FEB 16, 2015 Pictures!/ Keeping Focused/ YSA/ 2 New Investigators

Well, this week was good. Have you ever seen The Best Two Years? It's a funny movie about missionaries and one missionary gets a bunch of letters from home and he's reading them and he says, 'This is Trunking me out of my mind!!' It's pretty funny. That was my Tuesday/Wednesday, not because of letters though. It was because we had a tea appointment with a YSA aged member and pretty much all she talks about during our tea appointments is movies, and they're usually movies that I haven't seen yet, but I will be seeing in approximately five months. So that was nice, but then on Wednesday, we had a meeting in Chorley. Which was great.  We got to see Meet the Mormons because it's coming to England! Be jealous, all of you other foreign missionaries. The only thing is, guess what month it's coming to England? June. 

(He comes home June 25th)

Yeah. And then we had a series of activities in groups and the whole time I was thinking, 'wow, this must be what institute/YSA is like...' So yeah, but don't worry, I got refocused and now I'm fine. Plus, we had some great missionary work which I'm going to tell you about via ctrl+C, Ctrl+V. =D
 On Thursday in the hour before weekly planning, we went out and tried by some people who weren't in and street contacted on the way. The last five minutes before we got back to the flat, we found two new investigators in a row. One of them, we've already seen him again. He is amazing, he doesn't really look like the type of person who would be interested in the gospel, but he said that he always talks to Jehovah's Witnesses when they stop him and he's really interested in religion and finding out about the purpose in life and in changing his life around. We met him again at the library on Saturday and he told us that he really wants to get forgiveness and he's really excited to learn about what we're teaching him.

We also have another investigator that we actually met last week, but we didn't get a chance to see her until Saturday. She is Catholic, but she isn't practicing and she was interested to learn about what we believe. She is also looking to find the truth and she told us that she has already studied some other religions, including Buddhism. When we came to our appointment, she invited us right in and we taught her the restoration. Our recent convert, (Jill) was there and she bore a great testimony, and she told her that she used to be a Catholic when she was younger, which we didn't even know. (Jill) knew just what to say to help, and it was amazing.
Have a nice week, bye!
