Week 3 complete
This week we found a new investigator. His name is Sam, he is from Puerto Rico, divorced, and has 2 kids - 7 & 10. We contacted into him and he told us that he wanted more in life and wants to know what to teach his kids. He is so prepared for the gospel. We had two lessons this week and a stop by. On the second lesson we committed him to baptism on August 6th.
Brother Whitman was out of town this week, but he said he would pray about his date. Cody is doing good. His mom and sister are members but they need the lessons too. Whenever we give him a high five he just dabs instead. Haha.
Mike and Jordan are in the process of moving and they work so much so we didn't teach them this week. but we went over to help them move.
Have I told you about Everett? If I haven't he is a middle aged man that has had a lot of trials in life. Heavenly Father led us to him two different times this week(unplanned). He is a contractor and when we were finding we ran into him at the house he was working on. We taught him the Plan of Salvation and committed him to baptism on August 13th. However, he doesn't live in our area so we had a pass off lesson with the Elders in Clarks Creek. It went really well and the next time we see Everett will probably be his baptism.
The 4th of July was a little rough. We didn't have any appointments and no one wanted to talk to us because of the holiday. We didn't feel very motivated but we were invited to the Paynes for a BBQ. A big chunk of the ward was there and the Paynes live on a horse farm. It was so cool. They had horse rides for the kids, delicious food, and fireworks. It was the coldest 4th of July I think I have ever experienced, but it didn't rain. It was such a fun night. I felt like I was in the Hannah Montana movie or something.
Also there is a lady in our ward named Gramma Conine. - she makes the best salsa. One night we were contacting in the area and had to use the restroom so we stopped at her house. She is the most crafty person ever. Her craft room puts Michaels to shame. She has a garden in her backyard and makes all kinds of jam and salsa. Her salsa is called sweet and sassy. She let us pick out a jar of salsa and jam. When we got back to the apartment we ate the WHOLE jar of salsa. IT WAS AMAZING!
