Hey everyone how’s life?
Things are going good down here and we had a pretty eventful week in some ways that usually don’t happen. The first of these is the snow we got on Friday of this week. Yep the impossible happened, Louisana had more snow one day than some parts of Utah! It won’t ever happen again probably, it was the first time Houma had received snow in about 10 years! It was a blast, we made snowmen and had a few snowball fights with a member family and heard a few comments about how hell had finally frozen over, it was great!
Also this week we had a fun call on Wednesday from Elder Bagley in La Place, he called us telling us we needed to go and see one of his investigators that had just moved to Houma so he could hear the final lesson he needed before getting baptized on Friday! So we call the guy (his name is T) and set something up for that night.... and then he didn’t show up. Apparently he fell asleep after we set up the appointment and completely missed it. The next day we call him and ended up having to do the lesson over the phone with him because he lived about 30 miles away.... a little too far to bike when it is raining cats and dogs, but it was a good lesson and apparently the baptism (he got baptized in La Place) went smoothly so that is great.
Then the last crazy thing that happened this week is that the big Spanish family we met last week finally were not sick anymore. We went over and started to teach them a lesson; come to find out the mom is a less active Mormon and their grandma that is in Puerto Rico is a super active Mormon. The mom said she had been inactive for so long she had forgotten most of the church doctrine, but that she loved how the church worked still. Her daughters that aren’t Mormon were telling us how out of all the religions they studied about, while in a religion course in college, the LDS church was the one they were the most impressed with. In the end most of them were very willing for us to come back and refresh the mom’s memory of the church and to take the missionary lessons. It was great!
Love y’all I hope you have an awesome week!
