Well... these past two weeks—sorry for no letter last week—I was doing a lot of things for college [admissions] and did not have time to write a whole letter.
These weeks have been like a rollercoaster in the mission, honestly, from investigators accepting baptism, to investigators throwing us out of their house... these weeks have been interesting for sure!
Let me start from the beginning:
Last, last week, so two weeks ago: We showed the long Joseph Smith movie to a group of our investigators, they are a group from ages 5 – 13. It is interesting, haha, and they all loved the movie, they all prayed about it, and all felt very calm. It was pretty sweet; they are reading the Book of Mormon, and feel like it is true... now is the time to capture the parents! That is the goal for this week.
Yeni quit her job this past week, so we are able to teach her again! And we are super happy about that. We taught her the Restoration lesson yesterday with a member present and it went soo well! She understood everything and believed that Joseph Smith was a prophet and she accepted to pray about it! We are visiting her tonight and we will see how her prayer went. We are super excited for her.
Well now for the bad part, haha . So this past Thursday we went to visit Lucy and Fatima, our investigators. When we got there they hadn’t had a very good day and were a little bothered by each other, but we started to teach a little. The spirit came after singing a song and praying, but after a few minutes the mom, Lucy, started to complain and talk bad about Fatima, her daughter. We started to talk and talk about the patience and a whole lot of stuff, Christlike stuff, and all of a sudden, out of nowhere, Lucy stood up and started saying a bunch of not so friendly things at us and told us to leave her house and she stomped off to the other room. We left Fatima with a prayer and left the house. It was very sad and very unexpected. We left that house and had no idea what to think. We were and still are super confused with what happened in there, we have no idea, but it was a hard couple days after that.
But all is well, these are mission experiences, right?
But!!! Last week we had our zone conference with Pst and Hermana Svec and it was sooo good, so spiritual and honestly I learned so much.
This past week I have been studying a lot about the Holy Ghost and its role in our everyday lives. I can honestly say that without it, I would not be who I am today.
I love this gospel and I am very happy to be a representative of Jesus Christ and work in his vineyard.
