Fall Weather and the Work Moves Forward

Howdy everyone!

Our week was awesome!

Today is a beautiful day. I was expecting it to be Hot and Humid like it usually is, and walked out and was cold! YAY! I think it was 63 this morning when we left around 10:5...I think fall is finally here...well so people say its supposed to be cooler this week..yay :D.

We finally have gotten a hold of some of our investigators this past week! We saw Mario last night for the first time in forever....he is going through alot right now. :/, keep him in your prayers for us :D We have an appointment with him tommorow evening at 600 at the church. We are excited.We plan on setting a date with him for baptism!

We have a new way of counting lessons, we no longer count lessons with members in our total lessons. So this week we taught a total of 34 including with members and 21 minus the members visits. So it's going to be interesting this next week. We have a goal of around 30 I think minus member visits. 43 with.

President said that our MV's (member visits) were up way too high, so that's why is he is doing this. We are now only counting lessons with a member present, other lessons, and Recent Convert/Less actives..aka RCLA's. So things are looking good though for us.

The ward loves us, which is good, because they haven't had two missioanries they have both liked in a while. :D So thats a good thing. And exchanges/splits are going very very good. We have one every day but Friday...Friday is stake temple day, so everyone will be at the temple. Which I would have them be there.

This week is going to be a good week..We have a "Special meeting" tommorow in McMinville, it pretty much is a "mini zone conference". It will be a follow up of things that we did in our last meeting.
Our zone hit our goal for dates set this month! In an amazing miracle weekend. Woot woot! No DM(district meeting) this next week due to the meeting, so that will allow is a chance to get more lessons and more finding in.

Oh, last week we helped a LA (less active) member get his restaurant open. It's called 3Brothers Deli..It is really good food. We plan on going to eat there on Wed. We helped put up pictures, cleaned things etc. etc... But yeah, the food is awesome! So if anyone is in the M'Boro area go there. It's right off the square. We also met alot of cool people while we were there.

This Saturday night we find out if either of us get transferred...One of us most likely will be, since we have been together for 3 months, I am hoping I stay, but whatever the Lord wants and wherever he wants me to go I will go.

GENERAL CONFERENCE WEEK!!!! I hope other people are as excited as I am to listen to Gen Con.

I am excited to hear from E.Ballard and Holland, only because I have heard Ballard in person. I am pretty excited to see him speak.

Oh....almost forgot to tell you about an investigator we got on Saturday. His name is Lawrence. He has been taught by missionaries previously when he lived in Jackson, TN. We have been trying to meet with him since the end of August...he has been busy with school. But we were trying to figure out what to do on Saturday. We started calling a bunch of our investigators, and no one was answering their phone. But Lawerence answered! WOOO WHOOO! So we finally got to meet with him this past Saturday.We met him at MTSU's Libraray...Starbucks of all places. blah...anyways we just got to know him, asked him what he knew, and what he had been taught in the past by past missionaries where he was. We have a return appointment with him this coming Saturday in between sessions. We are also hoping to set a date with him, and possibly with a PM family!

So October is going to be a good month...I can't believe its Oct. Already! AHH! oh well..gotta move forward.

Our mission I think only got 24 baptisms this month..for the month of September, our zone goal for October is 40!

Wow! It will be awesome if I am able to be here when we get our goal. But I will let yall know next monday what happend to me in transfers.

Other than that things are going well...hope every one is doing well, and loving and living life to the fullest! love yall :D

Thanks for all your prayers and support.

I love each and every one of you :D
