Well.. I'm doing good. How is everyone at home? Did you know that my birthday will be my 6-months-left mark? Crazy.... Question. Is the series House over? I saw that it might be. I hope not. I love that show. I need to catch up on it when I get home. So you know how we're going to celebrate my birthday when I get home? Well I want you to save all that money, don't spend it on anything yet. Because I want a Chevy Camaro. haha. Seriously. I've literally fallen in love with that car since I've been out. I know I won't get one... but I love them. But still save the money so we can decide what to do with it.
Anyway.. “J's” back! haha. Well... kind of. We went back last Monday and like Friday. Had good lessons with them. They still want to progress and work towards baptism. And so we went back last night and talked to “K” and “J2,” and they said he hadn't been home since Saturday morning. So we're a little worried for that. Hope he's ok.
“A” and “H” are still about the same. We're kind of in the rut that we just go over and share a word and just hang out. They even refer to us as family haha. And like, most missionaries have the misconception of becoming friends with people, then baptizing their friends. Which, yes, is really good. But it doesn't work that way. Our purpose is to baptize people, and one of the applications is to be their friend. So we need to do kind of a reversal of roles with them. Which is kind of hard but we'll do it. Like last time we went over, they were watching a movie and she made us super good fried shrimp and fries. Ah. It was awesome. haha. We did talk about the restoration a little, but there were too many distractions. We'll do it though :)
We also blessed a super cool guy named “A” (2 of his little daughters were there too). When we ended the prayer, he pretty much invited himself to be baptized. We asked how he felt and he was like "oh I feel so good. You know in those church shows when the preacher touches someone and they catch the Holy Ghost? (which is totally false.. but oh well) I feel that. Man I wish I could have that all the time." Haha I know right? Perfect lead in to a baptism invite. He couldn't make it to church because he slept in. He forgot about the time change.. But he's preparing for the 24th. We're seeing him tonight.
Which reminds me. It was stake conference yesterday. It was really really good. President Anderson spoke first. He did good. After the meeting, all the baptisms in the zone (which is the stake) got baptized. There were 13. It was a really cool experience.
I still need to call CTR bikes back. I sort of tinkered with my brakes so that they sort of stop. haha. I ride slower and safer now. I'll call them when I'm done with this. I haven't received any cards yet..
Welp... I can't believe I'm on the down slope. Happened just like that didn't it? Crazy.. What am I talking about? I've got tons of time left :) haha i miss you all. I Love you so much!!
