Bad Kitty
So our email time is going to be split up today because of stuff going on, so I may respond to some of you later today if I have time. Hopefully I can get to everybody! :)
So some missionary work updates, this week we were super busy with stuff and weren't able to talk to very many investigators. Well, not like we are normally able to, so we didn't get too many new investigators. Sadly we did have to drop Bob, one of my favorite old dudes. :( He would never come to church and didn't keep most of the commitments we would leave with him so sadly we aren't going to be teaching him anymore, but we may stop by occasionally. BUT! We do have an awesome investigator right now named Brianna, she is doing really great! She has been an investigator for like 2 1/2 to 3 weeks now? We have taught her a few lessons and are shooting for baptism on August 29th which would be super! We are asking her to pray about it and talk with family because that is one of the things she really worries about is making her family upset. But she has been to church and wants to keep coming and loves everything we teach and believes all of it. She also says she has found a purpose in life and that is so great! :) So hopefully she will accept the baptismal date of the 29th. She lives with her grandma and great grandma who are always arguing about religion and the trinity (Heavenly father, Jesus, and the Spirit being one person not separate), its kinda funny! But for some reason lately I've been really prompted to teaching the Great grandma, so I'm gonna try and focus on her a little bit more too, if we can get her to sit down with us that is. :)
So one of the days we were on exchanges, that is where you switch companions for a day, and I was with Elder Ellis in his area and we had a guy come out with us to help teach and he was hilarious!!! He was this big guy 6'5" and was from the Congo Africa. He had a sick accent! But while we were in this old ladies house she had a kitten about 4 months old, super cute, and the cat starts rubbing against his leg (His name is Juvenal) and you look at him and he is kinda worried and you can tell he just looks funky. Then the cat jumps on his lap and starts rubbing against his stomach and he like pushes back against the cat and looks super uncomfortable like he is scared of this little kitty cat haha! :') So we start laughing and ask him what's up. He says, "Man, I eat cat!" So we start laughing and were like, "wait what???" He says,"I eat cats. In the Congo we ate cats, and I'm trying hard right now to not kill the cat." It was so hilarious. Y'all should have seen how uncomfortable he was. :') It made my day! He kept mentioning how the cat was gonna be dinner! Oh dear! Poor cat. :P Anyways, this week was pretty great, love y'all! :)
