11/25/13 November 25th Elder Gurr
How are things going? Well it's been a long election week, but I am now ready to have a good week. So here is a little about what happened this week. This Monday we had a interesting experience. I locked us out of the house so we had to fix that problem which took some time but it was weird to cut the metal part of the lock to enter our house. That day we found a new family. They are a coffee growing family but that doesn't mean that they still can't be members of the church. Tuesday was my most favorite day of the year. We had an appointment at a military base. She said there were 50 people interested in the gospel. The problem is we needed special permission from the zone leaders to teach so we could not.
The weirdest thing happened. We were talking in front of the base when a random monkey came out of nowhere. He climbed on me and it was really weird. I understand the phrase your acting like monkeys. Then we visited a less-active family which we found a new investigator which was awesome. I also was able to touch a goat because they had one, awesome! The lesson though with the family was powerful and the husband is becoming more active again.
Wednesday we taught another less-active about the plan of salvation because they could not remember. Then we taught a 15 year old kid who reads the bible and doesn't spend his time wasting it. He could be baptized but he is working hard at school. He lives on the other side of the mission for school. Here in Marcala there is only bilingual school. So some people know a little English here. On Thursday we had 1 day interchanges with another elder and his name is Elder Borge from Nigaragua. He has tons of energy and he is a new missionary. We taught a powerful lesson with the new family we found.
Friday the missionaries had a baptism which was awesome to see them achieve their goals. We have a thing going to help each other to baptize more but to also help the people. Then Saturday, Sunday, Monday we were not allowed to leave due to elections but nothing bad happened. We are all ok. I am ready to go out and serve the Lord again and ready to bring souls unto him. Love you all. See you next week again.
