P-Day #26 - Great Companions, Transfers and Plenty of Investigators....

Downtown Toronto, Ontario

This week has been a week of miracles. 

We've been having a really good time getting to know recent converts and less actives this week. We have been running for buses all week and trying to make crosswalk lights. We get a pretty good workout!

We met with this one recent convert after stopping by her house every day for the past week. She was finally home and we were able to find out the reasons for her not being home. She had started a new job and had not had a fixed schedule. We talked with her and shared some scriptures with her on how following the Lords commandments will bless our lives, even when we don't see the results right then and there. We are working with her and finding a time when we can meet her again.

We had one of our investigators come to church this week which we have been trying for the past three weeks. She is one of our French investigators and I called her before our Ward Council meeting started. She said that she would not come to church because of knee problems. Elder Jensen called her to see if she would come, but she said no to him also. She then related how the Spirit said that she needed to go. So, she got a taxi (because we called off the ride we had setup for her) and came to church. She said that she wanted to surprise us. It was really awesome to see her at church and enjoying it. 

We taught an investigator who has been investigator for over a year. She is still not sure if this is the true church. So, we are going to meet with her and see if we need to turn her over to the Lord or not. We will continue to do our very best and what is within our power. 

It's Raining....Just like Home in Oregon!

We have been working with an investigator named Lucky and we had invited him to read the Book of Mormon and he said he would. We then returned to find that he tried but didn't really know how to read the Book of Mormon. We went through the first chapter of Nephi and he then understood how to read the Book of Mormon. We invited him to come to church and he came. He said he liked it.

We've had a lot of appointments fall through but we will still keep trying. We did some advertising for our English class and that has been really helpful in finding new people for the Spanish Elders to teach. 

We found out that one of our investigator's girlfriend had a baby and that he won't be able to meet with us for a while because the delivery was premature. That really gave us a shock but we are hoping this will provide some good incentive to come to church and raise a family in the church. He sounded excited so that was good. We will try to keeping doing the work the best we can.

Lastly, we had transfers and my tri-companionship is remaining the same here in Weston North. I am so thankful for my companions Elder Strong and Elder Monson. They are truly Men of God and fantastic friends. We joke and laugh a lot. Their parents did good! 

Well, that's about it for this week. All is well! And Remember that ole' saying, "Where Ever You Go....There You Are!" ha-ha

Praying for you every night!
