Well i’m with Elder Choffin now. He is from Rexburg Idaho. So i’m going to be killed off (finish his mission) by my first companion from Idaho! He is a lot of fun. He has been out for less then 6 months. But he is super solid already.
I have a personal goal to invite someone to be baptized daily for the rest of the transfer. We missed Sunday because of so many meetings and an inability to proselyte. But we’ll do 2 today to make up for it.
Back to Email:
We’ve had a lot of fun experiences this week. I’ll put them in no certain order. One day it rained like crazy. But it was building appreciation day in our ward so we cleaned the entire building top to bottom and laid new wood chips in all the flower beds. it was fun to run around getting wet and covered in wood chips. I think someone posted a picture of me and my new companion online of us in the Gym afterwards.
But back to my new companion. He is the 6th of 8 kids. He loves basketball and played soccer, he is 18 till October 7th. And he is a Mormon.
One day out of the week we had my first Skype lesson ever! Elder Choffin (shoffin) and I taught a girl named Reysie in Colorado all about the book of Mormon and how it will help her know that the church is true. She said her first ever out loud prayer with us too! It was amazing, teaching someone over 1000 miles away.
During another day of the week we taught a new couple named Greg and Ori who moved into our area after another set of Elders met them across town. The miracle was we showed up right on time and i forgot to write the address down. But i remembered the exact house number even though i had never been there and the elders told it to me 2 weeks ago.
Another highlight was Sacrament Meeting, our investigator David brought his friend Chanell to church with him! She really enjoyed it, we were able to give her a copy of the book of Mormon and set up an appointment with her. She lives in our same apartment complex! So that will be exciting, she was way nice.
hmm.. I cant think of much else to add. I scared Elder Choffin really good the other day. I turned off all the lights while he was in the bathroom and opened the back door. when he came out he started walking out to see if i was out back and i jumped out from behind the counter. It was great.
well that’s all i got, my mind is gone for the day. love you all! Stay in one piece.
Megan, take good care of your knee! And i have a question I’ve been meaning to ax you. WHO IS THAT BOY IN YOUR PROFILE PICTURE???
Do I need to come home for a few days to make him disappear? Let me know!
