This week was an interesting one. It was pretty rough, filled with some disappointment, but we did have some good things happen still. A couple of our investigators dropped us this week and told us that they didn't want to be taught anymore... Shelia was a big blow to us. Shelia had committed to come to church a week ago Sunday but she never showed up. When we went to see why she didn't come, she went off about the lady who was excommunicated recently. Shelia is very passionate about women having equal opportunities to do things and that totally rubbed her the wrong way. My heart sunk when she told us that but I am trying to not let it bug me. Our other investigator, Terri, was sad too but not as sad as Shelia. We found that Terri responded really well to music and so we had decided to sing "Joseph Smith's First Prayer" and teach the Restoration. The lesson started out really well... until we started to use the pamphlet to teach the Restoration. We had left a pamphlet with Terri on a previous lesson and after we sang, Terri started to nit-pick everything in the pamphlet, wording and all. Terri wasn't willing to listen or learn about anything new. It's always sad when that happens but it happens on a mission, unfortunately.
On the plus side, we had our Community BBQ and it was a big success :) There were lots of people there and we managed to run out of food in an hour and a half, with 1 1/2 hours still to go. There were a lot of nice people there and we were able to talk with some people who seemed pretty interested :)
I think that's about it for the week. Can't believe that it's already the end of June! Time is flying!
Love you all!
