4th of July Activity/Talked to EFY group!

so this week…
Planning for the 4th of July activity is going great. We have been working hard to publicize the activity that were having at the Church. We stopped by and left invitations for most of the less-active church members and well as our potential investigators. Unfortunately for Elder Brinkerhoff, he is going to miss the activity. The Assistants to the President called yesterday and he will be going on an exchange with them and the mission president to show them how to teach missionaries to use family history in finding. Elder Brinkerhoff wants to be a genealogist as a profession after his mission. Because he knows how to do genealogy so well we have been using it a lot in our teaching. This week we had a great lesson with someone about family history. After the lesson my companion helped him get started on the computer. He seemed pretty excited about learning his family history and being able to do temple work for his ancestors. It should help him get back into activity in the church soon.

One cool thing we did this week was we went up to Isla Vista (UCSB) to talk to 500 youth attending a Church camp called EFY. It went really well! We probably will be doing this again next week.

Unfortunately our friend Elvis is moving this week. He has been supplying us with a lot of people to teach and has been really helpful for us. He’ll still be working in our area though so he may still send us referrals.
out of time… 😦
