This week was pretty rad! We are still struggling to find people to teach so we started tracting out our less actives and part member families lists. We had some interesting experiences.
Most of the week went by with no real events. However we did have interviews which is always so stressful for me. I would rather President just answer my emails then talk to me face to face. Oh well, anyway, they were good and I got some good advice for finishing my mission strong!
That same day we went to the Vogels for dinner and they made street tacos......SOOOOO GOOOODDD! Elder Kofford and I each had ten! We would've had more but then we might have gone into withdrawals. So this week we are going to start making our own! I totally advise you to try this recipe out because it is amazing!
On Friday we went out to do a lot of PMF contacting. We started off in the Southern part of our area! The first few houses nobody was home....ugh, great! We decided to head further south and we went to this neighborhood with a PMF family in it. What happen next was a total disgrace! This use to be mormon lady totally fell away from the church and was basically shoving us a bunch of lovely crap about the the false "Mormon Doctrine." During the entire time she was yapping, I was just staring at her with the face of complete and utter disappointment! The word that best describes my face is "Unbelievable!" Later in her lecture she turned to me and said, I am mostly talking to you because you look like you are really grumpy with me and then told me to read the bible so that I know that what I'm teaching people and that I should just go home! Thanks for nothing!
Anyways on to bigger and better stuff! We met with this guy named Jerry! He is sweet, (plus he is in the roofing business). We taught him the Restoration. The power of that lesson is so cool! He asked a lot of good questions to heighten his understanding, I love it when they ask sincere questions. He also told us that he has never been baptized because he never knew which church was the true one! Well that's where we come in! We invited him to baptism and he accepted to be baptized as soon as he knows it is true! Wahooooo! Pray really hard for him people, he is so close!
Sunday came around and we were invited into the Stutz house. We talked with them and we asked them if we could possibly teach there less active daughter and her best friend who is a non-member! Well, they excitedly jump on that invite. Right then and there we had another restoration lesson. The whole family was present and we shared our testimonies of the Restoration and how it has been a blessing in our lives! Ahhh so powerful! Please pray for Sawyer and Kylie. They were the ones we were teaching the most!
Well that was basically our fun filled week! Love you all!
Also way to go Karter for getting your mission call and being ready to serve the Lord and his people!
