Things going well in the Catt Branch

1 September 2014

Let's see.  This week was actually pretty good.  We had 3 investigators at sacrament meeting which is pretty good.  We also had a way solid lesson with our investigator Rodger and he said he would come to church (although he failed to show yesterday which I'm kind of glad because the topics weren't the most friendly to investigators).  But a thing that this area does which is really awesome are these cottage meetings which are held once a month at a member’s home where we teach a lesson and everyone invites their friends and less active friends to come to.  We did one last Wednesday at a lesser active member’s house.  This branch is actually interesting in than that there are a lot of border line people meaning people that are neither active or technically less active In which they come 1-2 a month and don't really participate in a calling so we are working a lot with these members to get them more active.  They are all super friendly to us though and always are willing to talk but usually have some kind of offense or something that they're holding on to. But anyways we had some other solid lessons with other investigators too and they are opening up and trusting us a lot more too.

Saturday was an interesting day.  I got pulled over and given a fix-it ticket because the right rear brake light was out which was pretty bad timing on my part due to the fact that it was working that same morning.   We have an RM who's really excited and enthusiastic to come out with us who got back from his mission in Brazil this past week as well.  He was actually an Elder Jones on his mission and he also has the same birthday as me so it's kind of weird.  We also finished power washing the deck for a widow on Wednesday as well. 

Things are going pretty well down here in the Catt Branch!
