Transfer 14 Week 3 August 24 2015

Well this last week was pretty good, but it was a little tough too. But something amazing did happen. On Tuesday i finally aquired some chocolate muffins from Costco! A Costco opened up here in Saltillo in June and i have been trying to get some muffins ever since. And it finally happend on Tuesday! And thankfully they tasted exactly the same as they do in the U.S., But unfortunately they are all gone, and it could be a while until we can get some more...

So we started to teach a christian family here in our area. They have some beliefs that are pretty different than what we believe in. Especially when i comes to Sunday Worship. They say that in their chuch they have music and they dance, and people faint when they are overcome by the spirit and the people speak in uncomprehensible languages. So we had a lesson with them, and it was the first time that i was really a part of a real ¨Bible bash¨. It was a lot of fun. Luckily the family is really cool so there wasn´t too much contention. And i think that they actually understood what i was trying to tell them. So I was able to talk them into reading 3 nephi chapter 11. and they also fed us dinner. Afterwards the brother asked my companion if he could pray for him. My companion told him that he could and the brother asked him to stand up. So he did. Then the Brother told my campanion that he was going to faint and you should have seen my companions face! He looked so scared! So luckily i was able to talk him out of it and we went home.

Then on Friday we returned for the next lesson and they weren´t there. I guess they were afraid of losing again, and that this time i would actually talk them into being baptized! But seriously, they actually did know a lot about the Bible, a lot more than i do truthfully. I guess we just interpret it in a different way. But it was a lot of fun truthfully. He would share a scripture, then i would share a scripture, then he would, then i would. Then i would share my testimony and there is no way that he could argue with a testimony. I hope that we can see them again, but for the meantime we are going to keep searching for new people to teach.

We actually found quite a few people this week. 9 people told us that they would go to church with us Yesterday, but unfortunately only one person showed up. But i was still pretty happy that that one did go. We had Stake conference this week. it was good.
