Breakfast of Champions!
"You can either complain that the roses have thorns, or thank God that the thorns have roses!"
So this week has been a little wierd, but in respect to this quote I am choosing to look at it differently.
Yesterday was a little rough. We recieved a text from one of our investigators and she pretty much said that she didn't want anything to do with us and to please stop coming and teaching her because she isn't going to change religions. What´s hard for us is that she has received a witness of the truthfulness of the Gospel. She attended a baptism and said she felt like crying because she felt something that made her so happy. We explained to her that it was the spirit manifesting the truth to her. I think she would be more accepting but her parents are devout Catholics. She is 30 some odd years old and is afraid of her parents. I think its because she is dependent on her parents and they´ll stop supporting her if she is baptized.
I also spoke . Wasn't my best talk but I am improving! I thought it was a pretty good talk for having recieved the call from the Bishop Friday night. My topic was about the conversion. It's wierd to give talks because it's well ....just different. Not only the language but the Bishop gives you a general Authority's talk to study and you're suppose to use that as your basis.
We have a baptism set up for this Wednesday and . This wednesday doesn't count for us in our report because the girl is 8 years old. Her mom is a member but her dad isn't so since she is only 8 it doesn't count but it's still exciting and we are happy to be a part of her special day.
I hope the olympics are going well. As they say "Go for Gold!!" Go USA!!!
Love you all.
