August 6th, 2012

This was a good week.
     We met some of the nicest less actives this week.  These very
nice less active members very nicely told us they were not coming back
to church, but that if we wanted we could have dinner at their house.
Win-lose there but I think they can come back, we just need to find
out more about some of their concerns so we can help them resolve
them.  Besides that most of the people we taught this week actually
came to church.  There was actually one less active that we ran into
this week, and then he came to church.  We asked him directions one
day and he walked us to a house.  As we were walking we found out he
was a former member and invited him to church.  After a brief
interaction like that I didn't honestly expect him to come to church,
but then on sunday as we were waiting for people up he came. We ended
up with a very large number at church and quite a few of less actives
and investigators.
    This week one of our investigator families asked us if we could
give them longer reading assignments.  We usually give them a reading
assignment of a chapter or so to read before our next visit.  Then
they asked us if we could give them longer reading assignments so they
have more to read.  Yup, they love the Book of Mormon.  Yeah, they are
very excited to be baptized and I am excited to have the opportunity
of teaching them.  Another great less active family told us they never
want to miss church again.  The work moves forward.

          I would say their is a very good chance I will be
transferred this week.  Transfer day is coming up and I have been here
longer than Elder De Jesus.  This is a great area with great people,
but I shall probably be moving on.

Have a good week, keep your head up, and smile.

Elder Nathaniel J. Merrill
