July 9, 2013

Hi everyone! 

This week had had lots of crazy things happen! My P-day got moved to Tuesday this week and we found out on Thursday, so I didn't get the chance to tell anyone! Sorry! But hey, life goes on :)  (Mom won't talk about her panicking when Monday came and went and no word from Jordan).
So, before I forget, me and Sis. Johnson MOVED again.  The member we were living with had a family emergency and needed the bedroom we were sleeping in. So, we just moved our stuff back into the apartment. We're living there with the two other sisters! Its going to be a party! We are so excited to be living with the other sisters. :)
Me and Sis. Johnson have spent the majority of the week cleaning out our area book. Its been quite a process. We have papers in there from 2007 when elders were in the area. Let me tell you, they are TERRIBLE at taking notes and writing addresses down. Its been frustrating. But its okay... We forgive them!  We needed to clean out the area book so we could find old potentials and formers (former investigators and members). We want to find lots of investigators so we can convert Post Falls! So that took a couple of days. We had our regular appointments here and there, but for the majority of the week we've been doing paperwork stuff since we're in a "new" area.
Proselyting on the 4th of July was quite an adventure. NOBODY was happy to see us on their doorstep and nothing we were doing that day was effective. So, we decided to go to the church and call members we don't know to set up appointments to meet them next week. It worked so well! We actually got a few potentials out of our phone calls! :) Thursday is typically weekly planning, where we sit down and plan the next week and a half. We plan lessons and talk about things that would be most effective to help the area grow. We decided to do that during the evening when everyone is eating and watching fireworks. Problem Solved :)
We have a potential named Mongomery that we've been trying to get a hold of for the past 2 weeks. We've been playing this fun game of phone tag that isn't super fun :) But we called him Sunday night around 10 and he answered! We set up an appointment for Friday and we're planning on inviting him to be baptized! And he's coming to church with us on Sunday! We love him lots :)
Yesterday we had interviews with Pres. and Sis. Mullen so that's why my Pday got moved. Our whole zone was there so we all get to hang out today! :) Then we taught Debra and Terry that night. We let the other sisters have the car Sunday and Monday so we've been doing a lot of walking, but I haven't been getting any blisters! :)
I love and miss you all so much. Have a fun summer in the heat! I'll be spreading the gospel in the cool temperatures of 70's and 80's. :)
All my love,
Sis. Gardanier
