Everything is great here! Conference was good. In particular, I enjoyed Elder Ballard, Elder Bednar, President Uchtdorf, and Elder Oaks (Priesthood session.) Since Wandsworth Chapel is... well, on the other side of London, we decided it would be a much better idea to organize viewings at our chapel and at the homes of less-actives. This was fruitful. The Spirit was felt by all, in some way or another.
This week, the focus was progression. We spent the week doing things we felt would strengthen our investigators. Perhaps we could've done a bit more finding, but at the end of the day there isn't much point to finding if you don't progress those you find! :)
I've been making a concentrated effort to pray for and expect miracles. These miracles have taken the form of referrals! From investigators, from members, from mormon.org... it's awesome! If you ask everyone for referrals (including the Lord!) you'll receive, sometimes in ways you don't expect. I'm learning that you can think of all the techniques, tricks, and schemes possible to get referrals but at the end of the day the biggest things you can do are ask, serve, and WORK! If we do those things, the Lord will provide.
L. is one of the fascinating people I've ever taught. He's amazing. He finished 2 Nephi this week and when asked about how he liked 2 Nephi his comment was that he couldn't believe they ate raw meat but he researched it and found that when you cook meat, it loses a lot of vitamins so now he understands. He also commented on how he loved the Isaiah chapters. Wow. We also made him a CD of Churchy songs he can listen to on Sunday, because he asked for hymn recommendations when we taught Sabbath day.
