Yaateeh my family!
That transfer went by way to quickly! It does not see, like i have been here in Blanding for six weeks already. I guess time flies when you are working hard. I am staying here and so is Elder Nelson. we are working with some really good people right now and should be setting a couple of baptism dates this week. We are excited for that because it has been a couple of months since their have been any baptisms here in this area. We were really progressing with some investigators but then we had some set backs and it was really just bringing us down and we were beginning to wonder what was wrong. But, the past couple of weeks we have found some really awesome investigators. We were talking with one of our assistant ward mission leaders yesterday and he was telling us how on his mission he found that if you just continue to work real hard these awesome investigators will just come to you. I believe that to be really true. We have some we are working with that are slowly progressing and some that are just really grabbing a hold of the message and progressing rather quickly.
So mom that guy who called you on Saturday, his name is Kelly. He is one of our really solid investigators but has a long ways to go. He is a smoker but he has really come a long way with it. We have a goal to have him quit by the 25 of November, so we are taking steps to obtain that goal. He is set on it so we are really trying to get that done. He not only wants to do it because it is a commandment but he really needs to for his health as well. Just a side note he only has one eye and no teeth, he is proud of it too. He is a really good guy and really wants to do what is right, so we are working really hard to get him baptized. I am going to do it! He also has to get married to the lady he lives with, who is a member but is extremely stubborn. But before we can get them married we have to get them both divorced. So it is a big challenge but were working hard to over come them. Last night we were over visiting them and they got a call from her son who was over at her parents who live just next door. I guess her dad is having health problems and fainted and hit his head really hard so we went down to help them out and they asked us to give him a blessing. I love being able to exercise the power of God and being worthy to bring his blessings to his children. They took him to the hosiptal so hopefully he is ok.
So we got a text from the zone leaders today informing us that we have to be in by 7 tonight. That doesn't leave much room for doing much since on P-day we are suppose to be out at 6. So it should be a fun night i guess. We were going to go to the other elders house but they are leaving because one of them is getting transfered so hopefully we can find something to do.
Well I hope you all have a wonderful week! I love you all! Be safe and be smart!
Have a wonderful HALLOWEEN!!
