Well I better get started. We've had some pretty good things happen over the past week. We've seen Stacia off and on. She's really starting to learn how to learn and apply the teachings of the Book of Mormon. I don't think she realizes it, but she's doing it. We taught a pretty neat couple from Nigeria on Thursday. They aren't really investigating the church, but the husband did say that he would have the Book of Mormon read, cover to cover, by tomorrow evening when we will see them next. We got a referral from the Manchester mission as well. They were teaching a man from Haitian, Bhutan and he even had a baptismal date for September, but moved down to our area. We've gotten a hold of him and he said he's excited to see us, but we still don't have an appointment yet.
Sunday we had a neat evening. We planned to knock a certain road as a backup plan if an appointment fell through. Well it did fall through and we were on our way there, but got caught up on a bus because we were practically teaching a 17 yr old guy. Nothing really came of it, but a big seed was planted.
Me and E. Karges on the bus! Love those colorful seats!
When we got to the road we only had about 15 minutes to knock. We prayed for guidance and both thought of a number. One of us thought of 32 and the other 23. We figured it was close enough and we would knock both. We got to the end of the street (it was small) worried that there wasn't a 32, but it was the last one. We knew it was for a reason. We kind of rushed to the door with excitement and rang the bell. A couple minutes went by and no one answered. We felt like we should ring again. We did and finally someone came to the door. He was sleeping. Long story short we got an appointment and by the time we finished talking to him we had to head back to the flat. A small miracle, but still a miracle nonetheless.
Monday we had District Meeting in Crystal Palace and I brought E. McPhie to our area.

We had an amazingly spiritual teach with a man named Terry. He really wanted to know about the Book of Mormon and said if he knew it was true he would be baptized. We'll be calling him later today to ask him how it went.
Yesterday wasn't too bad. E. Karges came back in the morning and we did a bit of finding. We taught Hyacinth and Nelicia last night. We showed them the Restoration DVD and they really liked it. They even said they wanted to buy it. Today is pretty exciting. After our landlord comes and inspects our flat we're going to go play some Footi down in Catford and in the evening we should be seeing Gloria, Larry, and Austin and Rose. Hopefully all will go well. Sorry my e-mails are getting all over the place. I'm trying to make more time to respond to every e-mail I get. I love you all. Keep safe and I'll talk to you soon. (Christmas isn't too far off....)
