A Ton of Tracting!!

        So this week has been pretty uneventful :/ a ton of tracting!! The new year came with nothing special...we had to be home at 9 (same as every night) and in bed by 10:30 (also same as every night) we have tried to visit some investigators which i have just realized i have said nothing about!! my bad... So there is a lady we are teaching and her name is Angela, i don't really know much about her because every time we have gone over she has been gone or sick, but other elders have been working with her for a while now. Our next investigator is a family. Once again they were talked to right before i got here so i barely know anything about her and her kids. but every time we knock on the door and she answers they keep saying they want a church tour!!! (where we walk them through the church building and explain what goes on during church so if they do come to church they have some idea and are not sitting there awkwardly) Our other investigator is Scott. He is a really hands on do it himself kinda guy but he is awesome. every time we go over there we talk about life for a little while but then we have to leave because he is working on projects around the house. Our last investigator is Allison!! I actually tracted into her, did the whole door approach!! Some things that we say when at the door is " Hi we're missionaries and we are coming around sharing a message about Jesus Christ, is that something that you would like to hear?" well previous to that Elder Hathaway and I had gotten things like "not interested" or "go away my door says no soliciting!!" (which by law because we aren't selling anything we aren't soliciting) Anyways Allison said "sure" well me being a greenie totally froze up because since i was there we hadn't had anyone say yes so i didn't know what to say!!! luckily Elder Hathaway saved me and he jumped in and we gave her a book of mormon, but because of the holiday season all of our potentials haven't had time to read because life is so hectic. Next week i will give you more info on everything that has happened with them because im hoping that because the holiday season is over people will have time to read the book of mormon. I love you all!!!
