21 July 2014

Things this week went really well especially Thursday.  We have continued the process of going through our records to go and see everybody in the area book and have fixed up the Ipad area book a ton as the missionaries before did a pretty crappy job of putting people into it.  I've been deleting a lot of junk records as well.  And through our efforts we found a few people that we are going to be teaching this upcoming week.  Thursday was an interesting day.  We decided to drive by this inactive part-member family where the father was inactive and married an inactive and had two inactive kids in what a teaching record from 2012 said.  We parked and walked over and one of the kids invited us in.  She told us that she actually had just been baptized two weeks ago in Kansas and had been in Kansas for college.   It's not everyday that you go and drop by a former investigator and find out that other missionaries have already done the work for you!  But that was pretty cool.  We hope that this spiritual event will soften up the rest of the family and we will try by again later and we were told that they would let us in.  That same day we tried by another less active family and she was way nice to us but said they were heading out at the moment and said for us to try back on Thursday and that she would have her non- member kids participate.  So that's pretty cool.  This week has been another finding week and really consisted of working with and seeing what works that we already have. The rescheduled court case will happen on the first now.  Also the truck is finally getting an appointment to get looked at.  Missionaries have been pretty cruel to it and we were told by one of our investigators who works with cars that the inside of the tires are illegal.   The steering also feels way messed up and it has the turning radius of the Titanic.  Yesterday I turned into someone's narrow driveway and it couldn’t even make the turn so I had to reverse and to get it to turn into it.  We didn't get to go to pageant as we couldn't find anyone to go see it with us and I saw it everyday last year.   We had this less active show up at church for the first time in a long time.  I met her briefly before so we'll definitely drop by her place for sure this week.
