What a week! Well it was crazy everything that happened but it was super fun! We had SUPER bad weather the first part of this week that President called and said we had to stay in. It flooded a lot of peoples apartments and so this week has been full of service! We also were on tornado watch like everyday this week! So its been FREEEZING! we had FROST on our window Sunday! Like never thought this would happen in the south! Its a different cold from the west because of the humidity, which to me makes it colder than the west!
Well this week has been sooo good! We got to meet so many cool people that are super excited about the gospel! One in particular is so strong! Amanda is 33 and has an autistic son, she tries all she can to raise him, but he doesnt speak. Like no words! Not even mom or dad. So she works with him 24/7. Anyways she was wondering why she got baptized into the catholic church one day and we ended up on her porch later that evening. Long story short she's working towards a baptismal date of Dec 12th! She's the one to pray for this week! Thanks!
Tracting this week was even better! So its been freezing, but hey thats not gonna stop two girls in skirts and 18 layers of shirts! So we go to see the country side of our area one day and the first door we get to, the guy is already waiting for us. He has the door open and everything. He tells us "yall must be out of your mormon minds!" We both look at each other and smile (we didnt know he could see how crazy we were from there! Guess everyone can tell we are) and say how are you today sir? He says "get your effing mormon butts off my property!" We smile and say "ok sir, you have a great day and happy thanksgiving!" we walk down the road just a bit and normally people like this make us just want to leave and go somewhere else. BUT for some reason we just started laughing and realized we hadnt said a prayer first. So we said a prayer, then kept going! We ran into so many nice people. We walk down this path to this little shak and we were a little nervous about it but then we saw the two guys and we couldnt back down now. So we talk to them. They both were a little drunk but they just made the reason why we kept going on that crazy mans street. Miracles happen everywhere!
Well transfers are next week so I wont be emailing on Monday, but I hope everyone has a great THANKSGIVING and eats tons of food! Enjoy all the family and friendships you have around you during these holiday seasons! They are what really matter! I love all yall!
