Good Week!

We had a good week this last week. Our district set a goal to get 9 people to church this last Sunday which was a large stretch because the week before we had only gotten one. We all worked really hard for it and in the end we hit exactly 9. Then just last night while I was on exchanges in another area. Someone that we had spoke to on the street the day before accepted a baptismal date for July 12th. Her name was Aleshya and she had a good friend that had just died 3 months before. The day before we spoke to her she had been praying to know what happens after we die. We talked to her on the street and told her about the spirit world and baptisms for the dead. When they taught her yesterday she said it was an amazing answer to her prayers. A real miracle for us as we have found many new investigators but have been having trouble finding those that will keep daily contact. We just keep working and we are being consistently blessed in our area. We still have a lot of faith in our investigator pool with quite a few people that can still be baptized this transfer. I just talked to one of my recent converts, Monica Nolan, from Etobicoke. Apparently without me knowing she had planned my entire last Wednesday to be at her house with some other missionaries eating Guyanese food... shes a really nice lady I will try to convince her to cook some curry and roti. She was excited to hear that she could meet the family as well. Once again everything is going really well I honestly don't even know what to write anymore and I am just trying to enjoy every minute of the next 3 weeks or so.
