Week 9

So this week was  kinda hard, I’m not going to lie. So Monday was good. Lebonan is like 40 minutes away, we played basketball and had a nerf war. It was really fun. Then we had dinner with a less active member and then had a lesson with the Graves. So that was really good. On Tuesday morning Elder Tolman woke up sick, he was throwing up all night. This was a huge problem because our day was packed. We had 8 appointments and we needed to find someone to come with me and someone to stay with him. Well, everyone was at work so we couldn’t really find anyone, so we ended up canceling all our appointments until 4:00 - that's when Lebenon could come help us. They were at transfers and Elder Haws is training, so he has a new missionary and they have to come help us. So me and Elder Haws went to Kathy’s and she wasn’t doing very well because she’s still way afraid of her husband’s reaction to the church.  So then we went back and switched and I went with the new missionnary. That was scary because I have been out for 6 weeks and he got here on Monday. This was the first day in the field for him, but we went to an appointment with a lady named Beth. She is cool and the lesson went so well she said she would read the Book of Mormon and pray and come to church. We also set a baptismal date with her for the 13th of April.  So she needs to come to church every Sunday to make it because you have to go to church 3 times before you can get baptized. So she said she would. Then on Saturday we stopped by and she said she would be there and that nothing would stop her, so when she didn’t come we were worried about her. So we went to check on her and she wasn’t there. We have an appointment with her tomarow so we will see.  Then Kathy Kaminsky ended up dropping us because she doesn’t dare talk to her husband about being baptized.  Austin dropped us as well - he left the Book of Mormon and a note in a zip lock bag taped to the door that told us he wasn’t interested anymore. So that was disappointing and it has been hard because we haven't been able to work a lot other than Saturday, because that is when Elder Tolman  started to get feeling better.  We were inside a lot and it was just a rough week, but he is feeling better now and this is going to be a good week. We have an appointment with the Graves later today so that's exciting. We are going to play basketball with Lebenon district again today. They came here because their library’s computers are getting worked on, so they came to email and then we are going to play basketball with them. I’m super excited! Well, it was a rough week but it was only a test of faith and I know that no matter what happens we have the Lord on our side, so we will always win and everything will work out.
