"Ammon said unto him: I am a man; and man in the beginning was created after the image of God, and I am called by his Holy Spirit to teach these things unto this people, that they may be brought to a knowledge of that which is just and true; And a portion of that Spirit dwelleth in me, which giveth me knowledge and also power according to my faith and desires which are in God."

E-mail #2 of 2012 1/9/2012 Week 90

Hola familia!

L. moved to London

I can't remember if I told y'all this last week, but I got the dear elder. That was really nice what sis. H. said. J. is a stud.

We had a pretty good week. We lost the car on Wednesday. We were supposed to lose it on Tuesday, but it was super cold that day, so they let us keep it one more day. It has been pretty exciting on the bikes. I still need to get a picture of me on the bike.

I already told y'all about P. Well, yesterday he and another member brought a non member to church! His name is P. We are going to see if we can start teaching him soon in addition to P's daughter.

While we were at church yesterday, the first counselor in the branch and another member were telling us that L. moved to London, TN. I was confused and kind of stressing out because we had talked with him not too long before that, and he said he moved to somewhere in Knoxville. During sacrament L. called, and we got more info on where he's living. The name he gave us before really was the name of the mobile park that he's living in. So, with the info he gave us we were finally able to find it on the map. So, we will be seeing him asap (we have the car this week).

Yesterday we taught the gospel principles class for the Spanish branch. I hope that it got P.'s attention and that he will have us over often, so we can teach and baptized their daughter (still not sure about name or age, but apparently she's at least eight).

We had quite a good lesson with S. and K. L, the part member family that we recently found. First they fed us a pretty legit dinner. Then, we had a lesson on the restoration. It went well and S. accepted a soft commitment! The thing is that they're in the National Guard I believe it is. They are doing some training thing or something, so the next time we will be able to see them (well at least S.) will be after Jan. 26th. But, he soft committed for baptism and he committed to read and pray about the Book of Mormon.

Just this past week, we started something where some districts are having district meeting on Thursday and others on Friday. This week ours was on Thursday, and next week it'll be on Friday. They are doing this, so that the Zone leaders can attend more of the district meetings in their zones, so they can get to know the missionaries that they preside over a bit better.

We saw a couple of investigators named T. and M. We found them just last week. They are really cool. They committed to read and pray about the Book of Mormon. We are trying to get them to attend church, but T. plays the drums for the church that he currently attends, so, he's working on finding someone to replace him, so they can check the church out.

I think that those are all of the main highlights for the week. Oh, President I. talked with me once more about my extension. It seems pretty final that it won't be happening though. I wish it could. He said that he wish he could keep me here, but it just wouldn't work out, so it I'll be going home in April still.

I'm so excited to check out your profiles on! So cool! Well, that's everything for this week. Thanks for everything y'all do for the Lord and I. The church is true and I love being a missionary! I love y'all!!! (He has been asking us to add our profile to this site and we’re finally getting around to it)
