Dear Friends and Family,Time really is starting to fly by out here on the mission. We are already starting the second to last week of the transfer. So by the end of next week I will receive news regarding if I will be staying another transfer in Glen Carbon, or if I will be transferred to a new area.
This week are plan on focusing a lot of our efforts on finding new investigators and to get our investigators to progress. Hopefully we will talk again with our investigator from Highland who did the work for the Kansas City Temple! We also have a lot of less active names to go and visit. There are several less active families that I really want to start working with, I decided that one of my top goals on my mission is to reactivate a family! So we are going to hit the pavement hard this week and work as hard as we can and really make these last two weeks count since I don't know if I'll be here next transfer.
Thank You to all of my family and loved ones who continue to support me while I am out here serving a mission. This week I hit my 4 month mark! Haha! 20 more months to serve. I realized that I have learned so much, its hard to even put it into words. I have been able to experience a lot and meet a lot of great people who have made an impact on my life. I can definitely feel myself changing out here, but it is a good change! A change that come through our loving heavenly Father, true conversion.
Sorry I don't have any crazy stories from this week, although I am not sure I could have a story that quite tops our apartment fire, or getting our car stuck on ice and mud! I bet I will have a good story to tell next week for y'all. However I did find out that the Subway Restaurant in East St. Louis has like an inch of bullet proof glass from ceiling to floor between the workers and customers. Man, I love East St Louis...... and subway.
Till next week, Peace on The Streets..
