local event and they were trying to find something for us to do and
then they asked if we knew how to make coffee!! Haha it was so funny
especially because we were the only ones who even knew it was funny!
We ended up checking people in/registering them for the 5k race they
This week we also had zone conference!! It was good! They talked about
how to better fulfill our missionary purpose by being clean, prepared,
Friday night the ward also did a crawfish boil! They had so much food,
it was piled up pretty high on the tables! It was good, although the
crawfish was kind of creepy....haha but I was brave and ate one!!
Scary moment of the week, we knocked on one door and the garage opens
and this older lady comes out and shouts "LADIES! Give it up
already!!!!!!" Telling us all about how bad religion is....we just
kind of stood there like not knowing what to say, since we can't argue
or anything. She ended up being pretty nice, but that was so scary at
first. In those situations all you really can do is bear testimony and
leave. It's hard not to argue, especially with someone who really
wants to argue with you. Doesn't happen too often, but every once in a
while it does.
We had an awesome lesson with Tim and Tasha (who are getting baptized
this Saturday!!!!!!!!!!) this week too! We had some awesome members
come with us who brought the family cupcakes and distracted the little
boys so we could teach the lesson with less distractions! We talked
about overcoming doubt and fear, and there's a great talk on it by
Elder Bednar, "Therefore They Hushed Their Fears" from the April 2015
conference. One of my favorite quotes from it is: "We can be blessed
to conquer our fears and strengthen our faith as we follow the Lord’s
instruction: “Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not” (D&C
6:36)." Because Christ is the source of all love and peace! We are
just super excited for their family to get baptized this week!
I can't believe I've already been out for 3 months!
Hope y'all have a great week!
the pollen!! It covers everything, literally.
