Yikes..my birthday is less than a month away..i still don't even know what i want yet! haha..maybe one of those 12 dollar watches from Wal-Mart..mine just broke. =( Well..this week has been amazing! We've been in Goldsboro from Tuesday-Thursday for leadership training meetings from 9 in the morning, to 4 in the afternoon all 3 days. It was a lot of great stuff! Supposedly the greatest thing that's happened to the missionary program since "Preach My Gospel." It wasn't anything new..it was just an entirely different view of how we are to teach..and i like it a lot! While in Goldsboro..i got to stay with Elder Tibbitts..whom is one of my past companions! He's actually my mostest favoritest companion in the whole wide world! And guess what!! Tuesday night..i got to work with him, as well as my Trainer, Elder Condie, who is an Assistant to the President right now and he decided to come with us in a 3 some..so it was pretty cool being able to work with 2 of my past companions and seeing how much we've all grown since we were together! But the training went really well..infact..we now have 2 baptismal dates! One is with a 16 year old named Ethan Waycott..his brother Tim got baptized in July, and now he's back in town and wants to get baptized. Then on Friday, we were able to meet with Brandon Struyk again and he accepted the invitation to be baptized on October 9th..which is funny because his wife was baptized on October 10th! Unfortunately..Brandon was not able to make it to church yesterday, and we still don't know why yet. =( keep praying for him! Then we were able to meet with a man named David Starnes, who is dating a member here. David is in the Army and is stationed up in Fort Drum, NY..which is funny because my companion's real dad is the 1st counselor in the branch presidency up in Fort Drum..coincidence? I think not. =) But we taught him on Friday for the first time..and then at the end of the lesson, he told us that he beleived EVERYTHING! He wants to get baptized..but he might be headed back to Fort Drum here pretty soon..so we are gonna keep working with him and the Lord's will shall be done! =)
Well..i hope everyone is doing great! I love/miss y'all!
