Where to start with this crazy week...
First off we had a chance to talk with hermana Angela again. Shes the landlord of our house that dropped us a little while ago because she talked with her pastor. But, she has been getting into it with us again. This week we had a great lesson with her. She has a lot of piercings on her body... all up her ears. So, we decided to talk about temples and the law of chastity with her. We told her that our bodies were considered temples to god and that they should be treated like something sacred. She stopped us about halfway through and started to take out her earrings.... crazy right.... the only problem was that she couldnt get them out.... HAHA so... Elder Smith got up and started helping her after a little hesitation... it was kinda intense because she basically just handed them to us without any question. She had gages and everything. So she took them out and handed them directly to us... We still have them in the house in a napkin... haha it was a really weird, but very strong witness of how strong the holy ghost is. We put a baptismal date with her to be baptized on the 5th of july. Hopefully, this time, it will go through. Wish us luck on that one =) Shes still going strong but pray that it will stay that way. =)
We had the chance to talk with two atheists this week... it was probably the hardest thing I have ever done. They dont believe anything you say, so how do you teach them? If they dont believe in God, then they dont believe in prophets... if they dont believe in prophets, then they dont believe in scriptures so how can you share anything with them. We resulted in sharing our testimonies that we knew these things were true. They like to try to come back with us with the fact that humans evolved from apes and that its the science that runs the world, not god.... but my question to that is, Who created the apes then? Haha no one can answer that one. =) Yeah Im smart. On top of that, we met iwth a guy who believes everything... have you ever met one of these people? He believes EVERYTHING you tell him. he believes joseph smith, he believes the book of mormon, and that jesus christ lived. But he doesnt believe that Jesus atoned for everyones sins... only for his own. Man, some people are really tough to teach. If you can help me on a way to teach people like this then feel free to enlighten me on that one =)
I got food poisning twice this week... dont know what happened but it is the most brutal thing I have come across. Im alright now, still achey, but alright. Things are going well, and I am truly seeing how the fruits of our labors are coming into play now. We plan to baptize hermana Galilea this week even though she didnt come to church yesterday and hermana Michelle moved houses.... awesome. But we have a few people that are coming out of the woodwork and are turning out to be great investigators. =) I am working super hard trying to stay on top of all of this.
Sounds like things are good on the homefront staying busy with all youve got going. =) Keep it up. Makes time speed by right? I am doing my best here, just like always. Growing both mentally and spiritually. Stay on top of everything you do. I pray for you guys everyday and I love you all like no other =) I dont know how many pics I can send this week, this computer is really slow. Sorry. I will try my best =)
Love you all!
