10 October 2016

We had a REALLY short week! I don't even remember half of it! We did have fun watching conference, though, and found some new investigators, who were surprising, to say the least. We found the first one, Daniel, in an auto on Tuesday. He just jumped in an auto with us, and we started talking to him. He turned out to be surprisingly willing to meet with us! We talked with him on Thursday, at the church. He seemed excited- showed up half an hour early, made it to the church without problems, and listened to everything we had to say. The only problem was, he didn't talk much. After the lesson, we found out possibly why. One of the members who had been there before us overheard him talking to the security guard about "finding out how they convert people." We'll see how reliable that is. The second new investigator we got was also a funny story. He showed up to church on Sunday, but I didn't recognize him. My companion did- apparently, he'd been investigating for over two years. I asked a couple of questions, and was very confused by the answers. The guy's name was Prem, and he wasn't studying and was only looking for a job. For missionaries, this reads "available anytime." Even better, he is amazing. I asked about whether or not he knew the church was true. He said yes. I asked if he knew the Book of Mormon was true. He said yes again. Then I asked why he wasn't baptized, and he didn't know. We ended up talking to him for a while. He is from a Lutheran family, and doesn't actually know all that much about our church. He says he knows it's true, but he doesn't really believe it. While we were talking about the Book of Mormon, he told us he hadn't even read it! He is smart though, so we are hoping for progress. We committed him to read and pray about the Book of Mormon, and I think he will.

Conference especially was good! We listened to all of the talks, and all of them were awesome. I loved Pres. Uchtdorf's first talk most, though. That was incredible. Oh, and Elder Holland's talk on home teaching. His talks are always memorable, but this one more than most. 

Apart from those, we struggled to find appointments this week. We had loads of things going on, between functions and conference and some minor crises. Just last night, a wall next to our apartment fell down and killed two people! I guess the reminder there is to repent now...you never know when you'll be called back. I'm really looking forward to getting the conference edition of the Liahona in the mail! 

That pretty much wraps up our week. It was fun, but short! See Ya!
