Week Ninety Eight





Happy late Father's Day Dad!! Hope that it was a good one!

This week was awesome! We had a ton of work and I don't think that there was a dull moment in the week. Two or three funny highlights from this week...

1. On Friday night we were all just chilling outside because we were on divisions with the zl's and all of a sudden we just heard this huge ruccous down below our house(we live on the third floor). Just a ton of noise and a ton of barking out of nowhere so we all stand up like what the heck is going on out there and run to the balcony. We look out in amazement as we see this huge pack of dogs running around in the street barking at random things and going crazy. We're talking about a solid 10 or 11 dogs here. So it occurred to one of us to go get my comps laser pointer and he got the laser pointer out and started guiding the huge pack of dogs around. It was seriously funny as heck. We had full control over those dogs. Then after a minute or two they just ran off into the night and we never saw them again.

2. I went on divisions with an Elder Ojeda! He's a super awesome guy and we had a lot of work. In one of our appointments we had a lesson with a really less active guy. Well, he was really offensive and he was trying to offend us for the whole appointment. We are both pretty experienced so he wasn't really able to make us mad or something, but there came a point in the lesson where we stumped him and he had nothing left to say. We just humbly invited him to pray again to know it the Book of Mormon was true and he didn't now how to respond to that. He thinks for a minute and then responds.. I have prayed to know.. and I have read the Bible.. and it clearly says in the Bible that the Catholic church is the true church of God. He said that with all seriousnesss! haha I literally busted up laughing in front of this guy because I couldn't hold it in. It was kind of crazy and sad and funny all at the same time. I just accepted it and we decided to leave him that invitation and end the lesson. I regained my composure, covered up the laughing and we left. Really sad experience to see when people go like that. I have a firm testimony that these things are true and it's pretty hard to hear the opposite sometimes.

Other than that we have had lots of success. We have a couple potential baptismal dates coming up and we're praying like crazy for them to happen.
This week we had 14 less actives in attendance at the Sacrament Meeting. We were super happy for that. Also 3 investigators came. Including us 2 we made up 17 people in attendance out of 48 in total. Super awesome stuff.

Have a good week.

I love you guys.
