Week 65 - Bowling Green

Hola mi familia!

This week has been pretty awesome!

To start off, the family that we found that speaks a dialect from Guatemala, they are now on baptismal date for the 16 of December. So that’s the mom and her two daughters. The dad hasn’t sat in on a lesson and it doesn’t sound like he really wants to, but we will continue inviting him in. They are great, but they weren’t able to make it to church yesterday so that was sad.

The two girls that we were teach that had questions about the prophet, we found out the older one is moving back to El Salvador, so we gave her the way to get in contact with missionaries there and hope she does. And we haven’t gotten in contact with the younger one recently. So not much happened there.

On Tuesday I went one exchanges with Elder Moran to his area, so we got to knock doors and bike all around south BG. Then that night we did a live church tour on Facebook and we have had awesome results from it. It’s already at 18 thousand plus views, and we are hoping that at least one of those was a non member. If so it was a success. If you haven’t shared it, do it and se what your non member friends have to say about it. The ones that comment/like it are the ones that are interested, just if you were wondering:) also because we are Mormon famous now, I’ll be signing autographs for my fans on Saturday, haha;)

Last night we had a missionary fireside with the youth from both wards here. It was like a Q&A for us missionaries. It was super fun and now all the youth love the missionaries even more. Now they will be good sources of finding:)

That was basically it for the week, can’t wait for thanksgiving next week! It’s going to be a crazy day because it’s also transfer day.

Love y’all!

Week 64 - Bowling Green and the Hammock

Hola mi familia!

So this week was great. We went on exchanges after zone conference and I went with Elder Hamblin in the Spanish area. And it was a great night. We found a new family to teach. It is a little hard to teach them because she speaks a dialect and speaks broken Spanish. So there are certain words that we have to explain, but she is very humble and wants to learn. So we are teach her and her two daughters. The husband had been there, but doesn’t want to really sit in on lessons. We also began teaching a couple other investigators this week. One is in college and the other is in high school. During the lesson, after teaching about Joseph Smith, we asked what it would mean to them to know there was a living prophet today. And they said everything, there would be no more confusion for them. So they are super cool, it’s just hard to get face to face meetings with them because of school.

We got stuck in our apartment from 6-9 on Halloween so the 4 of us played signs. It was super hard but also super fun. I’ve also been able to start sleeping in my hammock every night again. It’s the best sleep ever.

We had zone conference on Wednesday, so we got up at 430 to get there by 720, then we were there till 3, then had interviews with President after. So we didn’t get back home till 730. It was a long day, but a great day for learning.

Otherwise this week just flew by. We got another set of senior missionaries here in BG. So now we have a total of 12 missionaries here. It’s a blast.

Love y’all!

Week 63 - Bowling Green

Well this week was another crazy week! We went on exchanges with the zone leaders and that was super awesome. We had the best lesson I’ve ever been in. The guy established our purpose for us and he was just super awesome. He has such a sincere desire to know if it’s true, he’s just making sure that the feelings aren’t from memories of reading it with his ex-girlfriend and that they are really from god. But the member present was just perfect and the spirit was super strong. We also had a few good experiences with street contacting while we walked to tract. I learned a few really good things during that exchange.

Wednesday night we had the ward fall festival and it was great, there were a lot of non-members there. Sadly none of our investigators were able to come. But we were able to visit with a lot of less actives, so I thought it was a successful night.

Nothing else really happened this week, it got super cold and rainy so it was a slow moving week, but we made it!

Happy Halloween y’all!
