It's been a pretty crazy and really busy week! I am now in Oskaloosa with Elder Tall, he was in Keokuk for half a transfer when I was in Burlington so we already knew each other and we get along great! He's a hard worker and follows the spirit so it makes life a little bit easier. We're in a branch here but like most branches there are some great members here to support. I've already gotten to know a few of them and they are super nice. Quite a lot has happened since I've been here. We went finding a few times and found 3 possibly 5 new investigators. One of them is a really nice family who invited us in for dinner the other night and we were able to have a great spiritual discussion. On Sunday we had a great surprise when 2 investigators that we thought we would have to drop because they wouldn't return our calls or anything just showed up at church. We had a lesson with them after and the mom, Candy decided to quit smoking and broke her cigarettes right there and threw them away. The son charley is a little slow but is a super awesome really funny kid and is really excited about getting baptized. They'll be baptized at the end of the month. Today we went to Penn college because there is a soccer pick-up game there every Monday and we got talking to Eric a guy from Africa who has been here for 6 months and he said he wants to learn about our church so we have a lesson with him on Wednesday. This area is amazing and there is SO much more potential here! It's so great to be here and be a part of it!
Love Elder Jach-Goates
