Plan of Salvation - Winchester, Tennessee
Dear Family and Friends,
This week was good. It was the last week of the transfer and it ends up that the Spanish speaking elders are being reassigned. I don't know if we will get sisters or elders this coming transfer. It will be interesting. On Tuesday we did some regular missionary work. We talked with a guy who had contact and discussions with missionaries back in 2007. We taught him the Plan of Salvation and the lesson went very well. On Wednesday we had district meeting in Jasper, TN. I followed the GPS on the drive over but it took us a weird way. We went through the back woods and down a mountain on a road called Stage Coach Road which was very steep. It was a little scary.
On Thursday we had a lesson with these cool African American people, however, they are really into and love ISIS, and think they are on the right track. hmmm. We talked about why we are here on earth with them and that discussion opened the door a bit for them to trust us given the truth of the message. The guy just took my Book of Mormon without even asking and my Jesus pictures. That night we went with a member into the country to meet a less active and this guy was cool. On Friday we meet with a investigator, I fixed his bloated malware computer and he was thankful. That night we played soccer with a ton of Hispanics. They were a little intimidating. I was goalie.
On Saturday we had lunch at a less-active's home and ate some good, homemade pizza. That day we tracted a ton and then met with a less-active family and they had no A/C in their house. A hot, hot and sweaty discussion. On Sunday we had the Wendy's investigator come again, it was great.
Congrats Derek and Gabby. Love y'all.
