Missing My Summers

Honestly this week was rough, I just wanted to do fun stuff all week. Adding to that we had appointments with investigators fall through and other lessons where our members canceled on us. But that's all part of the mission.

A veces Satan√°s le gusta molestarnos con tentaciones. On the contrary we did have some good experiences this week. Two weeks ago a man named Juan Lopez showed up at church with a semi active member. So we went and taught him with that member last week. Then this week, the member called us telling us that he was with Juan and that he wanted to talk. Juan told us that he wanted to be baptized right away. It was a well timed blessing for me from the Lord because I was just having a rough day. Reminds me of a scripture. Alma 26:27. It's hard teaching Juan because the member doesn't really know the gospel and my companion doesn't speak Spanish. However Kudos to this member for bringing his friend to the church. Turns out Juan's son had visited with missionaries before and is excited to be taught as well.

We had some other crazy experiences this week. We knocked into a woman's house who had a full beard and taught her a lesson. It was strange because I had seen the woman earlier that day and briefly talked to her at a place where we do service.

Sad story of the week: one of our investigators that we had previously felt suspicious about turns out to be in a homo sexual relationship, so that makes things extra difficult.

We went to the temple with one of my favorite members Brother Liggett this week, it was awesome. Brother Liggett's wife works at the temple and she showed us all the VIP stuff.

Love y'all
