Things Going Well 8/06/2012
We had a busy week this week. We have spent the majority of the week trying to find new investigators because we have a little trouble retaining our current ones. It's been ongoing every week since I got to Moses Lake, where one week we have a ton of lessons with investigators, and then the next week, we don't have those investigators anymore, with the exception of a couple who have been progressing. Forest is SOOO close to baptism, but can't make that leap of faith right now that if he pays tithing, the Lord will take care of him. He knows he needs to pay tithing and get baptized, and he says he's even willing to do it when he figures out how to budget it, but in his mind right now, it is either; pay tithing and cut off helping his son and grandsons, or help his son, and not pay tithing right now. We keep trying to show him how the Lord will take care of not only him, but his grandsons as well if he keeps the commandments, but he needs to figure that out for himself before he can make that commitment. Satan is working on him real hard right now. He decided not to go to church this week for not any real reason, and in Sunday school, we had a lesson that, if he were there, I'm sure would have helped immensely to overcome his concerns. Amy seems to have been really hard to get a hold of since her boyfriend came back. Hopefully we'll be able to make contact with her this week. We taught a guy named Daniel who we did some service for last week. We finally go into his home and taught him and his 14 year old sister-in-law the restoration. He told us he was willing to explore and study about the church. He said he is open to learn more and if he received a confirmation that the things we taught are true, he would get baptized. His sister-in-law seemed to be listening pretty intently as well and we are hoping that we will be able to meet with them again. This week we have a mini missionary coming from Spokane for the whole week and that is really exciting. Other than that, not much to report. Things are going well and hope you all have a great week. Love you.
