This week has gone by so fast! Holy Moly. We are teaching some hilarious people here. Let me give you a little taste:
Mexican, married to a member who doesn't speak English. He speaks
English very well and says that he learned it all from watching 'The
Good, The Bad, And The Ugly' haha. He smokes cigarettes and is trying to
quit, so we are starting a program with him that helps people quit
smoking really fast. It's the Church's 15-step program.
Lisa Segel: She's 6'7''. She has recently
married an inactive member who is 6'8''. Tall people. They are both
wanting to go back to Church, and so he is getting active, and she is
getting ready to be baptized. She really wants her husband to baptize
her, which would be awesome. The only thing is, it might be a little
while until he is ready.
Chris Hughes: He is 18. He works with a member
of the ward here and asked to come to Church with him. He has come a few
times and really loves it! His whole life he has been agnostic, but now
he feels like he has finally found the truth. He told us yesterday how
he believes that God is his Heavenly Father and that Jesus is his
That is just a taste of some of the great people we are teaching here.
