Week 28

Hey y'all! It's been another great week in Texas! (I've gotta figure out something different to say...I think I start my entries like this every week) Anyways, this week was definitely a really good week, better than it has been in a long time.
First off, we met with Lawson a couple times this week and we had some really good lessons with him and he is planning on being baptized on January 30th! We are so excited for him and can't believe he is progressing so quickly either. It has been incredible. He told us that he had been praying to know what to do about religion and the next day we knocked on his door! He was also at church yesterday and really enjoyed it. He's been looking for a family church too and really loved it.
The other exciting news is we were finally able to see Trevor again! He had been out of town for a while but we stopped by after an appointment with Lawson and he was home. He asked somewhere in the first couple of minutes if we would be able to pick him up for church and we were only too happy to help him out and get him there. He had a good time as well and we are planning on seeing him tomorrow. We are hoping he will be able to progress and be baptized as well.
The sad news for this week is that Imeh's uncle doesn't want us meeting with her anymore. He didn't give a particular reason, and we didn't push because we really don't want to leave a bad taste in his mouth. It's really sad but we are going to try to work with a friend to at least get her chapters to read from the Book of Mormon (if that hasn't been taken away from her) because I think (and so does Elder Hardy) that she knows it's true. We will have to see what happens.
This week we also picked up a family!! There's six people: Sergio and Susana (mom and dad), and kids Jose, Daisy, Michelle, and Maria (who usually goes by Susana as well). We are really excited to start teaching them and hope that they will progress and accept the gospel in their lives. They are a fairly young family (Jose is the oldest and he's only 10) and I know that the gospel can help them grow as a family. We're excited for that.
Other than that, not much else has happened this week. Travis and Akshay and Ashutosh had to cancel, but hopefully we will be able to see them this week.
Hope y'all have had a great new year and have a wonderful week!
Elder Grondel
