This week has been super awesome!! Wednesday was transfer day but hardly anybody in Gainesville got transferred so it didn't really feel like it. It's been a super good week though.
So on Tuesday we took a member out with us, Evan, and we were heading to an appointment and it ended up falling through even though the guy confirmed the appointment that morning. Classic. Anyways, so we visited a couple less actives and then literally as we were pulling into Evan's apartment complex we got a flat tire... so that totally threw our plans out the window, we ended up putting a donut on it and then taking it to the shop. We didn't have anything to do so we just went knocking and we ended up meeting a super solid new investigator!! Her name is Caren and one of her good friends went on a mission and is at BYU right now. We taught her and then had a return appointment with her and her boyfriend, Addison, on Friday and they are sooo solid it was awesome.
Addison came to church and he dressed so well that nobody even knew he was an investigator haha. Caren didn't make it but we are going back to teach them and we are super excited for them. Sometimes the Lord just makes us jump through a lot of hoops and change a lot of tires to find the people that have been prepared. So we are really excited for them.
Other than that, our week has been pretty normal, lots of contacting, some service and consistent spring/summer heat. It's getting to the point where the wind feels like someone is blowing a hair dryer in your face on full heat, except with a humidifier on it. Good times.
I was reading in the Power of Everyday Missionaries this week in my personal studies. In the introduction Clay Christensen shows all of the promised blessings to those who actively try to be missionaries, and I just felt the spirit say to me that continuing to be a missionary after I go home is really the only intelligent thing to do, and that it's something that will help me to endure to the end. It's kinda scary to be in my final transfer on the mission but I am just excited to be able to continue to share the gospel for the rest of my life!
Love y'all 8-)
