Houses For Dayzzzzz

Wow this week was great! We tracted all the week long! It was crazy! I have never knocked so many doors in my life. But As you can tell after a long days work of knocking doors I got to rest a little. We met a super cool older couple named the Kramers. we met them because we asked him about his piece of petrified wood on the front porch. He knows a lot about different religions and initially invited us in to just learn more and let us take a break from tracting. But as we continued to teach He seemed more and more interested and more and more uneasy about this actually changing some of him Lutheran beliefs. We asked them to read the Book of Mormon and to pray. He said that He will call us and we can come back another time to talk some more. After our lesson they gave us some "Lefse" which is potatoe based tortillas and some butter and sugar on top. they were super bland but not a bad snack:) I have yet to have a meal that I cannot get down. But at least we know that the Kramers liked us enough to feed us;)

We also had a lesson with our investigator Aimee. She is going to be baptized on Dec 5th and is doing so well. We taught her the Law of Chastity and we got to resolve some of her concerns and help her commit to repentance and understanding that once we repent we are brand new and there is no leftover scars or baggage. She felt much better after we all shared our testimonies and experiences with her. It was great. She is so prepared and I am so excited to see her make this covenant and make it to the temple:)
Our Less Active this week was with Shelby Robinson. She is the one who owns the rat. That rats name is Lilith. But we talked about our divine nature with her and how even though we all have own divine natures that Christ gospel and our own personalities are what we use here on earth and how we help others and our selves get back to our Father. We had one other lesson this week where we talked a lot about the spirit world and how important it is to have that time to learn and accept the promises that we didn't make here on our own. It was great to not only learn so much this week but also to teach some people who are willing to listen and learn about God.

I hope you all have a wonderful week and take time to think about those around you that could used the blessings of the Gospel in their lives. As thanksgiving is right around the corners our neighbors and friends will be in the spirit to receive our Savior. Thank you for all the love and support:)
