This last week was ridiculously fast. I feel like just yesterday I was writing.
Monday we had a normal p-day and we played some soccer in the court of the Church, but only with two members and us two. It was way fun playing two on two. Even though Elder Jerson and I lost.
On Tuesday we had a meeting in the morning with all of the Zone and it was pretty good. After we went back to finish studying and we realized the house was still dirty and we had checks on Wednesday... so we cleaned it! I found a sweet team USA basketball jersey in the rubbage of our house. In the night time we went on divisions with members and went to teach our investigator Edgar and his wife. His wife was skeptical about getting married because, her Mom doesn't want to her to get married in the Church. We explained how its not the marriage of the Church just that the Bishop is a lawyer and can do it legally. We also helped them understand the importance of marriage and how it is a requirement to enter into the Celestial Kingdom. She realized the importance and they are going to get married on the 8th. We also met back up at one of the members houses and they gave us dinner. It was way sweet! Not to mention a pay phone gave us free money.
Wednesday was pretty good. We went to a families house to teach them the Plan of Salvation and ask them the 5 questions of President Monson. It's a thing we do in our mission and we have to do it once a day. The family was a family that we reactivated a few months ago and they were really into the lesson. The spirit was so strong in the lesson that it was incredible. We asked them the first question and they told us that they knew someone with a new baby. So then set up a day to go meet her friend. It was a good day.
Thursday we had our house inspection. They said they were going to come at 10:30 then that turned into 11:30 then into 12:30 and at about 1:00 they got there to inspect the house. We killed it. Our house was spotless and we passed the inspection.
On Friday we had divies with the district leader and his comp came with me to my area. It was a pretty good day. We went to visit a family of recent converts that only the mom isn't a member and we read the Book of Mormon with them because, they hadn't read it yet that day. It was a really spiritual experience. We also asked their daughter who is 6 to say the closing prayer. She said she could so we told her we'd help her and she did it. It was awesome! I also gave her a CTR ring cause, she didn't have one yet. And she is in love with it.
Saturday we went contacting with the family that we taught on Wednesday. They introduced us to their friend. She was really interested and we set up another appointment with her for this week. For lunch we ate huge hot dogs. It was so good. They are the same as the ones from the street but a little bit cleaner cause, they were made in a house. It was the best lunch I've had for awhile. We also had two great lessons in the night. We taught a family and showed them the movie "Together Forever". They loved the fact that they can live together forever.
Sunday was good. It was a usual Sunday we went to Church and everything. The Bishop's wife was teaching the Sunday school class and she called me out. She always says people's names in the lessons. She was teaching and she was like, "maybe if hermana so and so or elder white wasn't paying attention they wouldn't learn today" and I was like wow hermana I'm paying attention. We also ate lunch with this awesome family from the States that live here. It was great! We then had a family night with a member family and their neighbor. He liked it a lot and it was a really spiritual lesson. We set up an appointment with him for this week. We then went with the same family as Friday to read again. The wife who is the only non member and has a Baptismal date was really enjoying it. We went around to say what our favorite parts were. She told us that her favorite part is that she now knows that it was true. It was awesome. It was a pretty good week and I hope everyone there had a great week too. Babycurls I heard you're turning your papers in... Congrats bro! I'm so excited to see where you are going.
The Church is true.
