April 13, 2015

Well, I'm sure lots of wonderful things happened this week, none of which I can really remember at the moment :) But I know it was a pretty good week. Lots of biking! And it's been nice and hot... or rainy. Sometimes both. So that's kind of hard without a car, but we make do :) And on the bright side, we meet a lot more people being outside all the time. We've found a ton of new investigators. 

We've still been running into a lot of people who don't speak or understand English very well. The other day we found a whole street of Haitians.  Who knew I would come to Florida and feel like a minority? :) But the diversity at least makes things interesting :)

We've had to drop a lot of our investigators because they won't keep commitments, which is always hard. But we still have Yangmi. For now. Her visa is about to expire so if she can't get into grad school, she'll have to go back to Japan. We're so sad, we're love her to death. On Sunday she fasted for the first time, and we and a bunch of members fasted with her for her to know that God is real. The bishop had no idea we were doing that, but at the end of church he asked if he could give her a blessing. It ended up being a really emotional experience for her and at the end she told us that she felt like someone really was there blessing her. 

Our other main investigator is a 9-year-old boy from a part-member family. He's a good kid, but a little rambunctious and hard to teach. So that's been interesting :) And we've found a couple new people that seem promising, so we shall see :)

We had our first lesson with Chase since his baptism and he kept telling us how good he's been feeling. He said it feels like he's receiving something. He's basically been a member for a long time, we're all so happy that he finally is :)

Overall things are going great :) We've been kind of forced to work pretty hard, which is actually good. It feels really good to know that I'm serving the Lord with all that I have. And I'm grateful for the opportunity to do that :)
