Well things are going super good the work is really going let me update you on everyone with a baptismal date so. Kealey she finally talked to her parents about joining and it didn't go as bad as she thought it would, so after that we set a date of November 1st for her! Then we have a kid named jake he is doing good he is just lovin the book of mormon his date is for November 5th. Then we have Derrick ah man I love Derrick he is such a funny kid he is a freshman at marquette and really likes the church! His date is for November 12th. Then we have Nathan he is a grad student at UWM and he just needs to move out so he can get baptized he really wants to be baptized just need a miracle to happen for someone to take his lease! He has a date for November 19th. Then we have Jackson he is such a funny 14 year old kid he uses way to big of words haha he really wants to get baptized so he has a date for the 26th of November but we are hoping to add his family to that which would be three more people.
So ya there is that for you all just a little update on them. For this week we had some really weird things happen like really weird haha so here is one that is so funny but so odd too. So we were having this lesson at this mall because that is where a less active worked at and this guy kept walking around us during the whole lesson and finally when we were done he came up to us and wanted our number and what not so we were pretty stoked about that but, little did we know he has met with missionaries in the past and he has this weird foot fetish. He called us and was like "ok when you come in make sure to take off your shoes" so we were like well this is really weird so we told him we couldn't come and got really mad. We call him terrance the toe tickler but ya that was really weird. Another thing this week was we met with these investigators who are super catholic like his sister is a nun and brother a priest so ya and to add on they are lawyers so they have some good questions! They really help me learn the doctrine and teach clearly they really keep me on my toes! They are super awesome though so we will let you know on them that would be quit the conversion story! You all remember that HUGE house I sent a picture of that we knocked well we went back and got in and sat down and had a lesson there how cool is that! There are 15 people that there because in their culture you all live together so it has a lot of people but, the house was soooo nice probably will be the nicest house I ever go into and also the lesson was super good so I will keep you updated on them!
Also this week we had a general authority come to our Stake Conference it was elder Switchzer he was super funny. He pointed out things in the Book of Mormon I never even thought of he talked about how impossible it would have been for Joseph Smith to write the Book of Mormon because of things in it. One was how in it they talk about Checks and Balances with the government with King Noah and also all the war strategies that Captain Moroni did like how would Joseph Smith know about any of that at his age and with his education. So cool so ya little testimony builder.
For a Spiritual thought it comes from Joshua 3:5 it says "And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves:for to morrow the Lord will do wonders among you." When we Sanctify ourselves that means to purify us and get ride of any ungodliness or sins we may have and then he promises us that when we do that He can do all things through us! I can feel that in my own self when I truly give my all to the Lord he is able to do many wonders through me! I love you all hope you have a great week!
