Dear Family and Friends,
When I first came into the office, things were relatively calm, but now everything is starting to ramp up. We have zone conferences this week until . We are also starting our filter runs. We need to drive to most of the apartments in the mission to change filters and do apartment checks. It will be really fun to see the rest of the mission because I've only been on one side of the mission for all of my areas.
Other than that, things are going well. Elder Nielson has been transferred so it's just Elder Benosa and I in the office. We have everything figured out and our biggest goal is to get out and get as much proselyting done as we can, even though it's really hard sometimes. Right now, we have an investigator who is probably one of the smartest people we've ever met. She is currently reading through the Book of Mormon like a history textbook. She is matching it up chronologically with the Bible and following all of the family lines through the whole book. I'm pretty sure that she started out in an effort to find all the faults that she could, but has now changed her focus to finding all of the evidences that testify that the Book of Mormon is true. It is really exciting to see her make all of the connections and she is also getting a personal testimony through the Holy Ghost that it is true.
I feel like I'm getting the hang of being in the office and the work surprisingly feels just as fulfilling as being out and proselyting. That was something that I really wasn't expecting. Everything else is going well and I'm excited for all of the new experiences that lie ahead.
