thursday we went to find this less active named sister diana. finding her house was seriously a maze.... as we walked up and down the same street we noticed these two guys, a younger guy and an older guy, sitting on a bench in front of their house. they were kind of laughing at us. we thought about going to ask them directions, but decided not to, then we decided that we might as well. so we walked over and they were like "what are you guys doing???" they thought we were crazy. so we explained who we were and starting sharing our message with them. the old guy stood up and walked away, but the younger guy, gregorio, listened. i asked him what he was doing on sunday evening, and then invited him to come to general conference. he said he would like to. we exchanged phone numbers, and then we said a prayer with him. wow. (more on this later!)
friday we ran around looking for another less active that we never found, but during our adventures, i talked to a lady on the subway from romania. i was sitting next to her and i wanted to talk to her but she was looking away from me pointedly. the no 1 sign that somone thinks they arent interested. so i did what any self respecting woman would do and i complemented her shoes :) that got her going! hahaha she said she had had them for 3 years and i was like no way!! you cant tell at all!! haha anyway she asked me why i was here and i told her my testimony about the restoration. then she said that her husband had passed away not too long ago. she totally opened up! i told her that she must have lots of questions like where is he? will i see him again? is he happy? and i gave her a passalong card and she devoured it. (it has all those questions on it ;) ) and then we exchanged phone numbers and i got off. i called her yesterday and we have the appointment for tomorrow :) :) :) :)!!! she is so awesome. luisa.
saturday was the first day of general conference, but that morning we went to find a less active sister that has been recommended to us by the bishop. i called the bishop and he told me that she has 3 children, two daughters and a son. the two daughters both have illegitamate children, and one of their boysfriends is a drug dealer. basically its a pretty bad situation, but anyway, we can deal with anything.
