Hoping for Great Things this Week!

Dear Family,

This week was rough up until Sunday.  We only could get one lesson a day with one investigator, U_________, a 16 year old girl.  She is great. She was a referral from America actually!  Manchir, a Mongolian Elder serving a full-time mission in Arizona sent it over to us and we started to meet with her a few weeks ago. She is doing great and should have a baptism interview this week. She is reading the Book of Mormon great, and has a testimony of it. I think she will make for a great “fit" with our Young Women’s program in Nalaik.  

Sunday we had a talk with Elder UlziiJargal (one of the other elders serving here) asking for help.  We have checked all people in our area books (phone numbers and addresses) and there is just nothing to work with.  So we decided to ask him for a few people to work with from his book, and he helped us out.  Our Branch President is great, but has not been too helpful the past few weeks with giving us names.   But this Sunday he was able to finally give us names and numbers of all our less actives that need to be met with. That was a relief!  The other members in the Branch have been too busy to have us in their homes yet, but this Sunday they were all willing to let us in this week!  Blessing!!  We had also quite a few new investigators come out to church that we met up with, as well as a less active family that came in!  This coming week will be packed if it goes they way we have planned!  Pray for us!

Other than that that, Sister T_______, who was about to get baptized but had a death in the family a week ago and is no where to be found.  We are praying for her, and were able to see her mother this week.  She says she will be back shortly. 

My companion Elder Dulguun is great!  I love him.  I am grateful to have had such great companions.

Gotta go now.  Love you all,

Elder Harris
