This week was a week! I don't know how else to describe it lol. We took a trip out to Brampton for Elder Massey to go to the doctors before he goes home so we were in the car for a long time on Tuesday. The Vegas did feed us and I love that family so much so that was super cool. Other than that it was the usual street contacting, tracting, and grind.
To the title of my email. On Wednesday we had a day of grinding and we were getting in a dinner hour when we got a message. A guy who we met on the street way back messaged us asking us if we were coming to the Bible study he does with some friends. If we back up a couple of weeks we stopped him and were asking about where the Christians lived on campus and he told us about this Bible study he does and I invited myself and got his Facebook. Weeks go by and he doesn't go one week, doesn't respond the next week and we eventually forget about it because we think he's not interested. We were really surprised when he texted us so we hustled down to the Bible study. There were 8 YSA guys in the room, all Christian, all wondering who the well-dressed dudes were... it's showtime. We sat down and wanted to blend in so we just kinda got into it. They were studying Micah and to be honest I haven't been in Micah that much lol. I thought showtime was gonna be a no go but in the verses, it talked about the Gathering of Israel, so it's showtime again. The leader guy asks a discussion question and no one speaks so I'm prompted and I raise my hand and say, "So where did all the people of these tribes go?" They had never thought about that and one "smart" guy just talked about Judah and the Jews and I asked where did like Gad, and Emphram and all the boys go. They had no answer so they asked us and it turned into a super loving and bold conversation and then we all prayed for each other in a circle. They then asked us a ton about missions and invited us back and we were hyped!! Super big miracle, many prayers were said, milk was drunk, we were super happy. Welp, on Sunday we got a message from the leader guy that said we shouldn't come back because he doesn't agree with our doctrine and he doesn't want discussion. Needless to say, we did not have a good sacrament meeting lol. But what can you do, maybe one of them will have a change of heart.
Love you guys, talk next week. Stay in them scriptures!
What's up everyone I hope you all had a good week!
This week was pretty solid, after P-day we drove down to my old grounds Scarborough to stay the night before transfers. It was so fun to see the Borough Boys and catch up. That next morning I dropped Elder Mohi off at the Toronto Stake Center and said goodbye to him and then we took Gardiner Road, it's the highway that cuts straight through the city so if you want to check it on Google Maps you'll see how cool it is, to the Brampton Stake Center. We caught up with some other mission guys and I met my new comp Elder Massey. He's such a cool guy, he's from New Delhi, the biggest city in India, and he's been on his mission for like 23 months so this will be his last area we think. He lived by the American Embassy so he hung out with a bunch of Americans so we like a bunch of the same stuff.
This week we tried to work with a lot of less active people. We got a list from our ward mission leader of all the less actives and all it's turned into is us cleaning up the branch list. It's alright though it'll be good to help the branch. We did have 2 at church! That is a really big deal, I've never had that many at church on my mission. One woman and her daughter came and they seemed to enjoy it but we ask about how they feel and they just miss the Spirit I guess. I don't know what the deal is but we'll keep working. We also had a guy we've been teaching come to the YSA. He was doing good and even participated in the Sunday School a little bit. Me and Elder Massey we're laughing because he wouldn't take a Book of Mormon when we met but he wanted to get one after Sunday School so something changed haha.
I don't have any crazy spiritual thoughts this week but I just want to testify of our modern day prophet and the apostles. It's so cool to have them on this earth being special witnesses of Jesus Christ. I know they're inspired men and that they know what they're talking about when they teach us. They definitely are not perfect people because no one is, but they are Jesus Christ's Apostles. I love you guys I'll talk to you all next week!
