Wow, time goes by fast! I don't have many more of these to write!
This week we received a ton of referrals. By a ton, I mean like 4, which is actually quite a bit if you aren't serving stateside. We have tried to contact all of them, but only managed to get a hold of one.
So this guy just sent a letter to the church last week saying he wanted us to come by. Now the letter was kind of interesting in the way he describes himself. So we were kind of worried, but he is actually really cool. He is definitely not all the way there, but this guy has a ton of interest in the church. The problem is that he met with the Jehovah's Witnesses as well, so some of their beliefs are mixed up with ours in his head, but we are working on that!
We had another lesson with an investigator that we have been meeting with for a while. The problem is that she doesn't want to do anything and hasn't been keeping any of her commitments. So we have to stop meeting with her. It's sad, but if she doesn't keep her commitment, then it's not worth our time to meet with her.
Other than that, we went dooring just about the whole week. We have a district goal to get a least 15 rejections everyday before we head home, even if it's dinner time. It's kind of like reverse psychology, but it actually works pretty well. It helps us see how many people we talk to and gives us motivation to keep going despite the "Nos" we get.
Other than that, some meeting here and there and lots of driving! We found other people throughout the week and we are looking at a very busy week coming up!
