This was a good week. We had a good turn out at church this week and some good lessons also. Our investigator Jewel came to church this week for the first time and I was so stoked about that. Jewel is such a baller. Idk how much I have told y'all about her but she has a food phobia, for three months she only ate Cheeze -it's™, cereal bars, and Hi-C juice. Now she is actually getting over her fears and eating food but she has to be careful because she hasn't eaten real food in so long. We had a lesson with her and some less active members that live close to her (because she lives way out in the boonies) and that went well.
We had 3 dinners last night; sometimes you show up to a lesson at people's houses and they just expect you to eat a full meal with them. So it's kinda a blessing and a curse.
Last week a man named Juan Lopez just showed up to church with a member that's only partially active. We had a lesson with him that went really well. Our two other really promising investigators are the Teffinds and Sam.
Good news/cool stories:
One time our mission president gave us a training on referrals and told us that night if we did our best to ask for a member referral we would get one. That was probably 4 months ago. That night we did get a referral and we did start teaching him. And he got baptized this weekend in Grand Prairie.
Also one day our bishop in GP told us to ask this inactive lady for a referral, so we went over there and on the back of a receipt, she had a phone number already written out for us when we got there. She also gave us some good Mexican soda. We contacted that referral and taught her in a lavanderia (laundromat). Her and her three kids just got baptized last week too!
It's nice to know that those simple things you do so often as a missionary will change into great stories.
Last story of the week. My companion doesn't know much Spanish and a Hispanic member of the Ward pulled me aside yesterday to ask me if my companion was "Talliban".
