It's been kind of frustrating the past week or two. Because we need to have so many members present to serve missions as a goal, we're supposed to have 8 a week and we don't get very much. It takes a lot of time to set them up and the next day they fall apart. Every night it's been like that this past week, so that isn't fun. We haven't been having much success. But that was just a perfect lesson. I'm feeling justified, I'm feeling happy.
Ben and Scarlet are still doing well. She's still progressing. We taught them the Word of Wisdom. These guys are both coming from not the best situation. That's why they are pursuing it and are looking forward to make a change. We went over the five things the word of wisdom contains: no smoking, drinking, tea, coffee and other illegal drugs, and she just puts her head in her hands and said "I have a problem with all five of those". She's trying to stop but her boyfriend wasn't pushing for it. So, now we're referring them to the quit smoking program that we have to work with that is super awesome and helpful with things like that. It was so sad to see her put her head in her hands and say she had a problem with all of that. Next week will be a fun week for us to teach them. She is pregnant and they are not married. They live together. After we go over the quit smoking and all of those things, we have to teach them the law of chastity. That should go over well. Honestly, she's preparing, she's trying. Honestly, she can do it. She's working on it. It's awesome. She's super legit about it.
We had Marcus set up with a baptismal date but then he stopped wanting to meet with us this week for the 3rd time in a row. But every time we meet with him he says "I don't want to meet with you guys anymore." He's the one that can feel the spirit and tells us that an angel has sent us to teach. You wish you could help people more, but I'm super stoked about this week and everything that has been happening. So, that's cool that you and Jocelyn sang together. When you told me in the email that you were going to go there, that is what I was thinking about. I got the letter the other day from the office. That was awesome.
