I'm doing well. Life's good and Nam is great!
Not a whole lot has happened this week. We got some new investigators on Tuesday... and lost them on Thursday. A couple sisters that live just down the road from our flat stopped us one evening and invited us to come teach them. Things were going well after the first visit and the second went great. But, at the end she told us that her landlord didn't want us coming to his place anymore. He said, "I don't want those Book of Mormon People in my house." I'm guessing that he had some missionaries go to his house and introduce the Book of Mormon. It explained the way he acted around us.
He has his own church and doesn't want someone coming in and confusing his family and what not. I don't blame him. Nam has had a problem with all these foreign churches and false prophets coming in, taking money, confusing the masses and leaving... He has a right to be skeptical. It's a shame though, because now so many people won't listen to us.
On the other hand, it's helped people see that there should be one church. One such person is Brother Silas. We found him when we went to another investigators and he was there. He himself has stopped going to church because every one he's been to he's discovered that they're fake or not of God. He said he's willing to listen to us and we could call him this week. We talked about how and why all these churches came about and we were all in agreement. I have high hopes for this guy.
Probably the greatest news is we have Brother David on date to be baptized. David is 10 but he loves the church! He understands everything we teach him and he wants to serve a mission even! He's a great kid and because of him many other kids are hearing the gospel. The reason being, he invites everyone in his flat complex to come and listen.
We had Zone Meeting, which was okay I guess. This coming week we have Zone Conference and more happening so next week will be more exciting.
Love you all and have a great week,
