So this week has been really good and really bad at the same time. There has been a lot of good things that have happened, but some really awful ones as well.
This week got to be really cold again! One day it was in like the single digits but negative with wind chill. Talk about cold!
On Wednesday we were tracting, and it was bitter cold and no one was really interested. But there was this guy trying to jump his wife’s van, and it just wasn’t working, so we kind of went over there to help, but we were more like UDOT workers haha. But at the end the car got jumped, and he invited us in to warm up. We had a cool lesson and were able to help him feel the spirit.
Thursday was cool because we met some really cool people who were definitely willing to act on the message. The sad part is that they are here on vacations, and one of them has already left for Mexico again. There was also a cool lady from Columbia that we met, and will have a return appointment this week when she gets back from Florida.
Friday was kind of an awful day because we found bedbugs. It was so horrible. Apparently I have had bedbug bites for two transfers now. I thought the red marks were like poison ivy or something; but then we found bedbugs. So we spent like 8 hours that day cleaning the apartment and bombing it. But then later that day we went tracting in an apartment complex, and we met some cool black people who were praying for guidance right before we knocked their door. So we were able to pass them on to the English Elders.
Saturday was bad again too, at least for the beginning. We found more bugs so we had to clean EVEN more, and then set off more bombs. Then they still didn’t die so we had the housing coordinator come and spray. But it was an awesome day because I went on Exchanges with Elder Blood! He is probably my favorite person. We had lots of success and were able to visit one of his old investigators, and she was so excited to see us. We will now be working with her again and progressing her towards baptism. We were also able to visit some less actives that he knew and share messages with them.
Sunday we had a good day too; all less active work, and we had some good lessons. I love less actives and want to help them out so much!
Yesterday we had a good p-day and after a recent convert taught us how to make milanesa and guacamole. It was super good!
The work is progressing and hastening, I know it is. The Lord is on our side and we will further His work!
Love you all!
