my week in a nutshell

Well last week was busy and kind of crazy.

As you know we have been trying to pick up John as an investigator and we did. He asked us if he could meet with us. So we set up a time to meet with him. We were also helping him with his yard. So we taught him the Restoration.  That went really well and he still wants to meet with us. We couldn't contact Lorsne this week, we found out later it was because his phone broke. Both he and John showed up at church as well as Jerry (John's adopted dad who is less active). That was exciting to see them, they participated well in gospel principles. There is a member who is a professor at Cal-Poly (i think that is how you spell it) who is in our ward, Bro. Lamb. Lorsne and Bro. Lamb know each other so that was a nice surprise for both of them. Brenda and Sean, we haven't been able to meet with them last week. 

Thursday morning we got a call from the missionaries in the Claremont first ward, and they told us they had meet a part member family that lives in our ward who wants to meet with the missionaries, so we got the information, and gave the wife, who is not a member, a call. The husband is less active and the kids are not members. She sounded excited to meet with us, and we are planning on meeting with them. Saturday we had dinner with the bishop and when we told him that he told us that members in the ward have been working with them for a long time. It sound like he was going to ask us to go and visit them. The Lord works in amazing ways.

We went to subway on our way home from helping John in his yard. So we were still in our work clothes with our name tags on. The girl that was making our sandwiches saw them and started to talk with us. She told us that her mom used to meet with missionaries, so we asked what her moms name was when she told us it was Denise Sheets both Elder Bell and I recognized that name as a former investigator.  And she asked us to go by, the next day when we had some time we went over there. Denise said that is was okay for us to keep coming by, we even saw her daughter, whose name is Brittney, they both said that they would come to church, but they didn't show up, so we are going to try and stop by again this week.  

A member gave us a referral, which means they gave us a name of a person or family for us to go and teach. The family name was McGarey and they know a few people in the ward. So we stopped by both of them were feeling sick but they said to come by on another day. They seem excited to meet with us. Then Saturday night we got 4 referrals from the Spanish Sisters who we need to contact this week. So that's my week in a nutshell, thanks for the love and support.
