Wow a lot of weird stuff happened this week. Like really weird… some very abnormal… but it sure made us laugh. I love working with Elder Quada. He is a champ and a half. Anyways… let the stories begin…
So 2 weeks ago two older men contacted us and said they wanted us to visit them… ya sweet! That like never happens. So anyways, we go and they let us in and we started with the solid small talk of Elder Quada and I. They give us some sprite… okay! So far so good! Then we say a prayer. And we start asking from what religion are they and such… then I pull out my Bible to show them a scripture because they talked about how there are so many churches today. Then he asks me where is your Bible…. I say right here… then he says no, he asks my companion, he says right here in my hand, the man is still not satisfied, then he asks Juan, who is a member who is going with us and he pulls out his Bible and the older man says nope. He then points to his heart and says… that is where your bible should be… that is where mine is and then he points to a super apostasy painting of Jesus with his heart like showing and tells us some stuff that is why Christ points to his heart. And like I didn’t even know where to run from with that, it was like that awkward… okay…. anyways, I told him I wanted to share a scripture from Poverbs and he interrupts me and says I don’t believe in that book… this is the son but he is like 60… anyways he says that book is not a true book because NEIL ARMSTRONG wrote it… I didn’t understand the name when he said it because he said it super peruvian but then my comp started laughing and then I caught on and he said he wrote it to make himself look like he was completing the prophecy made in that book… Then my companion told him you are not right and what you are saying is a lie. Then he said that Neil was re-incarnated and we were like that is not true either and he was like yeah… it exists and we told him no, it does not, he then said well I am re-incarnated… and was like what up…in your face… he showed us a picture of him supposedly like a long time ago… then he proceeded to say… now not be prideful… but I am Jesus Christ…. he said it so seriously…and I started laughing and my comp got kind of annoyed and told him to stop saying that because that is a lie and not true… then he starts hating on cholos… those are like the mountain people in Peru and the funny thing is… pretty much everyone is from the mountains there and then started hating on black people but for some reason he loves white people even though we straight up told him he was a liar. So we met 2 crazy old men which one claimed to have the bible literally in his heart and the other professed himself as the Christ reincarnated… claiming that Niel Armstrong wrote Proverbs… …Crazy guys
Then the family that we are trying to marry… well let’s just say her dad is not feeling it. He will not give her her birth certificate to be married because they are Catholic and will die Catholic. But anyways… we were walking down from their house and they had failed us… and her dad says to me as we are walking down… I had no idea it was him.. he asks us if we are visiting Rosa and it didn’t register and I was like what… he says Rosa and Miguel? And I was like yeah… and he says you can’t visit them… and my comp… is a big boy and super funny and fears no one and he says… says who? And he gets mad, “I says so!” haha. Anyways, he begins to tell us how we are destroying their family, that their family will be ruined because of us and he says my daughter will not be Mormon… never!!!! And then he says if her husband wants to be Mormon then they will have to seperate. Then my comp says looks like you are destroying the familly… and he gets mad… he says If I ever see you again by their house, teaching them, I will hit you… I will physically hurt you… and I told him do it. Hit us… he is like 70… hahahaha. He walks away super mad…. so ya… we have work to do with that family!
So on Tuesday I did a divison with Tilda… we are walking down a street and a chick and a guy come by running and I didn’t pay much attention and then he just slams into her like a football hit and she goes down hard… he starts beating the crap out of her and people start freaking out and someone grabbed him and pulled him off of her and he grabs her leg and began to drag her on the street… then she got up and it was like nothing happened… super crazy..
Now for the good stuff… So there is a part in my patriarchal blessing where it talks about how I will serve a mission and what not, anyways we taught Diana about patriarchal blessings and I shared that part with her and how we had found her and it was SOOO spiritual. Amazing! She is so awesome! She has a calling already in the Relief Society!
We are teaching a lady named Sandra and she is super dope! She is the most sincere person ever! She wants to know if this is true so bad and she is doing all she can! She started bawling in the lesson because she has stuff she wants to erase and wow… we left her a sick scripture to help her!
So we had ups and downs… and also weird crap! But I am doing alright! I love you all so much!
