How Does One Missionary . . .

This week has been interesting trying to figure out how to be a missionary yet still deal with all the emotions, all the "feelings". I'm working on it, along with getting over jet lag.  

Me, Sora Schow and Lidia
We realized that our two most promising investigators were not progressing at all and in fact ,were very stuck and so we realized that we can't really teach them anymore, so that kinda sucked, but that's okay. One of them, Lidia, is a very sweet girl who just thinks of things in very abstract ways and she thinks all churches are good. We met with her Tuesday and tried to have a lesson about the gospel of Jesus Christ and we couldn't even get past faith; so that wasn't good but we had a 'taco party' with her after our fail of a lesson. haha. 

Cute little (full of fleas) Kitten
Wednesday night we had a fun crazy adventure of deciding to pick up a stray kitten off the side of the road and then having to figure out what to do with it. It turned out that this poor little thing had a TON of fleas all over it! We ended up being able to take it to the vet with the help of George, our recent convert, and getting it some flea shampoo. We were also able to find it a home and a new loving owner before the end of the night; so go us! Even if it was a really stupid decision in the first place. 

Thursday, we had our first zone conference with our new mission President, President Hettinger,  and it was awesome but very different from zone conferences with President Ivory. It will be exciting to see how the mission changes in the way it needs to for this time. 

A cool thing happened this week when we went less active finding (where we take a list of members that don't really come anymore and try to go visit them). One of the couples we tried visiting actually let us in and we talked with them for about an hour. It turned out that that day was the day they had gotten baptized many years ago. They shared pictures with us and their stories of how they came to know the church was true. It was super cool, and the wife came this Sunday! (The husband has health problems). 

I think that's about everything or at least I'm out of time. I love you guys. Have a great week. 
Love Sora Vann
