A bit more information from the last transfer switcherooski. Did I mention that Elder Best, one of my previous companions has been living in our apartment with Elder Murphy for the past week? It's been a blast - let me tell you.
This zone has gotten a major facelift over the past little while and things are actually starting to look up. the Riverside Elders found 17 new investigators this past week. Everyone's getting super excited to do the work and get stuff done.
Because there wasn't too much crazy going on this week, there isn't a whole lot to tell. I'll try my best to focus on the positives. We had some great lessons go through this week. We had a fantastic lesson with our self-referral, Ray Bennett. He's super excited to get baptized on the 19th. We thought that there was going to be some problems with the Word of Wisdom but he wholeheartedly accepted the things we talked about saying that this church made him feel like he had a "Second Chance". He's fantastic!
We also had a bomb awesome lesson with Kat and had her interviewed to be baptized! She's so solid and has planned almost the entire baptismal program by herself. All of her concerns have been resolved and she's all set for the 5th so be on the lookout for when that happens.
Other than that, we've just been trying to focus on ways that we can help the zone continue to progress and become happier and more united. We're also trying to get the Beacon Hill Elders moved out as fast as possible so I can actually take a shower in the morning without it being -30 degrees. Praying that their apartment is all ready to go by later this week.
That's about it folks. There'll be more to come this week for sure.
Love you all.
