So this week was a little slower, but we found some really amazing people and have a lot of new investigators. one of my favorites we were walking down the street and we came up to this old lady sitting outside with a bunch of kids we started to introduce ourselves and she said that she was catholic and she was good, but then one of the boys was like. "No grandma let them talk!" he then went on to tell us about how he sells candy and he knows how we feel to get rejected. He said " I get like a thousand no's and only 12. Yes's. So keep talking I will listen to you" this kid was awesome. so we go on to tell a little bit about what we share and how our message can bless families and so forth, he then excitedly exclaimed "that’s exactly what we need!!" we asked if there would be a time that we could come back and the grandma was like no thanks we're good. But the kid was like "well you can come over to my house and talk to my parents! Can you come over every Monday?" He was so cool! His name is Orlando and he’s about 11 and we are going over to meet his family tonight at 7 :) we also went by this lady that we met a while ago in the street, she usually wasn’t home at the time we went over, but we decided to try anyway, and she was home! She let us in and we had a really great first lesson. And at the end when we asked her to pray instead of being like "no it’s better if one of you do, or next time I will" like EVEYONE does she was like "OK! How do I start?" it was awesome she is so sweet and her kids are sooooo cute! She already seems like a member.
So yesterday the trunk on our car broke and now it won’t close, so I climbed in to the trunk through the back seat and I tied it down from the inside with some string and it worked! We closed the seat and went on throughout the rest of our day. we then realized that you can only put the back seats down from the trunk which was now tied shut... so now we are in a pickle and we can’t get any of the supplies out of the back of our car because we were super smart and sealed it shut.... hmm. Well I guess we will figure that one out later. Ha-ha
Also this week during personal study I found a suuuuper good scripture! My favorite thing to read during studies is the Book of Mormon. That book is SO cool!! well anyway this one is found in 2 Nephi 10:20 "And now, my beloved brethren, seeing that our merciful God has given us so great knowledge concerning these things, let us remember him, and lay aside our sins, and not hang down our heads, for we are not cast off; nevertheless, we have been driven out of the land of our inheritance; but we have been led to a better land, for the Lord has made the sea our path, and we are upon an isle of the sea." It just made me think about how sometimes we are led out of our comfort zones or our " Land of inheritance" and we don't know why, and its hard. But as long as we follow what the lord he will lead us to a "better land" and will help us grow and discover our eternal potential. He has made the "sea our path" the sea is not smooth. There are ups and down, sunny days and stormy days. But that’s how we learn. We learn to enjoy life and be happy, and we learn to be strong and face the waves of the adversary with courage and with hope! I love being on a mission. It’s such a blessing to not only help others learn more about the gospel but myself as well! I learn something new every day and I LOVE it! Love it Love it :) it’s the best! Well talk to ya'all later! Have a great week!
