1-23-17 "The Hammer"

January 23, 2017

Hello from the rainy Exeter, California!!!

We had a pretty good week this week. It's been raining almost everyday this week! But does that stop the Exeter Elders? NO!!!!!

We found a new investigator named Delvon Blunson this week. When we first met him he was with his buddy named J-Peg AKA The Hammer walking on the sidewalk. The Hammer has lots of interesting views about the Bible and such was going on about a 10-15 minute monologue while it was raining on all of us! After a while The hammer said something about finding out the truth and how if you think something is true then lay it out on the table cause it's an option!!! At this point I had 2 copies of The Book of Mormon in my hand and I whipped them up and said, "Well that's exactly what we're doing! We're out here proclaiming the truth and that it's in this book and we want to give you both a copy so you can find out it's true for yourselves!!" J-Peg took the book and said he had to go. Afterwards we kept talking with Delvon and ended up teaching a really quick review of the Restoration! And 2 days later we invited him to be baptized on March 18th!! He said yes!!!

We are also going to be having a miracle baptism!! An eternigator named April has committed to be baptized on the 31st!!! We are very excited that she is finally making the decision to be baptized!

We also had a former investigator from a couple years ago randomly show up at church with her 3 kids and stayed the entire time! She's already been previously fellow shipped by the members and they love her. We are going to see her on Tuesday. Based off of her teaching record from the past she was very solid, but a separation between her and her ex-husband is what dropped them off the board for a while. We are excited to see where this goes though! 

That's about all for this week though!! Love you all!!
