Hi again from the wonderful land of Dundee! This was kind of a rollercoaster! Never a dull moment.
Sadly, we had a ton of appointments cancel this week, both with investigators and with potential investigators. Due to all the cancellations, we had a lot of time to go finding. As a result, we found some super awesome people! The most promising is a girl named Nikita. She is in her early 20's and super nice! We chapped her door and she immediately seemed really interested in what we were saying. We talked about the Book of Mormon and how it restores truth that were lost from the Bible and she said she used to go to Catholic school and that she felt they like left a lot of stuff out. Could she be anymore prepared? We will be meeting with her this week so really looking forward to that!
We did get a new investigator this week as well. Her name is Kate. She is about 50, was born in England, but raised in Cambodia. She has had a pretty hard life. Her mom kicked her out not long after her dad passed away, her son strongly dislikes her, and she has a lot of demons that come back to haunt her. When we met with her, we shared the Book of Mormon with her and what it's role is and she seemed so excited and willing to learn and read. It's going to be a long process, but we will get there eventually!
We got to see the Petrie family again this week (the family with 12 kids and 6 are getting ready to be baptised)! Had another really great lesson! The only downside was that they weren't able to make it to church this week which isn't good. We are working on reactivating the parents and in order for the kids to progress and hit their date, they have to be coming to church. Guess what we will be talking about this week?
Another fun thing that happened this week was we met an American! We chapped her door and she answered but seemed like she was going to slam it right away, that is until I started talking. She told us that the only reason she didn't slam the door was because I was American too. #Merica!! We ended up talking with her for 1 1/2 hours, mostly about the state the world was in and what we can do to improve it. Didn't get a return appointment, but she said that we could come by anytime! It was pretty fun!
Can't really think of anything else noteworthy that happened last week. This week should be pretty busy exciting so next weeks email should be awesome!!!
Sorry for the lack of pictures! I will do better this week!
Love and miss you all! Stay awesome! Keep moving forward!
