Week 37 - Another week and a whole lot of fun
March 10, 2014
Hey everyone it so nice to see or names again!
Anyways so last Monday I injured myself again so Monday night we stayed in and iced, don't worry I went to a doctor and we are figuring it all out.
after I numbed my knee out so I couldn't feel it we went out and taught
3 lessons! it was the BEST, so we found a new guy named Robert walking
by the train tracks and he said all we have to do is give thanks to god
and we both testified of that and he asked us if we could come over Friday
and talk more about our message. He is SWEET. We then meet up with John
Ford and we talked about miracles that Jesus did in his life and how it
can help us today to know this things are true and that he can help us
today. and before we came home we ran into Scotty and we talked about Gods plan for us and how He loves us. Tuesday was a great day.
Wednesday. We met with John Ford who said he had questions about Mormons and it
was about the Word of Wisdom so we talked about that and how every plant
has a purpose. It was a pretty good lesson about the word of wisdom he
has a smoking problem so we have been praying for him and he has been
smoking less too.
my knee was very bad but we had our first Zone meeting and I learned a
lot about how to be a better missionary to other people and just serving
applying the Amron principle is what Elder Putnam called, just seeing
things that need to be done and doing it.
or this week doctor day.. so after spending all morning and most of the
afternoon waiting and getting looked at I learned that I torn my
meniscus in my left knee and alot of stuff is going to happen. Wooh.
after returning home and going to dinner John asked if he could meet up
so we could answer some questions about polygamy which has fun but it
seemed as if he is stepping away from the church now he also brought the
word of wisdom up again...
Saturday. Since we spent most of Friday
in Santa Barbara in the doctors office we went by Roberts and oh boy he
has been prepared he is a great man, we taught him about the Book ofM ormon and gave him a copy and he said he will read it cause he has
nothing better to do. Wrong reason to start I think but at least he is
Sunday. We talked with John who was acting like a different person to teach, it was
pretty weird but we talked about the Godhead and how God is a loving Heavenly Father. It was a pretty good day.
