What's up!?

Here is what is going on with some people we are teaching:

One of the guys we have been seeing is still on the mark but not progressing anymore. He is not really responding to texts and keeps cancelling appointments. We do have one set up next week. He isn't getting an answer and we keep asking him to do the same things. I kind of feel like he is getting tired of us having him read and then pray to know so I'm not sure how much heart is going into his prayers anymore. We got to try and fire him up again somehow.

One of the ladies we have contacted still hasn't met with us. We're trying.  Another guy is having some troubles. We met with him and had a great discussion. In his mind, logically, the church is true. But, he WILL NOT pray. We tried to figure out why and he has no reason. He just won't do it. He even admitted that only real answers come from God and that we need to pray but he won't. He is a former investigator and has been taught for the past like 7 years. All of the drop statuses say he absolutely refuses to pray. I feel like he thinks of it like a game. Like he likes us trying to get him to do it, if that makes sense. We'll keep trying. We want to find a reason to why. We have some ideason how we can go about this. We teach him again on splits and Elders Sharp and Gorringe will be another good benefit in helping him.

Things are going well here. We contacting a referral who wasn't a referral. We went and conatcted a referral and were talking to her and she was interested. We set up an appointment with her and everything. We got her name and it wasn't the referral. She lives alone and it wasn't her. But this girl was interested. SWEET! Tomorrow it goes down.

Scott is moving into a new apartment. NICE. Thank you for the ipod you are making. that should be sweet and most needed.. The weather here is way nice. It feels so good and Savonlinna is a totally different city in the summer time. Everything is going very well. 

Elder Bryant bought a 4 euro suit also? I love Elder Bryant. He is so awesome. The suits here are so sweet. I love them. Elder Slade just bought a pair of pointy European shoes. They're sweet.

Story. We ran into this crazy bird. We filmed Elder Slade going over to it and it was swooping at him and yelling. It was so funny. But then some lady came out and yelled at us cause she thought we were like taunting it. So, it wasn't too good.

I speak in church this week. It should be fun. Patience and Hope is what I'm going for.

I got to go, I love you all
