Wooow that has to be the most new emails in my inbox on my whole mission like 24 of them hahaha took me a while to get through them all.
Well this week was good it was a lot better then the last 2 weeks we've had. Nobody came to church for us, but (S) our investigator who is in the army had to go to Georgia, so that’s why he wasn’t there, but we just don’t have any really solid investigators, we are trying to find them just nothing yet. We taught a lot of people but most of them were just people that wanted to talk and then didn’t really want us to teach them more, it was good still though. We didn’t get to take a tour of the plane last week cause it was pouring rain all day, but we did go to a Mexican food stand with the Spanish elders and get some real Mexican food, I got some cow tongue quesadilla’s, mmmm those were goood! We are going to get the tour of the planes today because its not raining, hopefully I can take pictures. We went to a member’s house early in the week and they are an older couple, the (G’s). They are really nice and the wife is Japanese, haha she is funny, but she got baptized 3 years ago and they still haven’t gone to the temple and so we talked to them and the hold up is because she doesn’t understand what the temple is really for and so we are gonna help them get on the path to get sealed. It has been so stinkin cold this week ha I don’t know why cause it’s March, but it is just still in the mid 40's and the wind is blowing hard and the humidity makes it feel colder. We had dinner last night with a young member couple who just moved into the ward and he is an air force fire fighter, it’s pretty cool and he also is a 3 year convert. It was cool to hear their story, and they are both younger then me, it feels so weird for there to be married couples younger then me that I could be friends with back home. We had a mission tour with Elder Marcus B. Nash of the Seventy, he came and it was so cool the stuff he talked about, about how to help people gain a desire to become active in the church again or to do missionary work.
He also taught us how to help others receive revelation, even in a teaching setting by asking them questions. He is now one of my favorite general authorities
Well cool to see all the pictures of dad driving through Boiling Springs, it was weird to see you at the same place I road my bike past every day.
I didn’t know Jordan was getting home already, ha tell him hi for me.
Well, that’s all for this week
Elder Harper :)
