Well last week I talked about my ankle being a bit messed up and I’m over that now because I nearly lost my thumb on Sunday… not kidding… I went to the emergency room for the second time on my mission and had to get stitched up and wrapped. I’m starting to think I’m a bit accident prone…IT happened while I was setting up some chairs for a big back to school event where people hand out school supplies to the less fortunate and while setting up one of these tables I got my thumb caught in a pinch point where there was a sawed off piece of metal and it just sliced right though the skin and muscle right down to the bone. it didn’t hurt… at first, and it didn’t start bleeding right away so I was able to SEE the bone in my thumb for a second. I was immediately rushed to the emergency room and was fixed up. I have a picture on my fixed up hand on the one drive so there is that as well as the pictures from the baptism this past week.
THis is him with his Mission President and wife. They are going home next week.
Happy Fathers Day Dad!! sounds like you had a great time with the heat!
Well last week we lost a lot of investigators but this week made up for it by giving us an entire family to teach as well as a set of less actives that are returning to activity. a pretty nice consolation prize all things considered. The family are named the Loving Family and they are GOLDEN!!! we have only been there once and they came to church yesterday and had a great time. did I mention that she has 5 kids and she brought a few of her friends kids with her? and the less active I mentioned before was the one to give all of them a ride giving her the opportunity to come to church for the first time in a year? it was fantastic!we are going back there tomorrow and hopefully things will continue to progress.
Now I just feel a little sucky about how I performed in track but its amazing that Stephanie is doing so well in her events.
I need to say sorry for not emailing yesterday, we were down in Tulsa and we needed to get our cars oil changed and tires rotated then we were hanging out with the YSA branch in Tulsa and the Assistants to the president. It was so great being with them but we went a bit to long and needed to go to an appointment right after and by the time that we were finished we needed to get back home. so that’s my fault but the appointment was with an investigator that we recently found. his name is Zach R*** (Awesome name) and we ran into him while we were going down the less active names on the ward roster. He was living in a house that a member used to live in but never got his records moved. We started talking and left him with a Book of Mormon and he read a large amount of it and had a bunch of questions. After we talked to him about the restoration he started asking about baptism and how we do it and after we explained that we asked if he would like to be baptized and he said yes… I wish EVERY investigator I worked with was this easy and open. We just need to get him to give up some habits and he should be good.
