Long but fast week

Hey everybody!

So this week was pretty good. It was kind of long and at the same time it went pretty fast. It was probably just because there was a lot of stuff going on that took a lot of time. We had zone conference on Friday which went pretty good. It was a lot of reminders of things that we have been taught before.

Something we are starting this week are English classes. We are getting trained on Wednesday and we will be teaching them 2 times a week until the ward finds some people to replace us. Apparently they have been trying to get English classes going here for a couple of years but its just been a slow process but then my companion and I started bugging everyone about it and taking the initiative and started the ball rolling. We are hoping it will help keep us busy during the slow summer months. There are a lot of people that are interested in learning English. 

One of our investigators is a pastor a 4 square church here in Sunnyside and he has been meeting with the missionaries for the past few months and this week we had a really good lesson with him. We asked him if he has prayed about the book of Mormon and he said its really hard for him because he feels like he needs to read more of it to be able to do that. We felt like it was because sees that there is a possibility that it could be true and if he prays, he will get an answer and will lose his job as a pastor. He is still willing to visit with us and its pretty fun to talk with him because he actually understands the stuff he reads and he feels the spirit. Also one of the things he is having a hard time accepting is that there is more to the plan of salvation than he is used to and he claims its not in the bible so Elder Chase and I spent a companion study to find a bunch of scriptures support the plan of salvation in the bible. It was exciting to see our beliefs in the bible plain as day.

Have a great week!
Elder Young
