Hello everyone! This week has been great! We got some investigators out to church which was awesome. Overall things have been really great!
We taught a few lessons this week and also got to go on exchanges with our zone leaders. I went with Elder Bates. We went to go see a man named Brian who we have been teaching for sometime now and have been trying to get him out to church. The lesson was interesting. His gf was there and she talked our ears off and didn't let us do any teaching. But eventually we just kind of ignored her and focused on Brian. We asked a ton of questions and he truly trusts us, so it became a matter of does he trust us enough to come to church? Because he knows that our whole purpose is to get him as close to God as we possibly can. So he said he would come and there was no way he was missing. So that was great. We also taught an investigator named Comfort and her family and we invited them all out to church. Comfort did great there. She brought her daughter Dora who is preganant and her two other kids named Lisa (6) and Calvin(8). They seemed to love it. They had to leave out of the third hour though because Comfort had to work. but it was great for her to come. She got there and then all the Liberian women took her off and then we didn't see her again until she left and she said that she loved it! So we were very happy about that. Brian didn't make it though. he doesn't have a car and so his friend who was going to drive him to church bailed out on him at the last second. That was a bummer. He was really stoked to come too! We were also planning on having another investigator named Max there as well. He is great. Although we haven't seen hi since the first lesson we had with him. We really need to reach out to him again. Hopefully things are going well for him.
We had district meeting on Saturday. IT went really really well! We set some goals for baptisms in the district. We currently have 8 baptisms scheduled for
April and our goal is 5! I have some interviews to do this week which I am really excited about! I have never done one before. Hopefully those go well. At District meeting Elder Zabriskie gave us a training on revelation through the Book of Mormon. He said that likening the scriptures is the bridge we make between testimony and conversion. We can all have a testimony of the book of Mormon or of Joseph Smith but until we liken the words we read and do what the scriptures say, then we will never be converted to them. We want truly hunger after them! Anyways, I just thought that was great!
I love you all! Elder Standage and I are doing graet and we are looking forward to a lot of miracles this week. We want to work harder and
I think this week is the week to do it. I love you! And you are in my prayers!
Love always,
Elder Caleb James Wardle
