5-9-2011

I am beginning to finally feel a bit comfortable here in my new area. The members here are really awesome. Something that has really surprised me is how willing people here are to refer their friends and co-workers to us to have us go and see if they'll listen to our message. We're both white guys, and it amazes me how much people trust us with their friends. It is incredible to see the faith that people have in the missionaries.
 
Story time! Alright, se we decided to go talk to a guy who hadn't been contacted in awhile. When we got there, he wasn't home, but his wife and kids were playing outside. We went up and talked to his wife, and she said he'd be home fro work in about 20 minutes if we wanted to stop by and talk to him. We said we'd be back in about half an hour. 30 minutes later we showed up, and knocked on his door. He was there. Apparently in the past he's listened to the missionaries, but he wasn't really all that interested. This time though, he called together all of his kids, and his wife, and wouldn't let us start talking until they were all there sitting and waiting attentively. We basically just talked about the Book of Mormon, what it is, a little about where itcame from, and left them with a chapter to read as a family until we come back next week. They seemed strangely excited, and so was I!  I'm really excited to see where this family goes.  We've got a lot of people here with a lot of potential. I really hope that we can help them all realize how incredible the church is.
 
Unfortunately, that's all the time I have for today.
 
Have a great week!
Elder Williams
