July 31, 2017 - The Week of Scary Houses

Hi family & friends,

What a week... I don't remember a whole lot about the beginning of the week but that's okay cause the fun stuff happened later in the week. Let's explain my title a bit. We visited two houses this week that were less than my favorite houses ever.

House Number 1: We met this woman, V, while out tracting. She told us how her grandbaby had just been murdered and was crying while we talked to her. We taught her very briefly about the Plan of Salvation and asked if we could come back to teach her more. We went back a few days later. She let us in where she had been sitting in pitch black... While she was walking us to her couches I noticed figures in the dark. She turned on the light and there were hundreds of dolls everywhere. Someone call the director of Chucky cause I found their next movie. It was terrifying. Needless to say, we didn't stay long. 

House Number 2: We tried a former who lived right off of a major highway. Her teaching record said she has 30 cats. Yes. 30 cats. And the teaching record did not lie. They were everywhere. Her little trailer was filled and surrounded with a mix of trash and cats. It was great. Then if any of you know me just in the slightest you know I hate things that fly. So OF COURSE there was the biggest, scariest, blackest bird you will ever see gaurding the door. Yeah we ran reallyyyyy quick out of there.

We also had trade-off's this week. Those things are inspired. Thanks to Sister Harris and her advice I don't hate knocking anymore! It's a miracle!! I really did learn so much and I'm so grateful for her example to me. She's the most amazing STL! I love her so so much.

Knock Story: We knocked a house and a little boy answered the door. We asked if his parents were home and he said his grandpa was and he would go get it. We waited till this man came out and he said "My grandson told me there were two young ladies asking for me and that never happens so I knew I had to come fast before they changed their minds!!" So funny and so awkward! Unfortunately he had no interest in hearing the song we were going to sing to him or anything else. Funny though.

So other than scary houses, we had our very first investigator come to church!! Not only that but she's one of our deaf investigators!! Please please keep Debra in your prayers. She's amazing and she loved coming to church and wants to come next week! I was so so happy. Man this week has been good my friends. God is good. You just have to look for it and you will ALWAYS find it. Pinky promise.

I love you all!!!
