Things are moving along in Spokane Valley. We’re rolling into the sixth week of the transfer. Everyone know that’s miracle week! We’ll be having our Thanksgiving at the Young’s home with the Coates family.
We had a great last couple days. Good news! Brock’s Mom is supportive of his baptism. Now we are waiting for him to talk to his dad who lives in North Dakota about it, though we don’t need a signature from him for Brock to get baptized. We found Angel again. She seems to be going through some tough things. Hopefully she reaches for the life boat of the Gospel. She seemed very discouraged. We have an appointment with her tomorrow. One of the less-actives flopped on his attempt to quit smoking, but he’s trying it one more time starting today.
The work in the Stake is hastening! Elder Oaks met with all the Bishops and the Stake Presidents in the region this week. Our Stake President and Bishop seem energetic, excited, and ready to get serious about missionary work. The Stake President spoke in every Ward Sacrament Meeting, extending a very specific invitation from the Quorum of the Twelve for every family to add one investigator to the missionaries’ teaching pools. We’re excited to see how the members respond. We’ll be tracking how many new investigators are found by members in the stake. We also talked about starting a family history class in our Ward Council to help reactivate, retain, and find new investigators. We had a special meeting with the Stake High Counselor over family history work to discuss implementing similar things throughout the Stake. There are so many ways to share the Gospel! We will keep trying new ways! Pray that we are lead to new people to teach!
