3 more

This week is transfer week and I am really starting to see the people I know leave.  It's weird.  I'm starting to feel like an old fart.  But anyways things are going well here in Tallmadge.  Everything is staying the same.

The weather has gotten warmer.  That has been nice.
I had Taco burgers. They were interesting
The Groundhog saw his shadow. 6 more weeks

The awesome cool thing that happened this week is that we were able to see the correct direction that we should go.  We have felt that we need to work with the Young Single Adult branch a lot more.  Well we did just that this week.  We found 2 new investigators and we also found 2 awesome potentials that we will stop by.

The 2 new investigators we found are Nasser Rahimi and Nnamdi Anyaele (please don't put last names on the blog). Nasser is from Iran and Nnamdi is from Nigeria.  It was so cool to teach them.  Nasser was found on exchanges.  He answered his door and you could tell he wasn't all the way there (weed).  We did set a return appointment and he kept it.  Taught him the Restoration and gave him a Book of Mormon.  He said he would come to church. Nnamdi was a referral.  He was interested in a Bible and we were able to meet with him and teach him.  They both attend the University of Akron.

To continue furthering the work of the Branch we found a poster board in our garage that they used back in 2014.  We pulled it out and took it to Institute to have them help us with it.  They commented that the board reminded them of the Amish and how we would fool people into thinking that we were Amish.  So we scratched it and now they are helping us create a more hip board.

I've done some pondering on all the people I have talked to and where they are from.  I have taught or tried sharing the gospel with people from Guyana, China, Texas, South America, Bulgaria, West Virginia, Ohio, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Germany, Nigeria, and more.  A great scripture comes to mind.  It's 2 Nephi 26:33.

"For none of these iniquities come of the Lord; for he doeth that which is good among the children of men; and he doeth nothing save it be plain unto the children of men; and he inviteth them all to come unto him and partake of his goodness; and he denieth none that come unto him, black and white, bond and free, male and female; and he remembereth the heathen; and all are alike unto God, both Jew and Gentile." 2 Nephi 26:33
Have a great week!
