Yesterday, we were in an area we go to often. We have a progressing investigator there. Our investigator has told us that a lot of her neighbors don't like us, and have been trying to get her to stop listening to the Mormons. So yesterday we were there, and I stopped along the way and was helping a man hammer together a gate that he was building at his house. A middle aged woman and a little boy walked by us, and the boy acted like he was going to high five us or something, when the woman grabbed him and said under her breath "No get away, they're bad." As they walked away, I got up and introduced ourselves real kindly. She answered real kindly, too, and started to explain herself, "I was just telling the kid that he shouldn't play with the boys outside, because they fight a lot." We continued on our way, and I realised what just happened there. We are breaking down barriers. Right after we gave a Pentecostal guy a Book of Mormon. I like being a missionary.
I have been learning a lot of my weaknesses, and looking for ways to overcome them. Elder Wayne is good. He is a good friend to me.
Love you. See you on Friday.
