This last week has been crazy! Transfers were Wednesday and now my companion is elder Boizelle and he’s great! He’s from mesa AZ and this will probably be his last area. He can sing really well. This last Sunday we sang in sacrament mtg in the Kaysville East 13th ward "Where can I turn for peace" and it was way cool…we were going all over the place singing tenor, bass, alto’ and of course melody, except on the last verse(tenor and bass). I recorded it so you’ll hear it eventually =) and guess who attends that ward? Bro. George Dire, the amazing tenor. We met him afterward and he’s way cool.
This last week we got three new investigators and they’re very interested, but the day after we committed two of them for baptism they were drunk and said it’s too hard. They still want to meet with us but their bap date is pretty much no good anymore. They might take awhile. But with prayers and faith there will be a way.
For all those people who say that Utah missions are easy, they don’t know anything. Yeah, there are a lot of awesome members here, but that just means that the non-members and apostate members go to extremes to prove that they aren’t LDS. We talked to some people the other day that completely believed that smoking and drinking was good for them. And that was their life basically. Its very sad. And what’s with parents that say they will never talk to their kids again if they get baptized?? And the parents are members? Augh! But that’s kindof negative. I’ll stop venting now.
A positive thing that happened this week was that we started teaching an awesome 17-yr old kid named Logan and he’s been coming to church for at least a month and just wants to learn more. He doesn’t want a baptism date yet but he is a sponge!! The ward is also doing a marvelous job of fellowshipping. I’m super excited for him!
I love you all so much and thanks for all your prayers!! Prayers are awesome! The lord said that we get blessings for praying for people, and that’s not very hard is it? So, woo! Free blessings! =)
Elder Halestorm =)
