better week

So last week was a good week. Also a little crazy with how things worked out.

Monday evening we were at dinner, while we were there we got a call from Jerry (the less active member with the non-member son named John). He called twice and left a message, we checked the message and he thought we were coming over, there was some miscommunication we thought he had said Sunday the day before, when we tried it was a bad time. So anyway Elder Bell and I both felt like we needed to go there he lived just around the corner from where we were. We biked over there and when we got there there was a man in his late twenties standing out front. He asked are you  Mormons? We said yeah we are we are looking for Jerry and John. He then said Oh they are inside and he let us inside. His name is Lornse, he is renting a room from Jerry. He moved from Italy about four and a half years ago and is going to school to be an engineer. He was also talked with missionaries in Italy. He started asking some questions, and we just started with the Restoration. Jerry was there, John got up and left into the other room. Lorsne had questions, he accepted what we taught him, and a Book of Mormon he said that he would read it. Then we both felt like we should invite him to be baptized. We told us that if he found out the Book of Mormon and what we taught was true he would be baptized. We left and were like that was awesome. He meet with him again on Saturday, which was just as awesome. We got there and it was just Lorsne this time. He had read the first 6-8 chapter of First Nephi. We answered his questions, he said that he had been praying about it, but is still not sure. Then we asked if he had any other questions, then he asked what happens to those that die and didn't not get to hear about Mormonism, Elder Bell and looked at each other and smiled and started to teach him the Plan of Salvation. That went really well, he said that he would keep reading and asking if what he taught was true. We plan on meeting him this week. 

We weren't able to to meet with Brenda last week or Sean. We decided that we should drop Amber. We couldn't get in contact with her. She wouldn't answer her phone and she wasn't home. And we think she wasn't all there mentally. And it didn't seem like she wanted to meet with us, because she wouldn't contact us. Stuff think this happens so we just move on.

Other than that it was kind of a boring week. Thanks for the love and support
