My week was filled with lots of sadness mixed with happy times #thelifeofamissionary
So basically SATAN IS THE WOOOOORST. Seriously he had no chill this week.
So we went and taught the couple who were on date for the 27th. We get there and asked Shervonne how her Book of Mormon reading has been. She was in chapter 9, so we talked about it. Then we asked Norman. He said he was done reading it, then ranted about how it's not true, and ranted about Joseph Smith, and a bunch of other things that broke our hearts completely. Bottom line is, he was excited for his baptism and went to do more research 🙃 Our job is not to force people into anything so we bore our testimony (which led to tears flowing) and left. We cheered ourselves up with Texas Roadhouse. Also while walking in we were talking about the country music that would be playing and I said too bad Tswift isnt country anymore. Then while we were eating Our Song played and I kid you not it was louder than any other song that played. (':
The next morning Sister Christensen and I literally felt like we had been dumped. It was worse than high school😂 Nothing hurts worse than when someone you truly love gets deceived by Satan. Seriously h8 that guy. But it's okay because the next day we had interviews with the Alexanders like hello perfect timing.
President told us to fight Satan one on one so that's exactly what we did 💪We went back on Saturday and it was like literally so different. There was no spirit of contention, it was calm and we were oh so confused. But good news!! Norman still doesnt agree with Joseph Smith, BUT he is willing to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it. We can work with that. So no baptism this week but it's okay. And they came to church! So take that Satan! 👊
Sunday we found 2 new investigators, a brother and a sister! So thats exciting! Then I got to talk to my family❤❤❤ I love them SO much. And I only cried once! Wahoo!
