We had a very good week with lots of fun experiences! Hopefully i can write about most of them! But firstttt...Happy Birthday Carson!!!!! and Happy Belated Anniversary Brooks and Felicia!!!!!!! So sorry i forgot to include that last week, but i was thinking of you!!
WELL. This week was a good one!
-Rayon (pictured) and Jayden, Kim's kids, were FINALLY on date this week!!!! We have been working with them for a while and in the beginning their mom wouldn't let us put them on date because she kept saying they weren't ready and it was too soon. Now their mom is okay with it, but they are saying that it is too soon!! AGHH! They are only 10 and 8! The little eight year old says he is ready but Rayon is saying he isn't. They were on date for one day until we got a call saying maybe sometime in April! They are good kids, they have just been la little tricky recently.
-Kim is PREGNANT!!!!!!!! SOOOO PREGNANT! That baby is about to fall out of her. She should be having him in the last week of this month or early April. We are so excited! We had a beautiful lesson with her and with the Parrs this week. We talked about families and the gospel and the spirit was just really strong. I felt once again in my heart that this gospel really truly does bless families!! SERIOUSLY!
-Selo. I don't know if i have written about him but he has been studying off and on with the missionaries for a few years now. He is from Ghana and has not been an easily accepting kind of person. We have been thinking about dropping him, but with the flip of a switch he has just completely changed. 3-4 weeks ago. We taught the restoration and we were teaching about the priesthood (which is the power and authority of God that He gives to His prophets to guide His church on the earth). He. would. not. accept. it. He felt that the church made up the word even after we read about it in Exodus. Then we taught it to him again this last week, and he completely accepted it. No questions asked. Then in his prayer he thanked the Lord for the revelation he received about the priesthood. Night and Day. IT WAS SO COOL! He is sooo cool!
-We went to teach Jordan this week and I don't know how much I have written about him but he is doing awesome!!! 22 year old from Curacao. We showed up to our lesson this last time and he had gone on mormon.org and written down everything that he learned an liked on a word document. He presented it to us and had us read what he wrote and everything! It was so awesome!! It seriously felt like a little FHE. Romelio was there too and HE was the one asking US what WE thought of certain things! It was sooo funny!
-We taught Etson again this week and we were 15 minutes late to the appointment, which is usually on time for the people here! He told us we were late! He had been waiting for us! He is so awesome. We taught him the first part of the restoration and he understood everything PERFECTLY! Like wow. It was so cool to see the spirit work through him like it did. We weren't expecting him to get everything because he seems a little bit slow but we left very surprised. He is so cool! He will be having surgery on his eyes this week so that he can get his vision back so please keep him in your prayers!
-We were working in our contact area when we were suddenly surrounded by 3 really nice dogs and they followed us for like 30 minutes! Because they were there, someone came out and talked to us about them! Then he realized that we were missionaries and we were able to contact him. He ended being a very prepared man going through a lot. He lives in the elder's area but we are hoping that he will start taking the lessons with them. Right after we contacted him, most of the dogs left! It was just really amazing because God was able to work through our little four legged friends to guide us to someone who really needed Him. He loves his children so much!!! I know that to be true with all my heart!
Well, I hope you all have a good week of going out with the missionaries and fellowshipping less actives, recent converts and investigators! Read your Scriptures and pray to Heavenly Father!!
