Sorry this will be a shorter email today, but I would like to let all of you know of the love and appreciation I have for my siblings. I am so grateful for Emma and Sarah serving faithful missions. For Elders it is a commandment from The Lord to serve a mission, but Sisters truly sacrifice so much to go on missions and always give twice as much as Elders can! I am so grateful for them and their service. I love you Mary, Harrison, Benjamin and Anna! Thank you for your prayers and loving hearts. And of course my loving father and mother who have raised us in righteousness. My love for my family is one of the reasons I am here on my mission! I want others to know how the gospel can bless their family.
Well, from our potential investigators last week, we found two new investigators this week. The young student turned us way, and the girl fom Macedonia was ignoring us, but the man from Brazil (who is actually from Portugal) became a new investigator! along with another student that we met, Raja, from India! So, we lost some and we gained some!
Shanny, our investigator who was going to be baptized on the 25th hasn't received an answer to know if the Book of mormon is true, so the date has fallen out and we haven't been able to set a new date with her yet. Plus, we have a lot to teach her, and she is always very busy. This week we met with her once and talked about how she can know that the Book of Mormon is true. It is hard because we have had to meet in a cafe due to the lack of being able to get a member to the appointment.
We had an awesome street display on Saturday as well! We gave out 19 Books of Mormon, and got 3 addresses and one phone number! 14 german, 2 english, 1 arabic, 1 turkish, and 1 russian!!! We brought Khalil, our recent convert a long, and he was amazing! He can speak Arabic, Turkish, Curdish, and English. But I taught him how to say "Kennen Sie das Buch Mormon" in german so he could talk with more people. He was fearless! And he also has the gift of discernment. He would stand and look out into the crowd of people and then come tell me that we need to go and talk to someone. He came up to me and told me we needed to talk to a young man who was standing off in the distance talking to some friends. So, we went and talked with him and he was very interested in our message, we talked to him about the restoration and gave him a book of mormon. Khalil is legit!
I love you all!
