Week 2


 I am having a spectacular time here!  I love my comp, the other two elders, and the members and investigators. Last week, the Lord finally answered our prayers and led us to a new investigator who was humbled by her loss of a job and was prompted to call us.  

We called this guy named Liyu Bin.  He had been contacted by the missionaries in the past but they never really kept visiting him.  So we called him and said, "Hello.  We're the missionaries."  He said, "Machinery?"  "No, we're the missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints."  Then he hung up.  Ten minutes later, he called back.  He asked, "Are you from Verizon?"  We told him, "No, we're from the Church."  "The Church?"  "Yes, the Church."  Then he hung up again.  Good times.

So, yeah, New Jersey has been great. I also have a TON of emails to reply to so my next emails will have to be short.  I haven't forgotten you guys, promise. 

I miss signing so much!  There's just not a lot of Deaf people here, I guess.  There are a lot of Peruanos, so I have been able to use my Spanish with that regard.

I love you all in all the sincerity that I can muster through this keyboard.  Wish you the best.

Love,
Elder deJesus
