So we were able to add a new 'gator this last week! Her name is J****e! She is a Buddhist but she knows a lot about Christian religion! We found her through tr acting and she let us come in and teach her! I had Elder H start the teaching so he can get practice with how to begin teaching and he is doing really well! She had a lot of concerns about the Bible so we answered her questions and then presented the.....drum roll please........BOOK OF MORMON!!!! She seemed really interested in it and is going to read it! We are meeting with her on Tuesday!!!
On Friday we got the opportunity to have lunch with a homeless man and his friends. It was a very different experience, but a humbling experience nonetheless. He told us to meet him at a restaurant and he would feed us lunch. Well we went and we couldn't find him, but then we went outside and he was sitting in front with a small harp. He saw us and he said "please come step into my living room" which was just in front of this restaurant! We did and he began playing some hymns on the harp, and I am not gonna lie he was actually pretty good! We sat and listen to him for about 10 minutes. Then he introduced everyone. It was Elder H and I, M***w (The main homeless man) and his two friends. It was really cool, because he wanted to share his talent with people and he was happy where he was. His two friends ended up being very interested in the Gospel and we were able to teach them all about the Book of Mormon and the Plan of Salvation over lunch! It was fun! Definitely one for the journal!! Teach when you find, Find when you teach!
We were also able to teach Ar***a, she is awesome her parents aren't letting her get baptized. But she still is doing all the things she needs to be a member of the Church her Dad is really against it. But we are just trying to help her understand that she needs to be patient. The Lord will Provide!!
Something that kinda sucked was our hot water is randomly turning off, so one day I had to fill a pot with water and heat it and then pour it on me! HAHA! I't sucked...That's the highlights for the week! I love all of you and hope you are doing awesome!
