Nyob zoo again!
Well, the good news is that 100% of our investigators are progressing toward baptism. The bad news is we only have one investigator. I don't remember if I mentioned that Shue is already a member, and has been for many years. Shue and his (cultural) wife, Ia, are done with marriage counciling and are applying for a marriage license, after which they will become legally wed. They both are looking forward to an eternal marriage, so it's pretty safe to say that it won't take very long for Ia to get baptized.
Meanwhile, we are trying to find more people to teach. The St. Paul Hmong New Year is coming up, and we got a booth! It's going to be awesome. We got a spot right by the door where everybody will walk by multiple times. We are loading up on pamphlets, BoMs, and pass-alongs because we are going to be there all 3 days, and there will be about 30,000 Hmong people. We're going to have a DVD player playing church videos like "Finding faith in Christ" and "The Restoration". Methinks this may be the way we replenish our teaching pool.
You got the pictures of the baptism, right? Here's some random other pictures. I had to take a picture of the yellow sign, because as soon as I saw it I thought, "Multi-purpose room!!" It seemed to me more like he was jumping in the air and clicking his heels, rather than slipping and falling. Good times.
Well, keep it up all of you all!
