Getting "worked"

Pretty awesome to think that I spent all of 2015 in the service of our Lord. Probably definitely one of the highlights of my life.

Happy Elders getting 'worked'
Elder Qiu and I had a super slow week. We're struggling with finding people to teach. Last night as we were knocking, I taught him some new English. I rang a doorbell, a man walked out, asked what we wanted, I told him we're representatives of Jesus Christ and we'd like to share a message. He said, "thank you" about 50 times with out letting me say anything else, while he slowly shut the door. It actually happens pretty often. I looked at Elder Qiu and said, "He just WORKED me." He looked so confused, "..Whaaat??" Then explained to him how sometimes these people simply take control of the contact and leave us absolutely nothing to work with. They WORK us. So yeah, we're gonna be super bold this week so nobody works us. Elder Qiu and I get some pretty good laughs.

Our Ward moved to 1:30 in the afternoon so know we have studies in the morning. First time that has happened to me on my mission and I'm pumped. Sabbath Day studies. I'm sure there's nothing better.

Brother Lin came to Sacrament yesterday for the first time! We've been working with him for a while. I'm certain the big reason he came to church was because he has an awesome member fellowshipping him. Most converts that stay active, stay active because they have close friends helping them along the way.

Scripture of the week:
Proverbs 13:20
He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

Surround yourself with greatness!

Love you all, and have a blessed week
Elder Chase Matua
