Wednesday, (Start of awesome) we got a referral for Stephen, we showed up and he lived in a mansion that had been split apart for apartments. It was super awesome. He invited us inside through this huge door. We taught him the restoration and he was super excited. It sounds like he has taken some heavy drugs in his past and it has fried him a bit. Sadly, happens a lot but he was excited.
Thursday, we got invited over for lunch to a part member family and it went awesome. The food was super good. My favorite mac and cheese and Burgers. We then go to a super scarry apartment complex, which I'm pretty sure passes all of the building codes by a particle. Really sketchy. We came home and we got comfortable, then Elder Barnson had the thought of grabbing the phone just in case.... President called... Elder Barnson is training!!!!! which is so awesome.
Friday, we had a zone conference, and they made us get flu shots, so that wasn't quite so awesome but hey the church doesn't want us sick. That night we had an awesome lesson with the Washingtons. We raced home /cause it was late and dark and East Cleveland.
Saturday, We taught Stephan again, and we set a date with him. It was amazing. What's really nice is that the sisters that sent us the referral call him all the time to see how he is doing. So we have been getting some good things done here. This put us up to 6 people on date...
Sunday was just the best ever. We had 6 investigators to church...Yeah Stephan came to church and we had Dembele as well... (we didn't know we were spelling his name wrong this whole time.) Then we thought that the zone leaders would be switched around a bit and that Elder Barnson would be called to be district leader now too. But then President said he wants to talk to me... So I'm going to be a Zone Leader in the Toledo Zone, and my companion is Elder Brown. So should be awesome. We get a truck... Yeah, I am so happy.
Monday we went on exchanges with our zone leaders so that was fun. We did some hard work together. We also went and taught that Part member family again, and the family was there this time and it was awesome. So now Elder Barnson is so set. We then went to a FHE for the YSA because a recent convert was there and an investigator. It was pretty cool cause I interviewed the recent convert. We went to the Kirtland Sites for FHE, and the sisters that gave the tour were in my district, and one of them is going home, so I got to see her last tour. It was so awesome.
Good things are going on and Elder Barnson is going to be a perfect trainer I just know. I hope that every one else has awesome weeks. But Toledo here I come..
