Elder Jensen and I had such a great week!
Today we taught a man named Henry. Elder Jensen met him last Saturday on exchanges. They knocked on an in-active member's door. A man came to the door and called out who is it. They replied that it was the missionaries. The man let them in right away and sat them down in their living room. It was not the in-active member but it was a man who is really struggling and so he felt like Elder Jensen and Elder Christensen were angels sent to him. He opened up to them and told them that he really struggles with drugs. They taught him the Restoration and set him with the baptismal day and he absolutely loved it. Elder Jensen gave him a pretty hefty assignment on that first meeting on Saturday, so we could know if he was solid to teach today. His assignment was to read three chapters in the Book of Mormon, as well as, dispose of all drugs in his apartment. When we taught him today he was waiting for us at the top of his stairs. He had read and felt the Spirit while doing so. He said it was like taking a nap but better haha. For a second I thought he studied Lehi’s dream, haha jk but he read King Benjamin’s account. As we taught, he continues to talk about his desires to serve God and change his life around! He is super awesome!
Today, I was on exchanges with Elder Ebert. We had a super fun day and were able to meet some great people. We met a lady that was super, super nice and said her family would be interested in hearing our message. We went on bikes for a little bit today and the weather is so nice for biking. We also taught Henry again today and we met his girlfriend, who he will be getting married to shortly. He is doing well.
The other day we street contacted a man named David. David told us he would be interested in having a discussion and today we were able to teach him. He knows a lot about the Mormon Church and has read parts of the Book of Mormon before. He is moving in like three weeks but we will hopefully teach all the way up to his move! We had interviews with President and then had a short meeting with him and Sister Walker. Transfers are going to be fun this time...😐 (Four missionaries leaving, twelve coming to the field, opening up four areas and loosing ten cars.)
Today was practically a pre-pre transfer planning day haha. We had an office staff meeting and then we started talking about transfers and the next thing we knew; it was 5:30!
Fast Sunday's in Las Vegas are great except to bring investigators to. Haha I always enjoy hearing people’s stories and their interesting comments. Sometimes they get off track quickly! This week there was a 15-minute story from a guy nobody could understand and when he finished his story he just said “Amen” and walked off haha!
Elder Jensen and I had such a great week! We did some biking just for kicks and giggles and because the weather is just spectacular right now. It is like sunny and 75 and then chills down to like 60-65 haha it is beautiful. We haven't seen rain in centuries but can't complain too much haha. We are starting to teach more.
