Death by second-hand smoke?

Hey family and friends!
Nothing much to explain about the title. This country just makes me worry about my health. Nowhere is safe.

This week's letter is gonna be super short. We did a lot of finding this week and found some great potential investigators. But as for current amis, many of our rendez-vous fell through and most of our amis don't have anything new to talk about. Christian still comes to church but isn't able to meet with us during the week, even right after church. Haven't been able to get in touch with his family. Lony is still as strong as ever. Edmond, our ami from Madagascar, still won't come to church. Andrea and Alex are still kind of stagnant, because they don't manage to get to church most weeks and also our LoC lesson clearly had little effect. *cough*
I'll just share one experience and then I'm out. Long story short, this guy gave us his address that turned out to be incomplete, and then wouldn't answer his phone, so we ended up just standing around in some ville in the middle of nowhere waiting for him to call us back. As we waited, this girl started talking to us from her window, and we set a RDV for the next day (yesterday). We went, shared the first lesson, and invited her to pray at the end. She prayed, and it was super heartfelt, and she expressed her thanks to God for having put us into her path. At the end of the prayer she was crying. She really needs this. I'm glad we found her.
We've also had specific spiritual promptings that all led to us finding someone to teach. Many people to see next week. I don't have enough time to explain them all, but just know...God is there. He cares about us all.
Love you all!

Elder Stanford
