4th week in the Spokane, Washington Mission

I made it through my first transfer! transfers are tomorrow and Elder Wilson and I are staying together so I'm happy about that, and we are also getting a third companion named Elder Smith so that will be cool. Well we had a really good week. We found 7 new investigators and taught about 20 lessons. We had a way good lesson with this guy named Nick, he’s 18, we taught him about the restoration and then I asked him to be baptized and he agreed! So that will be on Nov. 7! so now we are gonna meet with him a few times a week and make sure he’s really ready to make that covenant and make sure he understands everything that it involves! We’ve become way good friends with this awesome member family named the Schlerfs, they are way cool and have amazing testimonies.. So we are going to introduce Nick to them to get him some friends in our ward. Nick is in the 22nd ward so that will be really good because they haven't had a baptism in a couple years. We also had a way good lesson with a less active 18 year old in the 15th ward named Cody and we went with one of the high priests, Brother Kunz (he’s pretty closely related to President Monson!) anyways, Brother Kunz pretty much straight up told Cody that he needs to go on a mission, so we had a good lesson about that and I was able to tell him about my experience and why I decided to serve a mission and gave him Doctrine and Covenants 31 to have him read and pray about and he said he would and things are looking good there. Another new investigator we got this week is Jeff, he’s a manager for an apartment complex that we tracted one day, so that’s good because usually the managers just kick us out, but we taught him the restoration and he seemed open to it and we explained the Book of Mormon to him and he said he was going to read it before we ever even gave it to him so that was exciting, we haven’t been able to have a follow up lesson yet but were hoping for tomorrow and we'll get his thoughts on everything, and teach him the plan of salvation. So ya, a lot of good things will be happening in the next couple of weeks that I’m really excited for. Tonight we are teaching the German girl, Sarah, again and we are doing a family home evening with her and the family she is staying with. Well we had our meeting with Elder Bednar on Saturday. It was awesome!! It was cool because there wasn’t any lecture or prepared talk or anything like that, it was just a whole 3 hours of questions and answers with him. For most of the time it was him asking the questions but then he opened it up for us to be able to ask him questions, he said for the most part never again will we have an opportunity like this where we can ask an apostle of the Lord any question we want. So ya.. That was awesome!! But he did make us promise to not really repeat anything that was said in the meeting, so just know that it was a very spiritual experience, one that I’ll never forget. I know this church is true, I know that Elder Bednar is literally Jesus Christ's apostle and that President Monson is Gods prophet to the world today. There is no question, there is no doubt.
I love you
