Okay here are some funny quotes from this week:
"Guys....I think its gonna snow today! We are going skiing for p-day tomorrow!!" -Hermana Knopf
Elizabeth ( a white lady we OYM'd): "The next time i see you will be in heaven."
Hermana Bennion: "No doubt...no doubt..."
Hermana Bennion: "Hi, we are missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints..."
Asian lady standing at the door (shaking her hand in front of her mouth): "hmmmmm......hmmm..... im sorry i'm christian." *closes the door*
Okay as you can see, this week was soooooo random!!! haha but it was tons of fun and so great!!! The quotes will make more sense I guess as I explain more about the week! It was hard but tons of crazy weird stuff happened. Really... there is NEVER a typical or normal day in the life of a missionary!!!! So here is what happened.
Tuesday, WEIRDEST DAY OF MY ENTIRE LIFE!! Okay I will try and make the story short. Here is what went down. So we went to go visit a potential investigator but she wasnt home. Oh before that i ran into Hermana Johnson on her bike and my bike got messed up so I had to fix it. So i was just mad. Then we go to see the potential and she wasnt there. So i was just not happy and having a horrible day so I knew I couldnt teach with the spirit. So we sat on a bench and talked for an hour just fixing things that needed to be fixed and talked about how we could work in unity to help the area. very needed! So good. Then we went to the bike store to get our brakes tightened. The guy that was working was a little weird and kept staring at us and then his boss walked in and he had a SUGAR GLIDER!!!! soooooooo cute!!!!! and the guy working told us to pray for his boss. a little wierd but i got to pet a sugar glider!!!! So then we went to see Maria and she tells us she feels a little drunk from her medicine she took and the kind of music that people listen to when they are high was playing in her apartment. Then her drunk son walks in and I was like "Um do you mind if we turn the music off so we can talk to your mom??" Then we read out of the Book of Mormon with her. So weird. Then as we are about to unlock our bikes we had a bit of a scary encounter with a guy that lives in that apartment complex! It was aboutand we didnt want to go anywhere else because we just didnt feel safe so we we went to a members apartment and she fed us enchiladas and we watched finding faith in christ! Then we went to get some stuff at the apartment and then head to the church to help Hermana Moreno with an application! but... she never showed up!!! So we played games with the young women and then taught them all a lesson! And ate yummy hamburgers!! :) Just a weird day!!!
Wednesday, was awesome!! We got a new investigator, Elizabeth and she accepted a date!!! She is so getting baptized!!! She has been taught before but never accepted a date and now is has!! SHe is friends with Hermana Moreno which is perfect. The lesson went sooo great and it was just awesome!!! Then we went to see Monique and serve her :) love that lady sooo much!!! We also taught Janie and found out she is progressing with the divorce and she just understands how baptism is a promise and a covenant and she is going to get baptized soon!!! we had a great talk with her and i love that woman to death. shes great!
Thursday, we helped the other hermanas move into their apartment!! sad to see them go but it was time!! haha it was a fun day though!!
Friday, we had interviews with president and trainings with the assistants!! we had a training on baptizing weekly and how we as a mission will be baptizing 1000 this year! the spirit was so strong in that training!! We recieved a spiritual confirmation of the people in our area that we have right now that will be baptized this year. I have never felt the spirit so strong in my entire life. sooo cool! My testimony of personal revelation was strengthened so much!!!
Saturday, we did exchanges!! Hermana Bennion came to me! We talked to a lot of crazy people, had a door slammed in our face, talked to an indian that has been to the visiters center in Hawaii, got the same family as a referral 3 times, got shut down alot, had a great lesson with a less active (surprise lesson but she gave us pizza), bikked like 10 million miles, had to wear sweaters because it was cold, and had a surprise noche mormona with the greatest members and investigator Antonio!!! What a great and eventful day!
Then, we had a baptism!! well it was a ward baptism but hermana moreno needed help with it so we made the program and i played piano and it was so fun!! Little Angel is just adorable!! i love him and his family so much. So that was super fun. And Maria came! She is such a trooper and she is so converted. I lov eher to death. But it was a great day! And I finally played piano in front of others. scaryyyy. it was fine though. OH! And we walked outside and it was... COLD!!! i had to wear a sweater and everything!! felt like utah! i believe it gets cold in texas now!! haha
Well i am all out of time but i love this gospel so much!! And i know that it is so true!! I am so grateful to be a missionary and to serve in this wonderful work!!! This gospel is so happy and i love it. Hope you all had a wonderful week and that this week is better!!!! Remember... i like candy and i like halloween and packages. but anyways i love you all!!!
con mucho amor,
