July 30, 2012

I can't believe that July is basically gone.  It's crazy how time flies!
Well, since last week we had our first interviews with Pres. Ashton, and he told us to find new people by going to the recent converts, less actives, part member families, and young single adults.  So we've been doing a little bit of looking to find all these people in our 2 wards.  But it's totally working.  We are finding people that would normally tell us no in the street, or even if we knocked their door, but because we're asking about their neighbors it gives us something else to talk about.  
We've started teaching a less active sister who just moved here a few weeks ago, but had been bringing her boyfried to a different chapel.  They got confused on which building they needed to attend.  But we were able to stop by and see them this week.  She really wants to come to church, and he is very open to reading the Book of Mormon and finding out if it's true.  Things are just starting to pick up, and we've got some really good investigators right now, but we are still doing a lot of looking.  Only now our looking is a lot more successful.  So that's good.
I feel like there is more to talk about, but I can't reallly think of anything.  Looking for people in this new way is really about all we've done this week. Although we also got to eat with English members this week.  Which is always fun.  Mexican food sure is tasty, but I think we get a little more variety with the English members.  Plus some members like to make the missionaries their guinea pigs when it comes to new dishes.  
Well....I love you all!
I guess if I think of something else I'll let you know, but that's it for now.
Love, Amber
