This week was busy, but in some aspects a little disappointing. We had to drop one of our investigators. He regressed so far and doesn't want anything to do with us now. One of our investigators is out of town and we couldn't catch him before he left. Finals at Hartnell, the local college, are also happening this week and next, and since we teach so many YSA aged people, that affects our teaching. We are working on finding some new investigators. Between the two baptized last transfer and the ones we've had to drop, investigators are running thin. We have some good refferals though. We have been beefing up our less active teaching pool. One of the less actives we teach taught the gospel principles class yesterday. The rescue test is working here and people really are coming back. It is great to see. I enjoy not tracting.
This week L. Whitney Clayton and some other general authorities will be here to roll out another pilot program. It deals with service. We will probably be doing a lot of finding through service in the coming months. He will be talking about it to all the Zone Leaders, so I get to go up there this saturday.
If I see a decent bike somewhere, I'm going to buy it. There is a good probability that I could be on a bike next transfer since Elder Miller will probably leave, and the ZL status goes with it. The 2 sets of spanish elders that cover salinas share a car and are on bikes. They could make us do that with Salinas 1st (the english ward in south salinas).
