- We did, but we dropped them. There were two different people that were going to come, both of them told us that they didn't have enough time right now. But it was really intersting what happened with one of them. Because she has read part of the book of mormon, and prayed about us, and has told us that she felt the spirit testify to her that is is true. So it was kind of dissapointing when she said that she didn't have time for it. But as we talked with her, we testified about the restored gospel of Jesus Chris, and reminded her about the answer that she had received from the spirit. But as we talked to her about that you could see in the expressions on her face that the spirit was reprendiendola [scolded] because she had a smile on her face at the beginning and then you could see her face get real serious as we talked to her and we knew that she didn't feel comfortable at that point in time and that she knew that she really does need to continue preparing for baptism. But I'm quite certain that maybe she's not ready right now, but probably in the future, she will be ready.
This week was a pretty busy week...well every week is busy, but it wasn't your tipical week in the mission field. On weds. we called one of the members to see if he could come on exchanges with us. But we found out that his mother in law (who had already been bedridden...is that how you say it, when they can't really get out of their bed to do very much. But anyway she's been that way for about a year.) But we found out when we called this member that she wasn't doing very well, and it was very likely that she might die. He invited us over to come visit with them, which we did. then the next day, we found out that she had passed away that morning, they invited us to come over again, so we wen't over to visit with them for a while. Then the funeral was on sunday, so we spent most of the day after church doing things for the funeral.
I sent a pix of a rainstorm that we got caught in. Which isn't an uncommon accurance. We were on our way to a members house to teach them a lesson, and it started raining, so we decided to stop and get out of the rain for a little bit. Normally I just ride through the rain storm, but I decided this time, that the members wouldn't want us in their house if we were wet, and if we're knocking doors, it's really difficult, because nobody wants to let you in. So we stopped there for a while and thats where I took the pix. I'm not sure if the pix serves it justice, but it was raining really hard.
This week is transfers, but nothing is happening with us. I'm staying here.
