Week 101: Put Your Shoulder to the Wheel
I hope everything is going well for y'all!
Things are going well for us! I'm so glad to be in an area with good companions and good members to finish up my mission. I can honestly say I feel the Lord's support most of the time as I am approaching this new challenge. There certainly are difficult moments, but as always, the best way to overcome your challenges is to put your shoulder to the wheel!
My first week in the area was a little slow, but we roared back thispast week having over 10 lessons and finding a bunch of new people to teach. Earl said he would like to continue with his church until he moves. We will try to get his new address so we can refer the missionaries to him when he finishes moving. We also met a lady We met her on the street on the way to her mail box. She said she was comfortable being Catholic, but then we invited her to learn more, to which she responded by saying, "Hmm...What the heck, why not?" We taught hernamed Emily who has had a lot of interactions with the LDS church. She is neighbors with our bishop. the Restoration two days later, and she even agreed to meet with us again. I'm not sure she is expecting to be baptized, but it was cool that someone was willing to hear us out!
