Elder Olson is amazing. I'm so grateful to be his companion.
This week has been a crazy one. As a zone leader it’s always crazy. I love working with these missionaries and they are the best! We have an amazing zone and I’m honored to be thier zone leader to uplift and help in any way I can!! We as a zone decided to achieve the standard of excellence in the month of June. The Standard is that every companionship baptizes every month. We have the goal of doing so in the month of June. This zone needs your prayers. We need to build the faith to invite people to come unto Christ and be baptized. We need to build our faith that God will send those who are ready and we will be lead to those that are prepared. I’m excited, and nervous, about this challenge but I know we will all grow from this.
We got a new investigator!!! His name is Papis Fatti. He is from Ghana,Africa. He is SSSOOOO CCCOOOLLLL!!! I love Africa and this guy is amazing!!! He is so willing and ready to learn. We got a referral from the mission office saying to contact a Brother Anderson about his friend. He gave us Papis' number and address then we asked him if he could set up an appointment for us to meet him. We were at his house last Friday and had an amazing lesson. He has been in the states for a year and a half and loves being in Idaho. He has a son still in Ghana that he is trying to get here. Ghana is a Muslim country and the risk is that if they find out Papis is Christian that can put his son in danger. But he believes that as he exercises faith, God will provide. How amazing is that!!!! We invited him to pray and ask if the Book of Mormon is true and we have a lesson lined up for this Wednesday. I can’t wait! Please pray for him and his family.
Happy Birthday Madeline Rose. I miss you.
