Happy day of belches to Kenty and Kenshin! Tell Kenshin "Welcome to the planet!" for me and also that he chose a popular month to arrive. How exciting!
Unfortunately I do not have much time to write today, but we have a lot of great investigators who are very close to coming to church. Matt and Ting are a great christian couple, and Matt knows a lot about the Bible. They are progressing well, but there is a snag with Matt's parents, in whose house he lives. They are very strong in their church, and Matt's mom used to be a pastor. She doesn't want him visiting other churches. In the Hmong culture it is very dishonorable to make a major decision without parent approval, so Matt is torn.
Another investigator, Mai Kou, is ready to quit smoking! Huzzah! She will be coming to church this week.
Pa Kou, the sister of a strong member, has been investigating for a couple of years now, but is finally starting to get more serious about it.
Our area is being split into two areas starting next transfer, and we found a new apartment for the second team. It's a lot nicer than the one in which we currently live. We went over to look at the new place, and the rental office building was locked. As we stood shivering in the cold, I heard a strange rattling noise behind me. I turned to see an empty flagpole shivering as well! It was a bizarre sight. I'm guessing the wind was blowing at the right speed to match its frequency of natural resonance, but it looked like it was just shivering in the cold.
That's all I have time for, so love ya and toodle oo.
