November 18, 2013 ~ Week 17

Hey Everyone,
I'm almost out of time so this will have to be quick...

So this week has been pretty great. We started the week off and we had 9 member presents planned. I was super excited, but then a bunch fell through and we only had 5. Sometimes It feels like when we put the most work into it we get the least results, but 5 is still great! I think it's the standard of excellence so that's good. This week we did have a referral we got from Elder Bufford. The guy was in a shelter, but we managed to find him. We talked to the people there and they let us have a room to talk to him in. He went around and gathered a bunch of other people living in the shelter to come listen, and because of that we now have 4 people that want to be baptized. That was a super humbling experience. I loved it.   Cynthia didn't get baptized this week. She really wants to be baptized, she just isn't ready yet. So we will see how she does!

One other experience we had this last week was with Bobsie. She is an older lady that the Holloways found. They came teaching with us and it was hard because she would always interrupt, not because she was being rude but just because she wanted to talk. She was open to us teaching her, but it was hard.  We are seeing her again and we will be better though! So that's this week!

 All is well in Zion! I'm doing super great, and got to run! Love you all!

{Note from mom....I received an email from the mission home requesting that all CHRISTMAS PACKAGES being sent to Elder Jorgensen, go through the Mission Home.  They also would also like them there by December 6th so that they can be sure everything is delivered.  Transfers are on December 10th.  Meeting that deadline will assure that  Elder Jorgensen receives your package at the time his zone's packages are delivered.  So...if you are planning on sending Elder Jorgensen something for Christmas, send it to the following address.  Thanks!}

Be sure to write:  MERRY CHRISTMAS on the outside so they know it's for Christmas.  ;)

ALSO...FYI....Elder Jorgensen's birthday is December 9th.  I am sure he would LOVE a "Happy Birthday" email/message from YOU.  ;)
