This was one weird week, but it was a good week.
Let me start off with this, a kid named Mobeen we are teaching told me how Jesus invented missionaries. So back then, apparently doorknobs were not invented. So whenever Jesus knocked on a door, he didn't have a choice but to knock because he couldn't use a door handle to open a door. Thus, missionary tracting was invented. I am firmly convinced this is the 100% truth and I want to thank my friend Mobeen for opening my eyes to this.
Our lessons were super weird this week. We taught one of our investigators and they were high as a kite. Her name is Cathy, and we were going in to teach the restoration, but when we got there she clearly just got finished smoking the "dank kush" so we decided to share with her a happy little video message about how Jesus loves us that she could understand while being high. It made her happy so that's all that matters.
We had Zone meeting this week with all the other missionaries and I didn't have to teach, yaaaay <3 about="" and="" as="" by="" can="" chico="" diligence.="" do="" end="" find="" forty="" goals="" how="" investigators="" month="" new="" obedience.="" october.="" of="" p="" talked="" that.="" the="" to="" totes="" want="" we="" yeah.="" zone="">
I hit 15 months guys. I bought a box of krispie kreme doughnuts to celebrate. I have eaten eight of them. I regret absolutely nothing. My favorites are the ones that are iced like pumpkins. They have chocolate flavoring in them and they are TO DIE FOR. I am so grateful for the gospel and I am so grateful for doughnuts.
I thought of a doughnut analogy by the way, so the gospel is krispie kreme. All krispie kremes have the same purpose, to sell doughnuts, just like the gospel has the same purpose all over the world. Inside the krispie kreme are all different kinds of unique flavors of doughnuts. In the gospel, we are all different kinds of people. We are all unique. I personally think I am the blueberry doughnuts. When we work together, we make people happy using the gospel because of our uniqueness and different flavors we add to the world. Just like doughnuts. They make people happy. So basically, we are krispie kreme doughnuts. It's freaking wonderful to be alive.
I played a special musical number this week on Sunday for the ward, and they LOVED it. You'd think these people had never heard a piano at all before. I am so glad o have this talent, and that I can share it with others. I am not an eloquent person, and a lot of how I share who I am is through music and through me playing the piano. The Chico 5th ward got to know me better on Sunday because I played the piano. I love it so much, it is such a huge part of me.
Shout out to my boy Jefferson, he turned 21 yesterday. I LOVE YOU JEFFERSON YOU ARE MY COAL, have fun being able to legally drink but not actually doing it because alcohol is bad for you!
We built a fort this week. Fight me.
Also, OUR INVESTIGATOR GOT BAPTIZED, PRRRAAAIIISEEEE. Her name is breanna, she is 15, and she is sassy as heck. And now she has the Holy Ghost. We are gonna keep teaching her the new member lessons and I'm so pumped, I love teaching younger people.
I know the gospel is true, this week we had something totally tear us apart in a lesson. This lady told us our religion was stupid multiple times and made my companion cry. It was a mess. She told us prayer was a waste of time and that if baptism was a requirement to enter the kingdom of god she didnt want to have any part of that. The whole time I was thinking "lol ur such a noob I'm sealed to my family forever and I have a relationship with god, have fun in outer darkness" haha
But seriously, I am so grateful for the proper priesthood authority that allows me to be sealed to my family forever. I love our current prophet, Thomas s. Monson. I love the Book of Mormon. I know the scriptures better than I have my entire life. It's amazing to me that I only have three months left. I have enjoyed every second of my mission.
I love you all and I love doughnuts.
And I will see most of you soon.
