New mission joke based on truth I discovered this week, on the mission we live out Pharaoh’s Dream. Receiving the allowance every 2 weeks we live a week of feasting and plenty and a week of living off of whatever storage we have amassed. This is true especially in this zone when we have to take the bus to get to District Meetings, 3 hours away…
I had pictures this week to send however the usb in this machine is not working currently. I will be sending my card back to you guys as soon as I get it back, I gave it over to the Second Counselor in the Bishopric who works with computers, our cards have been picking up viruses in these LAN Houses.
I am having to really kick up my game as Senior Companion now, especially with this new investigator Michael. Michael lives across the street from the chapel and plays American Football as a linebacker. He asks a lot of questions, but good questions. He is learning really fast and the questions he asks really makes us study. He recognized really quickly when we taught him about the Great Apostasy that he needed to be baptized by authority and asked how he could find someone who could baptized him with authority. We then taught the Restoration.
Yesterday Michael went to church with us and learned about the Word of Wisdom, we hadn’t taught him that lesson yet and were slightly worried how he would take it. As we talked with him afterwards he said he was going home to throw out the coffee he had in house. All throughout sacrament meeting he would point at people: the Bishop, the Priests blessing the sacrament, the Deacons and asked if they have authority to baptize.
I will receive a new companion this week, Elder G. Santos the same Elder I shared a house with back in Figueira, it’ll be great. Today I will buy a usb and start downloading videos we use in teaching because the DVD always breaks.
Hope all is well at home! Love you all.
