Hello family and friends. Another great week for Elder Durrant and me. As of right now we have 6 people on a date for baptism. We had to drop the date for Marcus and Susan June 20. Get this... so Marcus prayed to get a job and then he then called us and said he got it. But the job is all the way up in Blackpool, which is WAY north. So we have mixed feelings about it. Like we are happy he prayed and got the job but we don't know the next time we will be able to meet with them. Susan said he might be back this weekend and he will call us when he gets back.
But we did have a great lesson with a man named Kwame. He is a media referral and he wants to come to church but works on Sunday. So with the help of our Ward Mission Leader we put him on a date for July 27. We said if you really want to know this is true and want a new job set this date and let the Lord do his work. And then we pulled out 1 Nephi 3:7. It was very strong lesson. I haven't had a lesson like that in a while.
Elder Durrant worked his magic this week. He said he felt like we needed to go by this house and it was a girl who he met a few weeks ago when he was on exchange. We meet with her and her twin sister and set up a time for us to go by later in the week. I was on exchange with a new elder so I didn't get to be in the lesson. I get back from the exchange and Elder Durrant says he has one of the girls on a date for July 5. I was shocked! And then he says both of them are coming to church this Sunday. So they come to church and during 3rd hour I have Elder Durrant go with a member and teach both of them and I stay with Festus (our investigator for June 27) So 3rd hour is over I go up to them and Elder Durrant is showing them the baptism font and one of them says I'm going to try and get my mom to church and I want my mom to get baptized on July 5 as well. So Elder Durrant worked his magic and we have two17 year old girls on a date and the mom said she will come to church this Sunday. We are meeting with them Tuesday but I'm on exchange again so Elder Durrant will be with another elder meeting with them. I have no fear Elder Durrant will handle it alright.
Festus is still good and on pace for June 27. The other two are on a date for July 29. It's a bus driver named Henry and his little girl Beverly. We can only meet with them once a week so it sucks but they both said they will read and pray. We also plan to work with the wife...once we meet her.
Everything is going very well. The Lord blessed us this week once again. It's crazy to think just two weeks ago we had nothing happening. The area was dead and I mean dead... nothing was happening.
Thank you all for the letters and emails you are all so good to me.
Love Elder Doty
Hey BIG news just came in like right after I left from email. A lady from the mission called me and said President asked me to get my British divers license. Don't really know what that means but it sounds pretty cool!
