December 17, 2013

This week was pretty busy.
My companion Elder Richardson and I were flipping out. Because of the Christmas conference, a zone training, the car headlight burning out, the English class we teach, an exchange with the district leader (Elder L) and a follow-up doctor’s appointment for him, we only had 4 full days to work.
So we hit the ground running and started to knock on doors.
(as for the Christmas conference it consisted of food (some sort of funeral potatoes that were gooooood), a white elephant exchange with a five dollar limit (I gave a cookie monster with an airplane, and after trying to get the pick blanket, and the wolf calendar ended up with the hot wheels car, which was alright, it was pretty cool one), a zone talent show (we did a compilation of old zone talents that I didn't get but the older missionaries thought was pretty funny and in which I led the music and figured out the chords for Feliz Navidad [no big deal]), and a devotional by President and Sister Anderson which was centered around that which shall be of most worth for us to give to the savior and to the people of the mission.)
We knocked and we knocked and we knocked and we didn't get anything. Luckily the Lord looks after us and we ended up receiving a lot of miracle people at the end, including one person who really wanted to be baptized and had been to church once already, and a lady who told to my companion over the phone that as she dialed our number that God had testified to her that the gospel was true and that she was to be baptized.
Unfortunately the first gave us a wrong number and the second was leaving for Brazil the next day, and so neither came to church so we were both pretty discouraged about that.
Also one of my recent converts told us this week that she has been passing out law of chastity pamphlets on the bus and to her friends and had actually gotten quite a positive response to it, and should pretty soon have some people for us to teach. We all laughed about that for quite a while.
Well I don't know what else to say for this week.
Merry Christmas,
Elder Low.
