May 30, 2016 - Elder Biehn's Weekly Update

Hey everyone!

So unfortunately I don't have very much to report on this week. Not a lot happened lesson wise. I think we had a total of 3 lessons this week? Yeah, so not very much. But we did have success this week despite our low numbers! So the past week, the English elders gave us a referral for someone they talked to. They said he didn't hardly speak any English so they just sent us right over to talk to the guy. No big deal, we get these all the time. But man, this guy is sweet! I don't think they realize how big of a gold mine they just gave to us! When we visited him he was totally engaged in the lesson. The second time we went by, his friend participated as well. Then we invite them to church and they said they would come (but I had my doubts because a lot of people say they will come and never do). But right before church, I give him a call and he says he still wants to! So we scramble a ride for him and both of them came! Me and Elder Pickett were ecstatic because this is one of the first new investigators we've had come to church and keep their commitments! They've been reading and came to church! It is honestly one of the best feelings ever to see some investigators you have actually listen to you and do the things you ask them to do. I could tell that they really enjoyed church and I'm thinking we could really use this to grab their attention. Sacrament meeting was awesome, the classes were perfect, and it was just a great day at church!

Another thing that is starting to work really well is the members. Me and Elder Pickett are really starting to get a good relationship with them all because we've been doing a lot of member visits this past few weeks. We even got fed every meal on Saturday! That has happened very few times on my mission! It was awesome! Here's a
