I have not been so busy since eras back! So, life being a zone leader is rather exciting, more forms, more verifications to send, and more work! But, I do love it so! And so you know, I only have 14 missionaries in our zone, including ourselves. Not too bad, but there are a few in there that really need help!
So, for this week, for those who know missionary work, we had a contacting week. By that, I mean everyday was spent knocking on doors and looking for references! What work! But we also were able to get some fruits by the end of it! We found a few new investigators, and one of them has a baptismal date for the 16th. Her name is Jobi, she´s from the coast, used to live here, and attended church 2 years ago because her sister is a member. SO WE ARE WAY EXCITED!
As for other tidbits, Elder Bloxham and I are doing wonderfully as a companionship! Since the MTC, we have barely seen each other due to all the sectors we´ve been in, but now we are tearing it up! LITERALLY. Yesterday, for fun, we were running on a skinny curb and Elder Bloxham slipped, FLEW off to the side, and landed in a Barb Wire Fence! OW! He was mostly alright, and got a few punctures from the menacing spikes (shown in the photos attached), but he´s fine now.
And for a nice spiritual moment, we were contacting doors on Friday, and were a bit down because it seemed no one wanted to listen to us at the moment, and those who did want to listen didn´t want to accept our message, and we eventually got to a black metal door, knocked on it, and heard from inside an old lady asking who we were. We promptly said we were missionaries, but after a few sentences, it seemed she wasn´t interested either, and didn´t even want to open the door. And then! Head rested on door, a bit humble, I felt that it would be good to tell her we were sent there by Christ to bring her a message. So, I did. Then, there was a long, silent pause. Did I say something wrong? Then the door sprung open, and there she was! We began to speak with her, and ended up having a great lesson and even give her a book of Mormon. How about that! Just from that small impression, we had a new investigator! Listen to the spirit!
So I´ll tell you next week how it goes, but it will be great! Until then, Elder Sanders Out!
