Hi Family,
I thought that this sign would go great on the blog. It's been going around the mission and it's hilarious. There is a lot of anti-Mormon around here, but I can't believe a church would put that up on their sign. Yesterday we had 2 people show up to church! One of them was Richard, a older man in his 60's, that we have been trying to commit him to baptism every time we meet him. I was surprised to see him there at church when we pulled up. After sacrament meeting he said that the service was really quiet, not like the other church that he goes to that is really loud and moves you. So he want us to go with him to his church this Saturday. I think it is a baptist church, so that will be fun, but then we can talk about what was felt at our church and what he felt at his church and hopefully get him to recognise the spirit. Angela FINALLY came to church. Saturday we helped her put some window a/c in her home, so we knew where she really lived. We usually meet her at her ex-fiance's house where she watches her daughters all day. So we committed her to come to church Saturday night, called her a 8 am before church to wake her up, and then finally ended up knocking on her door to wake her up, but she came and stayed all 3 hours.
2 of our investigators ended up moving out of town last week, Mitch and Quinton and Melissa. I was bummed about it but Elder Wilson and I have been doing a lot of finding and now have added 8 new investigators to our teaching pool. Two of the more solid ones are Carl and Arnet. Both are looking for direction and answers, we are so excited. One of the members in our branch, Bro. Near also gave us a referral a couple of days ago (his name is Travis, please pray for him specifically by name) and we are trying to set up a appointment today at Bro. Near's home to teach him. We have been so blessed the last couple or weeks, miracles are taking place and it's just a blessing to be a part of it all.
I LOVE YOU ALL -Elder Hale
