I Am a Happy Boy

Hey there all you cuties!

This has been a really good week! Elder Martinez and I have really broken down and just hit the ground running in this new transfer. We're going crazy just trying to find as many new people as we can to start teaching. New investigators up the wazoo, that's what I'm talking about! We've met a lot of cool people this week that I believe will be able to progress lots and lots.

We met this guy named Pepe this week, from Peru. He's Evangelical, and we found him as we knocked on the door of an old investigator that we were trying to contact. The funny thing is, we met him, and he instantly kinda gave us the cold shoulder and didn't seem to wanna hear it. He just said over and over again "Our religions are just different, so yeah." But we weren't gonna take that. We just kept drawing connections between him and us as we talked, and we were determined. It really was just such a cool experience, because we could see with our four eyes the change that took place in his heart as we talked with him. We introduced the Book of Mormon, and at that point in the discussion, he seemed wholly devoted to learning more. And now he wants us to come back and teach him! Such a cool blessing.

We also met Rosi and Rudi. They're old investigators who I'd thought moved. Turns out I had accidentally just knocked on the door of the house right next to theirs which looks exactly like their house. Whoops. But hey, we found 'em! They are such cool peeps. We walked in and they were just so thankful that we'd take the time to knock on their door and teach them about God and whatnot. They just ate up the message of the Restoration and it was one of the best lessons I've ever been a part of!

And we've just seen a lot of cool little stuff like that this week. I'm as happy as a... what's the phrase? An oyster? Something like that. Anyway, I hope everyone has a very nice week! And I will talk to you soony.
