Family and Friends,
Hello from Tirana! I would like to give you an investigator update.
We have been focusing on the quality of our encounters with our investigators. We have 2 investigators with whom we are working. We have Suleman. He is a professor of political science and conflict solutions. He is a father of 3 children. He believes the Church to be true and is ready to be baptized.
The second investigator upon whom we are focusing is a YSA-aged man named Ledi. We have been bringing him to YSA activities and getting him acquainted with other people his age. There are not many male YSA priesthood holders in 3rd Ward. Elder Richards has a great way with the 16-25 male group. He is blessed with a gift in connecting with them in a way that I just don't have. I guess the Lord doesn't give us all the same blessings.
We also have been focusing on the non-member fathers of families here. There are several families in the ward where all members of the family excepting the fathers are members. We feel that these fathers would be excellent priesthood supports for their families and for the ward. We are working in particular with one father, he has two grown sons who served missions and his wife is the Relief Society President in our ward. We are teaching the Doctrine of Baptism in each lesson as invited to do by our Zone Leaders.
We had a service opportunity of chopping wood and we cleaned our ears the natural way this week but I am sure that we will have some great Halloween stories to share next week.
