This week has been slow lesson wise, but the lessons we did have were really good!
We knocked into a lady names Gisela (Hisela) and she was kind of iffy, but her son really wanted us to come back. So we set an appointment. We went and couldn’t find the house cuz I wrote the number down wrong. But then we found it and Gisela and her Son (Xavier) were sitting on the couch waiting for us. Started getting to know them, the son had seen a movie with a bit about the second coming and he was scared. He wanted us to come back cuz he didn’t want to burn at the second coming. Then Gisela told us she had a miscarriage about 10 years ago. Xavier says sometimes he wants to die to go see his brother (the miscarriage) so we went right into the plan of salvation. It was super cool and they completely understood it. Come to find out the dad used to go to our church in Texas. But then they moved here and didn’t do it anymore. Her daughter, Deseree (Z) also sat in. They all committed to pray about the plan of salvation and we have an appointment for this week.
Also had a really good lesson with Carlos and Elizabeth. We have transitioned into having them teach themselves by asking good questions. It’s really cool to see them learn. Carlos sometimes still has trouble with the Godhead, but we are working on it.
Sad news. We knocked on Bertin’s door and when they opened it there was a whole bunch of Hispanics sitting on the couch. Some guy leans around the door and kind of ornery says, "We are having a bible study right now." Bertin comes outside and tells us thanks for everything we have done for him, but he is with this church now and so he doesn’t need us anymore. SO that is sad. But he’s super friendly and we told him we would stop by to see how he is doing occasionally.
It was a pretty good week. I love teaching lessons when the people just understand it, so cool!
