Boy has this week blown by! Actually, come to think of it, this transfer has blown by. It's unbelievable to me that I've already been in Amherst for s-i-x weeks! I just learned that Elder Woodbury and I will remain here in Amherst for another transfer. This is great news! We have been having tons of fun and doing a lot of work.
This area has a small branch, so we get to help keep things organized and take care of the members. I have to give my cousin Elder Spencer Wilkins (serving in the Birmingham, Alabama Mission) a SHOUT OUT!!! My companion and I, as well as the sister missionaries here did the "Hour of Power". Here is part of my cousins weekly update from last week:
"This week we headed off what we call the "hour of power". Basically its an hour where the entire mission is finding and being bold. We chose the hours of 5-6pm and during the hour of power this week over 1500 baptismal invites were extended. It was powerful to be a part of this because its something we were doing as a mission."
As we have implemented this, we've seen great success and have found some great people to teach. It's A-W-E-S-O-M-E! Thanks again SPENCER! I can't believe your mission is almost complete and you are heading home next month! Time flies out here!!!
I am grateful for all that you guys do! A handful of you out there must be praying on our behalf; I can feel it! I appreciate this as it truly makes a difference!
