July 25th Keepin Busy in the Office


So how was the trip to Hawaii? Did y'all enjoy yourselves?  haha I am sure you did :) and that's the good part :) I am sure it was quite relaxing and enjoyable so that's fun.  
This week has been a little crazy and we haven't been able to get much stuff done in the area because we have been doing stuff with the changes and such. Before the secretaries of referrals and health didn't help that much with changes but they wanted us to so we did :) We helped set up "La Última Cena" for the missionaries that were heading out and then president invited us to stay and eat... so we did... and then we cleaned everything up.  That was Sunday evening.  
None of our investigators came to church with us... Jesús was moving and Jonathan had to work because they changed his schedule... and there was this other investigator that said she was going to go and we passed by her house and she didn't get up or something and didn't make it either... and then on Monday we were helping out with transfers and all that and spent the whole day here in the office... and then on Tuesday... we did work a little and then on Wednesday a little as well, on Thursday we didn't because we had planning and a conference and mission correlation with the WML and then yesterday we worked :) so it's been a little slow for all the things that have been going on... well not really,  but speaking about the work in the area sense it is...

So a good experience that we had yesterday with Jonathan and also another from this week with him. Yesterday we visited him and we were talking about what he had read in the Book of Mormon and he had a ton of questions... so we were just answering all of his questions for a bit but then we started teaching him about the Plan of Salvation and all that. And again, he had a ton of questions about all that. It was a cool experience because he had a ton of questions and we were able to answer all of them (well, almost all of them, some of them were kinda weird...) and it was something that makes me more grateful for having the fullness of the Gospel, because there are a lot of churches and people that don't have access to all the knowledge and insight that we have in the restored church and they have to live with those questions and doubts until they find the true church or... they die so... it's such a blessing to have the knowledge that we have here on this earth and I am grateful for it :) 
Also, we taught him earlier in the week and we talked about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In this lesson we taught him about receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost and Endure to the End and it was great when he totally understood the need of getting baptized spiritually as well as in the water and how it doesn't really have a point to get baptized if you don't receive the Spirit afterwards. He is still excited to get baptized as well because (well he didn't remember the date exactly) he asked when was the day we had invited him to get baptized so he could get work off that day,  haha it was great :) but anyways, he is doing pretty good.

Oh.. I lied... we did have an investigator at church... but we didn't know he was an investigator, well  we did but we thought he lived in a different area. So we were going to pass the reference to another area but then, the other day we are walkin' down the street and a motorcycle honks at us and pulls over. Turns out that it's David (the investigator that we thought was from another area) and so we start talking to him and he tells us that he was headed to institute with his friend, and that he stopped to talk to us because he wants us to teach him in the chapel and we start explaining that he has to go to the ward where he lives and that we would love to teach him an all that but then he says "that's not a problem, I have a house here too!" it's kinda weird with him because he lives all over the place! he lives with his mom, and his dad (they aren't together) and has an apartment when he goes to school and sometimes he lives with his brother... and it turns out that one of those is in the limits of the ward so... we can teach him! :)  he is going to get baptized! Well I am pretty sure he is, and it will be soon :)

But there you have it! That's all I've got for this week, catch ya' next time on weekly letters with Elder Sampson.
Thanks for checkin' in, all comments and suggestions are welcome and appreciated ;) (haha I don't know why but I just felt like ending it like that, Love y'all!!!! :) )
