The Guidance of the Spirit

We found a great new investigator this week! The new investigator we met last week who was referred by a less-active member, as it turns out, is a former investigator who has already read the whole Book of Mormon and Pearl of Great Price. The new investigator, though, is actually someone referred by this person. We went to our appointment, and instead of teaching him he asked us to teach his friend, who, though she does not have Christian background, was extremely open to our message. She took a Book of Mormon and said she would study it, and we are going to meet with them again this week.

We had a couple instances of witnessing the guidance of the Spirit this week. After going to visit a potential investigator, who was not at work, we decided to do all we could to find someone on the way back to our house. We didn't have much time, but as we were passing Nambu Market, we looked in and saw someone putting away his things for the night. We decided, moments later, to go back and ask if he needed help. He said no, so we talked with a drunk man there too, who gave us the wrong phone number. Then, after leaving, we met a couple on the street, who stopped to talk to us. After just a little bit, we learned that he had visited the Temple Square visitors center, as well as Elder Horne's hometown in New Hampshire. We talked some more, and he actually asked if he could meet with us again. We gave him my planner so he could draw a map to our meeting place. We told him he could just draw it anywhere (which may have been a mistake, because this was the result...there goes Saturday)

While on exchanges with Elder Ku, we went door-to-door in an apartment complex. After finishing the first building without much success, we started to leave. We noticed on the third floor of one of the buildings, though, a banner advertising an English academy. We, again, didn't have much time, but we decided to go and knock on that last door. We went to the third floor, and he opened the door. That's actually pretty good progress in Korea, because people tend to shout and ask who we are rather than open the door. We talked and learned that he had lived in the Philippines, and that his English teacher there was a member of the church. Though he didn't set an appointment with us then to learn more, he accepted a Book of Mormon and said he's read it.

Have an incredible week!
