2.11.13 Missionaries Grow Up So Fast...

Wellllll this week was crazy....
The week started off amazing.
 We found a family that is prime for baptism.  We taught them and commited them to baptism.  THey said yes and committed to go to the church the next day.

We received a celestial reference.  This woman is ready for baptism.  Ive never seen someone so stoked to be invited to be baptized.  She accepted.  

We did lots of contacting and found many people who want to hear our message.  When we contact we always invite them to church.  So ya we had tons of people committed to come to church ...

   Then the week sort of when downhill...
                Not a single one of our appointments were there.  
                Not a single phone was on.... no one accepted our calls

We got burned by a member.... never seen an old lady so mad in my life.  The other missionaries decided to leave the area and go eat in another area and they never told us.  The woman had prepared lunch for 4 missionaries.  We arrived to eat lunch.  The other missionaries never showed up. never told us. never answered their phone.  We got burned bad.  The worst part was that she was right.  Why didnt we confirm lunch for 2? she had prepared an amazing meal for 4.  She got even more livid when we would apologize so we stopped and just ate.  We tried to eat the most we possibly could so that food wouldnt be wasted.  So ya it wasnt our fault at all, but we ended up paying for it.... lame sauce.  In further news fry sauce is good with potato salad and rice and pork.... haha 

Sunday came along and no one showed up to church..... 

The only thing i can do is keep smiling.  Im not gonna lie but i liked satans plan better where everyone would be saved.  sometimes i just wanna take them out in the morning and throw them in church,,, haha  im just kidding.  It wouldve defeated the whole point to Gods plan.  But ya its all good.  Vai dar certo.  All will be well.  I just gotta testify and do what i do to find those who are ready.  haha well thanks for the prayers and support.  Support the local missionaries in your areas via references. 

Write me. keep me updated with your lives.  If you want me to forget about you dont write me. haha jk but seriously.... i almost forgot my first name the other day
