Two Missionaries and a pastor walk into a nursing home...
So two missionaries and a pastor walk into a nursing home.... and nothing happens because the person they went to both see was asleep. I just thought it sounded like a punch line for a joke. The pastor was really nice to us though. When we went back to see the lady her family was there and the pastor. She said she has lots of questions for us when we come back.
One guy we tracted into decided to teach us about the Bible, and kept inching closer and closer that by the end of talking to him we had inched slowly back from his front door, across his patio, to the step, about 5 ft. He taught us for about 20 or so minutes we shook his hands several times to say goodbye, but he kept going. He was really nice though. When I would try to testify about what is important to me is knowing Jesus Christ is my Savior, he would say oh I know that, but do you know what this word in the bible actually means. It was interesting. One of our investigators said how she wants peace that we talk about. Another one said he isn't angry when he reads THE BOOK OF MORMON and days he doesn't he is.
One guy we met told us he didn't have a name, and he asked us if we belive in Jesus and we said we did and he said I'm sorry. It was cool though because by the end of it he was smiling and saying he believed in God, in the begining he said he didn't. He also told us his name.
We went to sealing on Saturday for a couple in our branch. It was so great to see a couple sealed for time and all eternity.
We had exchanges this week. They were good. It was great to see my friend from the MTC for a sec. Some members came with us to teach investigators. They were so great! They make such a difference!
It is so green here! There are so many different shades of green!! And there are purple, white, and pink trees everywhere!
An investigator came to church!!!
One member told me about the heat, "Wait till the summer you will die." ha but it is really pretty, There are tullips everywhere.
I love being here! It is really hard but I love my mission so much! I hope all is going well!
Love you all, Sister Mcdougle
