|Elder Kestner & his companion Elder Stewart from Nampa, ID|
Dear Family & Friends,
Another week gone by. I am now in the last week of this transfer. I can't believe I've been in Phenix City for 6 weeks! This week went by really quick due to a few things. We were busy and we now have 6 new investigators and one of our investigators from a few weeks ago is on date for baptism. He is on date for October 31st. His name is Matt and he is 40 years old and he just married a member. He is growing so much and getting stronger in the Gospel. I love seeing investigators progress.
We went with our recent convert, AJ, to the home of a less-active family. AJ bore his testimony in pure simplicity. AJ has progressed so much since his Baptism on May 1st.
I find that the most effective means of finding come from referrals and with help from members. The members are great here and they sure feed us well.
All in all, it was a good week. 6 new investigators and we are improving for sure. I am getting 'thicker skin' in relation to my companion and others. I find that if I fire back what they put out, it all works out great.
I hope your week in DC was good and that the funeral service was good.
Love you mom!
