What´s up my family?!?! This week was good! We worked super hard. I stayed here in the same area as district leader still! Things are going super well here in our area! So many awesome and crazy expierences this week! It´s been crazy! First, we found an awesome family! So we were doing contacts one day and we did a contact with 2 young guys and marked a day when we could return and teach them and their family! We came back on that day and they weren´t there but their mom was. We talked with their mom and when we explained to her where the church was, she said, oh I thought we couldn´t enter in that church! and then said, I think God sent you guys so I could know this church! :) Best answer ever! :) :) Woot! That was awesome. We came back the other day taught them and there was 8 or so people there. Only 2 ended up going to church but the rest will next time. It was very awesome :)
At church, we were going through the first class and out of no where the president of relief society came up to us and told us that 3 women just turned up and were visiting the church. cool :) always like that! haha. So we asked them if they were visiting with someone and they said no that they were going to universal church when they saw this church and decided to enter! Sweet! They loved church and after church we went and taught them. 2 are twins and the other is a woman that lives in the same apartment area. We taught them the restauration and in the end I give them each a book of mormon and explain about it. Then one of the women says, I´ve read this entire book! Theres a nefi right? Nossa! it was crazy awesome! We found out that 2 of the women were already baptized in the church and now we are helping the third get baptized this saturday and reactivating the other 2 with their family. It was sweet! :) Kind of disappointing because we thought there was more to baptize but really cool how they had be inspired to enter the church and now are returning to church!
Funny story! Remember that guy who wanted to kill me at church? Well, ever so often I will see him while we are walking. He seems to never remember me haha. So the other day, we went to visit some people that we did contacts with. The girl went to get her mom and we were talking with her sister. We ended up just talking with the two sisters and we had to leave pretty soon to get to our next appointment. But I wanted to invite them to church and everything. So I was inviting them and everything when all of the sudden my companion says, okay well you guys can go tomorrow if you want but we got to go. I thought he was just worried about getting to the next appointment on time. I continued to talk with them, while my companion stepped on my foot, pulled my shirt and finally we left. as we were leaving he said, man, did you not see?! The guy who wanted to kill you was in the house! haha :P So we found out where he lives :) Won´t be going back there :P hahah.
Hey I thought of something else that I could use! I need a new electric razor! Mine is done haha, I need a new one.
Well, mom think how I feel :P 1 year and 4 months :P haha just kidding. I can´t believe Jonny is going on a mission! When did I get older? How was halloween? I saw a few things halloween related! So no package yet! But I did get letters! Brother minor (like always :)), David, and Hannah! so someone is working hahah. I really don´t know if there is a strike or not.
Man the presidential election that I finally care about and I can´t vote! I´m so anxious, I want to know super bad the results already and I have to wait! ah! haha. It sounds like you guys are doing great! Me too! We have a new assitant here and we are starting some new programs with divisions and such. It´s great! I love you guys!
