Today was transfers. I got a new companion! His name is Elder Gemperline. I'm pretty excited to work with him here in Redmond 1st. It'll be a good transfer.
As for last week, it was a great week. We got to go play some soccer on P-day with a member which was pretty fun! On Tuesday, we found a new investigator part member family! They had been looking at the temple last Sunday, and some members invited them to church so they went and then we got a referral to go see them! We were really excited. We even gave them a church tour on Friday so they would be prepared to come to church.
We had a pretty cool miracle happen too. On Wednesday we were tracting and I happened to be complaining about how ineffective tracting was. Well, a few doors later, we were invited in to have dinner with this family and their teenager and her friends. It ended up being a great experience. It was a little awkward at first for the teenagers but as they talked with us we all got a little more comfortable and then they started to ask us questions. By the end, they were kinda bummed when we had to leave. What a great experience!
Those were the cool experiences that stood out this week. Elder Kelly got transferred away :( but I am excited to be with Elder Gemperline! It should be great fun.
