Kind of a crazy week!
We got lost on the bus system for an entire day this week. In two days we had...ONE lesson. It was kind of rough. We had a really good finish to the week and recovered pretty well, but the first few days of the week were definately a struggle. I'm getting so much better at bus contacting--people are even starting to contact US. Its a lot of fun. Being on foot, we meet SO many more people. And are getting in good exercise.
One of my favorite parts of missionary work is less active work. I LOVE it. We have been seeing one inactive return missionary who is always coming to us to set up "appointments," we never have to go to him. It's fun, we usually just end up going for a walk. We walked along the canal the other day, and it was a lot of fun. He is great, and he said himself that it is inevitable that he will be coming back to church in the future. We'll see how soon it is, but he knows it. Love it.
So, our Chinese investigator William scared us pretty bad this week. We had a couple of our investigators freak out a little and drop their baptismal date, so when William called and said he had something he needed to say to us, but it would be better face to face, we panicked. So, we set up an appointment with him at nine thirty in the morning--something we NEVER do, because we have studies all morning. We get there, all worked up and bracing ourselves for the worst...and he says "Who is the Messiah?" Whhhhewww. Yeah, he was just reading in the Book of Mormon, and didn't know who that was. We had a good lesson, talked about his baptism (which is THIS THURSDAY!!), and all was well.
This week was "Frosh" week, which I take it is the same as "Rush" so contacting was...rough. We surprisingly got several potentials, but we'll see what comes of it. We even got invited to a kegger. Sweeeet! Sorry this is short, but people are trying to leave to go downtown and my companion wants to leave and so I've got to wrap it up.
It's been a tough week. Good, but tough. Learning lots, being tested, and loving being a missionary. I love you all so so so much. YOU are what keeps me going every day. I love you, I'm thankful for each of you. Much love,
