WEEK 80 Salama Dahole! - Cyclone - Elder Ellis knowledge

Yes there was a cyclone this week! Crazy amounts of rain and really high winds. Luckily no one was hurt and nothing was broken. So that hindered the work on Tuesday night and Wednesday due to people calling us and telling us not to come haha. The work picked up after that. Here are a couple of highlights from the week!

So from our new knowledge from Elder Ellis we went out on Tuesday to find some new solid investigators. The best time of the day was with this one family we have been talking to for a while. We taught them about the Gospel and talked about faith. Then we stressed the importance of coming to church. They said they would come to church this next week. He went on telling us he wants the best for his kids and his wife. He told us that all of the churches they have been to haven't been too good for them. We told him that he would find the right one next Sunday... then we testified to them of the truthfulness of the message and we ended up reviewing the restoration with them. Awesome time! 

Sadly our star investigators couldn't learn this week due to the rain on Tuesday and there was a little accident at an activity on Saturday and they didn't come to church. We were worried for them but Elder Tshetu said that if they see the church is true then it won't be a problem. So we are praying for them!

Then we set a baptismal date for Kiky, Odette, Clara, and her daughter. They came to church and Clara even brought her husband, who has been having problems lately. We went and taught them and they said ok let's set a date! They almost put it for this Saturday but due to the dads work schedule, they set it for April 15, a week after the transfer ends. Then we proceeded to teach Clara's husband  as he hasn't really been in the picture for a while and it was basically Clara and the family teaching him, it was awesome! 

So that's the update on those guys. This week we went knocking and finding, and we found some awesome new people. We have some great follow up times this week, some splits, and a zone conference to look forward to. We prayed hard this last week to find new families to teach and we found! Elder Ellis said it many times and now we find ourselves saying it a lot, that God is a God of miracles.
Have a great week errrbody! 
Elder Bowen
