Hey! Guys I hit my 1 month mark already.... it's going by way too fast!
I won't tell you too much about the beginning of the week because the first 3 days were spent quarantined in our apartment with strep throat. Yeah it put a huge dent in our goals for the week and it already wasn't looking like we would hit our numbers! Then we finally got to go outbut the STLs wanted to do an exchange in our area that night! So we split up and afterward they told us we were doing a surprise mega exchange all of ! So it wasn't looking good for our goals. But the mega exchange was cool because we were both in tripanionships for the day! Also super random but we were convinced our investigator Tina had.. passed on... for a couple days because we couldn't find her in the hospital or at her house! Turns out she is alive and well, she just got transferred to another hospital! Bad news is she isn't progressing so we have to drop her tonight ):
Yesterday was my favorite day of the mission so far (:
Our investigator Erik came to church!! We tracted into him my firsthere but we have only had the chance to give him one super short lesson. He had basically no prep for what church would be like! To top it all off it was fast ... fast is sketchy her in Bama cause people say the WEIRDEST things hahaha. But most of the testimonies were normal for the most part which was a huge blessing! After the third hour we could tell Erik was way confused so we asked him if we could do a short lesson at the church before he went home! We taught him the restoration. My first time teaching it!!! Crazy huh? I think It went well though and he is really receptive. We talked to him about modern day prophets for a minute and he was so fascinated! He asked us "So does Thomas have a youtube channel?"
Hahahaha. He had a lot of hard questions too but he just loves how much we care about him enough to follow up. We are teaching him again on Wednesday (:
After church we went on splits with a couple of the young women! It went AMAZING. I have never felt so brave knocking doors before. We passed out seven BOMs and had eight bap invites in less than two hours! So many amazing people. I'm excited to follow up with them! Despite only working in our area two days this week, we ended up hitting all of our numbers. This was just proof to me that when you work hard Heavenly Father helps you achieve your goals! I love it here so much and I think it's going by too fast.
HAVE A BLESSED NEW YEAR!
