What a week! We found a lot of new investigators which was great! But we`ll see who actually let`s us talk to them again this week. Our two super awesome investigators who went to stake conference last week, didn`t come yesterday, they`re still good but man....... oh well. We`ll keep working with them.
Question. Has a woman with a newborn baby ever fed the baby (if you know what I mean) in front of you before as she`s reading scriptures and talking to you about keeping the sabbath day holy? It`s quite the experience.
Our president just sent us all a letter with info about our new mission president and he`s from Idaho. I`m super stoked but I like our current president too.
Last week when I was with my mini missionary, I was contacting a ton of people in the street, and found one lady that just started saying she really wanted to help her family and then saw my Book of Mormon and said "hey I have that at my house somewhere. Somebody gave it to my dad but he didn`t want it." So I was super stoked to go and talk to her. We went to her house (FOREVER AWAY IN THE BLAZING SUN!!!!) and asked for her and got two very confused looks from two other girls at the door who said they were her daughter and daughter in law. They said she was home and invited us in. We went in and they all looked at us super confused, but after about 5 minutes they turned out to be super friendly and now they love us and want us to come over and teach them the gospel every day. And they came to church yesterday, woohoo! So we`re doing good over there. But every time we leave their house it`s like a movie moment decision. If we go one way it`s way faster, but through a wooded super poor area, or we can go the other way which is way longer but safe.... Don`t worry we go the safe way.... But it`s a rough decision every time.
So every week we have this thing called "Noche de Hermanamiento" (basically mutual but we do it because the ward is... not very self sufficient right now...) and this week I said I`d do it. So I took all the people that came on a private tour of life after death in the plan of salvation. We visited the spirit world, and the three kingdoms of glory. We read scriptures in each room and changed the lighting and didn`t turn on the fan in the spirit prison, so I think they got the point. And we had cookies in the celestial kingdom, so we`ll see where all of them end up in like 80 years.
Well that`s the weekly report from the blazing inferno. There was a nice breeze these last 2 months, but now it`s all coming to an end and getting hotter, so here we go!
Thank you to everyone who reads these and I hope all is going well.
Bros: Thanks for your letters every week, I try to read at least a little every week haha. And Peter, yes sister voyles is the worst. I`m an elder Bott fan myself. One of the Elders in my apartment said that his brother once as a zone leader did a training of "The best and worst of Elder Moreno" haha.
Edward: I miss you and I`m glad you`re there in the Philipines and that you got to hold a chicken, I haven`t held anything.. And I can`t wait to ONLY shake your right hand after the mission.
Addison: Your the man and I miss you
