This week has been a good one. We may have not have had the best numbers, but we have been able to get a hold of some less actives and one of them gave us 4 referrals. I am so glad for the weather warming up so we can have the opportunity to meet with others outside instead of being stuck inside. I am so excited for this week we had an awesome lesson with an investigator, Charles, and he promised to read out of the Book of Mormon for 10 minuets a day. He is an awesome person he truly wants to learn more. Then we were able to meet with some less actives that Elder Robinson hasn't met before and some that he has. The best part is we have a lesson tonight and possibly tomorrow with 2 of them. I am so pumped for this week and I know it will be better than the past few.
Well not too many cool things but we almost missed our district meeting this week because there was a fight at a bus transfer point. And the week before we were on a bus going to another station and there was a guy that went crazy and had to have 6 cops hold him down. So we didn't find out about the fight and what happened until Saturday when this guy in our apartment complex told us that 40-60 students were at the station and decided to fight and 2 cops got knocked down so they called for back up. When they were on their way the fire department came and started to hose them down. Following getting hosed down the back up showed up, 17 squad cars, and 16 kids got tazed. Then the next night these kids got the bus stopped and because they were rowdy and cursing a ton, the bus driver called the cops. We got stopped to the point that we should have missed our bus but the driver called ahead and asked them to wait. Unfortunately the kids all got off the bus before the cops got there. I love the Madison buses! I hope you have a good week.
Love you all,
Elder Robert Pike
