What a week...

Wednesday, October 1, 2008 5:34 AM
So it's been 7 months now... crazy how time flies, this week especially. Wednesday we saw Keisha and had a short, spiritual visit. Afterwards we went on splits with our Elder's Quorum Pres. and his friend. I went with his friend to see Pedro and we talked a lot about Joseph Smith and having prophets today to guide us. He's coming along, but hard to teach because of his work schedule. Elder Karges taught Gloria with our E. Quorum Pres. She's on hold right now because of work on her house so hopefully we'll start teaching her again soon. Thursday we had Zone Meeting in Peckham. It was pretty good. We talked a lot about our commitment to the work and how to strengthen it-really spiritual. Friday we did some finding before doing exchanges with the Assistants. I was with Elder Gaughran from Birmingham. I learned a lot from him and we had a really great teach with Keisha. We're very close to getting a baptismal date with her. Saturday we taught a new guy named Zach. He's really searching for the truth. His family is very traditional with how they do religion so it'll be a hard change for him, but I think he will make it. We had a neat DA with a member named Elizabeth, from Nigeria. She made some really good food, including jolof rice. She even brought a friend to be taught. Her friend didn't stay long so we didn't get to teach much, hopefully in the future. Sunday we taught a lady who just moved here from Nigeria so her English isn't the best, but she was still interested. We also taught a really nice couple from Ecuador/Mexico. Unfortunately I don’t' know if we'll see them again because of their current church. Not too many people are that open-minded to even receive an answer about the Book of Mormon, sadly. Monday, after District Meeting, we saw Keisha shortly and taught her about the importance of prayer. We'll be seeing her every day for the next while. Hopefully that will strengthen her commitment for baptism. Yesterday we visited Stacia and Andrew. They're doing alright. They might be moving out of our area though so I'm not sure what will happen, but they are coming to Conference on Saturday. I'm so excited for it. After this weekend I'll only have two more to watch in the field :-).
Sorry no pictures this week. I haven't been too good with pulling out the camera lately. I'll try to do better this week. Next week is moves week so I'll be e-mailing on Thursday, hopefully still in London, but we'll see. The four of us in Catford think we're all staying, but you never know.... I love you all. Take care and I'll talk to you soon!!
