This week has been awesome! So last week our Zone Leaders (oh yeah dad you asked about meetings... we have district meeting every week) ANYWAYS our Zone Leaders challenged us to contact 100 people within the week. Well initially we saw some unfair advantages because we are over only people from 18-30 and we don't really ever ride public transpo (there we go, another question) so we don't see a ton of people. BUT we weren't going to let that stop us. We contacted 101 just for good measure and it was so fun! If we had anything fall through or if we had an awkward half hour before an appointment we would just go to a college campus (because there are like 40 colleges here no joke) we hit the jackpot on St. Louis University freshman move-in day!! Haha missionary harvesting am I right or am I right. It was so cool. We would just walk up to people introduce ourselves and then start droppin straight doctrine! Jk (kinda) but it was cool. We were successful! We got a couple return appointments and even one of the people we contacted came to church! (I felt prompted to invite him, it obviously worked) so he's super interested! So that was a fun part of our week.
We are short on time because we're going to the City Museum today. Everyone has been telling us how cool it is, so we're going.
I'm so grateful to be here, so grateful to be able to feel the love that God has for the people here. Keep being missionaries at home!! I love hearing about your experiences.
OH YEAH I ALMOST FORGOT THE FUNNIEST THING. So we were asked to teach Gospel Principles with about 2 seconds notice. The lesson was on Prayer but the conversation started going more towards trusting that everything will work out in life and all that good stuff. And OH MY GOODNESS haha... Dad, sorry in advance. So I was talking about the last year of your life and how you went through these surgeries and a change of employment and how you always had faith that everything would work out! And I said "yeah so he had been a police officer for like my whole life, and now he does money laundering and it's awesome he's doing great and everything is working out" while i was saying that people's eyes got big and they were like laughing and I had no idea why. Then after the class my pal Humberto (from Nicaragua) asks me what I meant and so I was like "yeah I actually don't know what money laundering even is but he like tries to prevent it" WELL I DIDN'T EXPLAIN THAT haha now everyone thinks you're a criminal lololol I forgot to say "anti money laundering" so sorry!!! But i'm sure everyone knew what I meant.
Love you guys! Have a great week!!!!!!!!!
