Wow, sounds like you guys had a good week!!! that would be sooo amazing if we would be able to do that!!! best vacation ever!!!! haha but IDK I think I'd still prefer surf trip... but whatever that's sick too.
This week was pretty eventful!! We took the subway today and some evangelical woman started singing and preaching in the subway. And she saw us and came up to us and started preaching to like everyone saying how were liars and we are servants of Satan and that we lie to everyone and that the Book of Mormon is a lie and there was like 100 people just staring at her yelling at us on the subway ha We didn't say anything and we were just quiet. Its so sad to see people like that. Because they are so caught up in there self pride going around yelling at the people to repent. but that's not what the gospel is about.
It was super sad this week because we had invited like 7 investigators to go to church with us and they said that they would go no doubt and we would go by and pick them up. We went by and every single one of them had an excuse and didn't go. It was super sad and it was sad to think that everything we did that week was so that they wouldn't go to church haha. but we still have hope for them that they will get baptized 14 of September so were looking forward to that day.
I have learned so much being in this sector. haha! I've seen so many prayers answered and so many miracles. I just really hope that the investigators can make the right choices and be baptized. that's the hard part about missionary work. we can only do so much and then its up to the people. because they have their free agency. Sometimes I feel a little down because I haven't had that many baptisms, but when we know we've done all that we can, we can know that the lord is happy.
I'm glad that you guys are doing sooo well I hope that you guys had a great week and that you have another one!!!
Thats sooo cool that Jaren's going on his mission!!!!
