I hope you all are having an amazing Christmas Season! This has been a pretty good week!
Last Monday we met a really cool guy named Steve! He was so casual. He opened the door and stood there in his underwear and ate his green beans while we talked for about 1.5 hours. He is so smart! he has read part of the Book of Mormon before and the Karan. But he said that he want to try it out again and that if he finds that it is the true then he will be baptized and be a Mormon. I loved the attitude he has about it all and the church. He doesn't really care about like what everyone says about the church He just wants to find out what is the true because there can only be one true church. I loved it! we are kind of nervous because he is so smart but that will be okay:) that is what the Spirit is for!
We met with the Boully Family. Which is the less active Family that wouldn't let anyone in and always looked out the blinds at us when we came. I cant remember if we told you about them but we had them on our 21day challenge. Which is to pray for some list of less active or nonmember people for 21 days morning and night without missing a prayer and the promise is that someone on the list will accept missionary lessons. on day 17 they reached out to Bishop and we are now teaching them the lessons for Holden the 9 year old investigator! they are an amazing family! the best is when I called out the oldest son for not answering our calls and then Sister Jarvies was like "yeah and we totally saw ya'll look out the window at us like every time." hahaha It was so awkward. we all laughed so that was good! They are so fun! we love them!
We got to meet with a young couple and talk about our loving Heavenly Father. John doesn't believe in GOD but in a higher power...who is loving and fatherly like..so I don't know what ya'll think that God is but that's what I thought. So that is what we are trying to help him understand for now;)
We met another investigator this week named Charlene. She is super sweet and loved the Promise in Moroni 10. I am really excited to get to know her and learn with her. It was pretty funny there too....She was telling us how she only doesn't like the catholic church because they kicked her nephew out for being Gay.. so I looked at S. Jarvies like I wanted her to tell Charlene what we think about that.....but then I just felt so bad because she looked scared to death... So I just told Charlene that God understands all of us have our own Struggles and that even though He doesn't tolerate them that He still will love and help us....so Yeah I Hope that I didn't open a can of worms by not being bold about it.... but we will find out.
We had a great week! and we are excited to see what this next week brings! I hope we can continue to spread the good work this week with Minot:)
Merry Christmas to you all and I hope you all have a chance to remember what Christmas is really all about!:) I love you all:)
Love, Tay Sister A
