Ava is a place where a lot of amazing people live with some very interesting people thrown in to keep things, well, interesting.
We had someone called us one day saying that they were in danger, they were crying and making it up to be something terrible, well as it turns out they really just needed to find a place to move because they were living with a crazy cousin who was apparently scamming them. Very interesting. She also grew attached to my companion because they both have similar Scottish roots.
At Zone Conference. That is one bright yellow tie!
We went on exchanges with the District Leader and his companion and that was great. I believe 7 Book of Mormons were placed and 3 new investigators were found, which is good compared to the past success of missionaries there. We were pretty happy about that.
Back in our area, we were able to go see a couple that lives in the home of members who moved out a while back. They were very open and receptive, and are investigating now. The husband said he believes all the things we taught so far and he looks forward to hearing what we have to say next time.
Love, Elder Rodgers
