How's it going? So, that baptism that was supposed to happen two weeks ago is going to happen this Saturday. And, unfortunately, it will only be a single baptism. The second one had to be canceled because Faye has some pretty serious medical issues that are going to prevent her from being baptized for the next little while.
Funny tracting experience:
Us: Hello, we're missionaries from the Church of Jesus---
Guy at the door: I can see that. I'm a republican, and I own guns. *slams door*
It was by far the funniest tracting experience I've had so far. It was pretty great. :)
Being a missionary is the best. That's all. We have a great time here. Some days are hard, but those are hard to remember. The great experiences all stick out. Our message is so, so cool. It makes so much sense, and it can improve people's lives. It also has the benefit of being true.
General Conference was so cool. It is a way different experience watching it as a missionary. I learned a lot. Some of my favorite talks were Elder Christoffersen's, Elder Bednar's, Elder Robbin's, and the two about the sacrament.
This week, we had set a goal to have 100% member present lessons. That means having a member with us whenever we taught any lesson to an investigator. And we did it! 17 member-present lessons, and 0 other lessons. It was hard to coordinate it all and get it arranged, but we got it done.
I'm getting a new companion! Elder Schoenberger is being made a Zone Leader in Walla-Walla, and I'm going to finish training with Elder Asplund. I get to meet him on Wednesday. I'm excited to get to learn from somebody else.
I love you all! The Church is true! Don't forget to write me! ;)
