Another door down, another door down, another door in our face...

That was the theme for this past week for us. But it was not bad. It was really hot though,but we had cool experiences knocking doors. I found this area is allot like gainesville, in that we knock allot of doors. the only difference though is there are no Hispanics! So i feel kinda bad for my companion, i try to control my self but when we run into a Hispanic person i just wont shut up! Then at dinner we eat with the other set of missionarys as well and one is a native, so me and him just blabber away with the members. This area would be super sweet if we can just find another part of town were Hispanics live. I ask them where might be a good place to find them, but they never know. I swear sometimes they dont know anything.

I cant believe she is engaged, i tryed to get her to write an Elder out here. But now she is engaged. I wish we could go camping, that is something that will be awesome to do when i get home. Also snowboarding, it will be getting to be about that time of the year.

One of those experiences i said was with this one guy. So we were knocking doors and we were going up to the door and before we even got there he opened the door and said " I dont want anything to do with the Mormon religion... yada yada yada" He was like 10" from my face and i just stood there with a big smile and just let him go. He finished and wished us good luck and then said "And i appreciate the enthusiasm" My companion was very annoyed with the guy, but i did not care what he said. He has his choice. But then again we went back to the area to finish knocking. As we were going we saw him out side, then he called us over again. My companion did not want to (He was still upset with the guy) But then we talked to him and everything, and by the end he ended up being a cool guy. Not at all interested in what we had to say, but super sincere and cool. So we shared some laughed and then moved on. For me it was cool because i left an open hart for what he had to say and just listened and someone we thought to have been mean, really was a cool guy. Not interested in the slighted but still cool.

We also meet the new mission Prez this past week. He is a very loving person. And they have had allot of experiences that brought them to that point. The father of the 'Mission Mom" was blinded in WW2 but still went on to live an awesome life. They also have a daughter who is handicapped since birth, and to top it off they lost their grandson to Cancer 2 years ago. They are a very loving couple and im excited to of got them as my new mission presidency.
