This week was really good. The M*s are doing well, same old with them. They are progressing nicely and are keeping commitments and learning. They were really sad to hear that I was leaving and I'm sad to be leaving them as well. Luckily we have a lesson with them tonight so I'll get to see them before I head out tomorrow morning. It's been quite the journey with them but I'm sure the future missionaries will take good care of them.
We received a reassignment from the Naperville 2nd missionaries. His name is Adam and he was referred by a member who is also his boss at work. We found out that a member from this Ward knows him and his daughters. The member’s kids and their kids are good friends and were super excited to hear that we would be teaching them. We have a lesson with him tonight and we're praying really hard that this lesson goes well because he seems really awesome. Also, we found out he loves magic and tried out for Americas Got Talent over the weekend. Not sure how he did but we should find out tonight.
As we were street contacting one day we talked to a lady who we found out was a former whose record had been deleted. We had a lesson with her on Sunday morning before church. When we showed up initially she wasn't home so we did a few stop by's and tracked a little and then tried again. Literally right as we touched the handle to the complex she opened the door and walked out. We sat down right there and taught her a lesson about the Book of Mormon and of the importance of baptism. She wants her children baptized and even though she has already been baptized we explained the Priesthood and she said she would be baptized again. Good stuff!
I'm super excited for this new transfer. Both Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up and that means a new initiative. It's called #LIGHTtheWORLD. During Zone Conference Elder Royce and I went up on the stage and read a long PowerPoint about it, so you could say I'm sort of an expert now. Just kidding. If you haven't heard of it look up #LIGHTtheWORLD or "In 25 Ways. Over 25 Days." hopefully there is something on that somewhere. I'll give more details as it gets closer. I'm excited for it though. It gives us wonderful opportunities to share the light of Christ throughout the Christmas season.
That should be about it for this week. I love you all and hope you have a wonderful week ahead of you. Rely on the Lord and he will direct your paths for good.
