Transfer week (week 92)

So this past Saturday we got our transfer calls and Elder Klossner and I are going to be staying together for another transfer here in Quincy. Elder Davis one of our flat mates is going to be transferred to the Selah area. This is his first time getting transferred. We are looking forward to some more great fun this transfer and lots more people to teach the gospel to.

This past week was great. We had plenty of opportunities to go and provide service for people. One Tuesday we went to the food bank and the the assisted living place. Then Wednesday we went to go work on pulling a stump out of the ground. Thursday we went to habitat 4 humanity and helped a member build a chicken coup. On Friday we finished the chicken coup and on Saturday we went and helped a non-member with cleaning up their yard. And it looks like we might have even more opportunities for service this upcoming week. I love being able to do service for people especially when I get to work with my hands. 

We have been having a great time working with our investigators and they are progressing really well. We make sure to keep in good contact with them and really make sure the understand the purpose of everything we share with them and everything we commit them to do. Most people will not keep their commitment if the don't see why they should. We have taken a good amount of time when we first meet these people to set expectations and help them see that it will take effort on their part. We also make an effort to invite them to be baptized in the first lesson so they can see where all of this is leading. We have seen that it has had a great outcome. 

We had a great Sunday and we had two investigators at church. One of them even brought a friend with them. It was great being able to have them there. It would have been great if they could have stayed for the classes but, I'm sure they had a great time and really felt the spirit. After Church the Relief Society had us translate for a meeting they had on visiting teaching. They had a great lunch there and we got to have some of it. Recently we have been getting fed really well. We have somehow ended up with lunch a lot of days this past week. 

We are looking forward to having another great week and I hope you do too.

Love Y'all,
Elder Boren

Orchards by the golf course 

                    The course was surrounded by construction but, we still had a good time
