More Exchanges This Week

Mission Leadership Training

August 30, 2016

Dear Family & Friends,

More exchanges this week. I stayed in the area both times and got to have Elder Pennington and Elder Spencer up here with me. We had some sweet experiences in both of the exchanges. It's always cool to get to be companions with someone else just for a day and to learn from one another. I also got to go on a little team up with one of the new Spanish missionaries named Elder Yorgasen. We had a good time working together. We went and tried to make contact with a few potentials but just ended up talking to people on the street for two hours haha. We were in the middle of Oak Park so there were quite a few "crazies" walking around. It's a pretty run down part of downtown and has a lot of drug/gang stuff going on. We actually ended up talking to a couple of really cool people and set some return appointments for them. Didn't get to use my Spanish as much as I would've liked but it's all good.
Katherine brought her brother to church this past Sunday! He seemed like he really liked it so we are pumped to see where it goes from here. Katherine is also inviting others to come so she is already becoming a missionary! It's probably a result of her  reading out of Preach My Gospel this past week haha. Her family is going through alot right now though so if you could keep her in your prayers that'd be sweet.

We got to teach Amy this past week while I was on exchanges. She is still working towards her baptismal date for September 10th. We haven't been able to meet as much as we would like to with her so we are hoping that picks up this next week. Sydney is in about the same boat as well.
We have a couple of new potentials and leads so I'll keep you posted on what happens with them in the coming weeks. We have quite a few meetings with MLC this week and Zone Conference next week. It's going to super busy so time I guess time will just have to keep flying by as usual.

Hope that everyone has a great week! Love you all!

Elder Gammell
