First off. OH YEAHYUH LETTTTSSSS GOOOOOOOO!!!!! that is awesome that Jeff is out already. Blessed
Anyway i think you already know because of the others emails but the Church's missionary board had a worldwide broadcast that told us some changes in our work. They changed 2 things. One, our schedule and B our key indicators.
The schedule change: we used to plan at night but now we plan in the morning and our lunch is shorter and we plan our companion study when it best fits our time. It is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
nice. I like it a lot. It used to be kind of burdensome to come in and
plan at night because if it went over time, we would have no time to
write in journals and do other stuff but now we just come in at 9 and
write in journal and go to bed. So nice. That was one of the purposes of
it. So nice. Less stressful.
The key indicators: we used to have 9, now we only have 4. They are,
investigators baptized and confirmed
investigators with a baptismal date
investigators who attended sacrament meeting
I think its nice because it helps us really focus on the things that are really important.
And again we see that these changes fall into the Lords way of doing things, line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little there a little. (2 nephi 28:30 ) :)
To be honest, I feel as if not a ton happened this week, either that or my memory is going bad. But we had a lesson with one of our investigators, she talks a lot but we brought a member with us that also talks a lot. Now you might think that this would be a bad idea because then they would both just talk a ton and we wouldn't teach much. You would be correct but with our member she talks a lot but she would stop our investigator from going on these long tangents so it was kinda nice, hahah. Sounds awful but our investigators need some one like that so that they can answer her questions with her interrupting and asking another question. So it worked out. It was good. But, like I said, didn't really get to teach what we wanted but I still think it was good. The member got really excited for missionary work again so if anything it helped her. I'm good with that.
I love you guys.
Love, Elder Richards
