Another week is down. Sometimes it seems the week goes super slow, and other weeks they go even slower, but most weeks they go pretty quick. We did a lot of finding again this week. And some more cancelled lessons. We did have a few lessons this week. Also a Zone Meeting in a neighboring town which took most of one day. This week for p-day President Jordan met us at a member’s home and provided a big bbq complete with American hamburgers from Costco. It was pretty cool!
We usually do lessons in homes or at the church. But this one evening, we decided to do the lesson at a park. We met the investigator there and had a good lesson. While we were teaching him, the sun was setting and geese from everywhere started to come in from all directions to land in the lake for the night. It was a pretty cool thing to witness.
We were able to have another day of service at member’s home also. Loved that! We cut down some more trees, and cleaned up the branches. Nice to just have physical labor. I felt much better after getting a chance to work hard, good stress reliever.
We had planned to go to town centre one evening, but we didn’t even make it there. We almost got to the entrance and my companion stopped a guy. He talked for a long time with him, so I just stopped everyone that was walking out of town centre. It was a good evening.
One appointment cancelled in an area of town that we don’t normally go into. We were walking and three teenagers stopped us. They had seen the documentary about what Mormons believe and had a lot of questions. We visited with them for about 30 minutes about everything from the law of chastity, word of wisdom, the purpose of life, a lot of things. They are pretty interested in learning more- and it all started with a documentary trying to make fun of us.
One of our investigators is trying to live the gospel to the fullest, even wanting to fast with us this week. And saying prayers on a daily basis. It was hard to remember to pray awhile back, but now it’s just automatic, like not even a thought anymore.
Thanks so much for all the support and prayers- it really means a lot!
