Wow this week has been a bit of a gong show, but it was a good gong show. In total we got 3 new investigators and dropped one of them already.Monday
"Hey are you mormons?"
"Well yes we are."
"How do I get a Book of Mormon?"
"Well, we don't have one on us right now, but we can bring one to your door."
"Oh never mind then."
She walks away. Elder H yells at her saying that if she sees other missionaries to ask them. We continue shopping and a few minutes later she comes back.
"Do you have a card or something? I really want a Book of Mormon. Could we meet somewhere?"
"We could meet at your home."
"No I'd rather not. Could we meet here tomorrow."
"Well this is a little far from where we live. We live next to Londonderry Mall we could meet you there?"
"Ok, see you tomorrow. My name is Elizabeth by the way"
It was one of the weirdest experiences that kept going throughout the week. You'll hear the whole story slowly. It's crazy. Well the rest of p-day was good. We didn't play basketball again. Instead we played floor hockey. We ended up playing full court too. It was awesome. We went to Laubman's for supper. Some thing hit me while we were there. I thought it was I just got a minute to finally relax for a bit, but it kept up. Our lesson fell through that night, so we went back to do some phone calls. I was wiped out. We planned out the next day and I went to bed at like 9.
LRT and prep. I still had close to zero energy. We went and met Elizabeth at the mall.
"Thank you for the Book of Mormon. It is actually for my son. He is really interested in this right now and would like to meet with you."
"Ok well can we have his number to call him?"
"No he'll give you a call to probably meet with you tomorrow.""Ok well our number is in the back of the Book"
Well we had church. We were hoping more investigators were going to show up. The only one was Annette and Kennedy. Church was really good. We then went home, had our lunch break, had a little bit of studies. We were talking about Alex and decided to call him to see if he was really interested in what we were teaching or if he just wanted the information. He said he was really interested so we told him we would meet him at the church at 3. Well we went to the church and waited around for a little bit. It was a little after 3 and we called him. Elizabeth answered. "You made it pretty clear you didn't want to meet with him"
"We just wanted to see if he was interested. We still want to meet with him"
"Well he thought you didn't, so goodbye."
That is the end of the crazy story. It ended in a little miscommunication. Too bad. Well while we were there we remembered about Sister Gillespie. We called Bro Skinner to see if he would go with us to give her the Sacrament. We went then he dropped us off at our apartment. We were picked up by Bro Branco for supper at there house. They are great. They are going on a trip this week so I won't be able to see them before transfers. It was a great time with them. We then went down to meet with Joe and Sheena. We finally met with Sheena. She already knows the church is true and wants to be baptized. May 10 is when.
It was overall a crazy week, but ended really well. 2 new investigators and 4 investigators on date. Londonderry is doing great. I'm going to miss this place. One week left. :(
