all. I'm emailing from the wonderful land of Show Low, Arizona today because we
drove into Zone HQ early this morning for zone pday. Because our ride left for
Show Low at 6:30...
This week was interesting. Not too much happened.
Untill monday! We got 2 new investigators. One is married to a less active lady,
who is only less active because of her job. But we went to his house and met
with him and talked a lot about the church. He told us he likes it and stuff,
but he also see how committed people have to be. That and he's mexican and likes
his beer, According to him. But he did ask us what he would have to do to join
the church. Pretty cool. The other new investigator is a guy we met outside of
an investigators house. He's her friend. Even though she's kinda special... He's
fine, and hopefully pretty solid. A family in town has already been
fellowshiping him. But being themselves, apparently don't want the missionaries
getting a hold of him. They've done this a lot before. There was a girl who was
really really solid, and she came to church every week, but she wouldnt meet
with us because he said she wasnt ready, and she'd let us know. Now she moved.
If we could've taught her we could've baptized her for sure. :(
other interesting thing that happened this week was interviews. President Howes
came up to Show Low and we all got interviewed by him. And trained by our AP's
and Zone Leaders. My interview with president was good. I didnt really know what
to talk about so it was short. But he told me I know what I need to do to
improve as a missionary, so just do it. Which is true. I'm also a little sick
and he asked me why and I said, "oh I get sick every year when it starts to get
cold." Then I realized what I just said... then he said, "oh well then we'll
have to put you some place warm." Shoooot. I might get kicked off the mountains
next transfer! But hopefully not. The Zone Leaders were doing transfer
recommendations this morning when we got to their house, and they asked us what
we wanted and we told them to keep me and Elder Russ in Saint Johns and combine
the areas. So hopefully in a week we'll be in charge of the missionary work in a
whole city... even if its small. hahaha. It would be a lot of fun.
everyone heard about the groundbreaking of the Rome temple! And they revealed
what it will look like!
Here's a link: http://tempiodiroma.chiesadigesucristo.it/en/index.html
pretty cool. I almost wish the architecture was more traditional Italian style.
Like the Vatican and the rest of Rome and stuff... But whatever. It looks good.
That will be a really cool place to go!
