|WASHINGTON DC, NATIONAL ART GALLARY|
You can have all the people that are coming out to DC email me so I
can set up a time to meet them. I haven't had any contact with the
Bradshaws brother or aunt Melinda's sister because they live in McLean
and Herndon. I'm in Burke.
This week went better than the last. We had a lesson with a family
that we tracked into. It was good other than the fact that he said he
didn't believe it and doesn't want to come to church until he reads
the Book of Mormon. But other than that it went pretty well. We got a
referral from a guy who is atheist but does seem like someone we can
work with. We also had a good talk with an investigator named Rocco.
We haven't had any lessons but whenever we stop by we talk for a good
while. We have a lot of stuff going on this coming week.
Transfers are on Thursday,Elder Strawn and I are almost positive were staying
together. I was hoping that I get transferred out of Burke but I can
probably do one more. On Saturday we have the Nationals game which
should be a lot of fun!
Today Elder Strawn and I are going to DC. We got locked out of our
apartment this week on accident so we had to climb up the balcony. I
will send you a video. Florida sounds like it was a lot of fun. Do you
have any pictures of the fish dad caught when he went deep sea
fishing? I still haven't caught a fish yet here. I've gone twice so
far and haven't had much success.
Another guy came up to us this week while we were talking with Rocco
and wanted to talk to us. He asked me how are we saved?...His intent
was trying to accuse me of not relying on Christ. He said we rely on
our works too much and that "works" mean nothing. He said how Christ
is the only way we can be saved. And I told him agree 100 percent and
shared Helaman 5:9 with him and told him our works are just a way we
show gratitude. He then told me "then why don't you give the whole
mission thing and come worship with us". After quoting some more bible
scriptures he finally realized... You can't beat the champ! The only
thing he could say after confounding his was "I'm just concerned
for your soul"....I don't get how people can be so dumb? And say your
going to hell because your Mormon. I'm starting to enjoy people trying
to come up to me and trying to say stuff like that now. Because I will confound
them and then say "have a nice day."
