This week was a great week! First off, its super super hard to find people to teach and have them progress in our area! My companion has been in his area for almost 7 months and he pretty much worked every house so its been tough BUT when we do find them they are golden!
My BIRTHDAY this week was just great. Honestly I forgot about it in the morning looked at my watch and was like.... ITS THE 14! ITS MY BIRTHDAY! Time has been flying! It was a normal day - nothing special. I still have not recieved the package but i hope it comes soon!
On Saturday we went to an area where I haven't been before! Pretty poor and it smells pretty bad! I walked through a cemetary which is always cool! I knocked on this door and it was a family and we went to teach them. I asked, "what is something that you guys need in your family RIGHT NOW?" The wife replied, "We need more LOVE" OH MAN! There was some awkwardness because she was making a reference to her husband. I was laughing inside! Poor guy! It turned out to be a great lesson though and they accepted another appointment.
We contacted a guy and his wife and they were really cool and wanted to go to church. The problem is that the hombre can't walk that well. We called them Sunday morning to remind them about church but they didn't answer! So we just expected them to not come. They walk in during the sacrament hymn and I was so shocked that I couldn't stop laughing! The wife was super interested and the husband is looking forward to the lessons and the activities during the week!
Well...I'm NOT HAPPY the Jazz lost and are not in the playoffs!!! oh i was super excited! I know because I am serving that I helped you win that fly rod and reel and new vest! Awesome!! You can thank me later!
Have a good week! I love you and miss you!
