New Tracting Tactics, Referrals, & Investigators
so this week was pretty cool, we took some time to try street contacting down at the plaza to see if we could talk to any of the thousands of people that are down there! not a whole lot of success but I wanna go back and try some new tactics on how to get people to talk to us while they are shopping! a family In our ward said that we should take their poodles down there and walk them cuz they always get stopped and talked to about them then we could just put a plug in for the Book of Mormon too lol I think were going to try it! it sounds fun!
because this area is so populated, we get a ton of referrals! but referrals are like testimony meeting, you never know what you are going to get! some are good, some are bad, and some are crazy! like ones that you receive from a mental hospital! :P or when you get stopped by a few people and you get asked to pray with them and then you’re asked to come back and read scriptures with them and then they try hitting on you..... yeah no... not good! I don't enjoy that a whole lot. super friendly but perhaps for the next set of missionaries :p
we had a sick lesson with laura our i'd say coolest investigator and most looking forward to getting baptized! she's great, we taught her about the temple and temple blessings! she's so ready for baptism, we are just kinda waiting to have certain pieces fall into place for it. but we are going over to have FHE with her with Martino and martai! it should be pretty tight!
I love this area so much! its a blessing to be here in Kansas City and I just love being out serving the Lord! :)
