Ups and Downs

This past week was a good one! It had it's ups and downs as you can tell by the title. So I guess I'll start with the downs, which are only small and few. A lot of our appointments fell through this week, like, almost every day we had appointments falling through, and none of our investigators came to church but... the ups! So we were able to find a new investigator this week, she is a former investigator from Thailand. She has a few concerns but she's definitely worth working with and trying to help. And although no investigators came to church, we did have some less actives come! It made us pretty happy to see them, especially one of them who has been having trouble with drinking, but she came to church and hasn't drunken at all for about a whole week! Physically, mentally, and spiritually, there was a big change in her, and it was really uplifting to witness that!

I also ran into another guy while door knocking who was talking to us about his studies as a Christian. I don't think his first language was English, and he was a bit old, so it was hard to understand him, but I learned a new word, "disconcernment"! I think it's supposed to be discernment but apparently he has this special power of disconcernment and "could read my mind if he wanted to".

Other than that, it's been the usual week. Door knocking, eating KFC and doing a bit of teaching here and there.

Thanks everyone for your love and support! Hope you all have a wonderful week!
