We had a really good week here in the Braddock Ward. We were able to
meet with a lot of the recent converts in the Ward, set up a lot of
appointments for this coming week, and taught a lesson to a really
cool George Mason student name Wahab. He's from Afghanistan. We taught
the plan of salvation to him and he believed all of it! Except for
Jesus being the Savior. The Muslim faith has something very similar to
the plan of salvation, it even has a spirit world and a few other very
close things to ours. We also had a little lesson with a guy named
Char lee. I taught him when I was in Burke but he wasn't really interested
in meeting all the time. He agreed after meeting with him to lessons 3
times a week and to come to church. So that was really good. We have a
really busy week coming up with a lot of appointments which is good
and surprising. YSA (young single adult) wards are typically a little slower but
we've seen a lot of good things going on. Not as much as Ashburn but still a lot.
So about the area. We cover over half the mission. And areas that
aren't even in our mission boundaries which is cool. There's a lot of
college campuses in our area that we try and street contact at. Some
these are Northern Virginia Community College, George Mason University,
and one more. We've gone a few times already and just tried to talk to
people. We cover Warren ton which is a really rural area in the mission
which is really cool.
This week we also went to our Ward for the first time because of he
blizzard. The ward is a little different I guess you could say. Well
maybe a lot different. I'm a little nervous to bring some of our
investigators but oh well. We met a guy this week at GMU who was a
referral from a girl he used to date in Los Angeles. She's at BYU
Idaho and told him that unless he joins they are breaking up. So he
went to GMU to play volleyball there and she stayed in Idaho. But we
talked with him and he seems like he could be interested. That was
cool. So you can pray for our investigators; Justin and Char lee especially.
Also.....This week at church there was this less active girl who kept
looking at me and smiling during the third hour. After the class she
went up to the sister missionaries who are also in the Ward and asked
"who's that guy in the blue tie"? The sister missionary told her I was
an Elder an probably should stay away......Darn hahah. I've been here
one week and I've already got girls flirting with me😄. Well make sure
you email me Dans letters. I didn't get your package that you sent.
Did you email it to the mission office or to my new address?
Love you all
