Hola familia, its me again, Hna Payne!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Today is a windy, cool day. Tomorrow is supposed to be cold again. I hear that things have been really crazy with the weather the last couple of weeks in the states????? That or we are being punished?????
This week was good. We have five investigators in church. Matias and his dad. Matias has a baptism date for next saturday. He wants to be baptized but still doesnt know if its true. (He hasnt really been praying to know) We are trying to find a baptism to go to this week so he can see one. The dad still cant be baptized because he has to get married. We talked to the wife this week and she said that she didnt want to get married. We asked her why and she just said because I dont want to. Lame. Im not sure what we are goint to do. They are of course in our prayers and fasts. She still doent want to come to church either. BUT she is in all of the lessons now. Its definitely progress. The other 3 that came are a investigators that are married! But with out a baptism date because they didnt accept it. They are from another part in misiones and only have plans to be here until the end of the year. There isnt a church where they live either. We havent talked to them since yesterday so we will see what we can do.
This week we were told that we are going to hell. HAHAH It was a guy that looks just like Tall Evan! He even had the same tone of voice. Weird. This guy was a pass along from other Elders. They just told us that they had a lessson with him and that he had the Book of Mormon. He just gave us scriptures, scriptures, and more scriptures from the Bible. We just listened. We figured that he would give us time to talk. In the end it was evident that he wasnt. We finally cut him off and asked him if he had a question about the BOM. He brought polygamy. He tried giving us anti mormon literature from a guy that was high up in the church or something and of course now isnt. He wanted to read it with us and when we said no, he insisted that we at least read it when we get home. Its soo funny and irritating because he was sooooo nice. He had the best intentions in the whole world. He was just concerned for our souls and didnt want us to go do hell. There are many people that let intelligence rob them of faith. My comp about lost it and was about in tears. She told him she at least wanted to bear her testimony. He wanted to argue with our testimonies. I basically yelled at him, (not really, or at least not in the way that you are thinking) that he had been speaking the whole time and we hadnt said anything!!!! And all we wanted to do was bear him our testimonies. He was about ready to argue but thought it best other wise. A waste of a lesson. He wasnt there to listen.
Dad congrats on your store! So exciting!!!!
Okay well im out of time... i love, love, love yall! Have a great week. Until next time!
