The beginning of the week was slow. All of our investigators were just not serious about keeping commitments. The frustrating things about Ghanaian's are that they will believe everything you teach them, but won't do anything about it. I think the funniest story I've heard yet has been about a couple missionaries who started to teach a pastor who just started his church and was growing his congregation. He was new and was still improving his knowledge of the bible, so he agreed to take lessons with the missionaries. They taught them everything they could and he believed it all, including the Book of Mormon. But instead of joining the church, he decided to just take all the beliefs and teach them to his own congregation! He will be preaching his sermon and quoting scriptures from the Book of Mormon! There is a Nigerian Pastor that goes by the name Pastor Chris, who was a member and went to BYU, who preaches to all of Africa using his own doctrine and doctrine of the Church. If you look him up I'm sure you'll find out a whole lot of things about him because he is FAMOUS here. Anyway I'm just trying to let you know I've been seeing a pattern with some people. My companion and I have been working hard with the members and it seems to be going well. We were given a referral from a member and it was their nanny who stays with them 24/7. We were able to teach her, and although she is holding onto beliefs of her old church still I can see her faith grow.
Another cool experience of the week was when a couple of our appointments fell through and so we decided to visit one of our investigators at a restaurant where she works. While we were talking to her, there were two women staring at us and when we were about to leave they called over the investigator and asked her to tell us to wait for them because they wanted to talk to us. I was thinking that they were probably wives of pastors and wanted to accuse us of teaching false doctrines, but instead they asked if they could learn more about our church! It was crazy. They were coming to us instead of us having to contact them. We still aren't sure how serious they'll be, but I'm hoping that since they came to us we'll be able to make them more interested!
