|Jordan with Elders Despain & Park working with youth in the Stake Mini-Mission|
Our lessons were really down this week (only 29), because we were punted from a lot of our appointments. (Punted means no call/no shows.) We spent a lot time this week finding new investigators and we were able to find a lot of potential progressing investigators. In fact, we found nine new investigators. The one that I think has the most potential is Esther. And by Esther, I mean a guy. Weird, right? Hmmm. Maybe it’s actually Lester. He’s really quiet, and I could have missed it, but I'm pretty sure he said Esther. He's 22 years old, and we found him while I was on exchanges with Elder Park. We saw him sitting outside his house, so we decided to talk with him. We taught him the Restoration, and he seemed pretty interested. He's got another 19 year-old brother and a 17 year-old sister, so hopefully we'll be able to teach them, too. His parents are in Saudi Arabia for work, so they live with their grandparents. We are pretty excited about teaching him again this week. We didn't teach Tony again this week, because he's still in Manila. I don't know if we'll ever get to teach him again for awhile. We're also going to teach a new investigator from a part-member family tomorrow, so that should be awesome. The husband's the only member in the family and wants his family to be taught. Of course, we are very excited about that.
We had interviews with President Martino on Tuesday, which is always an awesome experience. President Martino is such an inspiring and loving man. I really enjoyed my interview with him. Elder Biggs worked with Elder Revillo and me after interviews, and I love that. It was the first time I have ever taught with Elder Biggs. It was so awesome to work with him. Our MTC district has changed so much since the MTC. Just lots of growth. Missions are absolutely wonderful for the soul.
