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
