So I seem to have mention this a lot the past couple of weeks but its true. Little by little every week the work is continuing to grow and get better in this area. It hasn't happened over night but our teaching pool is continually increasing. We almost taught 15 lessons this week and a lot of them were with member presents so a lot of good things are happening. And we now have a whomping 6 progressing investigators which is awesome!
On Tuesday we had zone meeting and after we were gonna go visit the people we had planned but Elder Vielstich had a strong prompting we should go visit our investigator named John Setelo so we did. One thing great about being a missionary is whether its yourself or your companion you're continually being led by the spirit in EVERYTHING you do. We had a super powerful lesson with John and talked very deeply about the atonement Jesus Christ. He had been having a hard time with some personal issues and just starting crying during our lesson. He even gave us a hug after wards thanking us for the discussion. John is progressing super well and is definitely heading in the right direction. He was on date for baptism but backed off so hopefully we can get him in that direction.
We had another super good lesson with our investigator named Wilma. Her daughter converted years ago and is super active so we were able to teach and find her through her daughter. Wilma is a very avid reader so it hasn't been hard to get her to read the Book of Mormon and she's already half way through it! Well the spirit is continually touching her and she came to church the other week!
We're teaching a couple of part-member families as well. We have a investigator named Kent who has a very strong active wife and he's been going to church for months now and is quite frankly being a little stubborn and won't commit to make a lot of changes. But we're continuing to work with them. We're working with another part-member family named the Schweighs. There daughter was baptized about six months ago so we working with the father and the 12 year old son named Colton.
Good things are happening so thank you so much for your prayers and support! Oh and by the way today is my 19 month mark. I can't even fathom that. Well have a great week!
