Street Rangers update August 1st 2016 edition
Hey hey everyone some sick stuff going on out here!
So we picked up a new investigator named Kristy! We were walking down the street in Ephrata looking for a potential investigator's house and we started talking to kristy on her porch. At first she wasnt very friendly to us and told us she has never been religious but as we talked she started to warm up to us! It was really cool to see the spirit work on her and her warm up to us as we talked to her about the Book of Mormon, and then she invited us back! So we went back a couple days later and taught her and her daughter the restoration. She really was interested in coming to know if this really is the truth because there is so many churches out there. She invited us back to teach her again this week, so sick!
Mac is doing awesome! We taught him commandments this week including law of chastity and the word of wisdom. He was like "oh this is perfect because im already working on quitting smoking. i smoked my last cigarettes yesterday and im not buying more" he is so prepared for everything we teach him and then law of chastity hes like oh yeah i already believe that. Ive been living the law of chastity my whole life! And then he came to church yesterday and in gospel principles he said the closing prayer and it was so powerful! He loves the gospel! Can't wait for his baptism on August 13th!
This week we started doing service at a place called the Ephrata cloister. Its a really interesting historical sight of the original settlement of Ephrata. It was settled by a religious group who were all celibate...so they all died off. what a surprise haha. But we did some yard work for them and got to drive the "GATOR" flippen sweet 6 wheel golfcart to haul branches in. Were going to go there every friday now! They already really like us which is sweet!
So theres some highlights of this week! I also hit 6 months which is crazy how did that happen? I burned a tie while wearing it around my neck cause you know i only do it big yaimshayin
Have a sweet week everyone!
