So yes I am only at week 70. not sure where the jump came from a couple weeks ago
This week was good. it went by fast which is always good. So first off, I forgot to include some things from last week that are notable to mention. There was a crazy drunk native guy that walked into our church building. he wreaked of alcoholic beverages and smoke and wanted to join us. we told him that church started in 30 mins so he just stood in the same spot for about 10 mins with a blank stare on his face, then got down into the Tebow position and started praying in some language that definitely wasnt english. then he got up and walked out and we havent seen him since.
It has been a great experience to work with all kinds of people and missionaries in the YSA and zone. Most of the people we work with arent fully there, so it has been cool to work with people of all crazies.
We went on exchanges this week which were fun. The elder I went with spent the majority of our time quoting spongebob sounding like all of spongebob, patrick and squidward. and talking about video games. so i am definitely more knowledgeable in that category now than ever! But he is a great missionary and I think it's cool how you can have such a crazy personality lacking all manner of social skills and still be an amazing missionary. I am glad I got to experience that. I needed it.
We also got to meet with one of our Less Actives who is from Vietnam who had a big concern with the 144,00 mentioned in the bible(she was previously a JW) so we went into that lesson super bold and the spirit took over and resolved that concern real quick.
Scripture of the week is Alma 34:36
" And this I know, because the Lord hath said he dwelleth not in aunholy temples, but in the bhearts of thecrighteous doth he dwell; yea, and he has also said that the righteous shall sit down in his kingdom, to go no more out; but their garments should be made white through thedblood of the Lamb."
What will you do more this week to keep the spirit with you?
Keep it real,Elder W.Chad Thompson
