Dear Family and Friends, Our week was not very exciting for us, but it ended really well . We had very few appointments, so we were busy doing mostly finding the entire week. Very few people were willing to stop or listen, so we were not able to find any new investigators the entire week. We are trying to be effective and work on our finding skills, but so far, we have been unable to make any progress with getting new apps made out on the streets, and every time we do doors, people always threathen to call the police on us or come down personally and kick us out. Sunday was a great day for us though, because we had 3 random people coming into our meetings and then had the baptism of a man named Chris in the evening. Our main investigators are doing really well. We have been working with a couple for a few weeks now, and they are both ready to make out a baptismal date. Just yesterday, we met with the man, and he has now read through all of 1 and 2 Nephi, and he came to us with questions about what he had read and what he had learned. It was so wonderful! We told them to pray for a date before this next Tuesday, and we are shooting for the 29th of this month. Our other investigators are not quite as strong as those 2, and do not have the same level of interest in the church. Two of them are busy on Sundays with either family or their own church, and so they are hesitant to come to church or to be baptized. We had a good lesson with one of them, and the other seems like we might have to drop, which I always hate to do. We did not have very many other super exciting events this week, but it is really wierd to see that my brother is supposedly home from his mission. I am not sure if I believe it- I think that I will need to see some pictures as evidence for that before I will accept it. ;) Have a great week and I love you all! I know that this is the church of God, and I have received a personal witness of God that this work is lead by him. -- - Elder Eric Gibson Kirche Jesu Christi der Heiligen der Letzen Tage
