This week not a whole lot has happened with our investigators. One, many of them haven't taken time to open up their schedule, and two, some of them haven't been keeping very many commitments lately, and we will need to stop seeing several of them. We will be focusing our finding efforts through the members of the ward as opposed to just our own efforts, which we feel has been the case the last transfer.
This was taken by a man we knocked the door of, and we asked him to take this picture for us. Little did we know that he would bash us hard.
It's funny to see how clueless we are in this picture, of what would come next
Sarah - We stopped in and saw Sarah this week, we asked her how her Book of Mormon reading is going and she read all the way from 1 Nephi 5 to the end of 2 Nephi!
Katie - We followed up on last week's Restoration lesson, and she enjoyed it, is still pondering on it she says, and so we read the Book of Mormon with her. She wasn't yet comfortable with reading it out loud with us, but she said she liked it all. Next step, keep promising and testifying, keep following up, and keep praying that she will have a desire to read and to pray.
Trinity - Her brother wasn't there when we came at first so we mainly talked with her this week, she's been doing her reading and praying, and notices a change within herself. What a blessing.
We had some people who are without a place to stay for the time being, get on their feet a little. Although we can't give them temporal help and especially not money, we have talked with them about going the right direction, and have referred them to our Bishop to see if there was anything in the area they could turn to for stability and work.
I have never seen a ward as supportive as this one, and we work well with them. I can feel their approval and the LORD's approval as we remember the things that he's guided us to do, and as we're united therein.
Other exciting news, it snowed enough to actually be called snow here finally. It's nice to see all that snow outside, it feel so refreshing.
Love from Elder Rodgers
