This week was a little bit of a struggle but we saw a lot of really great things happen!
We also saw Doris (our investigator with Alzymers) and the notebook idea seems to help with her progression. Sister Garner and I both felt prompted to invite her to be baptized and yet again we ignored that prompting! Wow, I can't even believe us right now! We saw her againthough and we invited her then. It didn't feel right to give her a set date but we did ask her if she would be baptized when she came to know for herself that these things are true and she said yes! The hard part now is to help her to remember that she said yes, and also to help her get that confirmation when she can't remember.
That night some members took us out to dinner at a sushi place called stone fish and there were some really good tempura fried rolls! It was kinda weird because it brought back A LOT of memories of working at Wasabi!
We helped the stake Relief Society president make decorations for the stake Relief Society activity that weekend.
That night we were trying less active Young Single Adults....oh yea....did I ever mention that 4th ward also covers the Young Single Adults!!! Its very, very, very small currently, but we are trying to get it built up. There isn't a branch or anything but they still have institute and Family Home Evening and separate Young Single Adults classes ! ...anyway back to the story....This Young Single Adult lives in 1st ward boundaries and so we went to go try him, but he wasn't home. On our way back to the truck we met a kid named Sawyer who has tons of Mormon friends. He said "I love my Mormon friends!!!" He's a Sophomore in high school and in band with a youth in our ward and when we offered him a Book of Mormon he said he's always wanted to read it!!! WHAT!!!! It's not every day that you meet someone who says they want to read the Book of Mormon!!! After talking with him for a while we could just tell that he is so prepared to hear the gospel right now!!! The only sad part about this story (which isn't even sad, because we're all on the same team!) is that we don't get to teach him because he lives in 1st ward boundaries.
We had a lesson with Jerry after Church as well and his non-member wife decided to sit in!!! She isn't interested in really learning more/converting but I thought it was pretty incredible that she sat in!!!
I hope y'all have a wonderful week! I love you all!
