Whats up and happenin' in the LBC?
This week we taught a lot of lessons but not one person showed up to church but oh well, there is always next Sunday.
One of our investigators named Carlos is a Catholic minister. He invited us to come to his radio station and let us preach for 30 min on the radio! I am so pumped for that. We are planning on watching the Restoration movie with him sometime this week. We were supposed to watch it with him last week but I think he was either out of town - or hiding from us.
We were passing by this house and they were bumping "Still Dre" by Dr. Dre and I wanted to contact that house!! They came out and we just started talking to them about this song and others. They thought it was kinda weird hearing a white missionary talk about this music. Then after we are talking about the restoration and they told us we can come back and talk more about the plan of salvation. God works in mysterious ways...maybe God used a Dr. Dre song to get my attention and head over to that house — haha!! I don’t know but it was a cool experience.
We are going to be starting an English class here and hope to find some golden investigators from it. We are also starting a Mission Prep class for the ward. I remember when Rob Smith would always take us to mission prep and I figured it could help the kids that are close to mission age to have a class like I had.
People always look so intimidated and nervous when we are talking with them. We literally have to calm them down and usually they calm down and see we aren’t crazy people. I still don’t know why people are always running from us. Its ridiculous - I mean, I know I’m ugly but I’m not THAT ugly! I still don’t get it and I just want to talk to them and teach them and show them that our message is of Christ and not something out of this world.
I was studying in Preach my Gospel and it was talking about how important this work is. It pumps me up before I go out. I always get pumped to find a family before we head out. It helps me get going and more determined to find the people that are prepared.
I am getting a nice beard coming in now and I WISH I could grow it out!! I used shaving cream for the first time in my life - I wrote about it in my journal. HAHA!!
It is so great to hear from everyone! Please let me know how you are all doing!
