Hello everyone!!!   so for this week, let's see what to update you all on? ...
Saturday I had an interview with President Orgill, it went really well, love talking to him and getting advice and counsel. He told me that we could start working with members in the ward on facebook, so I was like sweet! and later that day went and added 10 members as friends, and then Sunday morning he texted and said "actually though in pondering and prayer keep doing facebook without the members as 'facebook friend'". hahaha!!! I replied awkwardly; "we are already friends with some and have mentioned it to others"  President was like "okay, I guess it is okay with the people you have already mentioned it to". So that was fun!  Social Media contact program is going well. You just never know how or when that connection will be made!  In other news...We got dropped by both of our investigators this week. One of them said they would "call us" when they wanted to talk to us and to not stop by anymore or have communication with them.
 So that is sad, it is a lot different when someone tells you they are done instead of you praying and fasting about if you should drop them and then drop them. It is a lot like dating I guess!!!  easier to get over if you are the one that ended it. So we are back to square one.
Anyways, I love it here in the ward still. We have a volleyball tournament today for the whole mission so I will have pictures for that later in the week. 

I love you all so much and thank you for the prayers and love and the sacrifice being made for me being out here, it is much appreciated. Keep up the good work and keep doing all you do. Love you so much, sorry the letter is short, I never know what to say but if we were in person i would tell lots more stories.

 Love you :)

Reunions, Concerts, Service and Proselyting - the Life of a Missionary


Well this week has for sure been a good one. 
It started out on Wednesday when we went over to Tiffany's house for a lesson, it was a really good time and we had the opportunity to share a message with her about how to gain answers to prayers and what we need to do when we get the answers. She liked it and informed us that she is still reading from the Book of Mormon, in the beginning stages of Alma and taking notes as she read, so that is awesome to see that she is still doing that. We are planning on meeting with her this wednesday and hoping to get her more open minded towards baptism and coming to church. She really likes the whole "Easy Religion" of Mariners (Born-Again) and so it is a tough battle to fight but in the end, the truthfulness of the gospel should win out. 

Elder Sobczak carries Cholula Sauce in his backpack, and used the last few drops at dinner and so we replaced it today at church

The concert thing that we had this last thursday and friday were awesome. Had so much fun, the fun was mainly from getting to help set up all the light and sound stuff for the show, the show was fun but all the other stuff was way more fun. I had fun doing it and all but I realized that if i was to do that as  a career I would always be on the road and never at home, which would make it hard to have a family. And so it just kind of solidified the fact I would love to do something like that but I want to be stationed somewhere, not moving all over the place and so a full on career in theatre would not be my cup of tea. But we had a fun time and the concert.
Proselyting has been going really well. People are asking questions, taking notice and seeing the stuff my comp and I put up so it is interesting to see who does what and who actually pays attention. We shall see what happens these next few weeks as we close up the transfer and head into August. 
Yesterday something cool happened were a guy named Steve, randomly walked into church and then stayed for all three hours. We taught him a lesson about the Book of Mormon and set up a lesson with him for tonight at 8:00 so we shall see if that actually happens. Really cool guy and it was just really cool to see that miracle happen.
Well I hope all is going well and that miracles are happening in your life. Glad to hear settling into the new house is going well and hope all of your travels are done in safety. Thank you for all you do, I got the package of yarn and knitting loom and the needle threaders, I appreciate that and have been using them in my free time.
I love you all so much, Ayris by the way those chocolate cookie/brownie things you sent  a few weeks ago were amazing, never told you that so i thought i would mention it. 

Love you all and thank you for everything you do. Have a blessed week and may God be with you and Bless you always!
Love Amric Sobczak

I Was Born - Nashville Tribute Band July 10

He is Always There...

So this week was for sure a fun one!
We had our mission conference on Friday and oh man it was insane. I felt like I was a Young Single Adult (YSA) Party the whole night! But you know we had lots of fun and were out of the world for the Fourth of July and so that was nice. We played like "Minute to win it" games, and president gave us permission to watch the movie Son of God. So good.
So it was a nice break from the norm, but I for sure realized how much time I wasted before my mission, just sitting and watching movies/television, something I want to somewhat change when I go home. 

We are going to start working with Tiffany and Sydney again. The people I found a few months ago and had to pass off.   Well I just took them back because the other elders hadn't met with them so we stopped by and she asked when i was going to come back and meet with them, so we set up a lesson for wednesday and are hoping to start teaching the both of them again. So that should be fun and exciting. 

Uhm...what else...
Oh we as a mission are hosting a concert this thursday and friday with the mormon group Nashville Tribute Band so that should be fun. President Lutz is having me run lights and manage the set building/ tech aspects on the two days and run lights for the show so that is going to be so much fun, so excited for doing that. Every time I think I am done with theatre stuff it always comes back around...  and I'm glad it does it's going to be fun!


Uhm,   not to much else to report on from the week. I was reading in the Book of Mormon in Alma 29 verses 9 and 10, (it is on my facebook page) about Christ reaching His hand towards us always. And it hit me that it is so true. He is always there, it is just a matter of are we reaching for him or are we struggling to fix our problems ourselves. 

That is all for me this week. Thank you for all you do and hope this week goes great.
Here is a picture from the party on friday
 Yes most are with sisters - haha! dont judge me!
