Elder Sean~November 24, 2008...lessons better than snow!

So Owen and I journeyed out to inowroclaw on saturday and met with Zbyszek. He's finished the book of mormon and knows its true. We met for about 2 hours and talked about religion in general then about the restoration while he's stout, ancient, catholic mother yelled things from the other room. He has been getting his life in order for the past couple of months. He recently quit smoking and drinking and he's living with his mom until he finds a job. During the discussion he told us that he would have to find out a little bit more about us but in his words "ofcourse i know i need to be baptized into this church." He came to church with us on Sunday. Its kinda a long story but it ended up that during sacrament meeting elder thomas and I had to keep Czarek (1 yr old child of the ZL's investigator who actually now has a baptisimal date, heck yeahs) entertained in the primary room because he is a monster.. like words wouldnt do his description justice. Anyways owen sat next to zbyszek during sacrament meeting and after it was over I asked zbyszek how he liked it and.. he definitely didnt love it. All he said was "you guys have it better than the JW's" so i guess thats good. Then the investigator sunday school class was about the roles of men and women in the family.. really weird lesson. But Priesthood pulled through for us. It was all about testimony and how to gain one. Overall I think he liked it ... the only problem we have now is the distance. but yeah.. hes a righteous dude.
We had two other investigators in church and we have a handful of other investigators that we are working with that are solid. The work is keeping us busy for sure.. which is good because having lessons indoors beats trudging around in the snow.
Oh we had zone conference this week too.. it was way good.. elder kerr from the 70 came.. talked about becoming like a little child and having that pure faith and trust in people. best speaker ive listened to since holland in the mtc. heck yeahs lysh that so cool you got to hear him speak your last devo there. Safe journeys to and in Chile my dear sister :-)

i love you all! happy birthday again mother <3
