This week went swell. I would have to say it went good because just some good ol stuff happened this last week. to start off we had a baptism, i gave away a Bible and im pretty sure one less active is part of selling illegal drugs.
to start off i want to write about the baptism that we had this week. his name is Atzin and it was an amazing experience to be able to work with him and his dad. but his dad still is not able to be baptized because he is not married to his wife. but we have been working with Atzin for quite a while and he has really enjoyed all that we have taught him. the church still has not bought any gas so we baptized yet again in cold water :D:D i am not sure how we dont have gas to heat the water for the baptisms cuz dont we want the new members to have a "warm" welcome in the gospel??
the bible that i gave away this last week was to the Atzins dad. in his house he has a bible from the jehovah witnesses. i was trying to teach him that he really should get any other bible that he wanted except that one cuz they have made so many changes to that one. once he realized that they had changed so many things and he really did want to get one of the bibles that the church prints out. and so this last week we went to the temple so that we could get flu shots. and while we were there we went into the store so that we could buy some of the things we needed. and i saw a bible and i thought that i should buy it for Atzins dad. but i doubted my thought! then right as we were about to leave i "felt like i should buy it for him again", and i just thought... yeah what the heck. so i bought him the bible and we went on our way not thinking very much of buying it. and i was just thinking that i was going to give the bible to him like it was nothing and he was just going to thank me because he didnt have enough time to go and buy a bible. but that is not how it turned out to be. we went to his house and he opened the door and told us to come on in. and as i was passing through the door i told him that i had i gift for him. hah! that gave him a good laugh and when i gave him the bible he grabbed it with both hands and told me just how much this meant for him. he almost started to cry he was so pleased. i just gave the good ol man a hug as i was as pleased as he was that i had listened to my prompting to buy him a bible. I told him that i was always there for him and that if he needed anything that he can call us and we will be right there to help him. so many times we dont know if it is our own thought or one given to us from heaven, obviously this one was one from heaven and not my own. this was probably the most spiritual thing that happened the entire week. no matter how small, follow!
and the last thing that i wanted to talk about would have to be the less active that i think is taking part in selling drugs. he is in a wheel chair and he always has two brohams that look like thugs behind him and one of them always calls me "homies" as we pass by. but i always have had this suspicion because i wondered how he got all of his money and paid the bills and stuff and he is always having people come up to him and talk to him about "the stuff that they will bring by later". which if you ask me is a little weird. and to top it off me and my comp were walking by him and his bodyguards and they were not in their normal spot. they were out side of a building and one of his brohams was in side and he looked at us and just as normal was WAY HAPPY to see us but this time when he waved to us he was waving with a gun. and i was just thinkin to myself.... what in the world is that man doin.... i am assuming it was nothing good (if you know what i mean) but... yeah. that was interesting to see the man that i think is already sketchy to have him wave a gun at you as you walk by. i have decided it is good to have friends low places too.....probably why he is too busy to come to church with us:D:D:D
talk to you next week,
