Don't Be Toxic!!---week 96- 94 weeks in Phoenix Mission- 9 weeks in Buckeye

 Don't Be Toxic!!
 Week 96-  94 weeks in Phoenix Mission-  9 weeks in Buckeye

Dear friends and family,

Today marks a very surreal milestone. I entered the MTC 22 months ago
today. Here's to two more months of sharing the gospel of Jesus
Christ!!! It was a fairly average week, we just taught more than
usual. Nothing spectacular!

So we ended the week with 7 investigator lessons and 4 recent convert
lessons which is super good for this area! I'll highlight our best
Stephanie: She really enjoyed meeting members at church last week, so
we brought the Marrs with us to a lesson. Sister Marr and Stephanie
are just like the same person. I'm so glad the Spirit prompted us to
bring them to a lesson! The Marrs picked her up for church and sat
with her during church and relief society!

New investigators
We picked up two new investigators as well! We were visiting a recent
convert family and they have some friends living with them. They
agreed to have us teach them! They're pretty interested and they said
they'd read and pray!

We spent a lot of time out and about trying to find new people to
teach. We didn't find much immediate success from that, but the Lord
definitely blessed us with a fruitful week! It's a great thing to be
so close to so many members. And I haven't even been here very long!
Hopefully next week we'll have more news about upcoming baptisms!

Zone meeting
We had a great zone meeting which focused on building unity in the
zone. Recently people have been pretty tense and biting toward each
other. I led a discussion on helping increase unity and communication.
I introduced a League of Legends term, "toxic", to the zone. In
League, "toxic" means you're being a bad sport, blaming everyone else,
and just a jerk overall. No one wants to play with toxic players, and
they almost always lose. So we applied that to missionaries. We can't
be toxic!!

That's about all that happened with my week! Sorry if it was kinda
lame! Have a great week everyone! :)

Much love,
