Sister Kinneard and I went tracting yesterday with the intention of passing out copies of the Book of Mormon. After the first few doors of no interest, we were becoming discouraged. Then we had one door who opened it and then closed it and said to the others that we were Jehovah's Witnesses. We knocked again to correct them and they ignored us. We had decided to leave and as we were getting in the car, we decided there were four more doors on that street, so we needed to knock at least one more door.
We knocked and a guy named Jeremy answered and we gave him a Book of Mormon. Then we were going to leave, but we knocked on one more door. A man answered and he told us that he already meets with spanish missionaries and has a spanish Book of Mormon.
Then we knocked on one more door and met a 14 year old boy: Christian. We gave him a copy of the Book of Mormon and he was really interested and we gave him another copy of the Book of Mormon to give to his friend. He has spring break, so we can't teach him for another week, we taught him to pray though! It was great!
We knocked on the last door and gave a spanish Book of Mormon to a guy named Gustavo, he's interested in becoming the best person he can be. It was an amazing hour yesterday! We taught Jada this week, she's 11 and amazing! She's getting baptized on April 25th. Her dad has been coming back to church since October and he is a recovering addict. His mother has prayed for him for over 30 years and she is seeing her prayers answered now and she is receiving even more blessings. Her other grandson, Jordan, Jada's brother is interested in learning more too!
We had dinner with the Paynes last night, they are an amazing family, both are RMs. We've been teaching this 91 year old man named Quentin, he needs company more than anything and if he doesn't embrace the gospel in this life, then he will in the next!!
Sister Kinenard reached her year mark!! I am so blessed to be here in Newberg!!
