Hard Work - Week 63

Elder Woodruff, Elder Moli, Elder Ort, Me
It was definitely another week of hard work.

On Wednesday we had to drop Elder Woodruff and Elder Ort off at the airport which was kind of sad but I am happy to have met them both and excited to see them again! But later that night we had another lesson with Philippe and he told us basically that he would never join the church or get baptized. So that was kind of a bummer, but I guess it just isn't his time yet!

On Thursday we did weekly planning in the morning and some finding after lunch. We had a lesson with a man named Chris about the plan of Salvation which he didn't agree too much with, which was kind of a bummer... But later that night we were able to go and do some service for an investigator we contacted last week. We pulled some weeds in her garden and cut down some bushes, it was a lot of fun and helped her a lot! Especially good because she paid us with dinner on Sunday!

On Friday we had a whole lot fall through and spent a good chunk of the time finding. We found some okay people, hopefully that will turn into really solid investigators who want to learn more! But the rest of our night was spent trying to contact some other investigators and setting up lessons for later in the week.

On Saturday we went to visit some of Elder Woodruff's investigators in the morning because the missionary to replace him and his companion don't get here until Thursday. So that was good and by the time we got back to our area we had all of our lessons fall through and then had to go back down to the church for a talent show! It was pretty great, there are a lot of really talented people here with voices and they sure can dance! Haha

On Sunday Church was really good and we were able to have a young man named Khalil come out with us, but the first lesson that we taught was to a Jehova's Witness man who just wanted to try and prove us wrong, so that was kind of a bummer. But we did have a great lasson with a woman named Marisa who seems really interested in the gospel and changing her life around!

All in all it was a good week, not a whole lot going on.

Hope all is well

With love,

Elder Dorrance
