Week 99

This week was a little rough. We weren’t able to go inside and meet with this less active that we were trying to work with. But he did promise us that he would have someone for us to teach next time we came, so that was a good thing that happened.

Well this week I guess was pretty good. We did get back in contact with an old investigator, and we are meeting with her this Thursday night.

We also had a great lesson last night with our other investigator. I think that she is starting to understand. She still won’t accept a baptismal date, but she said yes to baptism so that is great. She had an experience with prayer that really helped her in her progression. Things are looking up!

That was our week, talk to you next time.

Love you all!

Week 98

Not really a whole lot to report on this week. We weren’t able to meet up with our investigator this week, but we did pick up a new less-active that we can work with.

The work is going slow here, but the YSA are great at wanting to come out and work with us. It’s good knowing that if you call them, they will drop what they are doing to help the missionary work progress. It really lifts the load, even if it’s just for an hour.

Most of the week we were GQ'ing [general questioning] around the Station, and we realized that we need to find a new spot to find people because everyone there had talked to missionaries before and weren’t interested. So we might try next to the river in the park this week.

But that’s all from this side. I love you all. Have a great week!
