So to quickly explain the title of my email. We had an experience yesterday with someone from the Pentecostal Church and the lesson went on pretty well until we asked her to say the prayer. She decided to delight us with the “gift of tongues.” It went on for AT LEAST ten minutes. Sister Roylance and Hermana Porter were both trying not to laugh, I was just plum annoyed by it. Then she started clapping her hands and swaying and then I saw the humor in it.
This week on Friday with the wind chill the temp was -25. I have never wanted to be dead so much on my mission before. I had hives everywhere! BUT it’s much betta now.
Hullabaloo is a word I found in the dictionary and found it humorous.
Hi there-Well I’ll have to say that this week flew by! not only the week but the whole month of November kind of just decided not to exist this year. October straight into December.
We taught seminary this week, and as it turns out none of the sr. boys are planning on going on missions. What’s up with that?? We taught about Jarom and Omni, so it was pretty eventful as you may imagine.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I’m grateful for you!
Today we went to Moses Lake so that Hermana Porter could buy a coat. The exciting news is they had a Staples so I was able to get my G2 Pilot pens in all the fun colors. There we had the highlight of my Pday we met a Mormon about to go on a mission to Mexico and he took 2 dollars off my pen purchase. It was just so darn nice.
Well let’s just go through the week.
Monday- We taught such a good lesson. It was with Maria who I have ish taught here and there. The first time I met her she said, “I have been talking to missionaries for 30 yrs there is nothing you can tell me that I don’t already know.” So anyways she was telling us on Monday that her son is making bad decision, and he knows better. Well Hmmmm Maria, that sounds a little bit familiar, kind of like how our heavenly father feels about you every day! And then we pounded her with the spirit and said, “Maria, you know. Your Heavenly Father knows that you know, and what are you doing about it?” Then in her prayer she committed to ask for time off so she can come to church and to read the book of Mormon. It was awesome.
Once again I feel like I have nothing to say. We had our Halloween party this week on Wednesday. That was really good, lots of investigators and less active members came to it. I really enjoyed it. Although you have to run around like a chicken with your head cut off trying to make people have friends and feel comfortable. Also I ate some good bread.
Well it was interesting to hear about what happened with James last week. Way to be a noob and not go to the doctor until you appendix had ruptured. But thanks for the letter maybe I’ll write you all letters this week or next week.
So things have been interesting. I wasn’t feel up to life for a couple days… but then I worked really hard to get over it, and then life turned around. So we went to zone conference which was pretty enjoyable and we are now doing member lessons as a key indicator.
We, as a companionship, printed off Elder Ballards quote from conference about the “one.”
“We are not asking everyone to do everything. We are simply asking all members to pray, knowing that if every member, young and old, will reach out to just “one” between now and Christmas, millions will feel the love of the Lord Jesus Christ. And what a wonderful gift to the Savior.”-Elder Ballard Continue reading
