So this week
had several things happened, First off it was Easter, which just isn't the same
away from home. I didn't even get to nic Eggs. I did try through. But also this
week, for Easter, in Sacrament meeting the Ward Mission did a musical number
and since my skills are not in the musical section, yet, then I was asked to
sign it while the others sang... Which I was okay with. I did a pretty good job
and the members seemed to enjoy it. They let me stay for the rest of the
meeting so that was nice.
So this area, Meridian, is actually the area with the
most Sacrament attending investigators in the Zone if not the mission. We had
seven investigators we are working with come to sacrament meeting and one of
them even brought a friend who is now interested. It is pretty sweet, they call
this area Meridian Gold mine. ( I like to think after being here for 3 months I
had something to do with that. You never know. But last Saturday I had my first
baptism! It was so awesome! I got to confirm her the next day in Sacrament
meeting. it was so amazing to see that!
And last but not least this week is
also transfers. So we all know what that means, I have been working on my
Spanish trying to get transferred to Spanish, but I think I will most likely go
back to ASL as they are opening up South again and there are only four ASL
missionaries in the mission right now. So yeah, that was my week.
I am also
leaving two people on date for next month for the Elders that move in after me.
There you go... It was a pretty good week, we actually mt almost all of our
weekly goals. Super high numbers.
