Happy Pioneer Day!

Happy Pioneer Day! Tomorrow!

Mmph.  Yesterday Patrick and Morgan, our two investigators with dates for July, didn’t come to church and we don’t know why yet.

Interviews on Thursday went over as usual so we showed up late to our member dinner.  The mom of the family was stressed out because she had to leave for a Relief Society activity afterwards and us being late had slammed her schedule.  When we found out that the Mom was planning on riding her bike to the church so her husband could use the car to drive us home, we lied and said our apartment was close enough that we could just walk there.  It wasn’t hard, we just spent the rest of the night walking home.  Because of the time of day we did get to talk to lots of people on the street which was nice. The victory of the day was our last stop at a potential investigator’s house who we were able to make contact with and set up a return appointment!

Probably the best thing that happened this week was Justin Morris, a new investigator we have with a baptismal date for the 12th of August.  He was referred by his friend in DC.  At first we thought we wouldn’t be able to contact him because the outside doors of his apartment complex are usually locked which makes it impossible to knock people’s actual apartment doors, but to our joy we found that the locks on the doors had been removed!  He is a young single guy who just went through a divorce, a lot like Patrick.  He loves what we’ve taught him so far and his only concern is getting work off on Sundays.

Lexi, the unbaptized child I found with the Spanish speaking Elder on exchanges has a date for August 5th.  We got in with the family and are making progressing getting them back into activity.

The church is true!  Love,

      Elder Emmett Florence

    Your experiences just seem to reinforce the maxim that things have a way of working out. I think that if we follow the admonition of Paul in 1st Thessalonians and give thanks in EVERYTHING, we find that even adversity brings unexpected blessings.

    • In my Work with TNT the improv principle is called “say yes and” (turn the other cheek). It affirms that all is well and helps us trust in that higher power. Love this stuff. Thanks for commenting.
