Hmm, so this week has been a good week... we did a lot of service and it was awesome :).. Good news I got my scriptures back!! Ian kept them all safe for me :)
We found some really cool investigators as well.. one called Elishia.. she is from London. We have only had one lesson with her.. things are going well though and she is really open and fun to teach. She is a 35 year old black lady. ha! she is pretty funny and easy to get along with... we don't know too much about her, but she smokes, drinks, and grew up on the streets since thirteen.. she has had a pretty rough life but she believes in being spiritual... so we will see how it goes.. were trying to set up a lesson with her this week :)
We had a really good lesson with Ian number two this week as well.. so Ian is a mathmatician so sometimes he is sorta hard to teach because he breaks everything down and likes to have a conclusion.. when sometimes you just have to go on faith.. we get into some pretty deep stuff with him because he asks deep questions so sometimes our lessons get intense but its all in good fun :) Ian is not married he is sooooo smart though.... you know the American nsa? well here they have something they call GCHQ... he works in the maths department and is just crazy smart... just the other day in our lesson he showed us a few of his skills... he can listen to songs and play them on the piano after a bit of practice!! how nuts is that.... and he is ranked number two in the world on mine sweeper :) I thought gram would like that one ha he is a boss :) on the gospel side of things he doesn't believe in God.... he hasn't established a faith in God...... he prays and stuff and I'm pretty sure God is answering his prayers but he just doesn't recognize it, its killin' me! and Elder Hansen was teaching him from before I even got here! he has good intensions but he just hasn't accepted his answer yet, oh and Ian doesn't smoke or live with a girl! So that's good.
oh p.s. hey Dad!! I got your package! thanks a ton! I was telling all of my mission mates what you do and how my childhood knowledge is based off of these movies and now I can show them! I'll use them for the kids as well but I had to watch one this morning before personal study, ha! it was a blast from the past :) thanks dad. We are teaching a family.. Mel and John.. they have three little girls that are really cool.. next time were teaching I'm going to occupy them with a church movie so we can have a good lesson with Mel and John instead of being jungle gyms :) ill keep ya posted..
