March 30, 2015

Hey Y'all!

This week was really good for me and Elder Smith! There was no food challenge involved this week, which is good. We were able to receive a lot of referrals this week from the Spanish Missionaries. So we have been trying to get in contact with them this week. One of the hardest things with the referrals is getting in contact with them. Especially if we are only given a name and an address. Because we could try all sorts of times of the day and they could be working those hours. So it can be tricky to get in contact with them. We were able to contact one guy who's name escapes me right now, but he seemed way cool and could possibly become a solid new investigator this week.

On Wednesday we went to a mission meeting where they installed trackers in the cars. The Church is doing this because 18-21 year olds are supposedly crazy drivers sometimes and either get tickets or like to try and see what a Toyota Carolla or Chevy Cruze can do. I know weird right? So these trackers can tell whether your speeding, driving aggressive, and if you have your seat belt off. Obviously it doesn't affect Elder Smith and I, but the other missionaries that drive us around weren't too excited about it. But I guess from what they've said it's not as bad as what they thought it was going to be. 

So as for our investigators, we haven't been able to get in contact with Sean and Lauren this past week. We are hopefully going to be setting up something for later this week with them. They have kinda disappeared since we gave them a church tour. So hopefully we can have a good spiritual experience this week with them. We were also able to see Chirsti this week. On Sunday, one of the wards in our area is putting on a devotional before General Conference and Glenn Beck is going to be speaking there. So we invited Christie to come to that and it seems like she is wanting to come to that. 

We were also able to see Kristie, our recent convert this week and she is doing really great! We were supposed to have a family history night on Friday with her and Joe and help them get going on the Family Tree, but it ended up not working out with the family we were going to do it at. So we went over and talked with her. She had some questions about the Spirit and being able to recognize it and it ended up being a really great experience. I was nervous because I was with another missionary who doesn't talk too much and is really shy. So I was worried how the conversation would go with him there. But it went really great!

This week was have our first choir performance for Easter on Friday in Fort Worth. I'm pretty excited for that! I'm also looking forward to General Conference. It's pretty weird that next Conference I'll be watching it from home. Ha! I'm sure my family will get trunky from that comment. But that's all to report on from this past week. Thanks for the emails and have a great week!!
