September 7-21

Sept. 7, 2015
So this week our investigator with the baptismal date, Ja'coleman Green, came to church this week. He showed up late and almost missed sacrament meeting but he stayed for the rest of church. There is not a lot to do on p-days here in Cairo, so I have decided to make a suit of armor out of cardboard and duct tape. So that will keep me busy on p-days for a while.

So this week was a rough week. All of our appointments fell through. One of our investigators dropped us, and we haven't had solid communication with any of our investigators for 2 weeks. So most of this week has been tracting, so not a lot has happened this week. The weather is starting to get better, it is cooler in the morning, but during the day it is still in the high 80's

So not a lot happened this week, it was filled with mostly tracting. On Saturday we had service at a members house we were planning on digging a trench for an underground fence but when we got there they said they would rent a trencher. So we ended up moving some bricks and we helped them plan out where the fence would be laid. But the good thing was they fed us breakfast when we got there and they fed us lunch before we left. Yesterday we saw two bunnies. Also we had a lesson with Ja’coleman and he said that he wants to bring his whole family to church. If he does, our primary will triple in size.

Fantastic week

This has been a pretty fantastic week.  To start it off, on Tuesday we had a half mission conference and we had 2 70's there. That bring the total that I have met to 4 70's and one apostle. The 70's that came were Elder Neilson and Elder Stanfill. Elder Stanfill will be giving a talk in general conference Saturday afternoon session.
So we picked up two new investigators this week, so that brings the grand total for this transfer to six new investigators.  The next thing is we had stake conference this week so we drove down to Tallahassee and stayed the night with our zone leaders and drove back on Sunday. When we got home we had dinner and decided to go and see one of our investigators that lives close to us. we got in and had a great lesson with him. we were reading 3 Nephi 11 and we got to a part where it said to be baptized and be saved or no and be dammed and the spirit nudged me to extend a baptismal invitation.  It wasn’t the normal "will you follow the example of Jesus Christ" I just asked "do you want to be baptized" and he opened up and we now have a date set for October 31, and yes I know that is Halloween.
Also the hurricane that is coming this way shouldn’t do much up here but we have been told to have are 72 hour kits prepared and our cars topped off with gas.
Success Academy is no1 in the nation?  That is so cool.
