ATTENTION: SISTER MURRAY AND I ARE GOING TO MAKE A QUESTION AND ANSWER VIDEO (we know it's cheesy) WE MOST LIKELY HAVE LIMITED PREPARATION DAYS TOGETHER. SO IF YOU'VE EVER HAD A QUESTION ABOUT MY MISSION EXPERIENCE ASK IT NOW....SEND IT IN THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS. Also this will only be fun if you participate...so please send questions....funny...spiritual....cultural...send em' all.
It's rained so much here.....literally Jack (cutest 9 year old investigator) showed us a video of his neighbors kayaking in the middle of his COLD A SACK (this is me trying to hid my lack of spelling with some bad humor.) .......Anyway speaking of Jack...... Sister Murray and I love him. He has been being taught for over a year now but his mom isn't ready to allow him to be baptized....but good news Jack is amazing and last week we committed him to place a Book of Mormon...and he gave it to his mom...so hopefully she will start reading. Seriously Jack never ceases to amaze us...once we went over with a plan to teach him about fasting and before we even begin the lesson his mom tells us how he wanted to fast the night before..but he is underweight and so she didn't let him......anyway......what nine year old who is the only investigating member of the family has the faith to fast?!?!?! JACK KINNNISON...THAT'S WHO. He has an amazing testimony and I'm pretty sure he teaches us more than we teach him. Also Jack told us about a dream he had of God running on a treadmill and all this rain was his sweat. goodness....I hope that is not how rain works.
Also....BIG NEWS...we have an actual, real life, flesh and blood, PROGRESSING INVESTIGATOR. This literally hasn't happened since I've been here. Her name is Melissa and she has a sweet little baby. She's talked about how she finally feels like she knows who she is praying to.....which is huge. We are teaching her lesson three this week and it will go well.
We also changed our oil at pep boys and pretended not to be sick all week...so that was great.
I love being a missionary....I love the blessings that come from being a missionary...and there are oh so many!
*Pray for me to send better e-mails because I will admit this one is sort of lacking
