So this week was pretty awesome. I’ll tell you of 2 miracles first.
On Thursday morning we went out tracting. I was starving. Like super hungry. So we were planning on eating lunch at 11:30. But we told Heavenly Father that we wanted to teach at least 3 lessons. Well, at first it was a little slow, but then we taught this one super nice catholic guy. Then this other guy who felt bad for turning us down so he just let us talk. At this point, I was about to die of hunger. We needed one more and I didn’t know if I could do it. But Sister Heywood said, let’s just do one more. So we did. And we woke this man up from his morning nap. But he opened the door anyway, and then started to walk away. We were a little confused. But I stepped inside anyway. He didn’t have a shirt on, so he put his shirt on and then asked us if we were going to sit down. So we sat on his couch, told him who we were, asked him a few questions, and then taught him the Restoration. He is retired from the military and he has seen some pretty bad stuff. He doesn’t understand why God would let those kinds of things happen. But we explained to him how much God loves us and that we want to come back to share some more about that with him. So we are going back this week. His name is Michael. He has 6 kids and a wife, so I am praying we will get to teach his whole family!
On Monday we went to Brother Gleason’s to make rings. He’s the one that can only say “Buhtah!” Anyway, he is the BEST missionary ever. A lady came over to take care of him during memorial weekend because his daughter was out of town. And he gave her a Book of Mormon and told us to go visit her. Well, we went to go see her on Tuesday, but a man answered the door and said she wasn’t home. So we taught him instead and he’s a new investigator! He asks all the right questions and he is super curious. But we still wanted to get in contact with this lady. So we called her and she said she isn’t interested, she just didn’t have the heart to tell Brother Gleason. But he did give us that referral for a reason. So we could meet Don :).
We were outside ALL DAY on Saturday. We did lots of yard work and taught lessons outside. And I have nothing to show for it. I do have a little tan line on my feet from my shoes but that’s from a few weeks. I’m white….
Not much else happened this week. Brandon came to Sacrament Meeting again. Fast Sundays are so stressful when you have people coming to church. You never know what’s going to be said at the pulpit… It was fine though.
So the 2 new investigators we found this week are both men… I guess that’s what we’re stuck with. We will never teach a woman… haha. It’s ok though, cuz sometimes they are better to teach than girls.
Well, I’m off to milk some goats! I love you guys! Mwah!
Love, Sister Watko
