So now i have a TON of stuff to tell you. This transfer everything has been going my way i feel and i love it. God is taking very good care of me. To start off i pulled some strings with President Alba and now i am the proud designated driver of a Dodge Grand Caravan 2011 :). I’m a happy missionary. Then this week i started teaching one of Bryan McDonnells former investigators Latisse. She is super sweet, she wants to be baptized but has to wait and has been getting discouraged. But she started reading the Book of Mormon again and went to church this week. I’m trying to have her set up a time to meet with the elders out there. Its still a work in progress online. I also got to teach Bennett. The German foreign exchange student i met in the Bennett Valley area. He is back home in Hamburg. So when he is online at 11pm its like 1pm here. So its perfect! that was one of their main ideas. they did a study and found that most people are online between 9 and 12 pm. While i’m at my apartment. And missionaries generally have nothing to do between 1 and 3. So if we use the internet i can teach people in europe between 1and 3 and be super effective! so our focus is europe. The elders in Asia will be instructed to focus on California and the western Us. Its AMAZING! thats why they put the Apostles in charge. The 8873s (ipads) are amazing but are at a limited use right now because we dont have Iphones to go with them yet. When we get them we will have mobile Wifi so we can be even more effective. As for right now the church buildings, all of which have free wifi, are packed with missionaries. They allow us 3 hours a day of 8873 time. we also use it to download videos with which we can teach with later. I’ve made more people cry with my ipad then the entire rest of my mission put together. When they can see the savior in the Garden its just much more powerful then me telling them. I LOVE THIS THING. Which brings me to my next point… I would like to have one all set up and good to go the moment i step off the plane. I might go through withdrawls without it. And you cant tell me its bad cause The Prophet gave it to me. HAHA We have been teaching people in the “real world” too. Thats our focus is to make sure we balance out the work and make sure to do both. We picked up a few new investigators. But they arent as cool as my online ones. One is named bobby, i think i told you about him last week. Hes an old boxer who says the most awkward stuff ever. But hes a good family man, and loves his kids. We are going to introduce him to some members tomorrow. We had a kid named David come to church yesterday. He lives in our apaprtment ocmplex an we see him everyday. He even does morning exercise with us sometimes. He has read the bible 15 times and has been reading the book of mormon a bunch. He didnt have church clothes though so i traded him some pants for a baseball jersey, and elder makoni gave him a suit and shirt that didnt fit him. Hes a funny kid. He’s 15. We gave his little brother a bom too and he loved it. The parents like us a lot but arent too interested in it for themselves yet. So keep praying for them. I’ve also been adding more people on facebook. Make sure they dont think i’m going disobedient. I got that from Elder Maryott already so i sent him a disgruntled email. But its all good now. I’m doing good, trying not to get trunky. I have my last temple trip on thursday. My eclesiastical endorsment is done. hmmm what else is there. Emily lasley gave me a sweet friendship bracelet which is now on my side satchel.
Teaching in Chicago,…and Germany! 9/2/2013
Thats about all i got. Life is good, facebook is awesome. As a zone we found twice as many new investigators and recieve at least 5 times as many referrals as we normally do. Keep up the good work helping us out! feel free to tell anyone to add me online. And tell people to visit mormon.org. Its sweet. Love you all! take a picture of the chain!
O side story about last Pday. I went to the air museum. And i got a picture in the cockpit of a P51 mustang while wearing aviators and holding a book of mormon. Greatest Picture Ever! But you wont see it on facebook for a while. I also saw there one of the f15s that was a first responder at 911. and an f14 (my favorite) so its been a good week. Love you all!
