Well not a bad week for me and the good old Solomon. We had really great lessons and our teaching pool almost doubled because we now have the whole area to ourselves since Elder Vaiphei and Eames are leaving. We now have a grand total of 21 people that are ready to learn of the gospel and progress towards eternal salvation.
There is one amongst those 21 people that is very special to me and my companion. His name is Mohan, he lives just near to the Zone Leaders apartment and he was actually a street contact with the other Elders (Eames&Vaiphei). They gave us his number and we gave him a call asking us if we could meet with him at the church because he stays in an all boys hostel (dorm). We picked him up on our cycles and we showed him where church was so he would know where it was for future visits. We sat down with him and were just being cool, getting to know him, asking about his family, asking him questions that would open up any concerns that he would have and that we could address. He really wanted to know more about our church and we answered all the questions he had, he even wanted to serve a mission just like us.
He wanted to meet with us everyday so he can learn more about Jesus Christ and learn more English so he can get a very good job in the future. He has his Masters degree by the way...so he has done a lot of schooling. Our next visit with him we gave him the invitation to be baptized in the beginning of Feb. and he accepted.
On Sunday there was a mother and her son and daughter that have come to church twice now and was a referral from our branch president. I have never seen anyone in my life so wanting to be a part of the church. She is always talking about how happy she is when she comes to church and her son Nathan walked up to me and asked if I could baptize him. They are such an awesome family and a true testament to me that there are people out there who are ready to learn more of the gospel, you just have to have to spirit with you to find them.
I am losing more weight now that I have cut out rice and fast food! We are playing basketball every day and doing push-ups and P-90x! Y'all Take care nah!
