Hey everyone! Well, we had a pretty good week! It was kind of slow, but that is okay. We worked hard. We spent a lot of time this week with a recent convert who is struggling with depression. He doesn't have many friends and since he was baptized two weeks ago, he feels like Satan is trying to ruin his life. He wants to find a new job and hasn't.
I have some cool news! We had a new convert call us on Friday and ask us to come over. We got to his house and he told us he is being sealed to his wife on September 6th. He invited us. It has to be approved by the Mission President so we called and he approved it. The family who feeds us a lot is also having their adopted son sealed to them that day also. I'm really excited to go to the temple and Nauvoo!
The members are treating us good. One family fed us twice this week. On my birthday and on Sunday. They were mad at me for not telling them it was my birthday! We found 2 new investigators this week. One lady is super busy and I'm not sure how interested she is. She was super excited, but she keeps rescheduling with us. Well, hope everyone is doing well. The weather here has been mild from what I hear. Today it's so humid that when you drive water settles on the windshield like it does on the mirror after you get out of the shower! That's the craziest! Well take care and have a great week!! -Love Elder Lords
