Week 36 - Showing love to the preacher man

So this week was pretty awesome! On Monday we had a district P-day which was sooo sweet! We went down to Graceland College in Lamoni and played sports in their arena since it was spring break for them! It was so fun just being able to hangout with the whole district and just have a good time! 

On Tuesday we tracted all day which was so awesome! We walked a lot and we were really sore from Monday. We had a very crazy showdown with preacher guy on the town square! Whenever we walk past him on the other side of the street he will follow us yelling stuff at us. So this week we decided to walk on the side that he mostly parades on. We pressed the button to cross onto his side and started to walk. Our hearts were pounding super hard. He saw us and started yelling and walking towards us with a cross in his hands. We met him in the middle of the sidewalk and he started telling us all this stuff to try and discourage us. We just smiled and after he was done ranting and raving we told him that if he ever needed anything to just let us know, and that it was nice to meet him and to have a fantastic night. His face was priceless and we just went on our way. We have a plan to teach him and to one day have him enter into the water of baptism!! Everyone needs the Gospel of Jesus Christ! 

On Wednesday we had a pretty normal day and taught some amazing lessons. On Thursday we went on exchanges and we had a great dinner with a family in our ward! We were teaching them how to be amazing member missionaries and after the lesson the husband said "Well do you guys want to go meet some people?" and then he took us to his neighbors and introduced us! Now that is missionary work! 

Friday we had our last weekly planning session together as a companionship, possibly. It was pretty crazy to look back and see what the Lord had done in Osceola within these 2 transfers. 

On Saturday we went out to lunch with Enrique, one of the people we are teaching, and got to know him better.  Other than that we just tried to find more people to teach. On Sunday we had a great church service, and taught a couple of people. 

I have been serving in Osceola for 7 months now and I love it so much. Today we will find out if I am staying or heading to a new area. 

This week I have been studying the Savior a ton, He is the perfect example, and the more I study His life the more I realize how amazing He truly is!!! He is always there.
