so this morning an investigator agreed to follow the example of Jesus Christ by being baptized by someone holding the priesthood authority of God! way awesome! finding through members is in my opinion the one and only way to find people to teach. forget tracting. i like to see results and tracting just does not cut it. President told me that the two previous missionaries that were here had like uber anxiety about tracting. they couldn't take all the insults and ridicule. me though i just smile and walk away. as D&C 75 says (i think 75 lol) shake the dust off of your feet onto the porches of those who will not recieve you and depart speedily.
this ward is totally dead. the other two missionaries that were here only taught 10 lessons in six weeks. my companion and I taught 10 lessons in just this last week. i think that if we dont see results here this transfer president is going to shut it down and just leave senior missionaries here to do less active work. but we do have 3 solid investigators that should be baptized soon. like i said one already committed so we are gonna set the date this week or next hopefully. only one problem he is hard to meet with cuz he has a busy schedule.
