hooray for people to share the Gospel with

 I will report on our investigators!


He is so awesome! He is still meeting with us which is a miracle in itself! He keeps reading out the book of mormon and is finding the stories interesting. We have been teaching alot about prayer lately and trying to get him to pray about the Book. Unforuanately he leaves on vacation in the next couple weeks but hopfully we can meet with him when he gets back. We really struggle with staying on topic when we teach him. He has really deep questions and I think we need to just stick to the basics! and thanks for the scriptures dad, Ill use them next lesson!

Fam Ancea:

They are the Romanians that we met with a few weeks ago. The husband just got back from vaca, but his wife is still there. We set up an appointment to go back and teach about the Book of Mormon!

Janic and Hagop:

Oh man, these are my favorite!!!!! Janic is a less active member who live with his grandparents. His grandparents are active but he doesnt come. He is 18 years old and he has a friend who is 18! Janic is Austrian (and also black! his mom married an african! we play basketball with him all the time!) and Hagop is from Afganistan but has lived here for basically his whole life. We go over to their house every friday to do service and Janic and Hagop are there to help us. After service this last week they invited us to go play soccer in the park! We have really built an awesome relationship with both of them. We are going over for dinner on wednesday and hopefully we can ask Hagop if we can share with him why we are here. He has asked lots of questions about missionary work which is AWESOME!!!!! My hope for the whole thing is that Janic can help us teach Hagop, become re-activatied and then baptize his friend!!!! So that really the most excitement we have with our investigators!!!!

Schwester Grabmayer:

She is a less active lady that we have been visiting for the last month or so and guess who came to church yesterday???????????? Schwester Grabmayer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was really good to see her and all of the members were really glad to have her back! Hopefully she comes again next week!

and finally.... Omar:

So Omar is kind of a split investigator between all of the elders here in Bruck. We (as in both companionships) meet with him EVERYDAY! He is a referral from Antonios (the Egyptian guy). I was able to teach him this last week and it was the coolest lesson ever. We checked in on his reading and answered his questions. Then he said something super cool. He said that when he was reading he fealt warmth and calmness in his heart. He didnt really know how to describe it to us. Good thing we knew exactly what he was talking about!!!! The HOLY GHOST!!!! I then testified to him that what he was feeling was the Holy Ghost and that it was testifying of truth. He then said that he knew the book was true and now he has a baptismal date!!!! It was a really powerfull moment. Then it gets better! We then watched "finding faith in Christ" the film about his life. After the film he told us that his heart was racing! Elder Badders (the new missionary who was teaching with me) fealt his chest and told me that is was beating super fast! Omar then asked to take a little break so he could compose himself!! We then taught about the devinity of christ and how powerfel the atonement is. It was such a spiritual experience! So yeah, he is technically the other elders Investigator so it wont be my first real baptism but I have helped him come closer to Christ so that counts for something right?!!?

Picked a flower just for his mom

He will play just about anything
