Standard

Ouch! 🙂 Wow no one wrote me this week. If I had at least one person
write i would be ok but not getting one?! That is like a sting to the
heart. Alright enough of the woe is me 🙂 this week has been a good
week. We have had some set backs but we also have had some great
progress. We got three new appointments yesterday alone with potential
investigators to teach ( not investigators yet). Most of these people
we just want to build a relationship with. Most of them have had
lessons before but for some reason or another they stopped. One lady
doesn’t like the atmosphere of church at all. she has had some bad
experiences with churches growing up so she is very resistant. Her mom
is a recent convert and her son loves church and the missionaries and
he wants to get baptized but she won’t let him. She feels if he gets
baptized she will be alone. So we are trying to build a relationship
with her to show that our church is different. So she agreed to go eat
with us but just as friends. I think if we continue to build a
relationship with her and just be an example her heart will be
softened. And then we have Angela. This girl is straight up crazy. We
haven’t met her yet and she has already caused so much drama but we
are enduring it and trying to be friends so she can come to feel safe.
She doesn’t trust any one. We have had lots of phone calls with her
trying to befriend her and trying to meet up because a face to face
relationship so better then a phone conversation. She has had a hard
life. She has taken the lessons before and even had a baptismal date.
She is from the Phillipeans  and speaks English really well. Her
family called her and told her they needed money and so she started
prostituting herself and that’s how we lost her. And since she has had
a hard hard life and is wanting more peace in her life again. So we
are going to take it very very slow with her to build her trust and
hopefully her faith along with it. We were able to meet two less
active member who are sisters and they never lost there testimony they
just have a hard time coming to church because of busy schedules. One
sister has thought of going on a mission. It’s has been fun to work
with them to see them still have that testimony. It’s bee great. We
have a lesson with a lady named Naomi who wants to read the BOM in
English. I thing she will be golden but the thing with her is her
husband. But I’m not to worries about it all. I know God will provide
a way. We just have to help her build her faith as well. We have had
not been able to meet with any of out actual investigators this week.
Kondo San was suppose to come to church yesterday but didn’t show up.
We hope that she continues to progress. And then we haven’t been able
to meet with Fundi and Kazadi either. They have been to busy and we
wont be able to se them for another two weeks because they are going
to Kongo. Well that is the update for this week. I love you all! I’m
so grateful for this gospel and to be apart of the work to serve God
on this full time mission. I know the church is true. I know that
Heavenly Father and Jesus lives and he has a plan for us. I hope you
all continue your search for the end because it doesn’t end. We only
continue to grow beyond our wildest dreams. I pray for you all. Love
you so much! Thank you for your support and love.

Love sister Brox
