Hot Week in NC and first Bday in NC!

Hey guys!! This week was a slow slow week. Our Ward Mission Leader had a meeting with like 6 different Ward Mission Leaders and he came back and told us that my area is the hardest area in the mission. I can testify of that. My companion and I had a lesson with a Methodist named Chad Tuesday and it went pretty well we invited him to read the Book of Mormon and he said.." Ill read the Book of Mormon to prove to you that it is wrong" We meet with him on Tuesday so we will see how that goes! After that lesson there was a CRAZY rainstorm! Like hurricane weather. We had to bike home in lightning and thunder and it was pouring rain! I was trippin! I was soo scared! I have never biked that fast in my entire life.

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday we didn't have any investigators or lessons so we tried going to some of the less actives in the Ward and no one wanted to talk with us. So basically we just knocked on doors and got a lot of doors slammed in our face...

Yesterday was one of the better days out on the field for me. We had Church which was super nice and I felt the spirit during the sacrament song. Then after we had dinner with members and the members down here are super nice but we have nothing in common. They don't know any sports and all they talk about is guns and hunting with my companion. After we got done with our meal we went tracting for 2 hours and the very last door we knocked on this apartment and talked to 3 ladies and got 3 new investigators! I am looking forward to teaching them this week and maybe getting them to commit to baptism!

Also I got to play tennis for an hour this week! It felt so good to be out on the court for an hour! Well we had a very slow week but we got a lot to look forward to this week! The weather here is insane but I am surviving! Miss you guys! and for my bday today we are going to try this ice cream place that everyone says is amazing so I am way excited for that! Hope everyone has a good week:)

Love Elder Andrus
