March 2, 2014

Cumming is in my area now, its more north of where we usually work but we could always go there. Im still in car. there are no Spanish biking areas in the mission. Bikes are really only for exchanges nothing else.  You two can go ahead and be sealed its fine with me, ive seen a sealing now so its all good. Man he is so lucky to be going to mexico, i want to be in a county were i dont have to speak any English, i would be able to learn even faster. cause even if we try we are going to speak English. Because not everyone we knock into speaks Spanish. and all the meetings are in English.

 This we had our share of trials and hard times here in the mission. With all the success we have been having it was about time for the hard times to come rolling in. the beginning was great! On Pday last week we had to go teach a lesson at the Mall of Georgia at 10. We did not want to do that on a Pday but we knew we would be blessed if we did. And we were. Her Name is Rosi Valoria. She is from Columbia, she has 2 special needs kids and on other child. They are all older and down in Columbia. She wanted to meet with us cause she went to the church one time down in Columbia and liked what she felt. she said she used to only believe in science. But she told us her life was always in turmoil because she was far away from God. She she told us anything we tell her she is going to believe, because she needs to find God and she also accepted baptism for the 29th of March. Then we meet Tulio the next day, he is from Dominican republic. He has had a crazy life, he showed us his scars from when he got shot when he was down there, he has a really cool accent that can be had to understand at times but it is good practice. He really love the First Vision when we said it. The coolest part though is that, the only reason he wanted us to come over is because he remembers how in his country the Missionary's were so nice and would help him out when he needed it. So by their example we are able to teach him and help him progress. He also accepted baptism for the 29th of March. Both of them came to church as well yesterday. Rosi canceled out on work because she felt like it was more important that she went to church than work!!

The end of the week how ever was a trial, Saturday ALL of our appointments canceled on us, when we were driving our tire popped as well, so we had to put the spare on and drive to pep boys and wait two hours to get a new tire. Then yesterday the worst part. We have been teaching two grand daughters of some of our members, they were going to get baptized this Saturday but everything feel though. they have been having some struggles at home in the family and then the younger one told there mom that the older one had a boyfriend and that he is a guy from church. So the mom took it as though she just wants to go to church to see guys. We called the parents last night to talk to them, then father said that they need to take a brake and let the family settle everything that is happening. SO we lost those two for now, but we will keep praying. A cool thing that happened though that while we were just leaving the door step of our canceled appointment there was this Hispanic guy standing at the end of the drive way. He started talking with us! he said he went to the church several times back in Texas, but then he moved here and he does not know where the church building is, so we gave him a card and he said he could not come this Sunday but the next one. We did not get his number but he said he would give us a call later on this week!
