Chickasha, Oklahoma- Week 61

So this week has been pretty busy, so on Wednesday we went up to transfers, we had to be there at 8:45 for a another meeting before we met the people that we are going to be training, so I'm training Elder Pearson, he seems like a great missionary and hope that we see lots of miracles this transfer! We were at transfers for a while, and got to see a lot of people, President said that a third of the mission was there, so lots of things are getting moved around lately if a whole third is getting changed up. After transfers we went and got my bike, so it is all fixed now, and with that recall thing, they also gave me a $20 gift certificate, so I used that on a cool little bike computer, so it can tell me how fast I am going on the bike and a few other things, I haven't tried it out yet, but hopefully I will do that soon. Oh, and I forgot to tell you, I am also District Leader now also, so I'm in charge of the district, and also give training every week, so that is something I'm trying to add onto with my personal studies in the morning is to prepare for district meeting. I already gave a training last Friday and I thought it went pretty well for my first time doing it. Elder Pearson and I have been starting to tract a lot more now, so we have gotten a few people that we are going to try to meet up with again later this week, hope everything goes well with that. So we have been busy this week this the tracting, and we also have had some good lessons. Last week we were talking with a less active member who hasn't been to church in a very long time, so we talked with him last week, and invited him, but said that he would be working so he could come, so last Saturday we went over and talked with him some more, and he was telling us how he knows that he needs to change, and that he could try to get off work so he could come to church on Sunday. On Sunday, we are all sitting down and church just started and he wasn't there, but then we saw him walk in and sat next to us!!!!! Super exciting! It raining all morning, so he couldn't work on roofs that morning, it was so cool seeing him there:) I think that was one of the highlights of the week! Our investigators are doing good, Lois is getting baptized next week!! She cant wait, she is awesome :)  On Sundays there is usually between 60-80 people there, I think this week we had 73, but our highest we ever had while I was here was 97, so we are growing, I can't wait for the day when it finally becomes a ward.
