Great Investigator

Well this week has been way too fun and very quick. We also got some good work down with one of our Investigators. We will do the spiritual first.

Scripture of the week is one I forgot to write down... sorry

So one man we are working with loves the Bible and thinks the Book of Mormon is alright. We decided to just read it with him for one of our lessons. We read the first 6(?) chapters of 1 Nephi, and by the end he was marking his BOM and sharing what he liked about the verses we read and about Nephi and Lehi's faith. We then invited him to a baptism this last Sunday. He said he would come. We showed up and he was already there. The Baptismal service was awesome. At one point he was crying and he was nodding his head like crazy for the talks on Baptism and the Holy Ghost. At one point a sister missionary got up to bear her testimony. she knew before hand that we were going to bring our investigator. For a large portion of her testimony she looked directly at him. He kept nodding his head, and would write down scriptures that were talked about in the testimonies and talks. After the service was done we took him on a church tour. We just showed him around the classrooms and chapel and what not. He really enjoyed it. It was obvious he felt the spirit strong. The best part came afterwards and when we got home. He sent us a text saying "thank you again for inviting me. It has given me a lot to think and pray about. see you soon." Ahhhhh Elder Jocelyn and I just screamed at each other. It was so awesome! We are super excited to see him on Thursday!

Thursday will also be a great day because we are going to the Temple! Everybody cant wait! This week is going to go by very fast because of it as well! Super exciting. 

Time for some funny stories. Elder Jocelyn has already typed them up so I am going to "abridge the records" that he has kept. Ill italicize what I add.

We had 3 funny stories happen this past week 2 of which were in the same place actually. The first one is we were walking down the road contacting at 8:45 the other night and there was this lady in a mini mart parking lot and she yelled to us "I LOVE YOU GUYS" and waved us over and we talked to her for a minute and she was just your typical crazy old lady on the streets of Tacoma. We said a prayer with her and right when we were done this guy comes running out of the mini mart and jumps into this car backed into a spot and this Asian man comes running out screaming "STOP THEM" and Elder Lund and I are in the middle of the dip in the sidewalk to enter/exit the parking lot and the car comes blazing at us and naturally we jump out of the way because they would have hit us. And I Elder Lund do say that I didn't move but the car almost hit me, I could have punched the car it was that close.  After the car pulled out the old lady starts chanting "AUS****"(The license plate number) over and over and follows the Asian man into the store to call the cops. I will never forget that license plate number. Also the other stories will be told at a less important time. But ask of George and zombies.

Anyways Love you all!

Elder Lund
