September 14, 2015

This week...a lot has happened...we got transfer letters first off,
 and I am staying in the area..and training a new elder. I'm one of three doing this out of all the newer missionaries. As part of the call, obviously I take over the area and am "senior companion". I think I'm going to have a rude awakening regardless how involved I think I am in the companionship because in like a day, I'm going to have to start doing EVERYTHING. I'm pretty nervous, considering I've only been out for about six weeks (a lot of time people don't listen or take seriously newer missionaries). I'm gonna do my best to stay on top of things tho. We have a new game plan for the ward as far as missionary work and I think it will be very effective if we can put it to action.

Other than transfers we have been fairly busy with appointments so there hasn't been a lot of time to tract. We have three progressing investigators who should be on date for baptism within the next week and it will be on me cause Clanton will be out of here. It's sweet to see some hard work start to pay off.

At the beginning of the week I gave my first two blessing! A less active asked us to bless her children for the new school year on the spot so I was pretty nervous, but you could definitely feel the spirit and it went well as far as me not screwing up or anything haha.

We have talked to a few people that want to convert us to "science" and think God is as real as leprechauns and the Book of Mormon is no better than reading out of a Harry Potter book, so they are kinda fun to talk to.

We had a cool service project where I got cut up and stuff (for the ward) cause we were taking out blackberry bushes. Decent week!

This next week will be interesting. We have been doing tons of service lately too. Service is one of if not the best way to show Christlike charity to others. Through service our love and appreciation for God and the people we serve increases and our understanding for true happiness grows. If you haven't already seen it, look up the "lift"Mormon's pretty cool. I can promise you guys serving others will bring you closer to Christ and with that , would invite you to look for opportunities to serve those around you, whether it been a project or just a smile. Love you guys!
