This week was my first full week in Thomaston and wow it is so much fun. On Tuesday I went on an exchange up to Griffin with Elder Poulson and Elder Poulson. Yep and since we were in a three some I got to tract with a Greeny (Younger Poulson as we call him). Since he had only been there like three days and was new to the mission it was an adventure!!! But we were able to find some people.
Kinda something cool. We drove past an old mill where they filmed Hunger Games. I got a bad pic but you can kinda see it. A lot of the Walking Dead shows are filmed in Griffin as well. Kinda the fun fact of the day!
Two of the days this week we went with the senior missionaries in our ward and went saw some people out in the country. It’s pretty awesome to have senior couples in your area.
Cool story for the Compton family. We were visiting this less active member who lives way out in the country and we were talking and for some weird thought reason I thought that I knew him from somewhere. He said something about how he worked when he was young on a potato farm in Colorado. At that moment Iknew where he was from so I asked him where he was from in Colorado and he said La Jara Colorado!!! So I told him about how my family on my dad side where from there [that area anyway]. Pretty cool.
But we found a lot of new investigators at the end of the week and quite a few that are really solid. This coming week we hope to see some good numbers coming our way. We also were able to invite a lot. We found this one family and I strongly believe we were lead there... we first knocked on the door and the father (Zack) answers the door and we said a pray and invite him and got a return appointment with him. Then we went to their neighbor’s house and they referred us back to them. So we thanked them and as we were leaving the neighborhood the wife of Zack came out and wanted to talk to us. So we talked to her and she was Seventh Day Adventists and she ask why we serve our missions and we talked shortly with about that. Then she told us what she believed and thanked us for sharing the good word. We than gave her a Book of Mormon and invited her to read and to come to know if it was true and that if she had any question that when we come back on Friday that we would be able to answer them and talk more. I just knew at that moment that she was prepared before and that she is one of many that that we are looking for.
So this week was filled with lots of excitement!
Love you all!!!!
