It's A Hard Knock Life

Hey there!

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 working hard.

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 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 be baptized:)

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 Jesus Christ!

Love you all!
