Mombassa and Careful Listening

Week Six of Transfer

Written February 29, 2016

 

Hey all!

I just found out last week that I will be leaving Greenwood to go to a new area, no idea where yet. That will be happening next Tuesday, crazy stuff!
We had a really good week, we taught David again this week and he is ready for baptism but there are some scheduling conflicts so it won’t be for at least another week that he’s baptized.
We had Zone conference this week and learned about really listening and caring about those we teach. I’ve noticed that the more I listen to them and show them that we are there for them, not just to put another number on the board, that they really pay attention to what we say and can feel that converting power of the spirit.
I got a straw hat last week! Its name is Mombassa, no idea why. haha
I hope you are all having a great week!
My theme for this week has been Joshua 1:9 look it up and share it with your families!!
Love,
Elder Ballif
Mom’s Note:
“Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee withersoever thou goest.”
