02/08/16 - Clinton, North Carolina

Alright. So this week was probably one of the longest weeks of the mission so far, yet I don't have very many things to share! We have a new investigator by the name of Will Smith! Haha so that's really good. Elder Foote got bitten by a dog and we had to make sure that it didn't have Rabies! It didn't, don't worry. One morning this week we went running and it was 27 degrees!! Whooo! We accidentally drove out of the mission this week on our way to Magnolia (a town very far from us)! We were driving and didn't recognize where we were and then we realized we were in Warsaw which is not only out of our area, but out of our mission! But alas, we are still here and have not been chastised! Yet. We are doing SOOO MUCH tracting lately. We are losing pretty much every investigator from our teaching pool and are having to start from scratch! We are having a hard time finding appointments to go to with members, but are doing our best keeping positive! We just pray that we will be able to find some people to teach! I miss teaching!! Yesterday in Sacrament meeting, we received a text from our only investigator with a baptismal date by the name of Colton and he said that "He wasn't interested in the Book of Mormon." and he doesn't want us to stop by again. Heart. Broken. But I do have a happy story to share! We were driving home from a less active and got the feeling to turn off onto some random road. We pulled over, parked the car, walked up to the first house on the street. Before we even got to the door a man opened it up and told us to come in! We didn't even tell him who we were! We initially assumed that they were wanting to bible bash or something, but we sat down and they just stared at us waiting for us to teach them!! It was so odd! We taught the Restoration and I definitely felt the Spirit there. They asked if we wanted sandwiches, water, so many things! They actually even gave us some homemade canned peaches on our way out! It was such an amazing experience and I hope we get to continue teaching them. Well, I believe that is all for this week. Lots and lots of hard work! I know we will start to see the fruits of our labors! Love y'all.

Teaching Will Smith the Gospel of Jesus Christ,
Elder Shearer
