Dear Family and Friends,
This week I got transferred across town to be with Sister Madison, and Sister Madison's companion, Sister Jerman, got transferred to be with my old companion, Sister Bestenlenher. So we just switched companions. I am excited to be serving with Sister Madison, she is just a wonderful social butterfly. I know it is going to be a great transfer. Our first day together on Wednesday after we switched companions we had a lesson with this really nice investigator, Arunas. He is really good and loves to read the Book of Mormon and General Conference. He learns a lot just from all the reading he does. He has a lot of good questions and he even has a baptismal date. We talked to him about staying for all three hours of church, he comes every week but ends up leaving after the second hour. We committed him to staying for all three hours. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to make it to our lesson we planned for Saturday or for church on Sunday because he got sick. On Friday we got to watch this really neat worldwide missionary and mission president training broadcast. It was really neat and they really expounded on those basic things that we really know because we study them all the time and expound on the to help us teach better and follow the Holy Ghost more. On Saturday we were able to have a lesson with a less active couple at the senior couples apartment. It went really well and I feel like we were able to help them see the importance of the temple and what preparation they will need to enter. We know that they really want to go to be sealed, but they need to understand what that means. We asked them to read the Book of Mormon five minutes each together for a total of ten minutes, and then five minutes personally each day. They said they would, we also asked if they would be at church and they said they would be there, or try to be there. They did come, it was only for Sacrament meeting, but they said they would come for longer next week. They are making some more progress now and it is really exciting.
Sister Madison and I.
