Elder Oliver and I are doing better and better every week. Our goals keep going up and we are seeing solid progress. One lady is super prepared because we weren't able to see her at all last week, but we just stopped by to invite her to church and she went by herself and was asking tons of questions. We are also teaching lots of part member families which means trying to get kids to understand simple doctrine. A lot of times kids don't even know why the Gospel is important. We need to always apply it to their life so that they know it for themselves.
A couple days ago we had our semi-annual interviews with President. First we taught him as a companionship the first point of the first lesson which is God is our Loving Heavenly Father. He was amazed of how good we taught him especially because of Elder Oliver. He says that you can see it in his eyes haha. Then President talked to me about the ward and something I didn't really want to talk about, SCHOOL. I gotta figure out when I'm going home either to catch the fall semester and go home a month early or extend a month in which case I wouldn't be able to make it anyways. To be continued...

  1. If you feel like you have done all you were sent to do, come home
    if there is something you feel isn't done stay and finish the work.
    That is my (mom's)advice to both you and Elder Phillips. You will know when
    Its time to come home.

  2. Good advice Justin. I couldn't have said it better!
