Well, well, well, the weeks just blow by.

I've had some interesting experiences this past week. Many of them were testimony builders. A small miracle that happened on Friday: We went to a couple's house named Austin & Rose (if you remember them). Austin was caught up in west London so we just started to teach Rose. We figured he wouldn't be back until about 11 pm because of the bus schedules, but not even half way through the teach he showed up. He said he took a train because he wanted to make it back in time. We taught the two of them about the Book of Mormon and the Spirit was quite strong.
Saturday We did a bit of finding. Finding has been a little off lately because of the weather and school starting back up again. Not too many people are out shopping and few are at home, but we decided to knock some newer flats near ours. We got in to teach a few people. We only picked up two of them as new Investigators. We also taught a woman from Kampala, Uganda (I think that's where E. Smith is or was?). She's got 4 children and was quite open to learn about the church. She really liked the Book of Mormon, but sadly we haven't been able to get hold of her since Sunday Morning.
Sunday was our Fast and Testimony Meeting and it was really good. The ward members bore some great testimonies and the spirit was very strong. E. Karges and I taught the Sunday School class, which as far as we know, went pretty well ;-). In the evening we taught a man from Mozambique. It was really neat because when we got there he was watching Ben Hur on TV. We taught him a little about the Plan of Salvation and answered some of his questions. When it was time to go to our next appointment we mentioned that we would talk to them about Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon next visit his son who was on his laptop the whole time said that he read about it on the internet. He found it just browsing so the next visit should be pretty good.
Monday wasn't too bad. We met a guy at the Lewisham Library to help him order a quad. He told us that he had been taught years ago and was just interested in the scriptures, not us teaching him. Well after about 15 minutes of discussing doctrine we got him to reconsider and we should be seeing him this weekend :-). We also saw the two ladies we knocked into in the new flats. We taught them about the Restoration and they really liked it.
Yesterday wasn't too bad. We didn't get too much finding done because of bus travel. We did talk to a lot of good people, but it was just one of those days where you only plant seeds. We saw Larry for a little bit and just reviewed what we taught him last time. We then read from the Book of Mormon with him because he can't with his sight impairment. It was a special visit.
Today we're going to head up to the London Eye for a little bit and play some Footi. We've played a couple times at a court nearby our flat. We're trying to play as much as we can while the weather is still good. Sorry if this e-mail has been a bit choppy. I'm in a hurry.

The pictures are from last night making cookies (thanks mom)

and a view from the top of some flats over Catford and you can see Lewisham in the distance. Love you all!
Till next week,
Elder Warner
