So i really want to hear about everyone’s lives back at home. Mom can only tell me so much. I don’t want to come home in six months and not know anyone in my own house except mom of course. If you want to email me, I’ll print it out and read it and write you back. Or just write me a letter. I really want to hear from you all. Everyone in Elder Jones’ family emails him every week. So yeah. I feel like i am holding up my end and mom is carrying all of the other end on her back. Thanks mom for being so faithful.
I wasn’t very clear on this. Roberta has a Ded Serenity and they are set up for the 10th of December. Shauna and Justin McCartney are set up for the 21st of the same month. Love ya.
I think the quote sounds better when I think of someone else saying it, not myself. So this week was really good. Despite some lost time here and there from being new zone leaders and trying to figure things out on the run, Elder Jones and I are seeing some good success. Its fun. Wednesday we had a good leadership meeting and things went well. Afterwards Elder Jones and I went to a delicious pizza buffet called Rico’s. I guess it was huge in California back in the day but now there is only like one in Sacramento. So we went there. It is super good. The TV was on Sport Center and we saw all the good stuff on Joe Patterno and his friend.
Man what is this world coming to! Also the commercials are ridiculous. Man. After lunch we were able to tract for a little while. It was fun. Then we had a pretty sweet miracle. We went to see some referrals that some missionaries gave us a week before and after two or three elder Jones had to pee real bad so we were about to go to Roberts house, the blind recent convert who is awesome. He said he could hold it for a little longer so we just kept seeing people who all lived in the same apartment complex. So we went and thought we were done but then we remembered one last one that was up on the third floor. So we went up to it and knocked on the door and this nice white guy with a beard answered the door.
She still loves me
This part gets cool. He says he is busy babysitting two of his daughters and his house is a mess but he wanted us to come back on Saturday. Well we asked what his de was Kaylee. Elder Jones has a little sister named Kaylee who is 17 and mature brunette super pretty, so I might be moving to North Carolina in 6 months. So that was fun but then he told us the name of the younger de was Hayley. Well how about that. He has two des as our younger sisters! So we talked for a bit then we asked if there was anything we could do before we left and he said no, just answer me this. We replied that we felt we needed to stop by and that we almost missed it but we were prompted and remembered it.
He got a real surprised look on his face and almost started crying. He said he had been praying the day before for guidance and he knew there was more he needed in his life religion wise. He told God that if this Mormon thing was for him that he needed to send the missionaries over the very next day. Well there we were. An answer to his prayer. So that was cool. The only thing is, he wasn’t home for our return appointment on Saturday. The rest of the day would be a letdown compared to that story. We did have Chipotle for dinner which was mighty tasty. Wednesday we had a great district meeting. Elder Jones and I rewrote She Will Be Loved by Maroon 5.
