 Lessons!  We got some!  Woot!  Only like 4... but STILL.

So the first was an older couple who are neighbors to our Bishop.  The guy recently lost his sister in an unexpected accident.  She was around 70 and she was carrying pizza up the stairs and fell backwards and broke...important stuff, her neck or something.  Anyway, tragedy is a perfect opportunity for missionaries so we took advantage of it and was able to talk to them about opposition being a part of life, Jesus Christ, the Atonement, etc.  It was superb.

So because of lack of teaching pool, we're trying different tactics to try and soften people's hearts.  One of them is service tracting.  Basically we dress up in p-day clothes and knock on people's door offering to do community service.  We've only done it a couple times, but we actually found someone!  She met with missionaries before when she lived in Mesa.  She said she felt bad making us pull her weeds, but I was pretty persuasive and she let us do it.  Long story short, we have some teaching opportunities coming up.

We taught this young guy named Mike.  We're going to have to refer him to the YSA missionaries but first we're going to baptize him.  Just kidding, we're just going to spark his interest a little more before handing him off.  Not too much to talk about other than we shared a video with him and I'm pretty sure he was drunk.  Woo!

  We taught another couple yesterday about the importance of reading the scriptures.  She tried to give us some crap about how she doesn't have time and blah blah blaah, so we told her that God recognizes the sacrifice when we make it, even if it's just 5 minutes and that he'll bless us even more.  By the end, they committed to read the Book of Mormon as a couple every day and pray too!  Pretty neat!

Still don't know about transfers, but I guess I'll let you know next week!
Love y'all
