On A Wet Tin Roof With A Blower.....

Monday, Mar 13, 2017                                              Onalaska, TX

" We taught Patricia and she is a bit stubborn than we expected her to be. Her daughter sat in on the lesson and they were not on the same page, ha ha, but she said she will pray about her date and then we will check on her next week. 

The same day we went to a lesson and the person never showed up, so we went to this part member family who was in the area. We were told that he was pretty anti. We knocked on the door and he answered and immediately invited us in. He was super friendly to us so we went in. Then his wife came out and she was kinda mad and made us get out-in a nice way. She is the member so we were so confused. After that he texted us and tried to set up an appointment for tomorrow and he said that his wife freaked out cause the house was dirty-but it wasn't at all. So we are hoping to plant a seed.

We went to see this investigator and she was home but she didn't come out. Instead, her boyfriend came out who had too much to drink and wanted to tell us his life story. Then this girl came out of nowhere and she was high on something and they know each other so she wanted to tell her life story also but at the same time as the other guy so Elder Woodhouse and I had quite a time getting away. She kept wanting to tell Elder Woodhouse her story... It was pretty exciting... 

The next day we stopped by the part member family again. They invited us in and we talked with them for a while. We got along with them so good. We weren't talking about the gospel at first and then he suddenly says that he wants to learn more about the church. We offered to teach him and he said yes. They want us to come by on Wednesdays and he even offered to feed us. It was super cool. He loves us.

On Saturday, we did a bunch of service. I climbed on a tin roof with a blower and blew it off. Then it randomly started to rain. It was very sketchy trying to get down, ha ha. Mosiah 2:17, " ......When ye are in the service of your fellow beings, ye are only in the service of your God."

*The first two pictures are the ones we got from Elder Saunders when I asked for pictures. The last two were sent by a sister who was visiting the mission. So thankful for the extra bonus pictures.....
Fresh Eggs that some members gave us March 2017

His description for this pic, " Look how big the egg yolks are!" Maybe because everything is big in Texas?
