On Tuesday we had another lesson with Tony (Simone is in Brazil). We showed the Restoration video and talked about his reading of the Book of Mormon. He felt the name "Moroni" come into his mind so he skipped to the book of Moroni before completing 1 Nephi. We told him that was OK. He can feel the truth of the book as he reads it. He has a commitment working each Sunday until the end of December then will be able to attend church.
Wednesday we had a district meeting in the morning. The activity was instruction on how to bear your testimony quickly on the bus and mark a visit before you (or the contact) needs to get off the bus. Though this applied more to the younger missionaries than to us, it was interesting. We had an activity where we went into a room to find as many contacts (pieces of candy) as possible in three minutes. We found five, leaving one on the chalkboard unfound. I guess we need to start looking up instead of down.
We took Elder Woodruff to Unionville again on Wednesday. This time we were able to take a short walk around a small lake.

We had another lesson with Marzia on Wednesday, teaching about the commandments. A friend of hers from Iran stayed to hear the lesson. Marzia as well as her friend agreed to each of the commandments. She didn't make it to church on Sunday, but did attend the Mission President's fireside on Sunday evening. It was unusual for us to have an investigator at the fireside.
The institute lesson this week was on developing knowledge and wisdom. We figured out how to make a picture of our slides, so you will get one of them here:
