Alright, here's a quote from when we taught Henrietta this last week. She is so awesome!!!!! She resolves her own concerns, using bible scriptures. haha. She's on track to be baptized this saturday. That's going to be fun. :) And also, spiritual!
We were teaching her the plan of salvation, and talking about the pre-mortal life:
Henrietta: "Whaaat?! is that doctrine?"Us: "Yeah."Henrietta: "Oh wait, is that what it's talking about in Jeremiah 1:5?"Us: "Well, yes actually." [ Who reads and memorizes Jeremiah 1:5?! ]Henrietta: "Oh wow, that makes more sense!"In a different lesson:Us: "Have you ever heard of tithing?"Henrietta: "Oh yes, it talks about it in Malachi 3:10, which says bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it."Us: 8^O
People sometimes tell us we don't believe in the Bible. I just have to laugh on the inside when they say that.
We're teaching another lady named Susan. She believes all conspiracy theories. We're having a harder time helping her believe the gospel, but she really likes the Book of Mormon. She was fascinated by Gadianton and Akish. She relates everything back to the latest conspiracy. ["Wow! Secret combinations! That's exactly what we have today! Have you heard about..."] Among which are the Fed, the Government, [I think that the Fed is the same thing as the Gov't, but I might be wrong...] the Illuminati, the Chinese, the Russians, the Rockefeller Family, Banks, Pharmaceutical Companies, the FBI, cattle-stealing government agents, Big Businesses, etc. But not Cigarette Companies. Cigarettes are very American, so they're okay to smoke! Because obviously that makes complete sense.
Are you excited for May 2nd????
I hope that all is going well back home, don't forget to say hi to the person sitting by themselves at lunch or at work!
I love you!
We took Henrietta to temple square!! She is so awesome!!
Look at the awesome omelet I made!!!
Plus a really really comfy sweater that some really nice members gave to me.
It has been randomly raining... A LOT. So right now our house consists of a bunch of coats hanging up to dry. It's kind of annoying when it's early in the morning and you forget they're there hanging up so you walk into them all trying to find the lights.
I'M GOING TO MISS THIS GUY SO MUCH! Brother VanDyk.
