9/30/13 Jordon
Well, this week it would appear that mine was a bit more exciting than your's at home. Several exciting things are happening and I shall attempt to tell about them all.
First up, last week I told you about the Jahovah's Witness (her name is Sarah) that we had met. At first she seemed interested, but when we stopped by for the lesson, she was a little more on the offensive. As soon as we sat down she started asking about "contradictions" between the Book of Mormon and the Bible. I put quotes around it because they really weren't anything of the such. With a proper understanding of the Gospel, these scriptures work in perfect harmony. Unfortunately, I don't think we were able to convey that as well as we would have liked. Anyway, we met with her, answered some of her questions, and asked if we could meet again on Friday. She agreed. Well, guess what happened on Friday. When we stopped by, she openned the door and said, "Oh, you came back." She then explained that she was fine with what she knew of our beliefs, and we didn't need to come back.  We decided to write her a note explaining that we didn't really have chance to give her a proper impression of our beliefs and gave her an Articles of Faith card. We'll see what she does with it. If nothing else future missionaries will follow up; She has a teaching record. Muahaha.
We had a baptism this weekend! Wooooooooo! Picture attached. I didn't really have anything to do with it, but I was happy to help. I was asked to give the Baptism talk, and Elder Cope was asked to give the Holy Ghost talk. we coordinated ties based on this. (Baptism of water, Baptism of fire)
Transfers: This Wednesday is transfer meeting. There's just one problem, they haven't called us yet to let us know who's going where. Argh! More to come.
That's pretty much it.
Con amor,
-Elder Jordon Hill-
