Hey everybody I've got lots of pictures for you this week so I'll just give you the highlights of the week.
So recently a new member was put in charge of the meal calender for feeding the missionaries so we have been getting fed a lot more! So that's awesome, people like to take us out to eat which is cool we got to go to Golden Corral on Thursday which was 10/10 except in the middle of trying to get some turkey this big tall bald dude comes up to me hands me a card and proceeds to tell me why he left the "mormon" church. I just smiled and said alright sir have a good day and threw the card in the trash. People are crazy and believe everything Satan tells them, as he was leaving he said "Jesus died for you guys, and mormons dont go to heaven." He's gonna be in real shock when he realises what he's doing and snaps out of it. So that was cool that's the first time I've really been anti'd. The rest of the meal was great though I'd highly recommend Golden Corral.
After dinner that night we went and contacted this 4 month old book of Mormon referral and the guy was like 21 and a little slow in the head/maybe a little stoned. but he invited us right in and said wait let me go get my friend he's a Christian. So pretty soon this other homie comes in (also on cloud 9) and says "so y'all are followers of Jesus Christ right?" And we said yea and they were all "that's tight man I freakin love Jesus Christ! I get the chills and feel real good every time I talk about him." We love to hear that as missionaries so we taught them the restoration and they were mind blown. We ended by teaching them how to pray and bless their souls they read straight from the pamphlet when praying it was so funny. So they were feeling really solid and we had a return appointment the next day with them but then the next morning at like 4:30 we get a text from them that basically said we are gonna have to push back our appointment a little their friend invited them to go to Hawaii with him and they are getting on the plane right now. Man Satan works quickly. But hopefully they will come back from Hawaii one of these days and we will be able to talk to them again.
Also this week Elder Lyle made a new friend named Phideoux, he's Cajun. Also he's a cat, he was just chilling outside our apartment so we brought him in and he stayed for awhile, drank some water, laid around. Hes a good cat but we kicked him out later and the next day we were coming back from our appointment and he was back on our doorstep. He must've liked us so Elder Lyle was scratching him and out of no were Phideoux freaks out and scratches elder Lyles arm pretty good. So Phideoux isn't welcome in our apartment anymore.
Sunday night we had a dinner appointment with this super funny lady and her son in our ward. They came and picked us up and on the way to her place she stopped at KFC and bought us dinner hahaha. We were like wait are we buying food on the Sabbath and she told us to get over it and just do it. So we told her we don't approve of this so she proceeded to buy a bucket of chicken for us and we were off on our way. That was an interesting dinner haha but it's okay. For dessert we roasted some Smores and had ice cream.... good times.
It was actually pretty cold this last week, we had a "cold front" come in and it got down to like 45 degrees at night I think.. I actually wore a sweater for a few minutes crazy huh!? But it's gone and back up to 80 degrees now so back to the short sleeves.
Well I think that's about it for this one have a good Halloween everybody!
