Week 19 -- 1st Area -- 2nd Companion -- Hesperia, CA

October 13, 2014

This week has been pretty crazy!  We got five new missionaries in our zone.  They all seem to be pretty awesome!

A lot of our appointments cancelled on us or weren't home.  So, that's been really weird.  We've had to spend way too much time stopping on the side of the road to think of people we could drop by and visit.  We contacted a bunch of less actives and potential investigators on Friday, but, didn't have much luck.  This one guy, though, we rang the doorbell and when he answered the door I said, " Hi!  We're missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, does a Keyana live here?"  He then said something neither I or my companion could understand.  So I asked him if he'd be interested in being taught the lessons.  He started talking and we still couldn't understand him.  So, we ended up just leaving him a card.  That was pretty interesting.

One cool thing is that Saturday our recent convert, Steve, baptized one of the Sister Missionaries' investigators!

We've gotten chased by a couple of pit bulls this week.  The first one happened last Monday.  We were on our way to dinner and we saw this pit bull, behind a fence, running at us.  My companion and I both thought, "Man, that pit bull is going to slam into the fence.  Sweet!"  But, the pit bull had dug a hole.  So, when it slipped under the fence, it scared both of us.  I thought, "Oh no!  We're going to die."  But, it stopped chasing us.  Then, another time we saw a pit bull walking on this street we'd turned onto.  When the pit bull saw us, it decided to chase my companion.  It was kinda funny, but, scary at the same time.  Those are my pit bull stories for the week.

Always remember to pray and remember that Heavenly Father and Jesus love you!  Saying your prayers and talking to Heavenly Father about how you feel will make you feel way better.  Never be afraid to ask Heavenly Father for help.
