We had a great week this week! I'm a little short on time, so this weekly update will be a little bit shorter.
We began the week with Zone Conference on Tuesday. President Griffin talked about how he has had a three year plan for the mission to bump up the work. He recently began phase 3 and our mission had 257 new investigators with 118 baptismal dates for this week. While our area hasn't had any baptismal dates yet, we have found 35 new investigators. We're hoping that we will be able to get some people with dates soon!
This week we had lots of lessons. While we still got our 14 hours of finding in, we got 19 lessons in. That's a good amount for us, we have been averaging 5-7 this transfer, so it was nice to bump those up.
We also got seven hours of service in. Most of our service was done at the local food pantries; where we were able to meet tons of new people and our cards out and even a couple new investigators!
You guys won't believe this....we got officially accepted as members of the Spring City Pentecostal Worship Center! Now before you guys think I've gone full apostate, let me explain: they consider anybody who goes to their church twice "members"...so technically we're members, but we don't believe the doctrine. Chill fam.
We held another lemonade stand at Roane County Park and was very successful. We made a very nice video on our way out that I'll attach for Lucy to post as well.
Sorry again guys it's short this week. I'll make up for it this week I promise!
