Week 102

We had our selves a pretty good week here in Quincy. It was exciting and went by really quick. I can't believe that it is once again Monday. We'll this week has been pretty good. Thankfully it hasn't been too hot. And just about every one offers us a water bottle for us to take. It gives them and opportunity to serve us and us more time to talk to them. 

So on Wednesday we had zone conference here in Quincy. We took a good amount of time to set up for it on Tuesday and we made some final touches Tuesday night when the assistants to the president got to town. It made for a fun night because they got to bunk at our apartment so they could be ready for the conference. It was a great meeting. We got to celebrate the 2 year birthday of the mission with some fun trivia. Most of the meeting was focused on finding new people to teach and all the different sources we can turn to to find those people that are being prepared to receive the gospel. We discussed a lot on how we can work with less actives and part member families to find success in our areas. It was a great conference and I enjoyed it much. It was a little stressful afterwords trying to get everything quickly put away and cleaned up but, it got done. 

A cool story we got this week happened while Elder Bonny and I were tracting. The first people we talked to while tracting opened the door and invited us in. Turns out that they have only been here in town for less than a week and are hoping to be moving to a small house out in the boonies this week. They are currently living with some family and the just moved from St. George. (Elder Bonny's stomping ground) They met many members there that gave them a great impression of the church and everyone in the house is interested in learning more. They already have their own copies of the Book of Mormon and  they even have a picture of the St. George temple hanging in the living room. It was such a miracle to lead to them at that specific time. We look forward to the opportunity we will have to teach them more and help them progress toward baptism. We have already been able to meet with them two times since finding them and it has gone great. 

We are looking forward to another great week and plenty to time to keep busy doing missionary work. 

Love Y'all,
Elder Boren
