Tuesday- We were able to bring our Mission President and his wife out teaching with us to a lesson with Bill and Rose G****. That's the eor pajama man. He was wearing it while we taught him as well. It was great having President right alongside us teaching and he added a great testimony to the lesson which was great to hear and see. Sadly Bill and Rose G**** told us not to come by anymore after this visit. So that will be the last of them, unless they want us back.
Wednesday- We had a great district meeting where i got a cool quote. It says
GO AND DO, DON'T SIT AND STEW! and in order to get the full effect of this quote you have to read the "don't sit and stew" out loud with a squinted face as if you just sucked on a lemon. That is a good quote to help you get out of those moods where you don't feel like doing anything or talking to anyone.
Thursday- We had a dinner at a less-actives home named Sister G***** and she taught us how to make fried rice and general tsao chicken. Its super tasty but it is totally not good for you haha. I had a little bit to much which required me to run 5.1 miles the next morning haha. We taught a lot of lessons this week. 25 total lessons to Investigators and Less-active members.
Friday- We visited with a man who was extremely over weight. At one point he went over the 500 lb barrier! He is currently 350ish and is stuck in a bed all day every day. Just being there in the room with him made me grateful for the physical condition i am in. I am so happy to be able to just walk outside and feel the sun, and to be able to go places without worrying about my physical problems.
Saturday- We tracted this day a good amount and no one in specific was interested in learning about Jesus Christ and his teachings. But one man named Dave put those teachings into practice during our visit. We knocked on this door and he comes around the side and tells us how he is never going to convert to the LDS religion but he really wanted to talk to us as people and get to know us. We talked to him for a good 10 minutes telling him about our personal reasons for doing a mission as well as how our lives are going to pan out after the mission. He was so nice and at the end of our talk he went inside his house and got us some water bottles and fruit snacks and sent us on our way, wishing us luck at that. It was SO great to just meet a person that was willing to open his heart and just talk to us. So unselfish and it really opened my eyes and helped me to remember that i want to be as kind and nice as he was.
Sunday- It was a perfect Sunday with the sun shining and it was 75 degrees. I was so happy with the weather. We fasted for another missionaries investigator and i guess it worked because they are getting baptized this Saturday unexpectedly... We were able to meet up and teach Saikou, the 17 year old Senior in high school whose friend is a member of the ward and we went over to their house, (the Hughes) and read Alma 32. Which talks about faith being compared to a seed.
I am so excited for the Skype this Sunday and come with questions to ask me because i want to make this hour worth it!!!! love you all!!!!!!!
