Another awesome day in paradise
Well this week has been weird. Not like any other week I have had on my mission. Mostly because we had to stay in all day Saturday and only go to Sacrament on Sunday and then go home all day because Elder Boehmer was and still is really sick and wasn't allowed to be in anyone's house so the last few days has been really boring.
One thing that did happen that was awesome is that we got a call from one of our investigators, named Garry. He called us and told us that he wanted us to come over because he had just read a chapter from the Book of Mormon that we left him to read the last time we met with him. He told us how it reminded him of the Lords prayer and how reading 2 Nephi 31 made him feel good and really calmed him down from the stress he had been feeling and so we were talking to him and Elder Boehmer asked him if he wanted to become a member of our church and he told us that is something he would like to do in the future but he has a smoking problem so he didn't want to set a date to be baptized yet but as we continued to talk to him and eventually invited him to be baptized and also helped him set a goal to quit smoking he agreed and it was so awesome how the spirit worked within him and helped him see that he needed to be baptized so it was really cool and Awesome to see because Garry has been taught since the end of December and he has came to church like 10 times so it was really good to help him make the jump and the goal to be baptized.
Another really crazy thing that happened on Wednesday while we were on exchanges and I was with Elder Winkler, who was Elder Kelly's trainer. We were out knocking on some D's and he recognized a house that he and Elder Kelly knocked on Elder Kelly's first day in the mission and they found a guy who was interested but the Elders in Clearbrook never were able to contact him so we went and knocked on his door and were able to teach him and his daughter. It was really awesome because I was completely guided by the spirit that we go knock on the street we were on even though we didn't know it at the time.
Sorry this Email is kind of short but almost half of our week was cut short because we had to stay in the apartment for a few days.
Love Elder Slack
