|Me and Elder Thompson!|
Well, this week was pretty darn awesome! Just a whole lot of change, really good change. We talked about our goals for this month as a zone on Friday and the whole attitude of the zone has changed. They are so pumped to get the work going!! I felt so happy with that change. Everyone this last transfer were pretty un-focused and not wanting to do a whole lot. Now we have a quite a few new missionaries that are full of energy and we are going to do so much more stuff this month. We have already found half as many new investigators this week as we did in the whole last month. So we are starting to really do some good work as a zone. It is awesome.
In our own area, I just have to keep talking about the Vargus family. I really have never seen a more prepared and open and amazing family as this one in my whole mission. They are reading the Book of Mormon, praying, and they have attended church three weeks in a row now. They literally tell us each lesson how much they love the gospel and ask us questions about what they read. They also ask us stuff like "After we get baptized, do you guys keep coming to visit us?" To which we respond "Um YEAH! Of course we will!" Really, just pure awesomeness.
We found a bunch of people this last week, and we just have good stuff going. Still lots of rejection from people, but we just keep going on and talking to people. My companion Elder Thompson is a super solid guy, and he helps me open my mouth and just keep going till the end of the day. It was a good week.
This gospel is true. It simply is. I have never been so convinced of it in my life. There simply is nothing better.
