Me, Sister Fredrickson, and Sister GroesbeckDear family and friends,
This week has been another good week. We have been trying our hearts out to find more investigators, but it sure is slim pickings. We sure do love all the people here. In some neighborhoods, lots of people just chill outside and so we offer to walk up to them and pray with them and teach them. Due to that, we have a lot of return appointments sooo maybe we will have some awesome success? We went back to one home where we found an exed member and his nonmember family and it was his birthday and his whole family was there and they all wanna be taught and had awesome questions!
Another thing, we have our black minister investigator and he is the one that taught us how to contact among his people. He lives a good clean life now and wants us to help him help other people, especially the youth, so we met all these young men and got tight with them, we are homies for life now, I bet. We had a huge turnout for church, mostly less active members we have been working with, but not only that, but we had a large group of the Duncan family show up. The Duncan's are the best members that could have happened for this little branch and they take such good care of us. We even had a crawfish crab boil birthday party for their oldest kid, who turned 11.
It's been a blast and I will be sad this next transfer because Sister Fredrickson or Sister Groesbeck might get transferred and things are great in our district/area. We all work hard and love one another and it shows in the miracles.
God gave us friendships so that we may better fulfill the greatest commandment to love our brothers and sisters. Another plus of the mission is the sweet friendships that happen so often.
Take care of each other,
Love Elder Joshua Dean Rush
