February 22, 2016: Progresstigators

We just had a ton of people come to church! A whole family we're teaching, and N., and a bunch of super-less-active people! Not only that, but a bunch of former investigators we thought would never come around are saying they want to give it another go! I'm a little nervous, though. I've been in Shawnee a long time and I'm probably not going to get to see the end result of all of this.

L. and his family said they liked the church service and their kids where pretty attentive the whole time. They've only been to the Catholic church before. The talks given where straight out of Preach My Gospel as well, so that was awesome.

It was kind of funny how we convinced them to come out. We bribed the kids with treats if they prayed and they agreed. We said we'd bring the treats for the next time we visited. They had already sort of agreed to come to church, so Jon sealed the deal when he said, "Can get those tomorrow at church?"

It sounds like Arizona was a blast! The weather there seems pretty similar to here—80s most days this week and super humid. This summer is going to be so happy ...

Well, I guess there's a lot of Shumways I'm going to have to get to know some time. Crazy Mormon families and their “multiplying and replenishing.”

Thanks again for the package!
