2 Investigators

This has been a great week! We have been focusing more accomplishing our weekly goals and making them happen. On during Saturday's daily planning session, we realized that we had not found a single new investigator all week. So we were determined to find the 2 that we had set as a goal. So on Sunday, after church, we were going to find an investigator who had moved, but he only gave us a bad description of where he was moving too. So, we park our car in an empty parking lot in the middle of the hood, and as soon as we got out, this guy comes out of his house and yells, "Are you a Jehovah Witness?" Sister Scott yelled, "No" and tried to walk away, but I know that when people ask us that, it always end up with us either teaching them a lesson, or at least us giving them a pamphlet or Book of Mormon. So, we walked over there and told them that we were with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and were NOT Jehovah Witnesses. Then there was this drunk neighbor who came out and sat on the bed of his truck and talked to us (he ended up being the cousin of the investigator we were looking for) and then there was a mini van full of other neighbors and as soon as we talked about prophets, a woman from the van tried to anti us and it was weird. But, we did get to talk to A and made a return appointment. He seems like a nice humble guy who really wants to learn. 

As for the 2nd investigator, we went tracting down an inspired street, and at first it looked like it was probably a short street full of abandoned houses, but as we got past the curve in the street, we found another 2 houses, and meet R. At first he thought that we were crazy for going all the way down his street and made comments on how white we are. But, we did talk about the gospel and got a return appointment. So, that was exciting!

We got in contact with a less-active member of the church, and she invited us to help out with a new charity that she started. So on Friday, we spend a few hours feeding the homeless and elderly Thanksgiving dinner. It was great. Since she had so much family, we just greeted people at the door and all of the people were super surprised when we held the door open for them. It was a lot of fun!

Also, my Sister Amanda is coming home this week on Thanksgiving day!! If you see her, give her a BIG hug for me!! There is so much to be thankful for!!! 

I hope that everyone has a great Thanksgiving and eats a lot of delicious food! I love y'all!!
