Well, here’s the weekly update. Some exciting stuff happened this week:
Well, I have to admit that this week has been pretty spectacular, with the exception of one thing that happened today. But, I’ll explain that a little it later on.
Anyway, this week I did very many exciting things. First of all, I met one of my brother’s fellow missionaries, and it happened in a pretty exciting way. My companion and I were walking in front of some houses when he asked me if I had ever seen Indiana Jones. Well, I, of course, responded, “Are you joking?” Anyway, shortly thereafter we started whistling the Indiana Jones theme.
After about a minute of that, we had a man behind us shouting at us. He wasn’t wearing any shoes, and looked like he had recently been lounging around in his house. Anyway, he came up and told us that he had been reading about the Tree of Life when he got annoyed that someone outside was whistling. Then he saw that it was us, and realized that he wanted a blessing. So, he went out to stop us. Anyway, he served in Spokane, Washington, where Ryan served, and Ryan was in his last zone before he left. So, that was pretty cool.
Anyway, we also did a ton of other exciting stuff, especially including having some incredible lessons, having a man who had no idea what he was talking about try to disprove the gospel, and had a man who was high on Cocaine give us the phone number of the Arizona Department of Workforce Resources, telling us sincerely that it was his.
But yeah, that about sums it up. Really good, fun stuff! But yeah, we have an investigator family who are very interested in everything about the church, and they’ve noticed differences in their home since we started visiting them. We plan to commit them to get married (yeah, they’re not married) soon, and then soon after to Baptism.
They’re great people, and they ask a ton of questions, which is always great!
Anyway, that’s all great good news.
As for some other news, regarding what happened this morning. I went to see an Orthopedic Specialist this morning, and, well, needless to say, he wasn’t very optimistic about my whole ‘wait until the end of my mission’ to have my shoulder operated on. So, we’ll see what happens with all of that. Keep praying.
Oh, yeah, we also went to the Temple on Saturday morning and I did my first session in Spanish! How great is that?
But yeah, that sums up the week! Everybody enjoy!
