Annapolis, MD - April 11, 2016

My favorite scripture... That's a hard question, but I'll say John 14:26-27 especially 27. I really like parables too, like the prodigal son or the talents. Jesus is such a good teacher.

My week was ok. We had some cool stuff happen. We usually work with less actives as much as we can. We don't have too many members in the biking area. Most of the members live in Edgewater. This week we didn't get in with the less actives we normally do, but we met some we have barely had contact with which was good. So one of our investigators actually dropped us because his sister convinced him to join her church. Yah it was a bummer. The good thing was the father of this member who's wife recently passed away is starting to get pretty interested in the church. We have an awesome relationship with him. He's such a nice guy. He might come to church next week. Then we had a member from DC call us and ask for our help. She needed us to help carry in her friend from the hospital who is a nonmember. We checked up on him again on Saturday and he wants to join the church! He's read the Book of Mormon and has known about it for a long time. He said just give him two weeks to recover before we start teaching him more lessons. I don't think I'll be here to teach him, but it's pretty awesome. Then the fiancé of a member moved back and is planning on staying a while. We're having dinner with the couple and her family on Friday to talk about taking the lessons again and the Book of Mormon. The family that we are teaching also made some cool progress and say they're coming to church next week.

The rain and SNOW! this week was terrible! The wind was the worst it has been my whole time in Annapolis. It was cold. I like the desert because of the heat mostly, but nature is pretty beautiful out here.
