Letter from Elder Pedro: Investigators, Puppies and Bingo!
Hola, This was a very busy week. On Monday we had the trainers meeting, President Toombs talked to us about the responsibility we have as trainers, he said that we will impact them into what kind of missionaries they are going to become. The Transfer van from Cheyanne was late coming in (it always is) so there was a 2 hour delay where we just sat there before we met out new companions. The Clark family is super awesome she is a Dog Groomer and has a million dogs. We spent this last week getting everything in order we visited every former investigator that has been taught in the ward and we taught 2 lessons that way, we have 4 set up for this week. We found a new investigator named Jennifer we tracted into her and taught her the first lesson on her door step. The week went pretty well we found 4 new investigators total we knocked on a lot of doors too, My companion is still pretty reluctant to speak when we knock on a door but I got him to start off once, so he is improving. So I got a new tracting approach for when the Broncos are playing, I basically have to start off with ''how's the game going?'' or else they don't want to hear from us. We tracted for 3 hours yesterday with no success and the last door we knocked on before going to dinner happened to be a less active member who hadn't been to church in 10 years he told us he has been thinking about church and he allowed us to share a lesson with him. Church was good the ward is really small for how big of an area it covers. We did a lot of service this week, the last Elders had us all booked up this week that was really stressful because instead of working we were tied to service every day. On Thursdays we got to a puppy shelter and we wash puppies it was actually pretty fun. Thursday afternoons we go to an old folks home and we call bingo. We helped a guy take out a wall on Friday. I am excited for next week I am going on two exchanges and we have a ton of appointments set up.
