We met a less active member that was a referral from a ward member. Her name is M. She lived somewhere else and was baptized and loved the missionaries and always had them over. Then they moved to Lowell and didn't know where the church was so they stopped going to church. When we met them they were so nice and friendly and i feel like all they needed was an invite to church and thats all it took. They came on sunday-the whole fam- and had a great time. It was way cool. and now we have dinner with them tonight so that is another bonus.
We had tours this week with our zone leaders. So Elder W, who is a Cambodian speaking missionary who moved out of the program because of leadership, came to Lowell and Elder A. went to Nashua for a day. Elder W. is the "father" of Elder W. who is the "Father" of me (father=trainer) so we had 3 generations, kinda cool. He is hilarious and we had a good time and had to go to court with him cuz a few months ago he got a traffic ticket that he wanted to fight. Ha, just imagine 3 missionaries waiting to go to the court room. Awesome.
Speaking of which, get this: I got a letter from J J (cousin) this week that said that she had a roommate at college that goes to the Hyde Park YSA ward in the summers here in Lowell. On Sunday i met her and she told me she was just in St. George visiting family last week. Weird huh? Roommates with my cousin, in the ward im serving in, and was just barely in my home town. I don't know about you but i think that is crazy.
On Saturday we went to a member's house and decorated easter eggs along with other families in the ward. That was fun. And on Sunday we had a great meal. Not your normal easter meal but actually a traditional Italian 3 course meal provided by some italian members in our ward. It was way good. We get to experience all types of food here in this widely diverse city. Alright thats enough writing. No luck with C. Haven't seen him for a week :( but we keep going. Thats all we can do, is keep moving forward.
I love you all so much! thanks for being so wonderful!-
Love,Elder Brady Johnson
