March 7th, 2012
Everything is going great!  Transfers are tomorrow that's pretty scary.  I'm really nervous about my new comp and whether he'll be a hard worker or not we've been working so hard here and have started seeing a lot of success.  If someone who doesn't work comes in he might mess it all up.  President Jergensen said that my new comp is full of energy and feels like he will be good, so i hope he is right.   Me and Elder Adamson have really been getting along and having fun together kinda sucks to see him go.  This area has grown so much in the last 6 weeks it's crazy we actually have a teaching pool and haven't really had to do any tracting which is awesome.  We tract like one day a week for an hour or 2.   We had another awesome Sunday.  Another random guy came to church and we're going to teach him this week or next he said he'll definitely be back on Sunday!  Ha sweet!  Then one of the members called and said that they were just at a friends house and they said they would like the missionaries to come over and teach them so we called him and set up an appointment for tonight excited for that.  This area is exploding and Elder Adamson is bummed that he's leaving.  Paul is excited for his baptismal date and is still doing great.  His cousin Heather (the Jehovah's Witness) is still taking lessons from us and told us that she thinks we are really nice and genuine people she was going to come to church with Paul on Sunday but her sister (also a JW) made her go to church with her.   That's ok we will keep teaching her and I feel like it could easily lead to baptism.   Her husband doesn't seem too interested and won't sit in on the lessons, but he hears most of what we teach her so that's good.   As for the Smith family we still haven't been able to get a lesson with them but we're still trying.  Luis pretty much doesn't want anything to do with us.  He still won't answer the door when we can hear him inside.  We knocked 5 times one day and he still didn't answer, but that's ok maybe one day he'll except lessons.   The Tibbotts son had a heart attack last week so we haven't been able to see them lately.  Their son is doing ok now and we should be able to go see them next week. Faith is still not progressing and her mom had  Sunday off and still didn't come to church so we don't know what's going on there, but we're still teaching her and she's good when we're there so we just need to figure out what's going on.   Still loving being on a mission! Remember when you're in the service of your fellow man you're only in the service of your God.  Mosiah 2:17
