This week we had a couple fun experiences contacting. We found this place that was SUPER MACET (traffic) and so we won't go there again :) Then we went the opposite way on another afternoon which went kind of a long the coast, so I saw the ocean! YAY! There was also this area that had some places obviously for rich people. We also discovered another cool mall that is way fancy and that will be another fun P-day thing.
We got called by Elder Jensen who is the senior office couple missionaries saying that we have to move apartments! But just one floor down haha. So that's pretty much what we did all morning. We cleaned the new apartment, and then later we have to move all of our stuff into the apartment. So that is our exciting P-day activity haha.
This week we also had Zone Conferences. We had interviews and a training with Sister Rowley on Wednesday and then we had Zone Conference on Saturday. It's not as weird being at Zone Conference because I see President at least once a week here at the Mission Office and the Senior Couples too. We talked about following the spirit and talking with everyone. It was a good Zone Conference, and it helped me want to be more brave when talking to people. After Zone Conference we had about 3 hours before English class to go contacting, so we decided to just ride the Busway wherever we felt needed to go. So we got off at the main busway close to where the church is and sat at the stop on a couple of benches for a while. Sister Xiao had a prompting to talk to a man who had been kind of staring at us for a few minutes. But that meant that she had to awkwardly get up from the bench we were sitting on, sit right in between 2 men, and then find an excuse to start talking with them. After a couple of minutes she stood up and sat right next to them, and then the guy immediately asked her if what she was carrying was a Kitab Mormon. He had met with the Elders before but he doesn't have a phone so he lost contact with them. It was cool that she was able to meet with him and get his address. He also had given away a few Books of Mormon to his friends, so she wrote down those names for the Elders to ask him about. Also during that, on the bench I was sitting on, where Sister Xiao was sitting a cute young girl sat by me and she had quite a few questions and we are hoping we can meet with her this coming Sunday. So we just have to follow the spirit and be willing to open our mouths and then Heavenly Father will put people in our paths.
We also met with those people that we contacted in the Supermarket last week and they are now new investigators. We are slowly getting to know the ward and finding ways to meet new people. As we just work every day we will be blessed with satisfaction in our work and we will be happy doing it.
That's all there is for this week,
Love you so much!
Love, Sister Davis
