So San Tan zone is pretty legit. Its definitely the toughest zone in the mission. Last week my area had a quarter of the stats for the zone. So we're doing good and trying to help out the rest of the zone. Things are picking up.
Our baptism got delayed again because of the dad. But it will go through this week. Venice is pretty solid.
Isaiah and Marquon, two friends of kids in the ward, go pushed back as well. We just feel that they are not ready and we want them to be more prepared and commited so that they dont go inactive. They're pretty cool. Both of them come from rough family situations and they definitely recognize the effefct the gospel has on their lifes.
We had a slow week this week and didnt get to meet with a lot of our usual people. But we did teach Aubrey, a guy who has been investigating for forever! We were talking to him and found out that no missionary had ever directly asked if he believed in the Book of Mormon.... (I blame sister missionaries) But we had a really good lesson with him. He just wont do what is necessary to get the results he wants!
There is a lot of really cool people in this area. On of the recent converts, Bill Anderson, is a jewelry guy, and tells all the missionaries thatthey can get a wedding ring custom made from him at cost. He's a good guy to know.
We havent had dinners for a few days because the way the dinner callenders got messed up when the wards got switched arround when I came into the area. So we've tried "faith dining" a few times, but it hasnt worked out. On Sunday, we asked this really funny guy in the singles ward what we do if we dont have a dinner, and he freaked out and invited us over. It was a good dinner. He just got back from his mission so he made sure we didnt eat the usual.
Thats all for this week! We're going to Barneys Sports Complex in Queen Creek for P-Day today. Im pretty excited.
