Morton IL 9.28.15

Pretty good week this last one was. The biggest challenge was probably just trying to improve our area book. There's a ton of crappy leads that don't go anywhere so we are trying to weed out the tares from the wheat. We have a ton of people who say we can come back and we teach them and set up appointments then they never go through. Our most promising investigators are probably Rebecca Richardson and Rebecca Keim.
I have developed an obsession for goals this week. My head has just been spinning with all the stuff I have been trying to keep track of. Writing it all out and checking your progress really helps a lot. I've been trying to up the level of intensity with each phase of the work. It is exhausting to put forth so much effort. I'm just praying that I will be blessed with an increased capacity to stay at this level and I know I will get it as long as I sustain it the best I can on my own. I'm seeing a lot more miracles with the increase in effort tho. Not that I was lazy before, I just felt like I have been plateauing so I need to push myself harder.
So our ward mission leader, Brother Mehr, got called to be bishop on Sunday! That was crazy I totally wasn't expecting that. He's gonna be an awesome bishop. They didn't call a new WML tho so I don't know how that is going to work out.
We had a weird thing happen this week. The district leader called us and told us that our weekly district meeting was going to be changed from Wednesday to Tuesday and it would be in Bloomington instead of in Morton. We show up and President Griffin and the assistants and the technology specialist elders and some sister training leaders were all there. I got scared and thought I did something... We had a big meeting with the whole zone and President organized like a missionary blitz thing. He split up all the leaders he brought with him with all the missionaries and we made a bunch of trios and just went out and got "on the job training". We were paired up with our zone leader, Elder Pierre, so it didn't feel that special, just like another exchange. But President took turns going around to every companionship and interviewing everyone. It was a pretty cool experience.
That's pretty much my whole week. Hope everyone has a good day, Love you all!

Oh yeah there was also this weird lady who has studied about every different type of religion there is plus all different kinds of mythology and she has joined them all into one "faith" that she has for herself. It was the most ridiculous conversation I've ever had.. I can't describe it, I only hope that in the next life we can watch replays of what happened here and I want you all to watch it with me.

so we came up to this house and there was this dog. It wanted to kill
us I thought. It came up to the left side of the fence, where the car
is at, and jumped up on it. I was like oh man that thing can almost
jump over we are gonna die. then it goes over to the other side. you
can kinda see where its broken off, and the dog jumped over that
because it was a little lower. man i had my knife out so fast, but
then turns out it wasnt mean. it just started licking us and running
around. It was scary, but i made it

then theres the classic Illinois house. (Besides Naperville) A small
little house and then they park their Mustang on the lawn. Like no
joke this is just about every house. Either Mustangs or Camaros,
Chargers or Challengers.
