This week went by super fast. It is crazy to think that I have already been on my mission for a month, in a way it seems like i just got here, but because I have learned and grown so much it seems like i have been here for ever. We still really busy which is so great. This last week we had 16 lessons and this week we definitely plan on getting over 20. We have 6 investigators with baptismal dates, but three of them we will probably be handing off to the singles ward missionaries this week. We dont really have any time to knock doors, but we talk to about 15 people a day threw OYM's (open your mouth) we have gotten a lot of investigators threw OYMs, it seems to work a lot better than knocking doors. We also get a lot of refferals from the members, which is so great, because they are people who are open and really want to figure out. The gospel is truely an amazing message, lots of the people we teach really want to find the truth and they want answers but they really can't find. Teaching them is so awesome. I love seeing people truely find out for themselves, prayer is so powerfull. We are really just trying to get people to read the Book of Mormon and to pray about it, because when people do that, they really get answers.
I am really enjoying my time here, it is such a great feeling to always be in the service of the Lord. I am so blessed that I dont have to worried all the things that I used to. I can just focus on serving.
We are teaching these three Phillipeno guys they are all around 18 years old. They play basketball with the ward mission leader a couple times a week. A couple days after i got here he wanted us to meet them so one night before they went and played basketball we met them and had a little scripture study with them and the ward mission leaders family. The next week we taught them the first lesson (the resortation) they really liked it. One's name is Tony and he really understood it well, he really could grasp the idea of authority and how important it is to have the priesthood. The next lesson we were planning on teaching them the plan of salvation, but we ended up talking about repentance and baptism, we challenged them all the be baptised and they accepted, their great kids and I am way exited for them. Tony has read a lot into the Book of Mormon I think he is done with 1st Nephi, he really loves it and can feel the power of it. We might not teach them anymore because they are suppose to be in the singles ward, so other missionaries will teach them, but iIam very exited for them.
Thanks everyone for all your prayers, I love you all.
