Pretty Good Week

This week was pretty good. We worked hard and even though our numbers don't show it we accomplished a lot. We were able to meet with the Chinese speaking elder and coordinate with him how he can help out the Chinese members and where he can work in our area. It's super weird he was called English but when his mission president found out he could speak Vietnamese and Chinese, he was switched and he covers all of GA doing work for the Vietnamese branch. The weird thing is he's the only one that speaks it, his companions have all been just English speaking so when they're with him they do like nothing... super strange!

But we met with our investigator John again who we found a couple weeks back by tracting. He's a cool guy, he did stand up comedy for a while and has a ton of stories. Now he has MS and other medical problems and hardly sees anyone. It's sad but I feel like his condition has prepared him to receive the gospel. He moving slowly but I have very strong faith he will progress to baptism. Our other investigator James has been passed off to the YSA branch elders so we see him every now and then, but we aren't really teaching him.

On Saturday it was really rainy. Pretty hard actually for the first time in a while. We had an event that evening called a member mingle at our ward mission leader's home. It was like a social gathering for part members, less actives, and members of the ward council. It was pretty great, even though we invited some people who said they would come and didn't. We also had the opportunity to teach mutual on Wednesday to the youth, that went okay. Elder Pasa Vaili and I also went to a youth fireside last night. It was really good.

I've had the opportunity to play piano quite a bit. This ward is soooo rich. And most people have a piano so I get to play at people's houses which is great.

That's about it though. Today for Pday we're going to some persons house who has an indoor basketball court, pool table, foosball table, huge field in the back yard. So should be cool.

I had a great study in 2 Nephi ch. 9 too. I would recommend a study of that again I get a ton our of that chapter every time I read it. Also the CES fireside talk by Elder Christofferson called Give us This Day Our Daily Bread. Amazing talk. There's an awesome Mormon Message video on it too.

Take care love you all
