Hello awesome family!!
This week we have been doing a lot of good. We were blessed to find a family that is interested in the gospel. When we taught them Monday evening the father gathered all his kids together and we sat on the back porch. It was an awesome lesson, led by the Spirit. They have five kids, four boys and a girl with one on the way. They didn't come to church Sunday, but they for sure are going to be there next Sunday. The whole Branch is getting excited and they want to be involved in the teaching process.
We are also teaching a former investigator, along with her Mom, and sometimes one of her brothers. She had been investigating for two years. She just needs a testimony of the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith. We are trying to get the father involved, he is really nice. What is funny, too, is that we are teaching another one of her brothers completely separate of the others, we actually talked to him before we talked to her. He is a cool guy, hard working, loves baseball cards, he has boxes and boxes of them. We are really excited with the people we are teaching.
I love it here in Plymouth! The members are awesome, they make sure we are well taken care of here. The three exchanges a week is going really well. We are getting less-actives seen, and as we plan investigators to go see we will have great progress.
I went on exchanges this week up to Mishawaka. It was weird being back in the big city. It was fun though, we had a good time and found a lot of potential investigators.
We had Zone Conference this last week. I was mistaken with which general authority was going to be there. Lynn G. Robbins came and spoke to us and trained us. He is a good teacher and smart. It was a sweet meeting. When we were driving there we got a little lost, instead of taking an hour and twenty minutes to get there it took two and a half hours. It was fun though, we got there safely.
I love it here! I love the people! I love my companion! I love being a missionary.
I love you all! May the Spirit be with you!
Elder Durrant
