Fulton and Turtles?

We Found a Turtle!

Hey everyone! So this week was good. It was great to talk to you all. And mom if you see that guy again that says he might be able to hook me up with a job at USU, tell him I'm definitely interested!! Anyways Fulton is quite the place. The members here are...different from other areas. Sunday one of them spoke a lot about how much God's love is because he found a sparrow on the sidewalk take it's last breath and got all emotional about it. It was pretty entertaining. The work here hasn't been the greatest recently, but that's going to change real soon! This week Elder Ward and I saw quite a lot of success! We got two new investigators and set them both with baptismal dates! One is named Devin. We knocked on her door after we tried a less-active who wasn't home, and we just knocked on the upstairs door and she let us right in! We taught her the restoration real quick and it went well. She wasn't comfortable praying at the end, so we committed her to pray on her own and set her with a baptismal date as well. Unfortunately, she seems like she might have just been nice to us or heard us out, because she cancelled our return appointment and when we called her and said "it's the elders" she hung up! But if that's the case, we still were able to plant that seed! We also met L, Sister W's friend. She is so sweet. She's been through a lot, but she knows the church is true and she agreed to baptism as well. Unfortunately, she didn't come to her return appointment and Elder Wilcox who is the district leader (he's in Pulaski) who served here over a year ago said she can be flakey. I hope that's not the case though. Josh is still really sweet. He's awesome and still doing everything right basically to prepare for baptism. We also met with a sweet less-active brother fuller. He has lost all of his faith and knowledge, but he wants to get it back and he has a desire to do what is right, which is all you need. We also had Sister Murrell at church yesterday. She's a less-active who shouldn't be less-active but is because of transportation. All we need to do there is get her rides and she will be activated. Also got to meet with Marty! He's sweet. He's the one who's brother played briefly in the NHL. He's met Kane, Ovechkin, Malkin, St. Louis, Montayo, Gretzky, and more! He's so cool. He always argues with eve about their son. He wants him to be a hockey player, but she wants him to be a ufc fighter. I always side with Marty. Haha. We also had a nerf gun war for our district activity last night, which was really fun! Sorry this letter is so short, but that's all I have for this week. Love you all and have a great week.
