Chickasha, Oklahoma- Week 53

So Elder Lyman is home now, and my new companion is Elder Roundy. So at the beginning of the week, not much happened with Elder Lyman getting ready to go home, so on Wednesday, Me and Elder Lindelof did service at the animal shelter here in the morning while we waiting for our new companions. After they got here, we went to Rush Springs, we go there every Wednesday, and it was great, we saw some members and investigators there, and also talked to a few more people and they said we could come back. So we can't wait to go back and see them again. One person we met, we knocked on there door, and asked if we could say a prayer with her, so she said yes, and we talked for a little while more, and was talking about that we do as missionaries, and we were talking about the Book of Mormon how it goes hand in hand with the Bible, and she says, that's sounds great! and I love reading! So we gave her a Book of Mormon, and she says that she feel all tingly inside, and that she couldn't wait to read it :) So that was awesome. On Thursday, we tried some former investigators and taught them again! Had a really good lesson with our recent converts and got the brakes on my bike fixed, and hopefully I can take it to a bike shop soon, should be sometime this month. Learning the area is getting a lot better, and today I bought myself a compass, don't know why I didn't do that earlier, that should help out a lot. Elder Day is our new District Leader, seems like a really cool guy, and we had a good district meeting. On Saturday, we went to try a referal from a less active, and he was awesome, we taught him the restoration and it went really well; the spirit was so strong. He was telling us that him and his fiance want to get married soon, and they want to be married in a church, so we told him that if he wants, come to our church, and then talking about marriage, we brought up that we believe that we can be married for time and all eternity and he seemed so excited about that, and that's what he wants. So it was a good week this week. We are having a temple trip this week, so I can send you a picture of me at the temple soon! Love you!
Elder Roundy and I!

Chickasha, Oklahoma- Week 52

So this week has been crazy with Elder Lyman leaving and saying goodbye to people, so between that and trying to find more people to teach, this week has defiantly gone by fast. We haven't been able to meet with that many people this week, so we are trying to find new investigators. Its been hot, but toward the end of the week, we have been getting some rain which cools things down quite a bit, so then it feels good outside. So, we got the transfer doctrine last night, and my new companion is Elder Roundy, I don't know that much about him, so I guess I will find out Wednesday. I'm getting more used to Chickasha, which is good, I think I'm ready to take over the area now. Sunday was really good, we had three of our investigators at church! And they had a great time. The branch here is growing! Love you!
