My new years eve was way lame. We cleaned our apartment. You’d be impressed. It only took about 45 minutes. We tried to go tracking in the southernmost part of our area because our Ward Mission Leader told us that a former missionary had a new investigator every time he went down there. We went on an adventure and it turns out that there is nowhere for anyone to live down there. Either we were in the wrong place or that missionary was full of crap. We went tracking somewhere else to try to find some people and we found a few hung-over/drunk people. After about 15 minutes we realized that we weren’t supposed to track at all on new years day.
We found a former investigator yesterday. His name is Robert. He is homeless. He moved up here from California to find a job and hasn’t since he’s been here. He was hanging around another investigator in the same situation but after the other guy moved for a job we lost contact with him. We’ve spent a lot of time this transfer trying to find him.
There is also a recent convert who I should tell you about. His name is John. He lives on an old minesweeper ship. The boat used to be a crack boat so he got it for 5 grand. He spent pretty much the rest of the money he saved fixing it up and getting rid of the hypodermic needles. Anyways what he does is take homeless people in and helps them get back on their feet. Were trying to set something up with Robert and John so we can teach Robert easier. They’d get along great.
