Another Transfer in the Nati

Hey errybody!

I am staying in Cincinnati another transfer! No surprise there. That usually happens when you are training :)

Mark King is still progressing towards baptism! He is getting baptized August 12th at 7:00. We are going to be teaching the Word of Wisdom this week as well as the Law of Chastity. Going to be an exciting week!

It is so incredibly hot here. We did a lot of yard work this week, and we were sweating buckets! It was kinda gross. But that's missionary work! I haven't been drinking nearly enough water all week, so I'm kinda dumb.

This week was a social media split too. So if we see a bunch of pictures of missionaries, look for me! Social media splits are fun.

10 Months Out!

Hello Everyone!

Greg this passed week dropped us, and won't be getting baptized :( he wasn't willing to live the Word of Wisdom and said he never wanted to be Mormon. He told us he was sorry for "leading us on". It was frustrating, sad, and heartbreaking all at the same time.

BUT! We have another investigator who is on date! His name is Mark King, he is blind! He is so cool. He is an "eternagator"--eternal investigator. He has been investigating since 2008! I seem to have a knack for baptizing eternagators, seeing that my one baptism was one. So I have confidence in this one! ;) He is committed to August 13th. Woohoo!

I love my zone! It's such a fun family. We had Zone meeting on Wednesday, and it was the most fun and spiritual one I have ever had! I'm blessed to be here.

Transfers are next week! I'll find out next week if I'm leaving or staying. I'm hoping I stay, and it's most likely I will stay and finish training Sister Coleman. Doesn't hurt to pray though!

I also hit my 10 month mark this week! In celebration, we went to Skyline, a Cincinnati classic.

Love ya'll!

It's raining miracles

To start off, we got a new investigator on Friday night when I got back from picking up Sister Iketau for exchanges. We got to our apartment and there were some people outside. We talked to them and got Marty as a new investigator. We went back the next day and he wasn't there. So we knocked on all his neighbor's doors to find our purpose! We met this boy named Camron and his mom Andrea. She wasn't interested so we just left them with a card that had a phone number on it. Later while we were eating lunch, we got this text: "Hello, this is Camron from the 8294 building. The one right above Marty's you came about 20-30 minutes ago woth a message, and I want you to know that I do believe in the Book of Mormon, Bible, D&C, and the Pearl of Great Price, and have been reading them for approximately 2 years. I plan to be a member within the coming year." WHAT. WHAT. WHAT JUST HAPPENED. It was so crazy to see that!! We went and saw him this morning, and he is reading stuff from Bruce R. McConkie! For real? He already knows deep stuff like Kolob! The sad part is that his mom isn't in agreement, and she has to be for him to be baptized since he is 17. We are actually kind of meeting with him behind his moms back... still deciding how I feel about that! But he is so amazing and golden! We just need to help him get baptized.

Greg is still preparing to be baptized! He committed to living the Word of Wisdom :) He stayed for all 3 hours on Sunday, somewhat against his will. Haha. After church he had dinner with us at the Taylor's house. He talked with his mouth full a lot... and so it was kind of funny and gross all at the same time.

That's all for now folks. Love ya!

Sister Fultz!

Happy Independence Day from the OCM

Hope you all had a fun and safe weekend. It rained here in Ohio, all day, and no one was outside. Made personal contacting somewhat hard as you can imagine. We were able to get a new investigator by knocking on some doors by a member (we don't tract, we knock on doors by members, haha). His name is Rodney and his wife is Raven. They have 3 kids, 2 of which have autism! You can imagine that we had lots to talk about. I testified to them about how families can be together forever, they liked that idea of that ;) We are seeing them Saturday! Because of the Holiday we had to be in by 6 pm for safety. We didn't have anything specific we needed to do, so we cleaned, watched Jesus movies and colored :)

Greg Pullem is still preparing to be baptized on the 23rd. He gave us a bit of a scare the other day... he wanted to postpone it. But after talking he decided there was plenty of time between now and then to prepare for it ;) Hallelujah. He is so awesome. We just need to get him to read the Book of Mormon every day.

Funny story of the week... we had to go to Hebron, Kentucky for interviews with President and Sister Welch. Well, we were driving along we were about ten minutes away. We went down this road, and it led to the river...and we  had to take a ferry to get across the river! It was so unexpected. Sadly, we did not have cash to pay for the ferry, so we had to backtrack... 30 minutes! It was the worst. Needless to say we were late to our interviews. Everyone made fun of us when we got there. I now know to put ferries as something to avoid on my GPS! It was really funny. Sister Coleman get scared easily when it comes to driving in a car, so her heart rate was through the roof!

Love you all! Talk to you again in a few days :)
