Seahurst Week #5

This week we wanted to focus on finding a lot of new investigators so we decided to make this our "Tocar Week". Or in other works "Knocking Week". When we are planning for every day we always put backups in case our appointments fall through or we have extra time; so, this week we decided to put knocking as ALL the back ups, unless we really felt like there was someone we needed to go see. We found about the same amount of new investigators as usual, but it was a good thing because pretty much all of our set lessons this week went though and we have some amazing, very spiritual lessons! 

We had a Branch Thanksgiving Feast this week and it was amazing!!! Around 1/3rd of the people who came we're members of the church and it was a really great chance for people to get to know each other. The youth put on a cute little play about the Pilgrims and the Indians and it was adorable.

 The Branch here is really united and they really are an amazing to me of how a Ward or Branch should work. They always work together and are always there to support each other and help each other grow in their testimonies.

We had one investigator come to church this week. We ran into him one night this week when we were leaving from an appointment and started talking to him. We set up a time to come teach him on Sunday morning. We went to the appointment yesterday and taught him about the restoration and he seemed really interested. We invited him to come to church with us and he told us that he didn't know if he should. He'd never been to any kind of church ever in his like and he was scared. So after we assured him that church isn't a scary place and that it's a place where the spirit is really strong, he agreed to come! When we got to the church he was sitting in the chapel with us and he turns and says, "Wow it feels really difference here. I hope this is what I've been looking for." The whole Branch really welcomed him and we're hoping he'll choose to continue to come to church!

One of our amazing investigators ended up moving this week and that was really sad. She was really starting to progress and read the scriptures and pray. She didn't realize that we wouldn't be able to come down and teach her in their new apartment in Federal Way, and was so sad when we told her. She kept telling us to get special permission to come teach her. But even though it can't be us, she's still really wanting the missionaries there to come and see her. It's crazy how much I absolutely love these people and I'm so glad she is still wanted to learn because the gospel will bless her life so so much!

I hope that you all have an amazing Thanksgiving!! We get to have a little get together as a mission and have thanksgiving dinners with members so it should be a great time out here. Transfers are also next week, so we'll see what happens! I'm hope that I have the chance to continue to serve her in the Seahurst Branch, but if not, I'll go where the Lord calls me. 

Con Amor,
Hermana Pier
