We got to borrow a car for a day
and I tell you it was wonderous.
Yesterday we applied the training and gave three people a Book of Mormon. The first one was to a guy that used to take the lessons, but hadn't been in contact with the missionaries for a while. We gave him our number and called the missionaries he used to meet with and they're gonna get a hold of him again! The second was to this guy in his 50s named Ruven. We had gotten off at a train station we don't usually get off at to use the bathroom and unfortunately it was one of the sketchiest train stations I've ever seen. Even more unfortunate there were a couple of drunk guys trying to get in a fight. Ruven came over to us and started telling us how he has daughters our age and knows karate and wouldn't let anything happen to us. We ended up having a really awesome gospel discussion with him and he seems legit interested in learning. :D
We passed a park and we swang so hard man.
Kemi's doing great :D We had a lesson with her yesterday about keeping the sabbath day holy and everything we say, she just eats it up. She's seriously awesome.
Dene came to church!! :D
We had several people stop us this week to tell us that believing in religion is, and I quote, "stupidity," or that we're not doing enough to help people who really need it, or to tell us that we're all just a bunch of self-righteous know-it-alls. Just be nice guys. The golden rule is legit, "Therefore, all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them." Kid History got it right too, "Just treat everybody like it's their birthday."
Peace and Blessings
