Hey fam!! I miss y'all!
This week was pretty good! I don't have my other planner so I have to go off of memory on what happened this week... I know good things did happen!
We spent a lot of time at David and Colleen Natal's house. He is quitting smoking to be baptized on August 22nd so we go give some spiritual support!
We received a referral on Monday for someone in Fairfield to teach so we went up there and had super good lesson. Her name is Erika and she is about 24 and has a fiancé and two kids. She believes in having a relationship with God and she agreed to read and pray about the Book of Mormon and what we taught. The Spirit was really strong there.
We also are still meeting with Stew and he came to church again this week! He is doing great. And the rest of the work in Fairfield is going really well! This huge family of 12 kids we finally got in with. They are the Shorts. I don't know how many are members or not, but at least one of the parents is. They are way fun and we ended up giving one of the daughters a blessing for healing.
Thursday we had a really good Zone Meeting and TiWi training. We have TiWi's in our cars now and it monitors speed, seat belt, and aggressive driving and says warnings at you until you correct it or it will send a violation which after so many could result in suspension of privileges. It isn't that bad, just helps us be more safe! The Zone training was on Baptism and preparing better quality and quantity of converts. Was super good!
Went on Exchanges with District Leader and had a good time! While visiting Mayda, we shared a Mormon message -Hope of God's Light- and she also told us she read a Word of Wisdom talk by Boyd K. Packer and it was motivating to her! It was cool to hear she is studying on her own. They are a really good family and just need to have greater understanding of the gospel!
Anyways things are going well for me and I am learning a lot! I love serving and teaching people and everything else that a mission involves. Best experience of my life and I wouldn't trade it for the world.
Love, One and Only Elder Bean
