Member Missionary

February 21, 2016

Dear Family,

Things are going really well with OC. This past week we were able to teach him a few times, and he came to church again. We originally gave him a baptismal date of March 20, but as we've been teaching him, we felt like he is learning and accepting everything well enough that he could be baptized a week earlier. I talked to LG about it to see what he thought, but then the next day when we taught Brother OC, we didn't get a chance to talk about baptism. Brother LG called us that night, saying that he talked to him about it and he's good with getting baptized on the 13th. It was pretty cool, it kind of feels like we have an extra missionary serving with us :)​

I'm not sure what happened, but all of the people we met last week were busy or something this week, so we weren't able to meet any of them. It was actually a pretty slow week, other than OC. Kind of frustrating, especially because we have a ton of investigators and potential investigators right now, more than I've ever had at one time on my mission, but all of them are either hard to contact or hard to meet, so nothing is really working out right now. Maybe it will pick up more in the future, we'll see.

LYH is doing really well. He told me that he hasn't been able to go to church very much since he is busy with work, but he really wants to go to the temple, and he always tells me about these dramatic spiritual manifestations that he experiences from time to time :)

Sorry the email's not as long, not too much happened this week.

Have a great day and a great week!
