We went to a place where they play christian music live and then have a bible discussion. We have an investigator who is one of the leaders there. Him and his wife met with us this week and they have been reading several chapters a week, and want to know if the Book of Mormon is true. They said if they weren't teaching basically primary and Sunday School at their church they would come to ours. They will be making it to our activities though.
Tuesday we went on exchanges with the assistants, and three of the four missionaries of that exchange (all except Elder McClellan) have served in Fayetteville 2nd. I loved it because we had a lot to talk about. He told me about one of the people baptized there who I taught that is getting back active and hasn't smoked for a while (This was one of her concerns) so I was pretty excited to hear it. You worry about the converts you helped towards baptism.
We made some cool contacts, one was a very open 18 year old who doesn't know if he believes in God but wants to. We also got into an argument about Joseph Smith with a lady. We didn't argue. We testified and she argued.
We then went on an exchange in Fort Scott, not sure if it's a city or a town. It was pretty hick still. Had a good time.
Hi, Family and Friends!
Friday we had Elders from the Webb City ward come to our area. It was a great exchange, I went with Elder Morris and we made the focus of the exchange talking to everyone. One of the people we talked to wanted us to come back, but aside from her, we made three other contacts that wanted us to come back. One story was particularly cool:
We were walking and a guy comes out of his car (I thought he was going to bash us) and said, what are you guys doing? You're dressed pretty nice. We told him about what we're doing and our message, but he told us he isn't interested. We asked him who would be interested in or who would benefit from our message. He directed us to a building in his complex with lots of young people, or so he said. We went there and at the first door we knocked on, a lady barely opened her door and said she isn't interested. We asked her as well, "who do you know that would be interested in or benefit from our message. " She told us to go to the door on the end and talk to Betty. We talked to Betty and she was very open. We taught her the restoration on her doorstep and she wants to learn more!
Also our member trust went up because one of the members saw us talking to someone on the street.
We saw some good things happen the next day as we raked the lawn of a new investigator and asked her about the Book of Mormon she said she's been reading and praying to know if it's true. She has a huge yard.
A pretty sweet week overall!
Thanks to awesome ward members for feeding our missionaries and sending pictures to moms!
Until next week!
