4 New Investigators!

The week goes by so fast!
This week we found 4 new investigators.
Jessica is a former investigator, who has a crazy life, and doesn't really believe in anything, but felt something, so wants us to come back.  She was going to come to church last week, but her kid got head lice!  So no fun.
Brother Lee, missionaries have been teaching for the past 6 years, so we are picking him up again and see if he will keep commitments.
Brian and Patty have met missionaries in the past, and actually called us over as we where walking by.  We taught a little bit about the book of mormon and then set up an appointment for this Saturday.
Thursday we went down to Lake Placid, to work in Elder Checketts area.  He has some sweet people he is working with, so we hope a VISA missionary will be able to get here, but no news yet.
Instead of district meeting this transfer, we are having zone meetings (not zone conference - just a big district meeting with the whole zone) every week in our zone.  It is going to be intense.  We started the transfer with an MTC address from Elder Holland from January, talking about the areas where missionaries need to improve: 1)study effectively - 2) plan effectively - 3) teach clearly and towards commitments.  This week president is coming, and teaching on effective study.  I am way excited!
I love you all, and hope you have a great week!
