Ward Rescue

Traditional Burning of the Hump Day shirt
Hey family and friends! I am doing good here even though the weather went back to cold after a week of sunshine. My waterproof jacket and boots have proved to be money well spent. 

We did a ton of work with the ward members this week. The relief society president had an idea to do a 'Ward Rescue' this week. She divided the ward into 4 areas marked out every less active member on the map. Then everyone who wanted to participate was assigned some families to visit. On Saturday, we all left to visit these members. Elder Cobb and I even split up with 2 other members and visited 6 families each in two hours. We found many inactive members whom we had never met. 

Can you find Elder Gygi?
The other day a random man stopped us in the street and told us we needed to come visit him. We didn’t feel very good about it at first so we set a day to come back later. I thought he was going to try and rob us. When we went back we taught him and 2 other friends the Restoration and committed all 3 of them to baptism on the 1st of October. He is very excited for baptism! He even told us to come over to his house Sunday morning at 8:00 to wake him up for church! It was a great miracle. Just shows how some people are prepared to receive our message.

con amor,

Élder Gygí
