This week was really good! I've noticed that our lesson numbers have been becoming higher and higher each week. I may have mentioned a few times that Forsyth is really starting to grow. There is a lot of potential here. Most people that we talk to are really receptive and we have a lesson and solidly place a book of Mormon with them.
For district meeting we had Elder Eddington there because he was going to be going on an exchange with us for a few days after. After district meeting we left to Hysham because we had a lesson with the E.family who are on date and really solid on being baptized on the 28th of March. during the lesson; brother E, brought up some concerns about forgivness. We were able to show him the video about forgiveness and how it takes time for some people to get to that point. We feel that they definitely felt the spirit and were somewhat softened. They are a solid family, it is just a matter of trying to smooth out some of the bumps in the road.
Because of that concern that they had while we tried to fix it the best we could, We ended up having a really long lesson that went over an hour. We do realize not to stay there that long. But we had to resolve that concern carefully and by the spirit. We feel that they were touched.
The exchange lasted until Thursday evening. On Friday we tried to see a lady that we were going to put on date and she opened the door and flat out said, " look guys, I am not going to become Mormon." So we basically told her that her choice was her choice and if she didn't want to meet with us anymore, than we were fine with that because usually they are not ready for the gospel yet. The beginning of the week was really good to start off, but the end of the week turned out to not be so great. But I am glad that this area is improving because of our efforts in going out and teaching others the gospel and seeing our numbers improve.
Thats my week. have a good one!
