this last week was pretty good, we taught the 1st lesson
in Mongolian on Friday..it was kinda rough to get through
but we did it and i felt pretty good about it.we've been
working on it throughout this week as well to get it down
better and get the vocab memorized and we'll give it again
tomorrow,i feel a bit more confident about it this time!
we've also been working on small talk type conversation
and have started working on whats called taxi referrals,
in other words we just talk to someone for like two minutes
and then give them a short one minute explanation/
testimony of God and Jesus Christ and to get them to commit
to us to come to their house (ger) and teach them more.
Since Mongolians are Buddhists they don't anything about
god so we have to start from scratch and work our way up..
but the funny thing is that the majority of them have seen
the passion of Christ it got translated and it was this
huge epidemic that swept through the country and everyone
saw it! so most of them have heard of Jesus Christ, they
just don't know understand His role and what He did for us,
so that's a good thing to hit em with.. just a real quick
explanation and them with a cliffhanger! also another
really cool thing about Mongolians is they are so nice
welcoming that if you ask to come to their house they
will say yes just about every single time and they'll
let you in and listen to what you have to say. so we've
been working on short conversations-and testimonies.
this last Tuesday for our devotional we had elder
Dellenbach come and talk to us about how much of a
miracle the book of Mormon is, it was really
interesting and i wanna tell ya all about it but im
outta time so if i remember I'll do it next week!
well i love you all and hope to hear from everyone shortly
sooo... write letters!!!
I will email to Greg any comments that are made so he can
read them. Greg's mom
