This week has been great. This area is blooming. We are starting to teach some great investigators. One of them came to church yesterday and enjoyed all three hours. He is very serious about joining. He's Catholic, but he believes in the Apostasy and likes what his member friend has told him so far. His name is Lorenzo. Really nice.
We haven't had a lesson with Aaron and Jerry recently. Hopefully we see them again this week. We also ran into a man named Donald. We really connected with him. He said he is always open to learning about different religions. Hopefully he has the faith to be baptized into this church.
We were shocked to hear that more police officers had been shot. Most of sacrament meeting was talking about how charity replaces fear, and how all of us can be an example of charity. I still feel safe here. We are staying away from all demonstrations. President Hansen sent out an email telling us that he feel at peace about keeping us where we are, letting us work still. I have faith in his inspiration. He is very in tune with the Spirit always. That is something I really look up to him for.
We are also having lots of fun!. We have great members in our ward, and we are getting them involved in the work. I'm really excited about it!
