nerf war


This week we were able to have dinner with two of our investigators. It was so great! They both are so amazing. One of them her name is Kim Reese. She should already be baptized. She really knows so much and loves the "Mormons" but she is too scared to take that leap of faith and enter the waters of baptism. She still has so many questions she says. And the other night when we were at her house she asked us questions over and over again. Which is good, but also you don’t know every little detail about the church before your baptized. I mean I am still learning every day and heck everyone is still learning every day. So it’s just the act of showing her that through baptism she can really follow her savior Jesus Christ and also can gain that constant companionship of the Holy Ghost that can help her learn even so much more. She is so ready. Just nervous.
It is so hard living in the mall of Georgia. Especially since we are on bikes it wouldn’t be as difficult if we had a car but we don’t and we understand that but it is so hard having to travel so far to get anywhere. And to top it all off we are dead at the bottom of the area so we are literally the furthest you can go before leaving the area. It makes it very difficult to do anything really. It would be so great if we could move somewhere in the middle of the area then we would be closer the members and the houses and we would have an even medium of our radius of the area to our apartment. That is the end of my little complaining session.
It has been great though. The other investigators that we had dinner with are absolutely so flipping great. They love us and we love them. They had us over and fixed us a thanksgiving dinner. They are willing to listen to what we have to say and listen when we do teach. But they have also came out and said we are Baptists. I hope that they can have open minds when we teach them and really listen to learn not disprove. They are so great and I know that what we have to share can really bless them and make them so much happier and that is all I want for them.

We had the primary program yesterday in church. I haven’t seen one of those in a long time. It was nice to see all the kids and how excited they were to say something in the microphone. They are flipping hilarious. I really enjoyed it. It was very entertaining but at the same time. I didn’t know that I could get so much from a primary program. Those kids taught me so much it was great.

So a member gave elder Barrett and I nerve guns for his birthday. And the Spanish elder saw them so they wanted some. The other night when we got home we went over to do our laundry at the Spanish elder’s apartment that’s where we do it. And then we started shooting each other and it turned into a huge a nerve gun war and we were running around jumping and screaming. Then it got around 10 so we stopped and quieted down and about 15 minutes later we get a knock on the door it was two police officers. I guess someone in the building heard the screaming and yelling and jumping and thought that someone was being hurt or abused so they called the cops. We told them what we were doing and that it was late so we stopped. The policemen laughed and said you are awesome. Then they left. It was a pretty eventful night. So we took some pictures to remember it because out of consideration for others we don’t want anyone else thinking someone is being beat to death again.

I love you all thank you again for all your letters and the love that comes with them.

 

LOVE ELDER ROSS
