When Elder Christensen came to Blackburn about
three weeks ago i was on an exchange with Elder
so we decided to try by someone in the area and on
our way there we street contacted someone and set up
a return appointment. We tried to contact him multiple
times after that but he was either not in or was busy.
Then last Monday night we weren't sure what we
should do for i believe the next hour before our next
appointment and we decided to try by the man we
street contacted again, which we did and he was in
and he invited us in. We were able to teach him the
Restoration and I invited him to be baptized on April
19th and he said yes.
(Mike's new area is Stretford, just outside of Manchester. His new companion is Elder Yates from Bountiful, Utah and they share an apartment with their Zone Leaders, Elder Chong from Malaysia and Elder Calliera from Portugal).
Saturday an investigator of ours was baptised. He was found quite a while back possibly around 3 years ago and now he has finally been baptised. Yesterday he was confirmed a member and then later that night we went to the missionary fireside in Swinton and he bore his testimony there as well. Also i got to see my mission brother Elder Gourrat who is from Tahiti (Elder Leiva trained him). We had a great week this week.
