I know I don't often write to much about the people we are working with because most of the time I don't want to go into detail about people who will probably drop us in 2 to 3 weeks. However Most everyone that I have taken the time to write about in my journal have been baptzied since. So there are 2 new people who are beyond solid right now who I have very high hopes for. One of them is F. She is what we would call a real investigator, because she is actually investigating! If people would simply do the things we ask them to the way we asked them to do it a lot more people would make covenants with God. F does everything. She is a teacher so we took the advantage of that and have been giving her very detailed home work assignments incorporating prayer in and sciptures. She loves it! She does have some concerns though, but that is okay so long as she involves Heavenly father in the process and asks her questions with no ill will she will feel the spirit move more in her life. We met her tracting and at first she almost closed the door on us but after a little bit of persistence we were able to teach her and she has been progressing ever since.
The second persons name is J. He is a 30 year old Family man who has to use a wheelchair due to a childhood accident. We were out with Brother B (a convert of about 10 years) contacting potentials and we felt impressed to stop by his house. When j opened the door he looked at us and then looked at Brother B and said "Hey B ! how are you doing?? how long has it been? 20 years or so?" Brother B recognized him as well. Apparently Brother B had been J youth minister at a baptist church when J was 10 years old!! After talking a bit we were able to share the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Brother B was able to teach him a little differently than he did 20 years ago. It was an awesome lesson and we all walked away commenting on how great of an experience it was and will continue to be as we help him progress.
It has been a fun week and I look forward to seeing you all very soon
