For a recap of last weeks blog, I started a list of tasks or challenges for the last 24 weeks of my mission. This week, the first week challenge waaaaas:Knock at least 100 doors in one day. We completed it! It actually went a lot faster than I thought it was going to be. We were knocking on doors early in the morning at 10am just in case, but with lunch and and an extra half hour added for driving to the places, we were done at 3:30pm. What was great is that we hopefully found 3 new people to teach!
Along with that, the week went pretty well. We had a baptism for our investigator Dylan. He has been excited for baptism since we first started teaching him, and now he finally hit the water. We first started teaching him after they heard about the church from some of the members that were in our ward. When the mother talked to the bishop about the church, he suggested for her to start taking the missionary discussions. So she did with her two boys. A couple months later, here we are. Their testimonies have grown so much since the first time we met them. I would say the biggest converter they had was the spirit testifying of the truth and the miracles they saw within their lives. It was amazing experiences.
They are now making their way to all of them getting baptized. We actually just left their ward to go to the Skye Canyon Ward in a new stake that was created so we won't be teaching them anymore, but it was fun while it lasted for us.
Lastly, we had a christmas party this week. Santa ended up showing and he was a big hit for all the kids. Christmas is coming soon! We're so ready for it!
Week 2's Challenge will be: Go to some Garage Sales. Hide Some Book of Mormon's. :D
Have a great week!
