January 19, 2015 - Area 2: Clearbrook (Abbotsford)


This week we went finding... a lot. Elder Johnson and I have been doing what we can to find those who are ready to hear about the gospel. We've found several potentials, but there isn't any telling where they'll end up save it be one.

The most solid of these was a Native woman named Sara who was actually referred to us by Chris, a long time investigator. Elder Lamb and I had met her briefly the last time we went to Chris' place. She popped out of another room and introduced herself but disappeared as quickly as she came. We saw Chris on Friday and he asked us permission to have Sara join in the lesson. The answer was yes of course!

Sara is quite a remarkable woman. She was born in Fort McMurray but moved to BC when she was two. She's a childhood friend of Chris' and has worked her way out of a rough lifestyle. She seems to shine with this positive vibe that makes it easy to like her. We taught her about the Book of Mormon and she loved the thing! As we were talking with Chris, I noticed her reading the introduction and the testimony of the 3 and 8 witnesses. Chris hasn't been reading the Book of Mormon and hasn't come to church in a very long time. When we chastised him, Sara took our side and told him "we should totally study this together! It would be fun!"  Music to a missionaries ears indeed! 

Aside from meeting with Sara, there's not much else to talk about. We tried to re contact a lot of potentials and formers with a few members but things haven't clicked with them. Nolan has fallen off the earth it seems.

Our new zone leader is Elder Mahabeer who is from Jamaica. I haven't been around him very much but he seems cool. He's only been out 6 months! Hope everyone is having a good January and that its not too cold. Ta for now!
