So... it was a good week. Wednesday, our Sandy run day, was FANTASTIC!!! We saw XXXX, the 15 year old Elder Goff and I found tracting, for the first time in months. We knocked their door and his little siblings answered, they told us he was sick. We asked if we could say hi to him anyways. So we did, and showed him the Mormon Message, "Sanctify yourselves" by Elder Holland. The Spirit was really strong as we showed it to him. And then, after we had finished and were just talking for a little bit, his little brother came in. I assume he was about 5 years old. Our conversation went as follows.
"You guys should leave now."
"Because I don't want you here."
"Oh yeah? Well I'm bigger than you!"
"Well I can punch you in the qqqq!"
He was dead serious too.
The best part of Wednesday was meeting with Bishop Hoakenson of the Sandy River ward. Lemme splain to you guys so that you can understand how intense of an experience this was. I told you that we met with the Mt Hood Stake President last week right? President Morby suggested that we stop by him just to tell him what we were doing and see if we can do anything for him. He appreciated our visit and said he would talk to President Morby. That was almost 2 weeks ago. We decided that same night that we should pick a Bishop to meet with to try to get some people we could take with us to lessons out there. We randomly picked one Bishop, Bishop Hoakenson, of the Sandy River Ward. He just felt right. So this Wednesday we show up, we were a few minutes early because we got out of our appt with XXXX and figured it would be better to be early than late, so we headed to the Church. This was like the most inspired showing up early that I've had on my mission. The Church was PACKED with people who knew about us and wanted to talk to us.
Friday was President's last Zone conference.
It was a pretty somber meeting. Saturday there was this dance festival deal some of the Stakes put on so all day Saturday the whole mission chilled at a high school so that we could sing We are as the armies of Helaman 3 times.
|Not the movie for moms of missionaries to see. just sayin'|
And last but not least, yesterday we had an investigator come to church, a 16 year old named TTTT, and in the middle of Sacrament meeting he decided he wants to get baptized!! So we set a date for July 18th!!
Ok... that's about it... I love you guys!!
First week of June
Hey guys!!! Sorry I didn't get to email you yesterday... like I said we went on a 15 mile hike near Mt Hood... I have some WAY GOOD pics to send home when I have time next week. This week not a whole lot happened; We got dropped by another one of our promising youth again... That's kinda starting to frustrate me. But all is well. God gave man his agency. I do have a funny story for you guys though. And The main message of it is I HATE SODA!!!!!!!
