I’m writing a little late today because this morning we had to go to immigration, which is in the capital. We had to be in the capital at 6Ñ30 this morning so we got up at 2Ñ20 and on the bus at three fifteen. So it has been a bit of a long day. However, this last week want really well.
This last week we had some great lessons with some different investigators. One of the best lessons that we had was with Jose and his family. They are now starting to really progress. Two of his three daughters have attended church 4 weeks in a row. His other daughter has attended twice, and Jose, the dad, has gone once. Starting this Sunday his wife, who is actually just his girlfriend, does not have to work so she should be able to go the church. We had a great lesson with them about marriage. They have had some problems with the mom of Jose, so the “wife” does not really want to get married, but we talked about Indiana Jones, and taking the steps of faith necessary in order to reach the goal. Only their goal, is an eternal family and living with God and in peace and happiness.
Hermano Santos, Hermano Santos, what are you doing man! He has just about dropped off the face of the map. He absolutely refuses to get married, or even consider it. So, the reading assignment that we left him was Alma 5. Which is just straight sincho, sincho just means really really direct.
The scripture project finished really well and they are holding up really well. I bought shoe glue, which is kinda like a contact cement that when it dries it is still soft. They should hold up really good and should last me for the rest of my life.
The toe is healing up well, I still end up using crocks to work most days, which is funny walking around in all church clothes and then my pink crocks. Just kidding, at least they are black! Must people do not even notice, and the few people who do notice I just tell them what happened or make a joke about a new rule in the mission or something like that.
It sounds like Thanksgiving was good! It was just another day here, I actually totally forgot about Thanksgiving until a member was on facebook and said something like, "isn’t today Thanksgiving?"
That is crazy about the way that Scareboxes are selling! That is so sweet!
That is so awesome about William getting accepted, I’m sure he will do great on the last of the tests that he has to do. Next week I will be sending him an email. I also am planning on sending some more personal emails this next week so you will be receiving them soon.
That is so right about when people harden their hearts they are not going to have the blessings in their lives. We see so many examples of when people harden their hearts in the scriptures but also in the day to day choices that we make. I think we all agree that we are a lot happier when we make the decisions to soften our hearts so that we can have more direction from the spirit.
I had videos to send last week of the house and also of the church and then I forgot to send them so today I will attach them below. I love you all so much and hope that you all have a great week with your personal physical and spiritual goals.
Love, your brother and son,
Mom note: I am having problems uploading videos, so below is a snapshot of the outside of Garrett's house and the church building they meet in each week.
