well to start off here in Gaylord last week. start on Tuesday like normal we was in boyne city and east Jordon with the tischlers. it was just a crazy day while we was in boyne city cause while we was their we had lunch with the belfords and that was fine as normal but after words we got dropped at an less actives place and we had are bikes with us. well no one was home their so we rode are bikes to go and stop in on an investigator and he wasn't home ether so we called him to see if he was in town at all but he didn't answer so what we did. we rode a little bit to go and do some door knocking before we had to leave to go to east Jordon with the tischlers. but as we was riding he called us back and told us that he moved but it was only around the corner that he moved to. so we went and met up with him but while we was walking over to his place a salesman came up to us and him and are investigator started to do a drug deal so we left and when we left to go and do some knocking we was about to lock up are bikes on an stop sign but when we did that about 7 or 8 bees came out and one of them stung elder Larsen and not me so i got lucky lol. and while we was door knocking no one was home ether so you can tell it was just started out not so good. but then we went over to east Jordon and while we was their we had a great lesson with 2 investigators and hopefully if they came to church they will be get baptized soon. and then after that we went and did some service for a PM family and then we went over to another family in the branch cause the husband came with us to the appointment that we had with the investigators their in east Jordon and we shared a message with them and we got a referral from them as well. and guess what he came to church as well yesterday. he is an boyfriend of one of the daughters and she has been telling him a little about the church and he has came to church a few times as well. on Wednesday and Friday we was down in grayling all day and when we are down their we have been doing a lot of door knocking cause we only have 2 investigators their now so not much work going on down their but we are hoping for some here soon. well on Thursday we had 6 lessons planned but only 1 that was planned happened and we picked up another lesson on the door step and picked up a new investigator. and all week we have been going over to Nancy and Laura's to make sure they are still on the path for baptism and they are doing good. they had their baptismal interview last Saturday after zone conference. but on Saturday during zone conference we learned a whole bunch of new stuff for how to teach people. we learned how to asked the "why" questions to people. like "why do you thick it is important to get baptized" and the "how" questions as well. and then yesterday Nancy and Laura came to church again and they enjoyed it. Nancy has been telling everyone about her baptism on Saturday and it is at 7pm are time(so 5pm Idaho time). and done worry i well get pics. and elder Larsen had to give an talk in sacrament meeting yesterday and it was really good and also President Belford did as well. he said if he asked people to give talks he has to give an talk as well. so he thought it was his turn to give an talk. and we also told nancy and Laura last night when we went over their that if they smoke at all or drink coffee, tie or anything bad that the baptism is not on that we will have to move it back tell they are clean and have not smoked for over a week.
well their you go hope all is well family. the other pic is a rock and it is made into the state of Michigan. i saw that while we was door knocking and so i had to take an picture of it and send it was well. but their you go hope all is well back in Idaho love y'all.
love elder Webster
