The week has been so great, I've loved it! This week we've been really focusing on OYMs--open your mouth! So just talking to everyone and sharing a little about the gospel! And inviting them to learn more. Not everyone was too interested, yet, of course, but we have seen some miracles come from it. One man, R-- I--, I actually met a couple weeks ago with Sister Gaono and had given him a pamphlet. He's a put-put driver, and we met him when were on the way to a lesson. In MCM, we asked the members if anyone knew him and they all said he was a great man and very friendly. We met him again this week, and he said he had read the pamplet and really liked it! So on wednesday we went to teach him and his family. We knew the general area of where he lived, and asked a bunch of people till we finally found it. Haha. He was so surprised to see us! He let us come in though and was super friendly again. Haha his wife wasn't so excited about it, and said to him "oh you have two religions now?". haha. She listened though :). We taught them the message of the restoration, and he was really interested! He was taking notes and asking questions, and it was great :). We're pretty excited about him. Hopefully when we go back they'll all be more open to the gospel. Pray for them :). We definitely are! This week, we were talking to another put-put driver. We asked him what his name was and were surprised to find out that it was R--'s father! He was just as friendly, and lives right next to R--. We're going to try to visit him and his wife this week :).Another family we met from OYMs is the A-- family. We were trying to visit a less active family, the M-- family, but the mom wasn't home. again. So we talked to their neighbors, and she was so interested! She had seen the missionaries come visit the M--'s, but they had never talked too much to her about the gospel. So we went back to teach her, and only the mom was home. And now....she has a baptismal date!! The spirit was so strong in the lesson, and she really wants her family to be blessed. We are so excited about them! Hopefully the whole family can be there next time.
Love, Sister Mortensen
