Well this week has been largely uneventful, as it is the way this area goes. We chop a lot of wood, pack a lot of hay, and mow a lot of grass. We are mostly service missionaries here, but I do have a great miracle.
Our branch president had been working on a dear friend of his for a very long time. They had been neighbors for 7 years but never ever got the missionaries in the door. He is a super sweet guy, but just wasn't interested in taking lessons from missionaries. Well Elder Southworth and I hit it off really well with him at a barbeque, and we became really great friends. He was going in for surgery and Elder Southworth offered to give him a blessing. He declined but later told our branch president how touched he was at the offer. Well to make a long story short we decided to stop by one day to give a birthday card to his wife, and next thing we know, they are both sitting down taking the missionary lessons. The spirit was strong, and they expressed a desire to improve their lives for the better. Our branch president was doing cartwheels in his office when we told him the next Sunday. It was super neat.
The branch has told us that we are the best two missionaries that this branch has ever seen. We are really doing well with the branch and gaining their trust. One family even gave us a referral that they were hanging on to for a special set of missionaries. It’s been really improving here.
Well that's all I have to report this week, hopefully neither of us get transferred this upcoming transfer.
