This week was a week of "coincidences" Let me start off with a funny one:
of all, some background info: Elder Bishop and I get along REALLY well!
It's pretty incredible how well we get along actually. So every once in
awhile we do stuff to "annoy" the other person, but it's never really
annoying, it's just kinda funny because we're always overly obvious that
we're messing with each other. Well, we'd been looking for this one
investigator for about 2 weeks or so, and we had just stopped by their
house to see if they were at home. Well, she wasn't so we started
driving away. While we were driving to our next destination, my
companion was being funny and telling me everywhere to turn, just for
fun. So after a couple of turns I decided to be funny, and just randomly
turn on a random street just to throw him off. Well, I got a good
reaction out of him, but it wasn't anything I expected. I made the
random turn, and suddenly Elder Bishop said: "Hey, isn't that the
Ortega's car?" and it WAS! It was the people that we'd been looking for!
So we stopped the car, got out, and went and knocked the door. It turns
out that the lady we'd been looking for is the sister of the lady that
lived at that house, and the sister is a member (as well as all of her
family!) So we taught them an incredible lesson, and left with our minds
Apart from that, we've basically just had a really good week full of
"coincidences" where we show up and just randomly catch somebody at
home that is basically NEVER at home, or that we can never catch. For
example, we finally found this guy from Mexico that we've been looking
for for the last 3 months. I taught him 5-6 times my first transfer
here, but since then, he basically just disappeared. Apparently he works
about 12 hours a day 7 days a week....it's pretty crazy. I honestly
don't get why people have their stores open here on Sunday. It's gotta
be the worst day of the week for them, because none of the Mormons buy
stuff on Sunday....It would be really convenient if they would just
close down so that people could come to church... Anyways, we've met
some new people who are basically ready to be baptized, and got some
people we've been teaching for awhile who are getting closer, things are
Love to all!
P.S. we have an ALL MISSION CONFERENCE TOMORROW!!! YESSSS!
P.P.S. Transfer calls this Saturday...I'm hoping I don't get transferred...
