Tracting in Patuxent


So good to hear from you guys!! Sounds like things at home are busy as usual! Everything here is going pretty well here, me and Elder Johnson are starting to learn how to work with each other, so that is good!

It has been a pretty uneventful week though to be honest. We have been doing a lot of tracting to hopefully get more people in our teaching pool, it is kind of tedious, but if you want to have people to teach, you have to do it. We have seen some good come out of it though, hopefully as we continue to work hard we will see more success.

Our investigators are doing really well, we met with Rob again on Monday, he is trying hard to find answers to his questions in the Book of Mormon, it is just taking a little longer than we had hoped, but that is ok, he still has a good attitude and is diligent. I know that eventually he will find them, even if it takes longer than it does for most people. One thing that we are going to do with him in the upcoming week that should be pretty sweet, we are taking him to a FHE that the stake does every month for Recent Converts and Investigators at the Stake President's house, I was able to go last month with our recent convert in the ward, Bob, and now hopefully everything will work out so that Rob can go!

We were also finally able to get into contact with Donna again, she is still doing good, but she is not going to be able to be baptized this Saturday like we had originally planned unfortunately. She started smoking again, and she can't meet with us this week at all, but she did defend our religion to her sister who has some misconceptions about our church, and we told her to ask her sister what her questions were and write them down so that we can do our best to answer them next time we meet with her. It was very cool to hear that she defended us though, and her reasoning for it was even cooler, apparently her sister was talking badly about our church, and Donna knew that a lot of the things her sister was saying weren't true because of how nice we had been to her. So we still have very high hopes for her!!

Well that is about all I have for you guys this week, hopefully I will have more for you in the next email though!! Oh, and I wrote you guys a letter today, so be expecting something in the mail soon!!! Love you tons!! And sorry for no pictures again haha I will take some soon!
