Hahahahaha When You said tubing, my mind automatically went to white water tubing. This week was so hot, I forgot that its winter there!
, I got a box from Grammy Diane, and I got some letters!
This week we have been working alot. Its getting really easy to make contacts with people on the street. I usually just give them a pass along card and judge from their attitude or the spirit if I should ask for their address. That has been working out pretty well the past couple of days.
We have had some rough luck with some of our investigators, and really good luck with others. We have been working with a few families, And one of them told us that they are moving, so we won't get to baptize them, and the other family has been going to a young life sort of deal, but for older people, and instead of a general christian belief, its organized by a specific church here in the city. So this next week we have some work on our hands.
This other investigator, we invited to be baptized this week and she accepted. We are going to her house tonight for dinner, and we are bringing this married couple that are members to share their testimony about baptism.
We have a couple of inactive families that are really nice that we are working with. We had a really spiritual lesson about the plan of salvation last night with them, their extended family, and friends. There were a lot of people, from a lot of different churches that believed a lot of things differently. But when they would speak, we would just read scriptures out of the bible, and the inactive family would speak up and say to their friends ´´nope, that's not how it is. The elders are reading out of the bible and explaining everything. just listen´´
I got goose bumps, because I had never heard this family talk about the gospel very much, or even show interest in coming back to church. At the end the dad said that he wants to start coming back, and explained why they left the church. They said that when they were preparing to go to the temple, a friend of theirs, who is a pastor, started telling them that what they were doing was wrong and of the devil. Anyway, they said that they lost a lot of faith, and they want it back. My goal is to get them to go to church, have the dad baptized his two kids, and have that family sealed in the temple.
Happy valentines day mom :)
I will continue working and praying for strength in this heat. Hopefully it will start cooling down.
Until Next week,
Love Elder Moss :)
