Howdy y'all! Week 12 is in the bag! We had a pretty average week this week as missionaries in the Las Vegas Mission! Saw some success and had lots of adventures here in Sin City!
First, we had 6 investigators at church yesterday, and 3 of those 6 are getting baptized on the 8th. We were expecting only 4 to be there, and 1 of them having a date, but 1 minute before church started, the other two investigators being baptized on the 8th, Tia and Patrick, randomly walked in. Elder Webb and I were shocked because we weren't planning on them being there. They were In LA for Tia's birthday the night before. They were there untiland then came back and got to church at 11. That's some dedication haha. They were both excited to be there and stayed awake the whole time!
Second, I got food poisoning all day yesterday. It was horrible. I got it from Panda Express (shocker). I left church early with one of the priests and went and took a short nap. Then we went out with that priest to teach. He's on a mini mission with us!! It's a lot of fun. We went and taught 2 lessons and then went to dinner. At dinner all I could eat was toast and apple sauce haha so that was interesting. After dinner Elder Webb told me to stay at the member's house we are at, so I did. Him and the mini missionary went out and taught, and I slept for 3 hours on one of our member's couches! Haha so that was nice, I'm feeling a lot better now and I can actually eat!
Funny story of the week. We were going to teach a lesson and we hear this really loud bang. It's dark and we look around and see this guy on top of the grocery store next to the apartment complex. Elder Webb and I thought it was a fun shot (which is pretty regular in our area) but then when Elder Webb saw the guy on top of the store he thought it was a sniper so he runs to the door of our lesson and I'm laughing cause the guy was doing maintenance. I thought I was a gun shot too, but not that guy on the roof haha. Later we come to find out it was just a bunch of fireworks, so false alarm! No worries here!!
My spiritual thought for the week is the talk The Candle of the Lord. It's a talk from the January 1983 Ensign, given by Boyd K. Packer. I invite all of you to read it. It is available in Gospel Library. It focuses a lot on the Spirit, and is really helpful to everyone to read.
I love you all so much! Thank you for your support and prayers, I feel them all the time, especially when the Lord wants to give me a little boost. Till next week!!
It was so windy one day this week that all the dirt got tossed up in the valley and it was hard to see!
