Well, I didn't get transferred, and I'm super happy to be in the Ranchero ward still. Last week was a little tough, but, overall it was good. Our investigator, Will, is doing pretty good. We are just having a hard time getting him to read and pray about the Book of Mormon. When we were teaching him a lesson about faith he shared an awesome story with us. Here's the story..."A man walks across a rope over Niagara Falls everyday with a wheelbarrow. People always come to watch him do it. A boy, one day, said, "Do you think you'll make it across?" The man replied, "Of course. I do it everyday." Then, the man said, "Do you think I can make it?" The boy replied, "Yeah, I've watched you do it." The man said, "Well, hop in my wheelbarrow and come across with me." That is an awesome example of faith! Faith is taking that step into the wheelbarrow. It can sometimes be hard, but, it's always worth it.
Our investigator, Irelyn, is doing okay. We weren't able to see her last week because her Mom died from pneumonia. So, we are gonna try and see her this week.
I'm super excited to be able to Facetime home this . Our Zone didn't really change at all this transfer, we just had two missionaries leave the Zone. One missionary went home because it was time for him to go home, and the other one got transferred. Our Zone seems to be doing pretty good. We have a couple missionaries that we're a little worried about, but, overall we have a group of really good missionaries.
I'm doing great!! I'm absolutely loving being a Zone Leader! It is just awesome! I love being able to serve and help other missionaries. It makes me be a better missionary, it gives me drive to become the missionary the Lord wants me to be so that I can help the missionaries in my Zone become who they need to be.
Our Zone made Zone t-shirts. I'll have to send a pic of what they look like. They're pretty cool!
I love all of you so much. Keep up the good work. Remember, Jesus Christ is always there, waiting for you to ask Him to help lift the load you're carrying. I keep all of you in my prayers.
