Working Hard! - Week #38

Let me tell you, trying to keep busy serving in an YSA ward is pretty tough!  We call and text everyone on our ward roster to schedule appointments and only get a few responses back each week.  We met with a few of the Cadet's at the Air Force Academy and challenged them to bring their friends to the next lesson which they accepted.  We have 2 potential investigators that we are planning on meeting with this week which is really exciting.  We're hoping that their experience goes really well! I will let you know how things go.

We've got a busy month ahead of us.  We normally have one special meeting each month which rotate every three months (zone conference, specialized training, and interviews) So every 3 months the cycle starts over.  Well tomorrow we have specialized training, Friday we have interviews, and at the end of May we have Zone Conference.  That's so many meetings!  On top of that, next week Elder Jeffrey R. Holland is visiting our mission and we will have a special meeting with him as well.  I wonder why they're cramming them all together in a one month time period?

We really pushed everyone this week to try and step out of their comfort zone.  We invited so many people to come to church who don't regularly come.  We had a lot of members that we don't normally see at Sacrament Meeting yesterday and even a lot of people investigating the church.  This dry spell we've had is finally looking like it's going to end.  Hopefully this trend will continue.  So far we don't have anyone with a Baptismal date and we haven't really started teaching the lessons with anyone yet, but we should get there soon!

Thank you guys for your prayers and support, I wish you all the best.  It's so wonderful to hear from each of you every week. I hope you have a great week and I will talk to you all soon.

God is Great!

Elder Gillingwater
