God Works in Mysterious Ways


Last week was great!  The other missionaries  handed over their investigator because he is staying in our area, so we get to teach him!  All of your prayers help-thank you so much!!!!!  I'm sorry to hear about Aunt Jana passing away-that's so tough.  Good thing for the knowledge of the Plan of Salvation.  This week was a pretty good week...a little slow, but good.  We met with all 3 of our investigators and we had interviews with President Mella.  They were a kinda get to know ya, then an actual interview, so it was alright.  We meet with Carrie this week and you can totally tell she has been prepared-it's awesome!  She wants it to be a family thing, so if she wants to be baptized, she wants her husband to be there, as well.  We haven't met him yet, but hopefully he's been prepared, as well!  We'll see how that goes, but it looks promising!  We also met with Joseph and talked to him a little bit about the Plan of Salvation and that went alright.  We might have to go back over some things with him and see what he remembers from last time.  We also met with Scott on Saturday and shared the Restoration with him and invited him to be baptized and he said YES!!!!  Wahoo!!!!  We set a baptismal date for October 4th, but it might get bumped since it's General Conference weekend, but at least he said yes!  We are still going to meet up with him and finish the lessons.
On Saturday, the ward had a luau!  It was a lot of fun.  We participated in the Haka.  It was a lot of fun and a good experience, with quite a few non-members there along with some less actives-so it was good!  Yesterday was a good day since we had church, but none of our investigators came, though.   We had lunch with the Yuens, Super awesome family.  We then went contacting at Santa Clara university, and they were having a wine walk or something like that, so a lot of people drinking, it was very interesting talking to people especially a couple of gay guys who were drunk and hitting' on us....eeehhhh bleh!  Man, those were one of those moments I have never felt so uncomfortable in my life and violated!!!! Yuck!  So, that was interesting!  After that, we went to dinner and on the way back from dinner, a piece of my frame broke on my bike!  It stinks (but don't worry about it.  I'm going to borrow another bike). So while we were waiting for the Zone leaders to come pick us up, we talked to a lady in a pizza place, since my comp had to use the bathroom.  I talked to her about the gospel and she said she would be interested and also gave us one of her friend's number!  It was pretty cool!  I guess God works in mysterious ways sometimes.  If my bike hadn't broken and if he didn't need to go to the bathroom, we wouldn't have talked with her...awesome!  Tonight, we are meeting with a potential investigator that some members are bringing to their house for us.  I'm excited to see what happens!  Hopefully, it goes well!  Well, I hope you guys have a great week this week!  Love ya!
