Monday February 22, 2016 - The one where the old lady hits on us

This has been a bit of a weird week. It's gone by really fast with the
shorter week due P-day being on Tuesday and lots of stuff happening.

Wednesday was full of the usual. We have had a ton of appointments
cancel or be no shows this week. It's crazy. Way more than normal.
Probably close to a dozen overall. Buts it's okay because we've just
gone out and found more people.

Thursday I went on exchange with our district leader. It's his last
transfer so he goes home in a couple weeks. We did service on exchange. 
We were cleaning out a basement of a member in our ward. There was 
a ton of stuff in there that we moved outside to be thrown out. The fun part 
was there was a spider infestation in the basement she was working with an
exterminator to get rid of so there were hundreds, literally hundreds
of dead spiders everywhere. A lot spiders also means a lot of spider

I've also been learning about American Politics. Since I'm clearly not
an American, anytime anybody would bring up something political I go
completely blank and be like, what's a democrat?  Luckily I'm
surrounded by Americans so I've been learning the ins and outs of
everything. I'm still not sure what's going on most of the time but
it's a good start.

Friday was Zone Conference. It was really fun. We got some good
training and it's always nice to see president and sister Alexander. 
We ate lunch with them and he is in love with us Danville missionaries 
because we work so well together. Our musical number went well too.

Saturday was a really busy day. We taught a whole bunch of people and
we were swamped most of the day. That's even with a bunch of people
canceling on their appointments. We had a really awkward experience
when a 93-year-old woman hit on us ;) We  knocked on her door and
she was talking about how attractive we were. She said there was
nothing wrong with her complementing how good-looking we were. We just
laughed it off. She wants us to come back.

Sunday we met this crazy drunk guy. We're out walking down this one
road trying to go to a former investigator's house. This guy walked
out of the bar that he was at to come out and talk to us. He told us
he hadn't seen missionaries in a while and was just started going off about who
knows what. He walked away before we could even get a word

The former investigator we contacted after the drunk guy was a bit of a miracle. It
started raining as soon as we knocked on his door. He let us in and we
taught him. He accepted to be baptized and he's super solid. He's
willing to act on it more than most people.

Overall a wonderful week.

Send me pictures, read your scriptures
