Well you read it. We had an investigator come to church! First one in five months! (:
I was reading this morning in Alma 8. Alma was teaching in melek and there were people literally coming to him to get baptized (like all my friends in South America who have had as many baptisms as lessons I've taught lol). Then Alma goes to Amonihah and is rejected and thrown out and spit upon (not too different from here). So what I pulled from this was it doesn't necessarily matter where you serve, but how you serve. Different areas have different levels of success. The same guy, Alma, served with the exact same level of diligence in different places, but had different amounts of success. We met an investigator named Matthew this week. He is crazy! He has two degrees, one in English and another in science. He started talking to us about some deep stuff. It was crazy. He came to church and had to leave about halfway through gospel principles. We walked him out and he asked us what the 7 deadly sins are. He just asks random questions all the time to test us to see if we know what we're talking about. He texted us this morning and was all po'd about some stuff he found on the Internet.. I went on exchanges with elder golling. He's from Ukraine. I love this elder. We've been in the same zone for his whole mission. He's never had a preparation day without me for the past 7 1/2 months. We were going to stop by a less active member, the pye's, and we heard someone yell for us to come over. It was bro. Versace, a guy who got baptized a month ago. He lives across the street from the Pye's. He needed help with his parrot because it was bleeding and he needed someone to help him fast. Talk about being in the right place at the right time! So I got to perform surgery on a parrot (: So we've only been getting fed like once a week, if that, and bishop got up on Sunday and said people need to feed the missionaries. Well we've got a full calendar this week (:
Love you All!!
Biking in the snow.
I made some mini scriptures
Performed a little surgery on Bro. Versace's parrot. His dog bit it and we had to hold it down while he cut its feathers off and put some powder stuff to stop the bleeding
