Isn't Spring Supposed to be here again?

It's Monday again! 

It's been a pretty good week. Me and Elder Munroe are finally figuring this place out. There is a ton to be done, we just need to do it right. A lot of part member families and less actives that are on the edge. We were able to have 5 investigators at church and we put someone on date for baptism this week as well. We are hoping to see a few by the end of this transfer.

The members seem pretty excited as well. I guess change is good every once in a while. 

As for new experiences, we had one this week. I was officially chased by a dog for the first time on my mission. Well, two dogs. We were knocking on a former investigators door and his yard is closed in by 4 1/2 foot tall fence all around his house. So we closed the fence behind us and knocked. Well not long after that a Pitbull and Rottweiler come tearing around the corner looking pretty mad. So me and Elder Munroe ran for our lives and jumped his fence like we've never jumped before! After wards we couldn't stop laughing cause it felt like we were in a corny Mormon missionary movie or something like that. But really though, those dogs were out for blood. 

We also had a pretty awesome lesson with an investigator this week. She grew up Christian but has a hard time believing in what she grew up in. As we progressed in the lesson she opened up and told us that she was just scared that she was questioning the things her parents taught her because it’s all she knows, but she feels something is missing from it. We were able to reassure her that questions are good and that some of the things she was taught aren't entirely true about the nature of God and the gospel message. She completely understood the great apostasy and was really open to reading the book of Mormon to get some new knowledge. God is preparing people for the truth my friends!!

With that, I would like to say that this is the work of God and that he lives and loves us. This is his church that he established from the beginning so that all might have the opportunity for eternal life. I know it’s true! Have a good week, I love you all!
