Welp! I will warn you now. This will be kinda short because I'm a sicko and don't wanna write a ton. So!! That's that!! 😁
This week was good!! We went to see Taylor a less active. That was quite the lesson..... so he doesn't really believe in God. What really appealed to him was the chaos theory. Where things just happen for no reason.. 🤔 it was interesting to talk to him. All was great and the spirit was there until his mom came and sat in. She flat out told him he had no faith. And other things that were not helping the spirit to stay. It got a little heated. But we were able to get the spirit it back by testifying of the Book of Mormon and the Plan of Salvation. It was interesting... she told him that no matter what he chooses, if they were faithful to their covenants he would still he pulled into the celestial kingdom... even if that is true, there was a MUCH better way and time to say it.... it was pretty interesting... we both felt like we should just not go over again this week because we don't want to cause contention. It seems to me that he is not ready yet. He needs to go through some things in life to really have his eyes opened. But he was also super kind and good to talk to.
Then we had a lesson with Blair! It was a really good one! Here's the lesson report:
"We followed up with the Word of Wisdom. She said she has been living it! Woo!!! We talked about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Talked about the Atonement, she didn't know what it meant. Shared the post analogy with repentance. She asked about baptizing little kids. She said it didn't really make sense to her. Invited her to read Moroni 8 about that. Then talked about the Sacrament and shared the blind fold analogy, she said that made a lot of sense. Then we invited her to pray about a date to be baptized. She said she had thought about it and she's really scared because all her life everything good has been taken from her. She said she loves what she has learned and wants to be a part of it. But she is just worried. So we invited her to pray. It was a REALLY good lesson. We all felt the spirit. She is coming along really well. 😊"
Then we also taught Maria who is Spanish. That was interesting. We were glad we had Hermana Perez with us. She's fluent and is well seasoned in the gospel. For me and Baum it was definitely a relief. It was good though. She is progressing towards her date too. ☺️
We met with Julisa and Blanca. The first time, Julisa didn't open the door because she can be super shy, haha. But we just talked to Blanca and went back another time to teach them the Word of Wisdom. We also changed Julisa's date to February! Yes.. my birthday. 😁 that's the date that she wanted so we rolled with it.
We also did some Young Single Adult finding and stuff. Taught a few people here and there. It was good!
Then we had Stake Conference! It was super good too! They talked about faith, temples and missionary work. ☺️ It was really good. Becky and her boyfriend, Maurice came to that. We are working with them too. Maurice has come to church and he is super vocal in class and fits right in. Sooo we will hopefully start teaching both of them. We are also going to help Becky stop smoking. We talked to her about that and she said she would have an answer whether she wanted to do it or not. So!! Hopefully that goes well!!
We "practice taught" with a less active named Abish. She came home from her mission early and she has completely kinda fallen off the face of the Earth. So it was good to practice in Spanish with her. She told me at the beginning that my Spanish was really good... so that was cool! Ahah. ☺️ The gift of tongues is real! But we will be working with her every week to get more practice in Spanish.
Welp! That was pretty much the week!! Thanks for your prayers and support. I feel their power daily. ☺️
Love you all! Have a great week!
