Wow it was so nice to talk to some of you yesterday! Ok so some highlights of my week!
Monday we had dinner with this super nice couple they are 20 and 21 and they had a couple of friends over. Well they asked us if we would check out the basement with them because they thought they had a squatter living down there and we would bring spiritual protection. Well if any of you know me you would know I am a huge chicken and I don’t do scary thinks like that at all. But We had to go down there and I kid you not it looked like the setup of a saw movie it was dark and creepy with a bunch of old furniture everywhere and hidden rooms (lets just say it was the perfect place for a murder). Luckily we survived and no one died!
Tuesday we had a Nerf war with a 10 year old for our dinner break and he kept wanting to make secret alliances to get the other person. But after our Nerf war we had an amazing lesson with Hamane! He asked us a whole bunch of questions and then told us the reason why he was asking them was because he wanted to be prepared to answer other people when they asked him those questions. He asked why don’t we baptize babies, Why we don’t have Crosses in our church?, and so many more questions like that!
Thursday nothing spectacular happened today except that my companion and I found poo-dough in our apartment. It was a kit to make Poo out of play-dough and it even had a poo shaped press for it. So we made it and we have no clue what we are going go do with it now.
Saturday a member and his wife took us out to this famous buffet restaurant that 3 president have eaten at. It was called Shealey’s and It was really good! We tried Fatback(hardened fat and super salty) and fried chicken livers. Not my favorite but at least I can say I’ve tried it and I will probably never go out of my way to try it again.
Sunday at church they gave all of the women for mother’s day flowers. My companion and I even got flowers it was so cute they had all the little kids passing them out! Then later that day we went to a members house for lunch and we all ate outside and my companion and I found out that my worst nightmare is reality! FLYING SPIDERS……. They have spiders that practically fly out here…. and they kept landing in our hair and on us. It was so crazy! But when you endure to the end the Lord blesses you! Later that night we went over to a members house and her daughter asked us if we would teach her and her husband because they want to be sealed in the Temple! It was so amazing! And completely unexpected!
Spiritual Thought: “If you’re not a full-time missionary with a missionary badge pinned on your coat, now is the time to paint one on your heart. Painted, as Paul said, ‘not with ink, but with the Spirit of the Living Got.'” -Elder Neil L. Andersen
We can all be missionaries we don’t have to have a badge to do the Lords work!
I love you all your all fantastic and amazing!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers that Have helped me in my life!
