Through prayer and work, we found more investigators, a 3-generation family, instead of 2 as planned; Simon read the Book of Mormon and found it good!

May 23 to 28: Tuesday to Sunday
We met Sister Leilani with an 8-month old baby and non-LDS partner. She said she wanted to learn more and would stop smoking. Miracle. The couple said that they wanted to become better parents for their baby by having Christ in the center of their lives and asked us to visit them weekly. Last two appointments, Leilani wasn't home but this time, she was ready.
We also followed up a bunch of former investigators within 2 km radius and walked the whole day. We planned to have 2 new investigators but it was almost 6pm and found no one yet. Then we decided to try one more new contact who did not speak much English. We found him with his daughter and family and shared with them the Plan of Salvation. Amit the husband said that they only believe in karma and reincarnation, he wanted to learn more so we set another appointment with them. Instead of two, we found a 3-generation family - the grandparents and a family with 2 young children! It is really powerful to pray specifically, God gave us more than we asked for.
We also met Simon (from Sudan) in the library whom we had spoken at the stoplights crossing the street. We shared about Restoration and he took notes. He said that when he is ready, he would let us meet his family. The next day, he called us to tell us that he read the BOM, that it was good and he was excited to meet with us again.
I remembered calling Sam, a contact I found in our phone. When we called, he gave us his address which I recorded in my planner. When we were in the area, I remembered #2 Aubin Crt and so we knocked on this address. Next minute, two dogs came running. I thought the owner let them free to scare us (later we saw a sign that the owner is Orthodox and other religions are not welcome). We asked him if a "Sam" lived there, he said 'no', and we said our apologies and left. When I checked my planner, it said #5 and not #2..ooppss. However, I do believe that there is a purpose for everything and scaring my companion is not one of them.
President Vidmar ran out of choco milk so he made me some Nesquik and fresh milk..haha
