Tell everyone thanks for their messages and that I love them all. This week was alright, we did a lot of walking, and not a lot of teaching, but that´s ok, we´ve got some people we´re gonna work with this next week, and hopefully have a baptism. I´m glad to hear everything is going well at home.
That´s crazy about the guy in the drive through. I wonder what people think when they do stuff like that, it just doesn´t make sense. (Eric was hit by a drunk driver in the a drive thru but luckily all was good, no injuries.)
I´m glad to hear you had a good week. My week wasn´t as good as last week, but it was still good.
Last monday, we received a bunch of references, because the whole zone came and walked around and contacted people in our three of the areas up here including ours, so most of the week consisted of walking around and trying to find those references. In the end we only ended up contacting one, and we still have yet to teach her. She works at a hair salon and she works all the time. The two times that we have gone over to teach her, she either wasn´t there or she was cutting someone´s hair. It´s frustrating, but we have an appointment to meet with her later this week, so hopefully she´s their.
We also had one of our investigators decide that he wasn´t interested anymore, which was super weird, because at the last lesson we had with him, he was really interested. I´m not sure what happened there, but we have a member in our ward who had been working with him and going to the lessons with us and stuff, and he´s gonna keep passing by and checking up on him.
We also found a family while we were knocking doors about a week ago and finally got to teach them, they have 4 kids and are expecting another. They seemed interested and everything, the only problem is they aren´t married by the state, only by the catholic church. I think it´s crazy how many people are members of the catholic church down here even though most of the ones that we talk to say that they don´t believe the catholic church or that they know that it´s corrupt or that they know that there were doctrines lost or changed. We also found this old man knocking doors on saturday. He´s 82 and lives alone and apparently he gets super lonely, but he has really strong faith in Christ, the whole time we were talking with him he kept saying things like that he prays all the time and always is reading his bible and books about christ and stuff. It was cool. Except the Jehovahs witnesses apparently have been passing by and meeting with him and confusing him about stuff. I was surprised that the jehovah´s witnesses are so big down here. There´s churches for them all over. But yeah that guy was cool except he talked for forever, we were there for like about an hour and a half and he would´ve let us stay longer, but we were already late for our lunch appointment.
Other than that this week just consisted of a lot of walking. That map you´ve got of my area is right. I was wondering how big it actually is, That´s crazy that it´s only about 1/2 mile by 1/2 mile. Anyway, I love you, I hope all is well at home, and that you have a great week.
