Elder Mitchell Oliphant - August 11, 2014

Well this week ill just start by answering questions. Yes i got the new bike, it was like 500 dollars but i got it. And I love it, its super nice, so it will last my entire mission. I have learned that i hate spending money.. hahaha. The ward im in is okay, its just some of the members on the ward counsel really irritate me cause they are so difficult and uncooperative sometimes. We rarely get fed by the members, except for this one little old Italian lady that makes home made pasta, It is to die for! Its super authentic and really really good, she hand makes the noodles. She is the greatest! Oh haha ether my pants were fitted wrong or ive lost a lot of weight.. all the suit pants are to big now... So im going to have someone adjust them. Your prayers have been working cause the work has been improving alot this week. Our ward had a salmon bake this week, and we thought that it would be a great opportunity for our investigators to come and get to know the ward members better. Three of them came, Angelique, and the Crawfords. All we did was introduce them to a few select ward members and they totally took them under their wing and were super kind to them. So they all had a really good experience, Angelique ended up coming to church and having a great experience. Also that Sunday we were out seeing RCLAs and i got the feeling  to turn around and go see Scottie, i was a little reluctant at first cause we had dropped him due to his unwillingness to progress. But after we talked with him for a while we found out that he had a huge change of heart and was ready to change, so we invited him to go on a church tour with us this week and to church with us this sunday, we also gave him a Restoration pamphlet to read before the tour. He also invited one of his friends- Brian Green {a less active we have been working with}  to the church tour. And on top of that the family history consultants will be there, so we will introduce them to that {our Zone goal is to use Family History in teaching}. So thats how much your prayers have been working. BTW Ive started learning the importance of Family History work, so im going to start doing that on my P Days, I hope you guys continue to do it to. Our ward actually has a goal to reach 100,000 names indexed in a few months, we are well on our way to that so i think they are actually extending it to 200,000!

 I enjoy hearing these storys so keep sending them! Katie thats a hilarious story about patches! I miss them all! Hahaha and that sucks that nobody had a clue of what they were doing on the backpacking trip.. Your a stud for carrying that backpack for Nick Zatiz. Also i hope you continue getting better dad, and yes im staying fit, i do 250 pushups every morning and 100 pull ups, and run a mile, and then bike all day. hahaha, well i love you all and hope you have a wonderful week.
