February 10, 2014

Well, this week, we got contacted by some Jehovah's Witnesses, which was weird, but now I know how it feels for some random dude to come up and talk to you on the street.  And we also met the queen of Orthodoxy in that same hour.  We knocked on her door and she opens up and we tell her we have a survey for her, and she just goes into this rant about how she's Orthodox and how everyone in the whole bloc was born and raised Orthodox, and they're christian, and they're not looking for another religion, and so on and so forth.  So I was like, great!  This survey is made to help us get to know Romanians better!  We want to know more about Orthodoxism.  And she's like, what kind of survey is this?  So I said, for example:  and then said the first question.  She answered and then I moved on.  It took her a couple more questions to get fed up and slam the door, but it still felt like a success to me.
We did a less-active visit to a guy in the branch who likes to make things out of wood.  First of all, his chandelier is made out of wood and it's really intricate and cool, and he's also working on the Washington DC temple right now.  Apparently, in the past, he used to take requests from missionaries and he'd build them temples.  But he doesn't do that anymore because of his feet hurting.
On Saturday, we had our English classes and we had a bunch of new students this time, and at the end I invited them all to church and they all seemed super interested and we even got some potential investigators out of it, but then none of them came.  Normal.
