Did you know that sweat is your fat crying? ;) Well lets just say my fat is crying like Niagara falls. IT IS SO HOT HERE. I bike so much my calves are going to be bigger than my Dads. So on Wednesday we had been turned down so much, no one wanted to talk to us! But we were excited because we had an appointment with a less active member. He lives like 8 miles away. We got on our bikes and beat cheeks to his house because we didn't want to be late, we knock on his door and he told us he was too busy to talk with us. We were a little mad because it was really hot and we biked forever to get there, we walked away kind of irritated. we were trying to figure out what to do next when this little girl walked by, Sister Sackley asked if she had been baptized, and she said she hadn't and that she wanted to. So we jumped on that opportunity like any other missionary would. We showed her Because of Him, and asked if her parents would be interested in watching. She took us to her parents house and we showed her step mom the video. THE SPIRIT WAS SO STRONG! You could tell she had been through a lot, you could tell she was fighting away tears. After the video I bore my testimony that she would receive peace if she followed Jesus Christ. She was really interested and wanted us to come back and show her the other video. We waited a couple of days and made the long bike ride back to her house, and we saw Olivia (the little girl) outside. She came and talked to us and she seemed pretty excited to see us, we showed her the video and asked if her step Mom was home. Sister Sackley and I hurried and prayed as a companionship before we went to the apartment. During the prayer Olivia ran home, we didn't think much about it. Sister Sackley and I walked to the door and knocked, and of course there was no answer. We could hear them inside, we knocked two more times and no one answered. People these days, little do they know their salvation is at the doorstep!
If you find some free time and don't know what to do with your time, write me a letter (not email, so that I can respond) and tell me how you came to know that the Book of Mormon is true. I would love to hear from all of you!
