7/20/15 A Commitment with God

Weston is 4 already? Wow.

Well one of the references, A_____, could work out!  We were able to teach him but I think some of the pastors around here traumatize people because he was unwilling to let us start the lesson with a prayer because he felt it would be like making a commitment with God, (I'm just talking about us saying a prayer with him not even him saying it) and "you can't joke around with God" because if he then fails to do what God says later he'll be damned.  It was a little difficult to get him to understand that prayer is a communication with his Father who loves him and won't do anything like that.

E____'s sister doesn't have a lot of time because of her work, but we have an appointment with her this Tuesday.
We also met a super cool guy named S_____ S_______ (we just call him S_______) He does super cool origami sculptures!  He showed us a phoenix he had made (but was broken) at the beginning of the first lesson so we used it as an object lesson for the apostasy.  We put a baptismal date for the 15th of August and he is super animated about it, he even shook my companion's hand when he put the baptismal date as if it were an official agreement!  He even said the opening and closing prayer in our second lesson with him.
When we went to his house Sunday morning to take him to church he had a bandage wrapped around his foot and said he had stepped on a nail that morning.  He said it hurt to walk but if we got a mototaxi he'd go with us to church, so we did. We had a lesson with him that afternoon and he commented that his foot was feeling a little bit better at the end of church. (he also said he got an injection, presumably for tetanus, so don't worry we're not exacerbating medical problems here).

(We have to mail him new baptismal pants and I asked him what else he would like) In the packet, I guess candies and stuff maybe chips ahoy because they have those here but they are completely different haha I don't know I can't think of anything in particular I need.

Oh and that picture is from an activity we did with the primary where they got little missionary badges and went with us to visit some less actives. There were 6 kids there but afterwards we were trying to get to an appointment quick and my companion was realized he wanted a picture with them so we got back to the church like 10 min later and some of them had already gone so there's only 3 in the picture. 

To his dad:
(Referring to the how many grandkids Brad's dad has) 
Just the grand children is more then my branch's sacrament meeting attendance here hahaha
Mosiah 18 is a good one! I like the way that Alma is kind of like "so if you believe this stuff there's some water here why don't cha get baptized?" haha but with more words than maybe I'd say it. It's a good thing that we have the scriptures, prophets are a little better at wording things than I am haha
claro gracias por el apoyo y amor chao
