Awesome Week March 11, 2013
This week was pretty awesome. On Tuesday we went on exchanges with the zone leaders. It was so great .We were contacting in a neighborhood and saw a woman sitting on her porch. When we went up and talked to her she told us she was a Jehovah's Witness, but didn't go to church any more because of some stuff she disagreed with. Anyway she read somewhere in the Bible that the lost sheep would be found by the disciples of Christ. And on 3 separate occasions she ran into LDS missionaries at 3 different locations. She let us into her house and we left a blessing with her. After the blessing we asked if we could come by and she said to come by in two hours. So two hours later we taught her the first lesson. She loved it and the spirit taught her so well. She kept saying, "Why don't the Witnesses have prophets?" She even called her mom and asked her during the lesson. She committed to baptism on the 30th of March. She's in the area for the Zone Leaders so i don't get to teach her but am really excited for her nonetheless.
The weather was super cold on Wednesday, but after that it was amazing. Great time to contact. We talked to tons of people. Got some really good potential investigators. So we're really excited and hoping to meet with a lot of new investigators this next week.
Yesterday I played a special musical number in church. It was an arrangement I made of "I'll Go Where You Want Me to Go" with a bit of "Called to Serve" It went okay. I wasn't super proud of the arrangement and I messed up a bit but it went okay. Everyone seemed to like it at least. It was for a sister's farewell who's going to Italy.
Um for pants... Probably 30 waist 32 length or maybe 32/32 and either black or gray would be good.
Crazy everything that's going on back home... glad to here from some of you this week thanks a ton for writing.
So that's about it this week. We basically contacted and tracted all week. Next week is transfer calls so I'll know if I'm getting a new companion or area next Monday.
