Hey guys! This week has been pretty awesome. We've seen some weird stuff but a lot of awesome things have been happening as well! One of our most progressing investigators, Evelyn, is doing really well! She's a bit older, in her 50s-60s I can't tell ages here! We have another investigator in the Binnalands since he's in the military here so we've been having to do phone call lessons with him, it certainly is a weird experience teaching at home. Yesterday we were trying to meet with a contact that we had met on the street. As we headed to her house she yelled out to us, "Een andere keer!" So we got on our bikes and kept riding, so we decided that it was a good time to start contacting. It went really well! We stopped at this one house and started to "klop" but they didn't hear us after a while so we got on our bikes and began to keep going when these two little kids, about 6 or 7 talked to us a bit, nothing unusual to hear from little kids! As we were leaving the house we saw a woman doing laundry in her yard and we said how we would head over there. When we started talking to the woman it turns out that one of the boys was her son! She was pretty excited about the Book of Mormon but she was worried that she wouldn't have time to read it, so I got out a pamphlet and began to write our info on it, as I was waiting for an opportunity to offer it to her, one of the boys saw the picture of Jesus on the front and was curious, so I flipped through the pictures on it and they liked it! One of the little boys, John, said how his house was down the street and how he wanted his family to hear more! So we went to the house and the boys began running around the housing (it had multiple tenants) trying to find people for us to teach, we had the boys contacting for us! John and Chavez were pretty cool boys. John's mom was sleeping so we talked to him a little bit, he was surprised when we explained that this was what we did for work, he wanted a pamphlet so we gave him it with our info and began to ride off, until his mom came out. When we began talking to her and gave her a Book of Mormon, I kid you not, he pumped his fist in the air! Elder Cooper and I each got pictures with these awesome kids! As we were talking to John's mom the boys were back talking to Chavez's mom talking about the pamphlet that they had! Little missionaries in the making?
