Wow, wow so much going on! I loved reading everyone discussing how your going to run Christmas presents this year. Ha ha. I think I was laughing so loud that I night of disturbed the people in the library. I would have to go with Marcia’s ADDENDUM A. Good thing I found out what that meant for my companion cause I thought you were using the first initials in our names. But now I understand… anyways that idea is the way to go, I just thought you would also like my opinion even though I can really be a part of the whole present giving thing this Christmas. L I’m really sad about not being able to be there and give away presents. I’m wondering when you all are going to be around so I know when I should call. Sounds like the 28th or 29th? But I don’t know if I can call then. Oh and I think I need a calling card for that. I’ll ask the President on that one.
It’s OFFICAL I have been REJECTED with the whole door slammed in my face after baring my testimony! So dad, I’m not the heartbreaker anymore! It hurts!
They tell us that Less Actives are like investigators. So we re-taught some of the lessons and it makes more sense for them. When we were trying to find Ashley Shockley in that huge apartment building we taught the bishop’s son Mike (less active). He asked us a good question “ why a mission”. Now I’ve gotten that question before but this time I bore my testimony about it and was so incredible to have that warm feeling of making the right choice and sharing it with others. I knew he could feel it and he knew he had to start making some changes. I hope he can be a good influence to our investigator Kevin Sullivan. YES they are roommate that how Kevin got a hold of the Book of Mormon. They also have another roommate that just got off of his mission 2 months shy because he couldn’t hack it anymore (now moving in with a girl). Yeah so that apartment is full of work!
We had are first lesson with Ronnie (a man that we tracked into). He is just great. He called us before the appointment to make sure that we were still coming. It’s funny cause that is our job. Before the lesson he showed us his amazing house that he built with train tracks smothering it. It was pretty cool he had an elevator in him home. The lesson went well and he came to church for all three hours. That’s amazing for their first time at church. Most investigators don’t enjoy fast and testimony meetings. And this one lasted for an hour and 25 minutes. People just keep coming up and the spirit was so strong there. It was neat that we got a mix of all the different age groups also. You know how some testimony meetings are all little kids. This one was evenly done, like they arranged it or something. Second hour was short but good (it was on repentance) third hour was kind of a mess because it was senior missionaries trying to pump up the members to go out on missions. They were mostly talking about info and not the spiritual side. So I’m sure Ronnie really didn’t know what was going on. But never the less he stay and told us he enjoyed it. We have the ward Christmas party and we hope he will be there. I have horrible news this week we have to give this golden investigator to the Elders, cause he live in their area. LSad! It’s ok the elders ran in to a new investigator that was working in their area but lives in our. So we will get to teach Peter. We jokingly promised each other as missionaries that we would baptize these investigators that we are switching if we gave them to one another. Noel Lawson came again to church and him and his wife feed us a lovely healthy dinner. After we talked about the gospel. I guess he has been in contact with the missionaries and not his wife. I guess the wife had a big dislike for Mormons and that why he didn’t attend church. Now we were all sitting around talking about the gospel. cool!
Thank the Fitzgerald for the card and money, which was nice of them…. did you tell them that it was my birthday coming upJ?
Hey everyone keeps asking me where my ancestors are from and I really don’t know much about it, only that some are from Norway. Just wondering if you could send some info this way. Or my genealogy line or tree or something to help us teach.
