On Tuesday we a had a good day of doing some door knocking. Then we went to the Wurtz's for dinner. It was absolutely delicious. It was home made shrimp gumbo. It was fan-freaking-tastic. I am still having dreams about that gumbo.
Wednesday was a good day. We had district meeting in South Haven. It was a really good one. We talked a lot about charity. Which is a Christ-like attribute. So I would like to invite all of you to have more charity in your life. Charity can be many things from service to letting things go to being a listening ear. For lunch we went to a China Buffet. It was really really tasty. Then we came back to our area and we did some door knocking in a town on the way back from our meeting. Then for dinner we went to the Paynes and had some good chicken and gravy.
Thursday ended up being quite a busy day. We were doing some door knocking. Then we went and saw our investigator William, We taught him the Word of Wisdom. He has already been trying to quit smoking and drinking. He knows that anything can be done with the power of God. Then he was just happy that he could keep his diet coke. Then after that we went on splits with some members for home teaching. E. Benitez went with Bro. Orton. I went with Bro. Szekely to see the Szakals. We talked to them about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It was a good and busy day.
Friday was quite an interesting day. It was all a regular day. Until......... We got to McDonald's for dinner. I got out of the car, and E. Benitez got out of the drivers side and locked the door and shut it. Oh NO. He exclaimed. He left the keys in the ignition, and the phone was left in the car too. So the adventure began. We walked back to the apartment. I walked into the Sheriff's office and asked if any deputies had a lock out kit. Not a single one in the entire county had one. So we checked the Chevy dealership they gave us a Towing co. number. We were able to use our land lady's phone to call a member. As we got back to the car to watch over it, I got a hot chocolate, it was probably about 40 degrees outside. While we were waiting I offered a silent prayer and right as I said amen, bro. Szekely showed up. He brought some shims and a hanger and a screw driver. So after about 10 mins he got it open. We were so grateful. God is so good. GOD ANSWERS PRAYERs.
Saturday we were able to see Bro. Capone. He is Al Capone's grandson. Then we door knocked. For dinner Bro. Reeves brought us stuffed crust pizza and wings from Pizza Hut. It was delicious.
Sunday was good. We were able to do some finding after church. We were told that we were lost and would be prayed for. ??How could you tell someone that is a servant of Christ that??? For dinner we had some top notch chicken. Then we went and taught a Recent convert about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Then we called it a night.
All in all it was an eventful week, full of adventure and excitement.
God be with you all until we meet again.
By the way next time you find yourself in a stick situation, take a deep breath and swallow your pride and ask God for some assistance. He WILL respond.
