This week we went through a lot of follow up from the 9 to 9 tracting experience of last week. All throughout the week Elder Pace and I made an effort to head out and reach every follow up appointment that was set. What made this experience different, however, is in what happened following the contacts. We would knock on their doors and for the most part we would get non answers or people who weren’t really interested, but as we would leave the appointment we seemed to always run into someone else who was interested in the Gospel. It is always amazing to see the Lord bless us for giving our best efforts, even when it appears initially that those efforts aren’t working.
Teaching wise, we have finished going through the lessons with the White family and the next step is a baptismal interview he has this upcoming Tuesday. We went through the questions with him and he is more than prepared to be baptized in a few short weeks. It has been an amazing time getting to make such good friends with this family and help them towards this covenant. The other part member family we are working with has ran into a few troubles regarding further medical and other issues, but we are still working with them and trying to help them see how the Atonement can bless their lives.
Saturday and Sunday were pretty normal, outside of talking to a guy who seemed a bit crazy. I have to say, certain Oregonians have, well, interesting ideas about life, haha. When we met him he wanted us to completely explain the book of Acts to him and wanted us to be his followers. That’s not happening. He did take a Book of Mormon and said he would read the whole thing though. That night we also delivered thank you notes to a few different members who have fed us and helped us out. And that brings us to today. Later today we will be hiking up Spencer’s Butte near Eugene as a zone and doing normal p day things.
Sharing our pure testimonies of Christ is truly one of our greatest duties in life, and I challenge whomever reads this to take some time to ponder their testimony and to share it with someone else. Thank you for all of the support!
