So, last month cute little Elise got baptised and wanted to invite her friends so she took an invitation over to her neighbor, Guy. On the invitation it said that she would be baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. So Guy looks up the name of the church online and finds Mormon.org. through Mormon.org he starts to read the Book of Mormon before the Baptism. He comes to the Baptism and feels the spirit. We met him at the Baptism and he says thay he "knows all all about the Jacobites and the Zoramites" and asks if he could have a copy of the Book of Mormon! He also told us he thinks it's great that we are out doing missionary work and he wonders why most churches don't!
So time goes on and his neighbors continue to follow up and see how he is and he likes the Book of Mormon so much and he also wants to read the Doctrine and Covenants and Pearl of Great Price, so he buys himself a quad! He is currently reading in Alma chapter 34. He used to teach the Theology of the Old testament so he really knows the scriptures. He told us that reading the Book of Mormon just makes him feel better. He also says how it's been his life goal to comfort those who need comfort and that he believes in how we view God and wow could he be more prepared?
Guy Scaggs gives us hope. He's technically not even an investigator yet but he will be!
We had to drop Roberta and Jim this week. It was really hard. But they will come around.
We also had to drop Lianne and we haven't been able to get in contact with selina again, so there goes our teaching pool. But Guy will hopefully be an investigator soon!
Love you all,
1. I held a really cute kitty this week. But I liked it a lot more than it liked me. A lot like my relationship with the people of Washington.
2. We made this well for the ward Christmas party. They went ALL OUT. People would reach into the well to get their water bottles.
3. Are we in Morton, or are we in BETHLEHEM? I can't tell
4. Biggest tender mercy ever - last Monday we were running into Wallmart for a few last minute things and the Bell ringer stopped us and asked if we were Mormons. We got talking and he said he was a member in BOURBONNAIS but has now moved to Peoria. I talked with his son and had a lesson set up with him before I left! He knew the Beyers and Brother Anderson and I just love Bourbonnais.
