An Eventful Week

It has been a very eventful week. But I will start with the good news. We were finally able to have another lesson with Kimo. We had not had a lesson with him for about 10 days cuz he had a bunch of finals, and the last time we had taught him we taught him the Word of Wisdom and he was not sure if he could commit  to live it, so we committed him to pray about it, and pray for courage to commit to live it so he could be baptized. So we were pretty nervous for the lesson cuz we knew it would kinda be make or brake. We met with him on Tuesday, and we asked him about his experience praying about living the word of wisdom, and he simply responded "I promised God that i would follow all his rules." It was awesome! He is getting baptized this Saturday. I am so exited for him. Kimo is so great, he has not missed a week of church since the day we knocked on him door, even during finals. Chris did not come to church so we are going to have to reset his baptismal date. 

So on Tuesday we had Zone Leader council in Eugene. It was really good, the mission is making some big changes. From now on we are no longer going to be reporting tracting hours and OYM's which is how many people we talk to. These are two numbers we have  collecting but that are not in Preach my Gospel. The reason why we are taking these out is so people will focus more on finding new investigators than getting tracting hours. We really should be tracting just as much. Wednesday we did exchanges with the AP's and Elder Howard came with Elder Brian and I. It was awesome to be with him. He is doing a great job as a AP. 

Saturday was the Home opener for OSU. They played Wisconsin who from what i hear was a high ranked team, and everyone thought they were going to destroy OSU. But OSU beat them, so that was pretty exiting for the city of Corvallis. The only problem with the whole thing was that it was a really hard proselyting day. In the morning we tried just going out and talking to people, and everyone was on their way to the game and did not really want to talk to us. And during the game no one was home, and after the game everyone was partying. So it was kinda a rough day, and we did not have any appointments so we went finding and visiting Less Actives, and no one was really home or wanting to talk. So next game day we are probably going to go someone else area and do splits during the day. Next week is transfers, we will be getting transfer calls on Saturday, it will be interesting to see what happens. Probably one of us will go and one will stay, I guess we will see. 

Well I am out of time, Love you guys! Pray for Kimo
