New Transfer, 5 Week Transfer

Well as my subject says, this transfer is the 5-week transfer, so our mission will be shortened by a week so that we will be on the schedule for the MTC.

Anyway, so you all know, Leadership calls were on Monday night. So I've been called as the new District Leader. I've got 8 missionaries in my district including me that I now have to deal with (just kidding!).

Anyway, so mission experience last week: Elder Chaney and I were knocking doors and we knocked on a door, and we heard footsteps and nobody came to the door. So we knock again, and hear a thud, like someone jumped off the stairs. Then this kid opens the door. Pretty sure it was a little boy, but he had long hair and he could have just been a chubby girl, but we aren't sure. Anyway, so we ask, "is one of your parents here?" and he says "Yes." So we say, "Will you go get them?" He says, "no". So we ask again, "Will you please go get one of them?", and he says "no," again. So we just hand him a restoration pamphlet and tell him to give it to one of them. He takes it and shuts the door. It was rather interesting.

Anyway, so this week was alright. We have actually had to drop some of our investigators because we just aren't able to meet with them and can't teach them. So we are just wasting our time there and they are in our records so we will just stop by from time to time. It's kind of sad to have to do that, but that's the way things are sometimes.

But on the positive side, we had lunch with a referral and her mom two weeks ago, and I think I wrote about that last time. Well, we have taught them both twice since last Monday and will be teaching them again today. Our referral will probably be baptized here in the coming month, although we haven't actually extended the invitation. That'll probably happen soon though. Other than that, our week was pretty usual.

Hope all is well at home!
