SO ya this was an intense week like I have gotta say. Like....ya... it was intense. I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
First off this week started on Thursday basically. I got a new companion! His name is Elder Driggs (I'll attach a picture) but ya. He's taller than I am and he is a Music major. It is intense. Like our companionship study always starts with a song and all (that is normal, you can ask Chase) but ours is especially loud and impressive (I thoroughly enjoy it).
We have had a fun time these first couple of days and he is SUCH a hard worker. Like it's nuts. It's good though because I thought I was already working hard, but he helped me to really think about how I can improve how I work!
This transfer (and hopefully for the rest of my mission) I really want to focus on Member missionary work. I got a referral last week that I told you about and ya. He is progressing so GOOD!!! He is planning on being baptized on the 17th of February and came out to church this week. He had an amazing experience with the Spirit at church where he truly did feel the Spirit and recognized it. We were able to sit down and explain to him what the Spirit does and just ya!
The member work in our ward is starting to pick up. We are starting to try and really make sure that our members are involved in our work and it is exciting. It is hard for sure but I have really been blessed with the help that we need. We have been able to see a lot of progression this week and it was just GAH! It was the best. I can't even explain.
We also got a chance to meet with one of our former investigators again this week and we picked him back up and are meeting again! It is the best. Things are really picking up here and I wanna see our investigators get baptized out of it! We are working hard so I don't see any reason why that won't happen.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to be out on a mission. I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father for the opportunity to be a servant in His hands. It is the best. I am truly seeing miracles out here in the lives of these people! I just wanna let you all know, that the church is true. God lives, He loves us. He wants to guide us and if we pray and do what He asks, He will send the spirit. It will touch our hearts and help us to know that this is true!
Love ya'll tons. Heard dad is in Germany this week, seeing as how Elder Miller is German I will tell him!
