This week was a trip; first of all we had.... agh where to begin?
Monday we taught a recent convert Casey W. more about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, then we were up and about all day Tuesday with a member named Brother Turner (who was a member of the area 70 for the Waynesboro Virginia area a whole long time ago.) and every Tuesday we go with him and go see people that are 40 miles away who are still in the Ward boundaries and we talked with a guy named Ricky who is interested in learning about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is in his 60's and we talked with his wife as well and she basically said "I got my Jesus stuff down alright, you talk with my husband. He needs it". So we did. Ricky is super cool and he reads the Bible every day and is learning more and more about Jesus Christ.
Wednesday-Friday is kind of a blurr besides we had a lot of stuff that we did. We had a infestation of bugs in our apartment in the sugar and pasta section of our apartment so we cleaned that out and that was.... really sad for me because I had to get rid of uncooked pasta :'( tears were shed in the inside. Saturday we went by an appointment we had set up with a referral family we had received and guess what, the entire family wants to learn about the things we teach! Devin (the dad who is in his 30's) was on the All-American college basketball team about 10 or 12 years back but then he met Michelle and they had a kid named Demario (who is 10 now) and Donivan is 7. Devin wants his kids to learn about Jesus Christ and God in any way they can and so does Michelle. Michelle (from what we heard) was really mad at Devin for accidentally scheduling our visit for when she had to go into work that morning and we were all kind of chuckling about it. They want to progress and after our first lesson with them Devin told us that the things we are teaching are for him too and he wants to learn about it. It was super solid and the Spirit of God was super strong.
We met also with a WW2 veteran named Smokey Schrader who is the parent of a member we helped move. He is interested as well and said that all of his extended family is pretty much of our faith and he wants to know a lot more about it (the dude is 91! and he is crazy cool). We also met with Michelle (another lady we are teaching) and she bore her testimony of Jesus Christ to us and what she knows is true. It was fantastic! There was a time on Sunday where all 3 of us were just a wreck (tired) but looking back I can see how The Lord is blessing us and touching the hearts of those we meet.
