Elder Garlick

Ups and Downs

Man so there were a couple of ups and downs to this week, it was really weird. First off, I'm not getting transferred!! Elder Garlick and I are actually still companions! We did NOT think that we were going to be staying together so that was a huge shock to us when we were told that we were going to be staying together! But we get another 6 weeks together and we're going to kill it while we're here!

So our investigator Aric had his baptismal interview on Sunday and he passed with flying colors! He was stoked cause he was pretty nervous for it. He came to church, everyone fellow shipped him, he had a blast in the youth classes, then we got a text from his parents that they don't want us meeting with him, seeing him, or teaching him anymore... And so that came from out of nowhere. And since he's a minor we have to listen to the parents. We're going to go by and talk with then and ask why we can't visit with them. So pray that we'll be able to know what to do!

But on the other hand, we were able to pick up a few new investigators this week and it was awesome! They are reading and keeping commitments, so there isn't a lot of room to complain! We've met a few new less active families and we're also working with them!

We also got to go to the temple this week so that was awesome!

There isn't too much more to report on! Please pray for Aric and his parents that we'll be able to continue to teach him and baptize him! Here are some pics of the week as well! Love you all and hope y'all have a great week!
