One cool experience this week was we were contacting and I saw this couple sitting on the side of the road and was like oh we need to contact them but my comps were going to this house and I was like oh we will contact them in a minute. We were sitting there waiting for someone to come to the door and I just knew like this isn’t where we are supposed to be, we need to be contacting the couple across the street. This is fruitless. We then saw an old lady at the door. She couldn’t hear us so we left. I was like lets contact them and luckily they were still there. We contacted them and it was super cool. They were way positive and they want to change their lives and are going to alcoholics anonymous cause they want to change and become better people. While we were talking to them these kids come up and they were like yeah we were just waiting for our kids. So it’s a super positive family of 4. We have an appointment with them next week. I’m sure it will go good cause God doesn’t lead us to unprepared people. So that was a cool experience.
I love that part of the mission. You are always seeking to keep the spirit with you and to follow it so you can find who God wants you to find and who God wants you to teach. Missionary work is super cool. It’s done by man, testified by the Holy Ghost and directed by God. I’m loving the mission. It’s way sweet. Every day is literally the same, but the cool thing is every day is super good.
Hopefully we can get some people dunked in the next couple of weeks. We have some good possibilities this next two weeks so we’ll see. One bummer was we had a family of five, super positive, then the mom and the oldest daughter had chastity problems. We are still hoping to baptize them but they need more work. We were hoping to baptize the younger daughter and 2 super cool 8 year old twins but then on Sunday the older sister and the mom couldn’t go for various reasons and so the kids didn’t go either so they are going to have to wait a week which is a bummer, in due time we will get them dunked. We have a lot more cool investigators. We also found a few people that were old investigators but for whatever reason weren’t baptized, so that is cool. Now they are more prepared and more ready and already have times in church. We just have to teach them all and make sure they are ready and get them to church and then we can dunk them. Hopefully we can get them prepared.
I got a big bunch of letters this week again. They are just a little late haha so it’s no problem. I love you guys a lot. I have the best family. Everyone else was jealous. You guys are the best.
The mission is cool. The church is true and I’m stoked to be out here!
Peace and love Elder Rushton
