Hey guys, sorry for the short letter, but this week was pretty rough, we were trying to find investigators and having no success, then the days that we planned some time to go out and contact and knock had multiple things put us behind schedule or make us leave the apartment late. One of the most exciting parts about the week was the fact that we were able to get one of our investigators to come with us to our dinner with his cousin, who is one of the members. Our investigator, Rafael, was able to learn a lot and the member, Seth, was able to testify as well as clarify some things for Rafael. I feel like it was mutually beneficial, and it helped Rafael be open to the teaching.
In our search for investigators, a name of one of the people that I contacted with Elder Smith came to mind, and we were able to teach him this last week, and he is extremely open to the teachings and is receptive. He seems to have the true desire to learn the gospel as well as act on it, but sadly he will be out of town for two weeks for work. We have high hopes for him when he returns.
Other than that, there was a bunch of contacting and a couple of good new member lessons with the Chavez family.
I love you guys,
Elder Stanley Scott Dye
