We were able to tract this week. We tracted for 5 hours and no one would listen. We talked to people on the street for 7 hours and no one would listen. I called everyone I had a phone number to and only got 3 potential appointments. Our investigators are dwindling. We have one potential that says he has stopped drinking and is being baptized on Sunday. Other than that we have another guy and we meet with him once a week. Another one did show up to church yesterday with his twin boys. They are true twins. Matching little black boys with matching clothing and matching Mohawks. Wow! He says they are a handful. He is the driving instructor and we are planning to meet with him on Thursday. If I am here another transfer, I am doing my driving through him, so I can drive. A member did bring a friend to church with him. He is cool, 24, and way smart. To teach him, I had to do a lot of analogies between a teacher and learning and Heavenly Father and our purpose here on earth. He has two sisters that he has no idea where they are. I shared about the Plan of Salvation and he really liked it.
The allerga is helping with the allergies, but I still really tired. I sleep from 10:30 to 6:30 every day but wake up and felt like that I didn’t sleep at all.
There was a new missionary meeting with the President in London this week. We all got a chance to talk with him. President and an AP were talking to me and said they really liked my work ethic and how hard I work. But they said as long as I stay obedient and work hard, I have great potential. I don’t know where they are seeing this potential coming from, but I guess only time will tell.
Some good talks I have read:
“Candle of the Lord” by Boyd K Packet from June 25, 1982. It’s a good talk that was given to new Mission Presidents. Link: http://www.lds.org/ensign/1983/01/the-candle-of-the-lord?lang=eng
“Rise to your Call” by President Henry B Erving. I think everybody needs to read that before they go on a mission. November 2002 Ensign. Link: http://www.lds.org/general-conference/2002/10/rise-to-your-call?lang=eng
We are going to central London today for P-day.
Nothing too new, other than I’m pretty sure I am transferring out of here next transfer so my companion can train again. One other thing, there is another Elder Stevenson coming in with the next group- so I will not be the only Elder Stevenson anymore in the mission.
Trying to push forward,
Love Elder Stevenson
