Whats up guys!! how has everybody been?! this week has been an interesting one for sure haha. not a whole lot knew, still working with a few people trying to help them as best as we can! its been really really rainy here in Shelbyville and Wednesday was a day to remember haha or probably more like forget! so we were on bicycles and it literally was a straight down pour all day long like literally it didn't stop raining the whole day. We didn't have any appointments planned all day so literally we just knocked doors for hours haha and because we were soaking wet nobody let us in! I think it was the first day in my mission where I didn't make it into a single house all day! it was pretty rough but honestly the day wasn't super bad! its like one of those days that just sucks so bad that it was kinda fun and amusing haha so yeah!
Other than that our week went by pretty normal! We met a lady named veronica and she said we could come back to visit with her on sunday so we went and brought a member named Mauricio and he ended up knowing her! She is pregnant and has a few other kids and Mauricio knew her Boyfriend and so we taught her the first lesson and it went pretty good! we explained the restoration of the gospel and about José Smith and the Book of Mormon and it went over pretty well! we tried to get her to say the closing prayer at the end of the lesson and she said she had never prayed vocally before and so we explained very simply how to prayer and she still wasn't feeling it haha so we told her we could each take turns and say a very simple prayer and she agreed and so we all said our own prayers one at a time and when it was her turn she just kinda sat there and closed her eyes and started crying(she had earlier told us that her boyfriend is in jail right now and is having some legal problems and will most likely be deported in the next few days) but she was very grateful for us coming over and told us she couldn't read super well but she would try to read the book of Mormon this week! so that's pretty exciting!
Im super happy for the Cavemen!! that's awesome! Coach Behm deserves some long awaited success haha
Other than that not much new! a lot of rain and cold weather here! but probably not as cold as Utah!
