Where did October go?
Ahhhhh, this was a dec week. (Picked up dec from my comp. shortened version of decent. I dig it.) We got to teach M again! She was the investigator who knew everything was true but wanted her fam to all be apart of it. We got to meet her husband too and hope things will progress with them. She is so awesome, she has so much faith. We helped resolve her concerns and questions about the Restoration and read in 3 Nephi 11 and she loooooved it. Oh and after our lesson, she walked us out to pick up a tricycle and we saw some people running and I could sense the vibes. Not good. Come to find out, there was a knife fight around the corner. Yeah we booked it out of there, and we survived!Last week we had our family mission plan fireside. Then Tuesday we went to the T family whose kids are being baptized next weekend, and the first thing the 13 year old son said to us was, "Meron ako isang referral para sa inyo!" AH IRVINE. YOU ARE ADORABLE. He gave us a referral of his 12 year old classmate who lives in the next city over so we cant teach her, but we sent it to the other missionaries. So tender!! So the point of it is, if HE can give missionaries a referral, YOU can too!! Love those kids. And so pumped for their baptism next weekend! Love bringing people into this amazing gospel.
Also, this week we went to the grocery store and I saw CRISPY M&M'S!!!! Does anyone else remember those?! I remember they made them when I was like 10 and then stopped and we loved them at our house! Then I also remember signing a petition at BYU for this girl who wanted to bring them back. lol. I found them here and they were delish to the max.
Elections are going on right now. And we were taking a tricycle to an appointment. And then we straight up got stuck in a parade. And then everyone was screaming and staring at us white people. And it was really awkward. I hate all the election trucks with the tremendously loud music that blows off my ears.Also, the most Christ-like person I know, Sister Meti, came to our house for exchanges. She is from India and is in my district and made us the most legit Chicken Curry. Yes, it totally cleared my sinuses from the spices and I loved it.
