In other news, the teaching has been going well. Our investigator J almost stopped meeting with us, but now he is way stoked on the gospel and really wants to get baptized. So I am really excited about him, he is a really good guy. He just struggles with smoking cigarettes, but we are working on it. He loves the Book of Mormon too, which is way cool.
We got 3 referrals this week!!!!! That’s really good for this mission -- that is almost unheard of. One of them is from a really old lady in our ward. She asked us to come teach her ladies club in the coming weeks, hahaha. So I am really excited to go in front of all these old English ladies and talk about the restoration. In the back of my mind I think they will be a tough audience. But hey you never know. The other two are just friends from members that they will invite over so we can teach them. I am really excited about them though. I am glad the members here like us enough to let us teach their friends.
It was Stake Conference this week. That was fun. My mission president came and spoke. He talked about the Book of Mormon. He said something similar to Elder Holland in General Conference. He said, "Hyrum and Joseph would not have been reading from the Book of Mormon on the day they were going to die, if they did not believe with all their hearts that it was not true." I thought that was really cool, and quite true. If Joseph really had just made it up, he would not have been seeking for comfort and peace in it when he knew he was going to die later that day.
Well that’s all I have for today.
Love you all.
