I hope everyone's week has been going well!
This week was pretty ordinary, BUT it's the last week of the transfer. Pretty crazy to think that two months have already passed in this area, I'm not sure if I'll stay or go, but I look forward to the adventure of change calls!
That being said, we bumped into a former investigator in the street the other day and guess what? He came to church!!! He's very interesting... has a lot of theories about love and equality and science, but it's a fun experience every time we teach him. We hope he'll continue to progress and learn more about the gospel!
Sadly, our beloved investigator E is having issues with her parents giving her permission to be baptized. We are continuing to pray for her, but as of this moment it seems like she will have to wait until she is 18 until she can finally be baptized. Pray for her please!
Funny story of the week: We'd been teaching a man from Syria for a couple weeks, and every single lesson would always end up with him talking about how he wanted to find a wife in Finland. It didn't help that he spoke neither English or Finnish very well, and that we communicated mainly through online translation...
Anyway, Sisar Dowd and I are walking down the main road where all the buses get off and we see our Syrian friend on the street, talking on the phone. After he hangs up, we go over and say hi and he simply tells us "Now I have wife, she is in Arabia." Before we get the chance to say anything else he waves us off and walks away. And then Sisar Dowd whispers to me, "Well. can we teach you the gospel now??" haha I love people.
