The Spirit Whispers

Hello everyone,

This week was the best week we have had in a while we finally got 5 MP's [Lessons taught with a member present] and we found a lot and had a lot of other lessons.  So it was a really good week and I am content with it.

We found this man named Edgardo and we actually found him while we were biking to an appointment.  I said “hi” to him and he said “hi” back and I felt the spirit tell me to go back and so we turned around real quick and ask him about what he knew about the church.  He said he had talked to missionaries back in Guatemala.  Long story short, he invited us back.  Yesterday we went back and gave him the Book of Mormon.  Next time we come back we will follow up on what he thought of the introduction.  So we are excited to see how he did.

Today we are going to hike Stone Mountain.  It’s going to be fun I think!  [I will] send pics next week!

Love you all!

Ferrari Pictures

Hello everyone,

This was a good week.  We worked really hard!  This past week we were riding our bikes along and we stopped at a gas station and there was a Ferrari sitting and my companion “geeked” out on me.  He asked the guy if he could take pictures of his car he said yes so I started talking to him he lives in Buckhead, GA.   He flips homes for a living so it was pretty cool to talk to him.

This week was tough.  A lot of our solid people are flaking out on us so we are doing some serious building.

Have a great week!

New Companion

Hello everyone,

So this week was transfers.  If you have ever been a missionary, [you know] transfer week is usually really exciting because either you’re excited to see your companion leave or you’re sad for them to leave.  My new companion is Elder Ferbrache.  He is from Wyoming.  Cool kid.  Usually my companions have served in some of the same area as I have but this is not the case this time.

So on Friday we did service for the local schools in Dekalb County.  Dekalb County is in Atlanta.  Some kids [struggle to] pass the end of the year test so we were there helping direct people at the expo that came in to help the kids get the help they need.  So that was fun.  

This week we saw Myia and taught her the gospel of Jesus Christ. Then things went down hill.  We were not able to meet with her again and then she had work come up so she didn't get to come to church. So she fell off date for baptism this coming Saturday. but it might of been good because she hadn't been taught the Word of Wisdom, so it will give us another week more to teach her what she needs to be taught.  But we are going to get her back on date for the follow weekend.  I think Sunday just because our ward mission leader wanted us to do it on Sunday.

Thank you everyone for all that you do!  Keep praying for the missionaries out there!  We need your help!
