Another Baptism date set for November (week 66)
We have had ourselves a pretty good week. It seems like it went by way too fast. So here's a quick run down of our past week her in Wenatchee:
Monday we had a great evening full of teaching people. We were very close to exceding our goal for lessons that day and thankfully we were able to settle for hitting them. We were also able to have a member couple out with us to teach one of our investigators. It was great as we were able to get some feed back from the husband who returned from his mission not to long ago.
Tuesday nothing too exciting happened. We got to walk around a bunch and we were able to talk to some really great people.
Wednesday I was on exchanges with Elder Aguirre. We had an awesome time and he was able to help me out with talking to everyone. Sometimes I justify myself not wanting to talk to certain people. I'm going to work on being better at that. We have to give everyone a chance. We also had our district council and we discussed the importance of faith in missionary work. One thing that stuck out is that we need to pray in faith and have more specific prayers. Because specific prayers get specific answers.
Thursday we had interviews with President and Sister Lewis. Interviews are always so great since it is an opportunity to learn and discus our improvement. It was a pretty long morning since interview times very frequently run over. It was also a very rainy day. I don't think it stop raining the whole time. It felt like we were in Seattle.
Friday we were able to do some service for a member. We helped move somethings out and fix up some other things around her house to get it ready for a viewing. She gave us some pizza that week cooked up and had during our weekly planning. (Hence the pizza in the picture)
Saturday We did some even more walking. Shouldn't be too surprising seeing that we have a walking area. We were able to find this super prepared kid from El Salvador. He let us right in and told us of how his dad had been receiving the missionary lessons back when they were in El Salvador. We taught him the restoration and at the end he asked us when we could come back to talk to him some more. It helped me see that we need to be ready to yield to the prompting of the spirit and when we do so the Lord will yield us to those that are prepared.
Sunday we had another great member present lesson. We were able to invitee our investigator to baptism and she committed to work towards the 12th of November. It is super exciting seeing people want to progress and wanting to follow the example of Jesus Christ.
We are hoping for another really good week and hopefully y'all have a great week too.
