Hope everyone has had a great week! This past week has just seemed to have blown by. We had transfer calls, and I am leaving! :( Sad day! Toppenish is amazing, and will forever be my "greenie" area here in the WYM. And I still have a lot more time in my mission and I may be able to come back and serve here again! That would be a lot of fun! Anyways, this week I will be heading up to Wenatchee!!
This week we've been able to slowly but surely start adding to our teaching pool! And we have been able to meet some amazing people! But missionary work isn't just going after those that aren't members, it's about going after those that are lost. Whether they know about the gospel or not. And that is something we had focused on here in Toppenish. Our first Sunday here there was a handful of families, but yesterday while sitting in Sacrament meeting, I was able to look around and see many more faces, the faces of the people who we had reached out to those who were Less Active. One Hermana in the branch came up to me, and asked when I was leaving for Transfers and I said "Miercoles/Wednesday" and she asked for me and my companion to come over and see her and her family once more before I leave. She then told me, that we were the first missionaries who ever came to visit them, and the first people to ever say that they were missed when they didn't come to church. WOW! Testimony builder: Missionary work. It's not only for the new Investigators, it's for everyone. Member and Investigator alike.
Hope everyone has an amazing week! Can you guys believe it's already almost August?!?! Where did the time go?!
