Nerf guns, roaches and teaching {Miguel's Missionary Moment}

January 27, 2014

This week has been up and down, it has kinda been that way the last 2 weeks.  We had to drop one of our top investigators, Dorsey, he just wasn't progressing and it was time to move on. We are still teaching the Chinese lady named Jon.  She keeps every commitment she accepts but, we are struggling to get her to church.  She is apprehensive because of her English, but her English is great! Tonight we are going over with a member that speaks Chinese and he is going to invite her over to his home. We are going to extend a baptismal date again.  The last time she said she wasn't ready yet, but I feel she may be ready now. 

We are also teaching a lady named Lora, and she was a former investigator we contacted.  There was no drop reason in the area book, I guess she just slipped through the cracks. We had a really good lesson with her, she said the last time she had met with the missionaries she asked God about what she should do, and she felt she got the answer of obedience. We are also meeting with her tonight and we are going to extend another date to her. We ran out of time last lesson because she kept asking questions, which is great!  There is also an investigator named Westly we have been working with, and he has been reading the Book of Mormon everyday but he kind of doesn't understand there is only one church.  We go over tomorrow.  Last time we had a pretty bold lesson about "one lord, one faith, one baptism." He was going to pray about it. This week we had put a family on date but then they just disappeared.  We got in contact with the wife/girlfriend we don't quite know, turns out the man was kicked out but she is willing to listen.  So now we are going to teach her and her two kids in a couple days. 

I have never been in an area where people have so many distractions or with people who lose focus so fast.  It is pretty hard to keep people going even with daily contact.  I have been praying a lot for what I can do and haven't figured it out yet. I think mostly we just need to pray for those that are ready to progress and have a true desire.  I have been doing that for the past week and I have felt a lot better about the people we have found. BUT on another note...

Our apartment has a roach problem and it is being treated but it brings the bigger roachs out so we have been hunting them with nerf guns every night it has been uber fun! I hunt in my Georgia onezie so I can have protection. haha We think it is because one of our neighbors is like a pack rat..... so yeah gross! but this cool black guy told me I was chosen last night. haha then I told him I was ordained, oh and for Stake Conference here the entire South East region received a broadcast from Elder Nelson about hastening the work it was pretty awesome!! but ummmmmmm life is good!

Hamer out!"

Mosiah 4: 9 "Believe in aGod; believe that he is, and that he bcreated all things, both in heaven and in earth; believe that he has allcwisdom, and all power, both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not dcomprehend all the things which the Lord can comprehend."

  1. Roach problems aren't fun, but it looks like you've turned it into some. Hunting with nerf guns sounds like a fun way to handle it.
