Elder Stainback and I werent planning on teaching but when we showed up our companions (who were supposed to be there) were gone. So we taught and it went really well. On thrusday we had district meeting, and we saw kathryn again. She has agreed to be baptized on January 26th! she was at the scripture study class the day before as well and is doing great. We are very excited about her. After Dinner we got to start teaching another family as well. Jason and Maria. Maria has a friend she grew up with who is LDS so she used to go to early morning seminary everyday. She loved it and it is going to be a lot of fun teaching them. We saw kathryn again on Friday, we did our weekly planning. The coolest part was when i got to do my first baptismal interview ever. I interviewed a guy named Derek. He is one of Elder Camper and Stainback’s investigators. He is being baptized on the 12 at 5pm. It was so amazing being in there. He has a strong testimony and has been taught well. We talked about some of the commandments and about going to the temple in a year. His wife is already a member. As the interview was ending i felt the spirit very strongly. It was amzing. I knew he was ready to be baptized and make a covenant with God. It was so cool! Then on Saturday we had an early morning meeting with borther egloff our ward mission leader. He made all four of us breakfast. we had some apts fall through. But we had a sweet tracting experience. we tracted into this guy named Sinclare (like the gas station) We taught him about the preisthood and had a 30 min doorstep lesson with him. Those always pump you up. We are going to see him next saturday. Sunday was pay day. We had Kathryn come to church. and Becca. Our other investigator who is working towards a Baptism on January 26th. Her daughter was baptized a few months ago and now her mom is checking it out. She stayed all 3 hours and the ward did a great job taking care of her. They showed her around and sat by her so we wouldn’t have too. it was great. We are going to see her again tonight. then after church we visited a bunch of less active members with Brother Busch. He drove us in his dirty old work truck so we could save miles. I loved it, it was like landscaping all over again. He helped us a lot as we taught. Its crazy there are so many people who have MILLIONS of excuses on why they arent at church. But the truth is if you are there God will make your existance better. Thats it. Mosiah 2:41. Remember that.
That night we stopped on the side of the road to push a car that had a dead battery. It was a good work out. Then we woke up and started a new week.
It was fun talking to you. It really re-motivates me to work hard so i loved it. Thanks for all your support. And especially the free stuff! 😀
