This week has been pretty long and a lot of appointments fell through.we had a lesson with our investigators Joe and Brandon. Also we did some hardcore tracting and had no success. we went ham trying to find all of the people that we haven't been able to contact recently and we were able to get a lot of things set up and get a couple lessons in. The next day we taught some lessons with our investigator Brody and a recent convert Tanya. We also got to see George and teach him a lesson. It's always good to see George and he has been doing great since his baptism. We had interviews with President Russell and that was way awesome. It's always good to sit down with the Mission President and talk with him. we basically did finding all day because things fell through all night and nothing worked out so we sat down and made a route to conserve miles and contact all our potentials so that's what we did every time we didn't have a lesson. we met with our Branch Mission Leader in his home to discuss the investigators we had. Our Branch mission leader is a really nice guy but he's kind of super less active. His sister was there and she is very much not my most favorite person because she treats Brother Thompson like dirt because of his beliefs and she always tells us how stupid we are. I just about had enough because she kept talking about how churches are evil and miracles don't really happen. I was about ready to go full on Joseph Smith in jail status on her but Brother Thompson told her to leave us alone. Besides that we taught a couple lessons and did some more Potentials work. was super awesome because for one thing I love the Sabbath! for another thing George got confirmed which was so great! I LOVE George. Another thing that was awesome was it was the Relief Society’s turn to speak in church so not only was that awesome but we taught the Relief Society lesson during third hour about Joseph Smith. It was really great and the ladies in the branch are super awesome and had such a special spirit. That night we had a lesson with Shauna and she said she really liked the lesson we had and is super excited to be baptized the 26. GUESS WHAT! JOE CAME TO CHURCH! That was so great! he was 30 minutes late because he thought it was but it was really hahahaha.
So yeah on top of all that last night we got a new investigator which was great. Her name is Rebecca and she is way interested in the church. So great. Well hey love you all. sorry if this email is kind of crappy we are in springfield today so we are partying with the zone. I'm loving my mission and I'm so grateful to serve!
