I got a haircut on Wednesday. Wanna know why? Cuz a member gave us a referral to his hair cutter lady and so he told us to go get a hair cut and talk to her. So I did. And she was asking lots of questions about us and stuff. I invited her to take the lessons but she said she’d call us. And that she would try to make it to church sometime.
So we have this recent convert, Ms. Debbie, who got baptized in April. Her 35 year old son takes care of her and he is not a member. He likes us though. Usually when we get there he prays with us then goes back in his room until we leave. But this week, he stayed out and talked to us and let us share some scriptures with him. He opened up a lot and we got to know more about what his issues are. It was cool too because Ms. Debbie said that she didn’t know a lot of the stuff he said, so it was good for her too. After he went back in his room we talked to Ms. Debbie a little bit and she started crying and she said “I know that we’ll be an eternal family someday”. She has so much faith that one day her son will accept the gospel.
We went out contacting on Wednesday and we found some pretty cool people. One lady knew someone we met last week who we will be teaching in 2 weeks. One guy we talked to was a construction worker and we talked to him while he was on the machine thing that fixes roads. We were like yelling cuz it was so loud.
We played soccer with some little kids this week. Well, I basically just stood there while they played around me cuz I didn’t want to mess up their game for them. Those kids are so good!
Sidenote: Details on the world cup??
Saturday was a rough day. Our bodies kinda just gave up on us. We were so tired and Satan was doing everything to get us to stop working. But we did what we could.
We got a referral from a recent convert in Tennessee. She sounds golden. We are just waiting to see when we get to meet with her. She said she feels like there is some sort of emptiness in her life. I wonder why….?
Well, I gotta go. But I just want you all to know that I know that the church is true. It’s where we can find lasting joy. Life is hard, but the gospel solves all problems. Live it. It WILL help. Jesus Christ is our Savior. He loves you. And so do I.
Love, Sister Watko
