Winter Showers bring spring flowers?
Well, this week was really wet! It has rained a ton here this last week. I now know why they say spring showers because it has pretty much been raining non stop this week except for some random times when it gets sunny and then it rains again. I feel like I have seen more rain in the last 4 weeks than I have in the first 18 years of my life. I never thought I would have to deal with rain when I came to Canada. I thought I would be walking in 2 feet of snow everyday and riding dog sleds.
Anyways on Tuesday Gary, our investigator who told us he
didn't want to meet for a while, told us he wanted us to come by and talk with
him so we did and at first he told us he didn't want to come to church for a
while but by the end of the lesson he committed himself to come to church! He
also told us that Carol is probably going to be getting out of the hospital soon!
So it seems like their life is finally going to be getting back to normal soon
and hopefully we can start helping them get over their smoking addiction and
help them get baptized because for Gary the only thing holding him back is his
Word of Wisdom problem. He identifies himself as a Mormon when he talks to
people. He is really cool. He just needs to stop having big problems happen so
we can focus on helping him.
Probably the coolest thing that happened this week is when one of our appointments fell through and we where going to go street contacting but it was raining really good and we figured no one would be walking out side so we went tracting on this random street. The first house we knocked on we meet a guy named Jassi and we taught him about Baptism on the doorstep and asked him if he would like to be baptized and he said Yes!! We set up a time to come back the next day. So we came back and we were really nervous that he didn't speak English because we run into a lot of East Indians who don't speak English and just say yes to us. So we thought that is what happened but when we went back we taught him, his wife and their daughter the restoration and they said that they would read and pray about the book of Mormon as a family! It was really Awesome! It was even cooler because that is the first family that I have found and taught on my mission.
Well sorry this letter is so short but I don’t know what else to write about unless you want to know a good talk to read and in that case read the talk called "His Grace is Sufficient" by Brad Wilcox. It is amazing!! (it is amazing by the way)
