Moscow Life October 19, 2015

Dear Family and Friends!

So this week was awesome! It started out with the funniest and greatest street contact rejections ever! We seriously went through like 15 people right in a row that wouldn't even say hi. Sister Bryson and I called that part of campus Engineering Death Valley because thats where all the engineering classes are! Those kind of things just make me laugh. But sometimes it can be a little rough! But tis a life of a missionary! 

We got some referrals from our bishop this week! Six out of the seven said NO no! But the last one we tried let us right it! And guess what?? They are married students! They actually fit the criteria of our ward! Its a miracle! So his name is Shadrack and her's is Danny. Isn't that an awesome name?? But they are super Christian and have TONS of questions! We taught them the restoration right there! They are by no means golden, but its going to be fun working with them! They have lots of potential! So we will see how it goes with them this week!! 

Finn and Daya are doing well! They are still moving in about two weeks :( But we have really built a bond with them and their little boy Sam. I'm going to miss them. The spirit that we feel when we go teach them and their comments during lessons really have helped me build so much love for them! I know they will be baptized. Just a matter of Finn committing to it. But I'm looking forward to keeping in contact with them when I get home! I just love them!!! Daya also teaches us yoga on Mondays :) so its fun!!

Also we had a really great lesson about the restoration with a guy named Zechariah! He's "atheist" but mostly because he is too lazy and defiant to believe in God. We find that a lot on campus. Most people grew up Christian, but don't even believe in God anymore! Thats why it's so important to teach the gospel in your home and live it each day!! This world is nuts. But we will see if Zechariah progresses. He's missing a lot of desire right now!

So we did something that Sister Adamson just loves this week.. Biking in skirts.. We were going every where in Moscow! It was fun! Sister Bryson didn't like it.. Because she's not the most athletic. We are working on her touching her toes. So if any progress is made I'll be sure to inform you!!

So another awesome thing happened! There is this guy named Greg. He's probably in his early 40s and works as a sports psychologist on campus. I met him my first few weeks here in Moscow and we talked to him for about 15-20 minutes. He wasn't super interested, but he has some Mormon friends in southern Idaho. We got along really well because of my sports background. We saw him again a few weeks ago and just said hi and he met Sister Bryson. We saw him again this week and he was chatting our ears off for about 45 minutes on campus. We were laughing and he said how he always sees missionaries and NEVER will speak to them, but he speaks to us! Him and I get along super well. I love finding people that I can make good connections with! He is one of them! He was talking with us about how we could get a better reputation on campus. He had this idea that the should tour us through the Kibbie Dome (which in just the athletic center). So we walked us through there, we met the volleyball team, the football team. Sister Adamson was in heaven!! Seeing all the athletic stuff again really made me miss soccer.. but it was super cool and we were able to met a lot of people on campus and start planting more seeds! It was awesome!! So we were very blessed this week! The work here is Moscow is picking up! :) Its fun to see how hard work really starts making a difference! I love you all!! have a great week :)
