Hola familia! This week was pretty great. We had a lot of lessons with people and with our current investigators. The work is a little slow right now in Harding Green. People are just not listening to us! I hear its worse now because of the winter. Everyone is inside and doesn't want to come out. We are focusing a lot on finding people now. I was hoping that the members would just be super pumped up about the conference that we just had, but nothing has really changed..lame. Not even one reference. Come on guys! I feel like that's where we need to focus on right now. I liked what Elder Holland said about missionaries shouldn't be knocking doors because its a waste of time. And that members should fill up our agendas! haha if only... We have investigators with wierd situations right now. They are kind of stuck. One is a couple that has been living together for 10 years and they aren't married. The husband doesn't really have any interest in what we teach (although he did tell us that he felt the spirit and that he knows our church is true), and the wife doesn't really love the husband and doesn't want to get married..hmmm. She REALLY wants to get baptized though and she has all the lessons and has been to church like 7 times. On Monday we got them to agree to go reserve a wedding day with the government (they do it weird here in Argentina). But the next morning they fought and "postponed" going to reserve their spot. Grrrr...
One other guy has received an answer about the Book of Mormon, several
times I think. One was at the FHE we did at the mission presidents house. He said he felt like something was going to explode out of his chest as we watched the testaments and as we heard the testimonies of people at the FHE. Hmm.. He has friends and family in his other church and he goes there twice a week. He loves reading the Book of Mormon, but he can't give up the other church.. We've been trying to visit the girl on the bus, but she is never home!
I really want to check in with her and her experiences with the Book of
Mormon, if she actually read it or not.
Camp Helaman eh? Sounds fun! I remember that I didn't want to go at all haha. And I never ended up going because I got a job. yay!
Yeah, Langley left for Cambodia today. He has a crazy flight. SLC to LAX to Hong Kong to Cambodia. 3 Days of traveling! ALSO he said that he was chosen to be a model of missionaries with ipads and iphones in the MTC. They took pics of him and he will now be in the next manual of either PMG or an MTC training manual. Super crazy! He's Mormon famous now! haha. So first day of the Federal Way mission huh? That is sooo coool! How many missionaries are there? Also where is the mission office at? Austin got home? thats cool! Everyone is coming home that I know. Logan just got home too! I was a late bloomer thats why haha. Where is Tyson going to again? California? That's what I remember, maybe I'm way off haha. So I got in an intense battle this week with a dog. It was nuts. It ended up biting me. My first dog bite..grrr. We were knocking this door, or should I say clapping..and this huge dog came out of no where. It was jumping and barking at us. I picked up a rock to try to scare it, but then it just got even more mad. It dove at my shins and bit me, ouch! Freaking dumb dog. I was super mad, so I took this big rock in my hand and threw it as hard as I could at this dog. I totally hit it broadside and it ran of whining. Haha, I win! It was super intense and I barely survived. Good thing I'm awesome, no?
Well I gotta go! I forgot my flash drive at home, so no pictures this
week! Sorry! I love you guys!! Elder Wheelwright
