So Martes (July 4th) we met President Youngblood! He is a super humble, but also really witty. I think I am going to like him a lot as our mission president here in Vegas. We had a meeting at a chapel where he and his wife introduced themselves and then we just asked them tons of questions. Elder Lewis and I also walked in late to the meeting, so that made a wonderful first impression...
Just kidding he didn't care at all, but the Zone Leaders did. It's all good though because we were picking up other missionaries, so we were late in the name of service!
Later that night we actually went with the other missionaries to a park to try and find people while they were out and about. We just talked to a lot of drunk and high people and tried to avoid the fireworks that were being shot off in random directions. One man actually walked up to us out of curiosity. The story goes like this...
Man: "Hey, how you guys doing?"
Us: "Great sir! How about you?"
Man: "Good. You guys smoke cigarettes?"
Us: "Ugh....No we don't"
Man: "Alright you guys have a good night."
Needless to say no mucho happened at the park...
But we did find a lady named Norma this week! At first we thought that she might have been a member because she let us in so easily, but nope! She was super excited about the fact that we believe in working hard for what you want like blessings and, you know, eternal salvation and such. So we set her with a date and she is super interested and excited about the church!
We have also started working with a less active, Noé, he went inactive like two weeks after he got baptized. We got him to church this week and are going to go see him later tonight! He just has a lot of questions, but sadly not the faith to get them answered. He will get there though.
Not too many insanely crazy events happened this week, but we did find a ton of new solid investigators, which is super awesome! So yeah that was my week.
Until next week!
