Mr. President

Hey everyone,

Week one of the transfer was great! If each week of the rest of the transfer goes as quick as this one, i am in trouble. Time is going too fast. Elder Nilsson and I are having a blast! I feel comfortable teaching with him and things are moving very smoothly. I am super grateful he is my companion. We had a super crazy week with transfers and MLC and meetings, but it was so great! We have been able to find some new people and things are moving forward in our area.

Each transfer, our mission has a theme that we focus on for the transfer, and right now our theme is, "teach people, not lessons." I love this theme because this gospel gives everyone a personal relationship with their Savior and Father, and everyone has their own needs that can be taken care of, we just need to follow this Spirit to help us know what they need. 

Eric was supposed to be baptized this week, but for a couple reasons we weren't able to baptize him. Hopefully he will be ready in a couple weeks. Gyan is still doing great! We are hoping to baptize him this weekend. 

This week we went to see one of our members who likes us to come and read the Book of Mormon with her, but she wasn't feeling well, so we thought we would stop by the President and see if he was home. The guards of his house are super nice, we just walked right up to the security check at his house and talked to the bodyguards and police and asked them if we could give the president a Book of Mormon to read. So we gave it to the bodyguard to give to him. We are going to follow up this week ;) 

Sunday, our stake president held a meeting with all the missionaries in our stake and we talked about how the missionary work is going and how our relationships are with our wards. It was a great meeting, and we were able to discuss a lot with him. He also scheduled to proselyte with all the missionaries in our zone in the coming months. It is awesome to see everyone's love of the gospel and willingness to share it. 

Everything is going great! I'm excited to see what will come ahead in the next few months! I love my mission, and i am so grateful to serve the Lord. 
Have a good week!
