This week we were busy as heck! P-Day was fun as always. Tuesday Elder Gray and I went on exchanges with another set of Elders. I was able to go with Elder Ishibashi in his area. He just arrived here in the mission at the beginning of the transfer. He is from Hawaii and is a Visa waiter going to Fiji. He is an awesome guy and I wish he was staying here. Wednesday was the Temple. We had the 6:30am session and I was so tired during it. Not sure about the LA Temple but in the Denver Temple they keep the Endowment rooms super cool to keep everybody awake. Thursday was District meeting and our weekly planning as well, since we had MLC on Friday. We did some more service for a young couple that just moved in on Saturday morning. Tyrone, the Polynesian that we live with, likes to take us to Golden Corral every other week and we went with him Saturday as well.
Our investigators are not progressing as fast as we would like them to, but we still experienced some small miracles with them this week. We are working with a young adult named Adora. She is in her early 20's, African American, and is looking into the Book of Mormon. We tried to contact her last week but had no luck until yesterday. She texted us and asked if she can come to church this Sunday. She seemed really excited. We picked Eddison back up. We had three lessons with him during the past three weeks and we invited him to baptism on the first one. He said he wants to learn more before he does it. The second lesson went down hill because his wife is giving him anti information. He says he doesn't want to leave his culture and we explained that he doesn't have to but that didn't sink in. We will probably end up dropping him soon. Yesterday was busy as well. We have ward counsel with the Fox Hollow Ward at 8am, then ward correlation at 10:15 and then we went to the Smoky Hill Sacrament Meeting at 11am. We went to 2nd and 3rd hour in Fox Hollow to finish church. Lots of driving around but thankfully the ward buildings are close. This week we have Zone Meeting on Wednesday but other than that, we don't have a whole lot.
Transfers are on August 24th and the clock is ticking way too fast. Not sure if I will stay in this area for the rest of my mission but there is a possibility that I will get transferred, who knows. Monday August 15th, the Ft. Collins Temple Open House will be open just for missionaries and there investigators. We are going to try to get one of them to go and if that happens we will be able to see it. We will have to get a ride though. I hope you all have a great week!
