Transfer Calls!!! I'm satisfying with Elder Witt in Atwater!! Heck ya!
Tuesday: We were having dinner with the Wilcox's and their friends Michael (son) and Terri (mom) Bray (some non member friends of theirs that are going through a really rough time right now). After dinner we watched a video about the Plan of salvation and talked about it. At the end of the lesson we testified about how Christ loves us and wants us to succeed. Then we invited them to take the lessons....THEY SAID YES!!! We're going over tonight with them at the Wilcox's again to teach the Restoration!!!
Wednesday" We went over and taught a lady named Kathy, she's taken the missionary lessons before and she can't seem to quit smoking...yet. We had a wonderful lesson that was really driven by the Spirit. Kathy was almost baptized before but she smoked the week of so she couldn't and that crushed her. She still badly wants the Holy Ghost in her life cause she has seen its affect on her children (daughter and son got baptized a couple years ago). We testified how Heavenly Father loves her and that she is a daughter of God and re-committed her to pray and become committed to being baptized!
Saturday: SO on Saturday...My companion and I both got kissed
*pauses for dramatic effect*
by a guy!!!
It was pretty awkward. So Elder Witt and I were riding in Winton when all of a sudden a guy pulled up to us and shouted, "THE PEOPLE IN APARTMENT #34 NEED YOU!" and then drove off. We thought about what he said, and rode into the apartment complex that he just rode out of to apartment #34. We got in there (by the way, it was the single most ghetto apartments I've been in yet. We were getting some dirty looks from people too) and found the guy that he wanted us to see. As we were talking to him, the guy that originally pulled up next to us drove in and parked!! He was buddies with the guy that he had sent us to!!! After we all said hello, the original guy that had talked to us from the car started asking us about our church. We ended up talking about the Restoration and after a bit we had to go and asked if we could say a prayer with him. He held out and grabbed our hands and we prayed. After the prayer he said, "bring it in" and gave us a hug. As he did so I was the first victim of a gross, scratchy goatee kiss. And my companion soon followed suit. It was sincere...we think..but still gross. So turns out I'm getting quite some action out here on my mission ;) HA ha I'll never forget that experience.
I love you all!! have a great week!!
