Working with Members
College Park Zone
How is everyone? Well things here are going well! This week was pretty sweet! There has been a huge push in our mission lately to work with our members, the only problem with that is they don't really give a whole lot of direction to us as to how to go about doing that, but this week Elder Stoor and I realized that one of the main set backs that we have with trying to work with members is infrequent contact with them.
Really the only time that we see them is usually at church, and then if they have us over for dinner, that's about it. So we started trying this week to try and make appointments with them, to come and teach them and their families on a regular basis, and we had some really good experiences!
In fact one of the families that we talked with on Sunday told us to come back the next day, and that once school was over we could come over to their home and teach them a couple of times a week! So we are trying to get things off the ground there, but we are pretty excited about it!
We also met a cool lady this week who has a nephew that converted to the church and is now on a mission, and she wanted to learn more about the church. We were over there the other night, and she had a bunch of questions for us, and wants us to come back. And we have a few other people that we haven't had the chance to really teach much to yet, but we are hoping to meet with them this week!
Other than that, I don't really have a whole lot for you. Thanks for figuring everything out with school for me! You guys are the best!!! I can't even tell you! Love you guys! And have a good week! By the way, I might be sending some stuff home soon! just fyi... Love you!
