I am no longer going to be in the Only True Mission (effective July 1st). Before I get into the details of this, let me start at the beginning (or rather, a little closer to the beginning.
Our outgoing mission president has set some mission-wide goals for his last ten weeks. We are on week 4 right now. The goals are as follows:
Week 1: Two new invitations for Baptism including a "Map to Baptism" in each area (180 new Baptism dates in the mission. The record is 300 in a week).
Week 2: Use the "My Family" booklet at least 3 times every day (1,890 uses in the mission this week)
Week 3: One Active Member Lesson/day + 2 referrals/day (630 AML and 1,260 referrals)
Week 4: Three new investigators this week. (270 new investigators. Record: 300)
Week 5: 100% Member Present Lessons + Two new Baptismal Dates (180 dates set)
Week 6: Five OTMs daily. Finding Hour: 4pm-6pm (3150 OTMs for the week)
Week 7: Standard of Excellence in EVERY AREA (20 lessons, with 12 of them member present, 4 RCLAs, 4 Others; 2 baptismal dates; and 2 new investigators)
Week 8: Three Investigators at church (270 new investigators at church....it would break the record.)
Week 9: Two New Baptismal dates for the week.
Week 10: Double the Standard of Excellence in your area.
We are working A LOT to try to prepare for these next 6 weeks. It is intense! It has been very fun, too.Our ward is doing very well.
Our outgoing mission president is going to end his mission very strong, and with enough momentum to help our incoming mission president with the mission. BUT not only that, our outgoing mission president is going to end the OTM mightier than it has ever been, and the Only True Mission is going to begin Almighty's Best Mission with a fantastic start.
I am so glad to be able to end the mission strong, and I am going to begin this new mission even stronger. The Arkansas Bentonville Mission is going to be a new beginning for each of the 200 missionaries here. It is going to be magnificent. I am so excited to be a part of this. So excited.
My companion and I are trying to work together to become more united to end this mission, and it is going to be so cool. I cannot wait for the Arkansas Bentonville Mission to begin. To add to my excitement, I saw my first fireflies in the mission yesterday!!!!! It was so amazing :D.
I am so excited for this whole thing.
