4 June 2013

Week 19

Things are good and it's sunny every day here.  I'm staying in Flagstaff this week, my companion is going to the reservation. Deon is progressing, but not Owen. They haven't had all the lessons, but they have had most of them. There are a standard 5 lessons - 3 main lessons, 1 lesson of commandments that is usually broken up into multiple lessons or parts put in with other lessons, and there is a lesson after baptism that we usually just put into the first three when reteaching them after baptism. We don't have to go in order as long as we cover the main point in the lessons, at any time, we can do it however we want. Investigators have to go to church 4 out of the 6 weeks before their baptismal date and 2 of the 4 have to be the two weeks right before the baptism. I haven't done any church tours yet, but I guess I could. We probably over all have more success with people in trailer homes just because there are more of them, but % would definitely be lower (in trailer homes) for the number of people we talk to and the number of people interested. You know funny thing about Fast Sunday meetings, like no one actually shares their testimony except the little kids. All the adults usually just say something they did or what the're thankful for, none of which is part of a testimony meeting. And this can really turn off investigators depending on what some of the more crazy people in the ward say.
Any way things are great.
