Week update, May 25, 2016
This last week was pretty good,
Wednesday night we had a solid member present lesson with our investigator Alex, we went over to a member in the branches apartment and it went really well. We were able to find some of his concerns and help resolve them.
Thursday was quieter, we weekly planned, and Elder Burton had a doctor’s appointment. Nothing too crazy!
Friday was quieter as well. We had pretty much all of our appointments that day cancel which stinks, so we spent a lot of time trying to contact people in Central Park. It went pretty good. Saturday was pretty cool, the sisters had an investigator who we would talk to sometimes, and she wanted me to baptize her so that was a great experience. I didn't get a picture though so you guys will have to take my word for it.
Sunday was pretty good as well. Church went well. Gospel principles class was a roller coaster ride like usual. We always get a lot of opinions and gospel facts without sources. This last Sunday it was a good thing that our investigators weren't able to make it to gospel principles. Anyways Elder Johnson came to visit the mission with his parents so it was fun to see him and meet his parents.
Monday we had district meeting. It went pretty well. We went to a pizza place on the upper west side for lunch, it was pretty fun. The place we went is infamous for really big slices. So that's always a fun place to go. On Monday night we were able to go to Alex's house and teach him the plan of salvation. It went really well! We were able to get through it which is really cool and he did a really good job of understanding it. And he always has great questions. Yesterday I got my temple recommend renewed in the morning which was really good. Then in the afternoon we were able to teach one of our investigators, Dwight so that was real nice. We had a member come, and he sort of led the lesson all over the place, but I think Dwight got the jist of it.
Today we went up to Harlem to look a guy up and he wasn’t home, so we went to come back down to the lower part of the city but the subways were all shut down so we had to take a bus, supposedly a lady fell onto the tracks and was run over. Earlier we wondered around an area called SoHo and we were looking for stores that are going out of business because they have awesome sales, we found a Ben Sherman’s store that was closing and they had suits for like $50 dollars and they are usually $300 but they were all weird colors and stuff! It was a quiet day in a quiet area. The President has asked us to do a lot of service to fill the days so we work in central park sometimes.
Next week is transfers and I have no clue what is going to happen! But I will do whatever the lord asks of me! Anyways hope you all have a great week!
