Mi nuevo companero es Elder Ryan

So transfers were last week and my new comp is Elder Ryan from Brookings Oregon.  I served around him when I was down in Seymour. He has been out about 7 months, so that makes me senior comp.

This week president wanted us to do 2 hours of tracting every day, so we did. And I was constantly surprised at the people we met. We got a new investigator every day, one day when we only had 15 minutes before we had to leave. 

This week was actually pretty busy, we had some pretty packed days, and with transfers we were a couple days short on days we could work, but Elder Ryan and I pumped out 17 lessons in the 4 days we had. So that was super awesome!

We had a good time with Wendy showing her the restoration video. She said she feels something that she can’t explain when she is doing stuff with the "Mormons." She has also been texting Elder Wolverton back home and he has told me that she is super excited and wants to be a Mormon because she knows it is the right path, even when her family might not approve as of now. Today we are going to put her on a date after we give her a tour of the church. She says she will also come to church this Sunday.

We had a lesson with a part member family, and then they came to church this Sunday, and I texted the wife (member) and asked how her husband liked it, and she said she really liked having him there and he really liked church. So that’s cool. 

So if you remember the Molina family, we stopped by them and they let us in. He said he wanted to share a scripture he had found with us. He read a verse out of the bible where Jesus is talking to the disciples about going out and preaching, and how if a city doesn’t listen, to leave them and dust off their feet. So then he continued to say that we haven’t been going over and teaching them because they haven’t been listening, and they would like to listen now and have us over more. So that is awesome!

God is real, God is great, and he loves all his children and wants them all to be happy.
