We had a really fun week. AS you could tell!!! haha We had lots of good memories and lots of good missionary work as well. I love Casey cso much. We're buds. I'll go visit him in Louisiana some day. He's about to move there. That spider thing on my neck was a spider indeed!!! That is called a field spider. It was way scary getting the guts to put it on me. But its not bad. Its harmless and walked all over me. They live all over Houston too.
The work is going super well. We are busy busy and for good reason. The Tylers all accepted baptism this week for NOV 14th. They also came to church again and loved it. We had a bbq with them and then had a solid lesson with everyone at their place. They are still liking church and coming every week. I cant wait for you to meet them. They are hilarious and the most non member Mormons I've ever seen. They're ready to get dunked. We had a good lesson with them after biking up there in the rain drenched soaking wet. we ended up getting towels from them and took off our shoes and socks. thats a first for me, teaching investigators barefoot haha. But hey!! turns out they like Seether and Shinedown a lot so we played that stuff on guitar during dinner. I really am meant to be here i guess! The other family, we didn't have so much luck with them, they didn't see us or come to church this week.
We also found a bomb less active family to teach. They are the Goodrum family and they have a serious situation so they're not technically less active. they have crazy health problems. We heard they needed help so we went over to say hi and offer. We took out the trash for them and then ended up getting to know them a lot and shared a powerful mormon message about dealing with trials. Then they invited us over again in a couple days from that lesson and we went over and shared a message about the Plan of Salvation since the wife had just lost her momma. They love us so much and they even said it to us. haha. We also feel the same way. The Spirit is very strong when we are with them. They help me be humble, charitable and knowledgeable.
We have another pretty good investigator named Bobbi (its a younger lady) that we taught. She wanted to come to church but didnt make it for some reason. She's really sweet and interested though. We also have Lucinda and Jason that we're teaching. Saw them last night and answered questions and talked about the Restoration.
This week was waayyyy stormy. We had constant rainfall for almost 2 days. Made water appear everywhere!! Alvin doesn't flood because its got a good bayou and ditches. But it flooded in certain fields and in between the roads on grass medians. The weather has been absolutely ridiculous. It was really dark for those days as well. We got soaked while biking. It was quite fun. People think we are nuts
This week will be crazy as well. We will be having Elder Corbridge, a general authority come and speak to us on Friday. We also will have MLC with him there too. We're gonna love it.
Love and miss ya,
