So this was probably one of the rougher weeks numbers-wise for us...
We taught about 5 lessons overall so I am only going to do the days
where we had some excitement! We have been really trying to find more
people to teach and we talk to a lot of people so we are contusion
Tuesday we talked to a pretty interesting guy named David. We were
walking past Main Street and he asked us if we had any reading
material for him. We gladly gave him a Book of Mormon and a couple
of pamphlets. We got talking to him and we realized shortly after what
kind of mess we had gotten ourselves into! We thought he was joking
about some of the stuff he said but when he said he had mental issues,
we were like "oh, he is being serious!!". He said he was born of the
sky, had a god superman tattoo, and believed that superman, batman,
and Spider-Man are gods... Oh man haha and that is only a few of
things he talked about!
Wednesday we made plans to go talk to this family that we have been
trying to see for a while. We tracted on their doors awhile back and
they told us to come back but they hadn't been home! Anyways, we were
talking to a guy washing his Jeep and we noticed this small group of
people a couple of doors down. With it being dark and hardly any
street lights around, we were a little hesitant attempting to talk
them. When we got done with talking to the Jeep guy, they called us
over. We went over there and a man named Vernon from Saudi Arabia
started asking questions about prayer and repentance and stuff like
that. He is a Muslim and he was open to hearing what we had to say. He
even took a Book of Mormon and a Mormon.org card.
Thursday Elder West hit his year mark! We also had correlation and we
went with Brother Morrison to Ted and Kayla's home. It was great being
able to talk to the two of them and trying to figure out what we could
do to help them!
Friday we had district meeting and then some news that made us pretty
sad. We called the family where our investigator Tiffany lives and
they told us she moved to Coos Bay! Bummer! We know though that she is
going to be taught what we were teaching her so I just hope she will
Saturday was a lot of service!! We painted a house for about 4 hours,
doing trim work and such and then we helped out moving a piano! We
also got invited for desserts as we were walking by by two families in
the ward. We got talking to some of the youth that were there and we
challenged them to hand out Book of Mormons with their testimony in
them! It was great!
Sunday we had a lesson with RJ and then went around and tried talking
to people. That's pretty much it except for church!
Wow that was longer than I thought! Well, although this wasn't the
most stellar week a missionary could have, I still found joy in it. I
love being a missionary!:) I love this church and I love my Savior
Love you all!
