Week 46: May 15, 2017

First off, I'm so sorry I haven't emailed in a while. The family history center where we email has 2 computers that work well and 1 that kinda works and there are 6 missionaries here. Getting everyone on and emailing is quite the trip on the struggle bus. Anyways,

This past week was really good. We've recently had to drop quite a few investigators the past few weeks but this week, we were able to find a lot of people. One of those investigators is named Bill. We were contacting a referral and he was sitting outside across the street. We started a conversation and he suddenly said, "Yeah I'd love to talk. You guys like Burger King?" He took us out to lunch and we had a good long talk about a lot of things. We invited him to read the Book of Mormon. He kept commenting on how much he respected us. He said we had a really great spirit about us and felt we were good, honest men.

Sorry again for not emailing the past few weeks. I appreciate your love and support and prayers. All is well, all is well.

In conclusion, I got to make really good use of my doggie treats again this week. There was a really big German shepard and a lil dog that were behind a fence. We calmed him down with a few treats and slowly opened the gate to knock the door. My companion went for the door while I held off the dog. The dog would get on edge and then I'd give it another treat.

One of our investigators named Gayle has finally found a place (we think). When we met her, she was super accepting of the gospel. She was getting evicted and wanted to move to Utah. Our amazing member drove her all the way to Utah to help her as well as paid for a week of Motel lodging. He is truly amazing. It was a struggle to get in contact with the ward in Utah to help her but the Relief Society President was able to offer her lodging at a vacant apartment that she rents out. Everything has finally worked out. All is well.

On our way out, the dog started to get a little more and more confident and aggressive. I tossed one final treat down the driveway and then we made for the gate. It had scarcely closed behind us when the dog came growling and barking at the gate again.
