Getting used to the Trio

Hello everybody!

This week was pretty good and the first full week of the tri-panionship. Its been fun getting to know my new companion and at the same time learning how to teach with 3 people. It definitely makes you learn and grow really quickly.

We had some miracles happen this week. We put 3 people on date for August. We are excited for them and are praying that they will be able to receive a solid answer by that time.

Funny story about the 3rd lady. We were teaching the restoration and the wife had to run outside for a bit so we kept teaching the husband. When we got to the first vision, he started telling the story. He then told us that he was baptized in 1982, was active for 10 years and then hasnt been to church since. We were floored! We had no idea that he was a member and we had talked with him a few times before that. After a few minutes his wife came back and we finished teaching the Restoration and then extended a baptismal invite and she accepted. We are praying she will start coming to church and receive an answer about the book of mormon.

Sacrament meeting was interesting this past sunday. The young men talked about their experience at scout camp and high adventure. It was extremely difficult to translate for it though. You don't use "tent" or "raft" or other words like that when you are teaching the missionary lessons. We just kept looking at each other as people were telling the story and then we would try to translate it the best we could. Hopefully with time it will get better.

Thank you for the prayers and the letters. I hope you all have a great week.
