May 11,2015This week was SUPER fantastic!!!! (As Sister Gleason would say:) Well of course I got to skype you guys which was amazing but last night after skype we had dinner and a lesson with the Topleys AND Brother Topley has agreed to be baptized on May 30th!!!! Can you believe it?? I couldn't be more happy right now! And as a mission we are trying to reach the goal of 50 people on date per week so I am happy that we were able to contribute to that goal this week! You could also tell how excited Sister Topley was as well!! So it was fun!
Then we had a few cool experiences with spur of the moment things we did because we had some extra time. So Saturday we were out in Crossfield and we decided to try and stop by a few less actives. So we stopped by one house and it turned out that the family was gone on vacation for a few months but that there was a guy house sitting. We got to talk to him a little bit and he said he has met with may sets of missionaries before and he has traveled a lot! I don't think it's just a coincidence that missionaries keep finding him every where he goes haha:) But maybe there is some potential there.
Then Sister Gleason and I decided to take a walk one night because it wasn't quite yet and there is a really nice walking path behind our house where a lot of people ride bikes and walk their dogs (everyone has dogs here!). And we met this guy that we ended up giving a short lesson of the Plan of Salvation with so that was pretty cool! We gave him our number but we do't know where he lives so it is hard to follow up with him but it was cool to just teach someone and that someone was actually willing to listen to us. So Sister Gleason and I might end up going for more walks at night!
So I would say it has been a very successful week!! We have a lot of appointments set up for this as well so we will stay busy!! I am loving the missionary life!!!!:) Blessings do come when you keep trying your hardest!!
