This week was really fun!
Tuesday we had our Trainer Trainee meeting that it felt like I was just at the other week with Elder Leavitt. It was really good. We had a lot of trainings...President spoke mostly about the trainees and not being homesick and some other stuff. But we role played a lot, practiced teaching the restoration and inviting someone to pray, read, and be baptized. Elder Montandon is improving on a lot of things. Our lessons are getting a lot better. It's been pretty neat seeing him from lesson to lesson and how he improves.
Then on Wednesday we had zone meeting. We had a couple really good trainings on teaching repentance, and then baptizing, and how to begin teaching.
A lot of our investigators are super busy and had some pretty rough things come up. One couple, the husband fell down a flight of stairs and broke some ribs. Then that same day they got in a wreck, hit and run. So they are set back pretty far. Then our other investigators got robbed and their house flooded. It's been crazy and kinda rough. We have had to do so much finding lately because all of our investigators are busy or out of town.
We were able to find 3 new investigators though which was nice. We were going to find one of our new investigators from a couple weeks ago named Alex. He wasn't home so we knocked on his neighbor's door--wasn't home...Knocked on his other neighbor's door and before we could say anything he let us in. We went in and told us he had talked with missionaries a while back. We were able to teach him the restoration and Elder Montandon killed it. It was crazy how much he has grown since his first lesson.
What else do you want for Christmas?
I love the penguin ties those are so sweet.
Have you had any cool experiences with #Light the World?
Not really, we just have been serving at Habitat a lot lately and the guy we work with says he gets emails a lot asking who we asking who we are. It's nice seeing good things come from doing simple service.
How is the weather there?
It's FREEZING! it's supposed to get really cold soon, but it was really warm today which was really weird, it was like 60 almost. And when it rains and it's cold, it freezes and the whole city shuts down. No one works.
What week do you ride bikes?
We have a car this week. We switch every week from car to bike.
Do they do anything cool for the holidays there?
Not really, just Christmas like the west pretty much .
Is there anything unique about North Carolina that is different from here?
Yeah there's a lot of trees, and Cook Out which is a fast food place. The weather is a lot different. The people are different.
Love you mom, sorry it was a little short today
Happy to see you soon!
