Week 71: Biking Again - Also, GenConf this week!

Monday, March 27, 2017


3rd time is the charm. We had set up an appointment with a former investigator, Yonnie two Tuesdays ago, but we had an apartment inspection we forgot about, so we had to cancel that appointment. Then we were going to meet on the next Friday, but he had to cancel, then we finally met on last Tuesday. Haha. 

We met at a library and we looked around the 1st floor. Turns out he was at the computer, but we didn't know what he looks like haha. Thank goodness for cell phones.

Anyway, he has great potential and really wants to know God. So, it will be fun to teach him.

Oh and we texted a bunch of people who didn't have much info. One of them was put into Area Book because her name had only been on the phone. She responded and she wants to meet and we got her address. Yay! Haha.
I finally met Gio and Roy. They are a family who are recent converts. They have been having some difficulties and haven't been at church all year!

Also, we only have the car from Tuesday through Thursday, so we went biking on Friday... elder Mateski got a helmet from Bishop the night before because we had dinner with him and mentioned how we only had one helmet. Haha. So, he is lending the helmet to us. 

Anyway, we had two appointments we had to bike to and the other two we had rides to. Well... Elder Mateski crashed! Into a sign. Lol. I was ahead and didn't actually see it. When I looked behind me I just see him lying in the ground haha. He wasn't injured, just exhausted. It was his first time biking and he doesn't want to do it anymore, but he has changed his mind a few times. But, then we walked the rest of the way and had to cancel with the less active. But, we did meet with Jeremy (even though we were super late!) and he loves the Book of Mormon already and wants us to come back and teach him and his cousin. (His cousin got kicked out because he was violating the Word of Wisdom and the mom doesn't like that). 

Also... we might not be teaching Paul very soon... but, hopefully he will be allowed to be baptized when he can sign his own legal documents in about 2 years.

Oh and we found a dead person (died in 2014) in our Area Book listed in the member director as a less active... It was a glitch! He wasn't on the LDS Tools. The interesting part is that missionaries found him dead because we read the report. Crazy! They just walk in and see him. 

Anyway, I figured out how to fix the glitch and he is not on the visible records anymore.

Anyway, I say anyway a lot. Hahaha. I know the Book of Mormon is true. It is awesome! Also Nephi is great and thank goodness for him and his brother, Jacob. Because of them, we have the greatest commentary on Isaiah by prophets who knew the way of prophesying of Isaiah and actually understood it. Wow! And how great are the words of Isaiah! If you didn't realize, I just finished reading the book of Isaiah. We live in exciting times...! In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

P.S. I'm excited for General Conference this weekend! You can see it on LDS.org at 10 a.m. - 12 p.m., and 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Love,
Elder Kloosterboer
