Hunter Week 13: Chicken Feet

Good Morning everyone! It’s a cold snowy morning here in Utah today! I hope everyone had a great week! It’s been a wonderful start to the transfers here! On Tuesday we went to the Mission Office to met Elder Heeding. We had to do some introduction stuff and some basic training. Afterwards we had lunch together with all the trainers and greenies which was nice! Then we went back to our place and got everything unpacked. It was a little crazy with three of us so Elder Heeding had to sleep on the couch! Later that evening we had a lesson with Braxton, our recent convert, and we taught the Gospel of Jesus Christ to him. Elder Heeding did a great job at teaching! Our lesson at 8 canceled, so we mainly contacted the rest of the evening.

Wednesday we went contacting in the afternoon. And went by most of our potentials but not much luck since most people were at work. We were supposed to go out with a Ward Mission Leader but he canceled so we mostly contacted folks all day long.  Thursday we had weekly planning which went great, and we talked about all the people we are working with and set goals for the area and us as a companionship.  We taught Rebecca the last recent convert lesson. However now we are going to teach her son, Chris, who is 11 because now he wants to be baptized as well so we will still be seeing them. We taught a new investigator, Don Peck. He is a golden investigator! He asked us how he can be baptized! Haha! So we are going to start teaching him next week and set him on date ASAP.

Friday we had Heeding’s first District Meeting which went great! Then we went out contacting in the afternoon.  In the evening we met with Aymen and is cousins, Wor and James. We taught the plan of salvation, and they knew their stuff and asked lots of questions. We also set them on date for baptism in March! So it’s going well with them!

Saturday was the big day for Elder Denkers! We ate lunch at In-N-Out his favorite restaurant with our District Leader. Then we went to the Mission Office and helped him get rid of some stuff since his suitcase was too heavy. haha. After that they drove him down and dropped him off for his over 15 hour flight! So it was great to see him head to the Philippines, but I’m going to miss him for sure!  Later that evening we met with Jeremiah and set him on date as well for March.  So that was great! Sunday we had church and then a correlation meeting at 3. Then we went contacting in the evening and found a new family to work with the Owens. So it was a really good night!

Hope all y’all had a good week! Thanks for the love and support! Love y’all!
