To tell you the story about that…yesterday for dinner, we had a dinner with an English family. So I said the first prayer and then I messed and started speaking in Spanish but I corrected myself. And then in the dinner table I forgot a couple of the words in English! And then the husband said to me, “I can see that you’re losing your English. Is English your primary language?” Then I looked at my companion and we like DIED and we were almost to the point where we couldn’t contain ourselves. Hahaha! Because if you remember from my last area this hillbillie woman thought that I was Mexican. Hahaha! And she commented on my English and that my English was really good for being my 2nd language. haha. Now I was being asked about my English. It was really funny. We DIED!
When we were tracking on Saturday I think, this guy walks up to us and then he asks if we’re missionaries. He couldn’t believe it! He was totally drunk though! It was soo funny!! He wanted to escort us to our next appointment because he said that Ogden is not safe. haha. We don’t see any danger here btw even though people say that it’s really bad. I don’t see it. haha. He used words like negatron and negatory for no. We DIED! He talked about his imaginery friends. He was cussing up a storm but he was drunk. He wasn’t all there. I smelled the alcohol on him and he wasn’t walking straight obviously. His name was James. Haha
Okay so like the real business…
Yesterday was a BOMB day… we just find a lot of people to teach! It was so good! We had a lesson with a couple last night and we realized that the girlfriend is a less active and so we got the boyfriend with a baptismal date! It was awesome! I never came out of a lesson soo happy before but the thing is, we have to pass him off to the English Elders but we already knew that was going to happen. I’m just happy that he’s going good! The english elders in the area are really good so I’m really happy for them.
So like we realized that obedience is the way to happiness. I know that I talked about obedience before and that obedience brings miracles. So whenever we become more obedient then we see the miracles. All the time! Without fail! It’s awesome! I know that the Lord looks out. He knows everyone individually by name.
We met someone yesterday and she claims that she never seen missionaries and that she doesn’t know what Mormons are. haha. The thing about that one is that she lived in Salt Lake and Ogden. I was like what rock do you live under!? Hahaha but I LOVED that she doesn’t know anything about us! We call people untainted! perfect bc in utah everyone knows what mormons are and already have their view on them so meeting someone who doesn’t know anything is a BLESSING!!
Okay I LOVE you all! It’s good to hear that everybody is doing well! I love the Lord and everything that He does for me and my companion. He’s there.
Loving you all with all my heart!
