That night we got to teach the Bishop and his wife lesson 1. We are trying to get into the member's homes more and bring the spirit of missionary work. So we are wanting to teach all the leaders the restoration to show them it's really not scary. It went well I think. They enjoyed it. We commited them to think of someone they can bring closer to Christ and to pray about how they can best do that. =) I think it will turn out well in the long run. Something will come of it... probably after I leave. =P That seems to be the pattern of my mission.
We did a lot of service. Planted a flower in a non-member's yard (which now isn't doing so good :P whoops) Then we went to a place called People Helping People and helped sort clothes and put them on hangers. Then we went to go wash our car while in jeans because the next day Elder Short was taking it and he wanted it spick and span. That was a really good way to cool off! I highly suggest washing a car on a hot day. We may have gotten in a small water fight. haha! Then we had to run over to the store to get some change to vacumm. haha. It was weird to walk into the store in jeans. I felt really out of place. Which is odd, cuz no one wears skirts in the store. Bought a box of Klondike bars, got some change, and vacuumed. A lot of work just to get the van vacuumed. And you probably didn't care. Oh well =) Later we taught our investigator, Colton, the first lesson. And he accepted to be baptized! It was fantastic! We are so excited. He is a golden investigator. So ready for the gospel in his life. We gave him a Book of Mormon and asked if he would like to start from the beginning or if he wants us to give him a chapter... he said, very excitedly, "oh, I'm going to go home and sit down and start reading it right now!" It was so cute =) He is 13 by the way. What 13 year old boy wants to sit down and read the Book of Mormon?? Or any book for that matter?
Wow, this is a novel. Sorry. I wouldn't be surprised if you are bored already. haha!
That was pretty much our week. I seriously had a lot to say. haha! hope you didn't get too bored ;)
Love you all
