President Morby taught a lesson with us…


Glad to hear that spring break is full swing for you guys. Everybody is off doing things for spring break this week, but I don't think it will be too much of an issue for us as far as teaching lessons and such. The Read's are off to the coast, so we'll be home alone for the week (except for their son who has to work).

Our week was pretty good! Our zone conference was really insightful, I always enjoy them. Our mission president did in fact come with us to our lesson on Tuesday! It was really weird seeing him there, but it wasn't as nerve-wracking as I thought it would be actually. He chimed in with comments from time to time, and was quick to answer some questions (which was nice). Our lesson went well, we ended up having the guy we taught invited one of his friends from his church to come and sit in, so it was actually really sweet! President Morby and I talked about later on during the week on the phone, had some laughs about it. He said it's a different realm being out in the field with the elders, and he worriedly thought we were going to get into a bible-bash with him! It was a sweet lesson though and we enjoyed having him!

We had quite a few people at church this week, it was awesome! We had our investigator come to church for he first time! Not only that but we also had two less-active families come, it was awesome! We didn't actually teach a whole lot this week, but we had a few lessons so that was good. We're doing a lot of "personal finding"- seen some success with that. We both had the thought to knock doors on Alexander Street and ended up finding a guy we talked with about the Book of Mormon for a solid 30 minutes, it was sweet! I was feeling very sick that day with a cold but I still went out later in the evening and luckily we found that guy there. He's leaving back to SW Portland in a day or two so hopefully we planted a seed with him!

Things are going good with us though, we're just keeping on and working hard. Not too much to write about this week.

love you, talk to you next week!
