We had two first discussions today. The first one they didn’t really listen to us but were walking around the whole time. This one was a man and his wife and some of their family.
Our second discussion was a lot better we taught a brother that we had tracted the other day. With him were his daughter and niece. They all listened really well and were involved with the discussion. His daughter is 10 and his niece is 16. They were both really attentive as well.
We made something called an “IBC” today. It stands for Investigator Baptismal Checklist. W, as a zone, will give it to new committeds to help them progress.
Tonight at our visit we had with Nany Jose we had a good conversation about doctrine. She has done really well in our challenge to her to read the Book of Mormon. In 3 days she’s read to Jacob! She had a question about Joseph the son of Lehi and what happened to him. We explained about some lost books and I explained to her about the 116 lost pages of Joseph and Martin. I think that she’s beginning to accept me as a missionary.
After it was raining really really hard. We had no umbrellas and the roads were 4-5 inches deep in water. We had to walk back in the rain and we were totally soaked when we got back. I got some good photos!
