This week was a little slower than normal but another great one! Elder Toki and I are trying our best to get relationships booming with the youth. Ages 15-25 are the most influential times in a humans life! If we can make the gospel a priority in that time then they will be lifelong members. By the age of 30 most humans are on auto-pilot! They brush their teeth without thinking, drive without thinking, and eat without thinking! Involving the church into that auto-pilot system will change people forever! It will keep strong families and will bring great converts to the church! That has been the big focus of the week...it’s hard and our numbers aren't that great but we are hoping the work will just explode!
We had a BAPTISM this week! Elder Pitcher and I found a 19 year old and taught him the first couple of lessons during exchanges. We had to refer him to the YSA missionaries but we were blessed to go to Elk Grove (Vintage Park Building) and witness his baptism! It was awesome and a great spirit was there! I had a blast seeing Bishop Hogge! He is an amazing man! Super humble and it was fun catching up with him! I will send pictures of the baptism!
We have lots of opposition this week! We a giant bolt in our tire and got a flat tire on our 2017 Corolla, on our way to the church (since we noticed the bolt) we also got rear ended. Literally all in 10 minutes we got a flat tire and rear ended in a brand new car. It doesnt even have 2000 miles on it! Our zone is kind of losing its fire right now so are we are stressing picking up the work and even working harder!
Missionary work is hard so we are supporting but asking for a lot! We are hoping a lot of miracles will happen this week with everything that happened this week! Thank you all for your support and emails!
