We had another very interesting week last week. We had to drop like 4 of our investigators, but hey, things are still going well.
We finally had a breakthrough with a lady named Luchiana. She is from Brazil and her husband is a member. She really liked the church in Brazil and was probably going to get baptized, but then she met her husband (who is English) and they moved over here. We got her to come to church yesterday and we are giving her some of the lessons. She is a super cool lady and I really hope things work out.
|Christian: "Spending hours on High Street|
every week was getting obnoxious."
President Jordan: "So what? The devil can
quote scripture too."
Zone conference went really well last week. President Jordan is the man. I was talking to him about all the anti-Mormon stuff and how all these people were quoting scripture at me, and all he said was "So what? The devil can quote scripture too." I thought that was pretty funny, but all he said to do was to ignore all of that stuff.
What the mission is really pushing for now is working with members to get referrals and also help them teach their friends about the church. I think it’s great that we are starting to do this, because spending hours on High Street [every]week was getting obnoxious. However most the members here are kinda shy to talk about the gospel. I can’t say that I blame them. They get a lot of crap for being Mormons. But most of them have been pretty open with us thus far.
This Saturday we played some football (soccer) with some of the members here. We got absolutely destroyed. We looked like fools, but it was still really fun, and we got a referral out of it as well. I am so out of shape. It’s terrible.
We got fed really well last week. I had shepherd’s pie 4 times last week!!!! at 4 different houses!! It was very nice of people to feed us, cause we kind of ran out of money --haha.
