July 27, 2015I am glad to hear you got all of my stuff!!! And that you are enjoying it!
This week we had some pretty crazy weather!!we had hail the size of golf balls and there was a tornado warning!! Scary right? We could see funnel clouds but they never actually touched ground. I should have taken pictures but I wasn't thinking straight haha:) The rest of the week it has been crazy windy and rainy!! Yesterday we walked to church (which is like 30 minutes) and it was beautifully sunny and then after church it started pouring!! And we had to walk to our dinner and we had no umbrella or jackets so it was pretty cold! We made it though and it actually stopped raining just long enough for us to walk to our next destination and the members were kind enough to give us rides:)
The youth in our stake had this really cool event called the Joseph Smith Encampment this weekend where they went out into the wilderness and camped and did reenactments of Joseph Smith's life. It was pretty cool and the last of it was last night at the church. They did a reenactment of the martyrdom of Joseph Smith and it was pretty intense!! It was pretty cool!!
Other than that we officially got another new investigator!!! Her name is Valory King and she was a former investigator who took all the discussions, pretty much, but couldn't be baptized because she was living with her boyfriend. We think things will be good this time around although her boyfriend still doesn't want to get married but I think we can change that!! She really isn't happy with her church and she wants to get married so maybe she will be able to persuade him to get married:)
Some of our other investigators we need to really talk with them about why they think we are coming over and let them know our purpose. If they don't have any intentions of being baptized we might need to drop them because we have to focus on those people who are ready.. It's hard but maybe it's just not the right time for them.
We are just continuing to look for new people to teach and we are really close to teaching a lot of people!!! The work is great!! I love it!!! I hope you guys have fun with Marlee this week!!!
