This week was a pretty normal week. Elder Goldstrohm and I spent most of our time finding new people to teach. We met a family that was able to come to church and the mother is not a member yet. The best part was that the lesson in Sunday school was on prayer. So at the end of the meeting, we asked her to pray about being baptized into the Church. She accepted our invitation and told us that she would pray about it. We can't wait to go back this week!
Last week, I talked about G and the miracle of finding him. For those of you that have been missionaries before, you know the importance of staying in touch with those you are teaching. Well, it has been great that he is so open because he keeps us informed of his schedule. He told us he was not going to be at church this week due to a business meeting, so we are going to be meeting with him tonight. I am excited for the lesson we have tonight because we are bringing a Brother Bostic from the ward that we think is going to really be a great benefit. He is way strong in his testimony and has a tremendous love for the Lord. He is a convert to the church himself and has brought almost all of his family with him. Just to show an example of how dedicated he is to the Lord:
Last week he brought his sister and her four other family members into the church and was able to baptize them. Then this past week we told him that we wanted his help fellowshipping G into the ward. The day that the meeting was scheduled, he was run off the road by a bus and was forced to crash his bike on the side of the road to escape the hit. He ended up in crutches and busted his knee. But sure enough he is still coming to the lesson with us tonight! What great faith!? I heard a quote that I think really goes with this story- "Who is going to work harder today? Me or Satan?"
Well, I hope that you all have a great week!
Here is a picture of this random guy that was just running around in a dinosaur suit in the middle of the neighborhood chasing people. When we asked what he was doing, he said: "Just trying to amuse myself." Hahahah! #PeopleofTacoma
