"Let it go...or eat it!" April 15, 2013


I found the Scripture that predicts my experience on a mission: Isaiah 28:20.
"For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it."
Yep, that just about sums it up, haha!!!

This week was a little difficult. We received a referral from some of the Hermanas in the zone to teach a family. We went and they were a little shocked and shy because we had found them so fast. We brought different members from the neighborhood to make them feel comfortable about the change of house that they recently had. They are all great, the dad is always looking to learn more about Christ and his wife and kids all know the new testament pretty well. They have 3 kids, 2 daughters of the age of 17 and 10 and the son is 14. We took the kids to church and they were a little shy, but then all of their friends from school came up and sat with us/them in Sacrament meeting. Then afterwards they all went to class together and they said that they had a great time. I just hope that the parents come next week.

Well the difficult part was that every other appointment of ours fell. We have this really good family and that's about it. Our investigators all need to get divorced and this can take from 3 months or more.

We went to one of our investigator's house (that needs to get divorced and remarried) and they were shoveling out dirt from a little river next to their house. Their dog was going nuts just playing and jumping in the water. If you threw a rock in the water, it would go and try to bring it out again. It would also go hunting for turtles in the river! It brought one out and the family kept it to let it go later...or eat it! It was a little strange, but whatever floats their boat. That dog was having a great time diving in and looking for turtles.
