This week is transfers!
Tomorrow we will go to transfer meeting. Elder Rosequist will be staying here in the Snad Creek Ward, and I will be staying also. In addition, we'll be getting a third companion! That should be fun. It's not unusual for zone leaders to have a third companion. I'll let you know who it is and how it's going next week!
We're still finding! We need to refill our teaching pool, and we do quite a bit of personal contacting. We found four new investigators this week! One of them wasn't home when we went to our return appointment, and another, when we tried to confirm the appointment, told us she'd rather we not come back. Oh well. AAAAGHH. But we do have two new investigators that have yet to blow us off. We taught them the other night outside their apartments (they are neighbors). One of then, Dan, has a family, and the other, AJ, might be a young single adult! that would be pretty stellar!
We taught three lessons to Ashleigh this week! She's doing great. She has made friends with Shaylan and a couple of other members of the ward. Shaylan is such an awesome example! A great member missionary. She's also doing great with her new calling, Gospel Principles Class President. Her responsibility is to conduct the Gospel Principles Sunday School class. But anyway, about Ashleigh; we're still looking forward to her baptism on August 16th!
With transfers, basically every companionship in our zone has someone leaving. So we're gong to have a whole new zone tomorrow! It will be fun. President Murdock is asking the zone leaders to really step up their game and push this mission to its potential. He told me and Elder Rosequist that the Brethren are urging the mission presidents to put the pedal down! So we're doing a lot of planning and work to get our zone up to speed. That takes up some time, but I like being able to do it. we had a mission leader council in Vail on Wednesday, and we learned a lot and shared our vision and goals for our zone. On our way back from the council, we were driving in a big 12-passenger van. It started hailing like CRAZY! We made it through, but Bertha (the van) has a few dents from the adventure. The weather in the mountains is always crazy!
Lots of growing, lots of changing in the mission. things are moving forward, and the work continues to hasten! Don't sleep through the Restoration! I know that this is the Lord's Church, and it is His Restored Gospel. I'm blessed to have this opportunity to teach the wonderful people of Colorado about it! Hoorah for Israel! Choose the right, and have an excellent week!
