Moms know everything. Case in Point:
"How's everything going in the FTM? I suppose you will have a new companion soon. Hope you enjoy him as much as Elder Woods."
what the heck... oh yeah, maybe i wrote about it in my blog last week or something. I dont remember... but yeah.
SO... i'm getting the heck outta dodge... or Auburndale... as the case happens to be. I'm leaving Auburndale this wednesday, heading for the dirrty south... its called Cape Coral. I'm way psyched to be going there. I'm going to recap auburndale the way i did in my personal journal, because it seemed to come out right.
I'm going to recap the investigators I had while in auburndale, but not going to use their whole names.
We met grady tracting on saturday. He was asking a ton of questions that we had answers for. "Where is god's true church?" for example. I could see him getting baptized. He drinks, but i doubt that will stop him once he gets a little taste of testimony.
#2-- Tie. Tamika and family / Angie
Tamika's famil was a door find, but they moved to winter haven west. No real progress since. Angie was a media refferal that we tracted into. That was kind of a crazy/cool experience. She lives with her bf's family, so thats kind of a problem... and she has 2 kids oow.... so yeah.
#3-- and falling... Robert
We had a BOMB.COM Book of Mormon read with robert, but now he doesn't want to progress anymore. He's practically dropped. I think Elder Woods can get him to move or stop... for real... now he's going to give it what he's got... (its a song... don't ask.)
#4-- Pierre / William
not anything to say, just cool people and hopfully i'll see them sometime in the future. Pierre works at a cool international place, and William used to do ultimate fighting, so thats cool.
anyways, that was auburndale... both of our recent converts went inactive... so thats auburndale too.
On a side note, thats going to make NO ONE cry, I'm going to leave auburndale, and leave elder woods. I wrote in my journal that i don't really miss anyone, but now that i think about it, i'll probably miss some people. Elder Woods is a really good missionary.
Elder Staples is replacing me in Auburndale, so thats kind of funny.
Favorite Members in Auburndale--
Danners. HOLY COW, the coolest family ever. Brother Danner is super busy, and takes time out of his schedule to help us missionaries. Sister Danner bore her testimony rebuking the ward for not feeding us missionaries. They got me a bunch of presents too, so thats even cooler.
Grahams. W00t for the grahams. They had the best conversion story ever, and unfortunatly brother graham has to work 7 jobs now... ok only 3 but you get the picture. Next to impossible to work for him. Hopfully i'll be able to come by today and see him at around 4.
Miers. Chris Mier is the only member of the elders quorum presidency to actually prepare a lesson. He does such a good job. You know whats kind of funny? I've never met the elders quorum president... in the 3 months that i've been here. Weird huh? Chris keeps it together, and his Wife Mindy does a great job on anything she tries. Its kind of funny how stuff goes. We had them over for dinner yesterday, and made them some good food... grilled cheeze sandwitches. They were good.
Thats about it for auburndale, the ward is trying to improve, but its not happening fully yet. They're restructuring the boundries at the end of february, so then we'll know more.
I'm leaving on wednesday, and my old DL, elder Gilbert is going to bring elder staples to auburndale, so i'm way excited to see the two of them again.
Scripture of the day:
My district leader, elder rice, is going home in 3 days. He had this bit of scriptural wisdom to share with everyone. I'll share it in 20 months with everyone. its 2 John 1:12 The church is the bomb, and its true, and i'm out.
