Transfer Time

Monday 2nd & 9th of June, 2014

So they got their transfer calls, Elder Bowser is getting transferred to Pahrump. Sam will be staying in this area with Elder Ete. Sam sort of knows him, he was in his last zone, he only has six weeks left before he goes home, Sam said he will make sure he works and doesn't get trunky! This means he will probably stay in this area another three months, unless they double transfer him and Elder Ete out at the same time, which he hopes they don't do.

So after they've had success with their baptisms, their teaching pool is filling up again, they got four new investigators this week: Joseph, Juan, Kevin and Marcy.

Joseph is going to be moving soon, and he has some mental issues from drug abuse in the past (he's been clean for a while now).

Kevin is 16 and he's a cool kid, he has pretty good insight and understanding despite only being 16, he told them that after he prayed about Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon, he got the impression that he would receive an answer, but God is going to make him work to get his answer, and that he will need to act on that answer.

With Marcy they had a really interesting experience, they taught a lesson about the Book of Mormon, and showed her the promise in Moroni 10, after reading that promise, she excused herself and went and got a notepad where she had written down a prayer she had given a few days earlier. It read to the effect: "God, please help me find the truth, guide me to where you would have me be". She started crying and the Spirit was really strong, she accepted the invitation to be baptized on the 28th of this month, but they invited her to pray about it herself to get a confirmation that it's the right time for her to do it.

Elder Ete is from Samoa, he lived in Seattle before his mission, he has five weeks left! They get along well, and they work together well also. This week has been a long week, they've been working hard, Sam almost burned himself out, he should be ready to work again by the end of P-day though :)

Elder Ete really wants to get at least one more baptism before he goes home. They tried contacting some former and potential investigators this week, they managed to pick up one new investigator, but other than that they haven't had a whole lot of luck finding new investigators, Sam and Elder Ete are going to start finding their own people to teach now.
