Hope you all had a wonderful week. Our week was super dang busy!! So Transfers!!!- we still dont know. And they are tomorrow. haha. Yay crazy mission life. This transfer is a really big transfer because 10 zone leaders, 1 assistant, and a bunch of District leaders finishing their missions and heading home. So President has been super busy! The original transfer was that sister Garry was going to go to Donna- BUT she is super allergic to dogs! And cant live in sister Chamberlins house because of her three dogs. So we are in limbo land with transfers right now. I could stay- or I could Go. Or sister Kreis could Stay. Or she could Go. So that where we are. I guess you will find out next week! haha. I have a hunch that sister Kreis will be going to Donna- sister Garry and I will stay for one more. Then next transfer they will send me to Corpus. To finish. But that is just Sister Wiser speculation. Good thing that President Maluenda is a inspired servant of God! He knows what the Lord wants, and what the Lord wants is best. I am just happy to be her for the ride.
We have been having some really great/ crazy experiences this past little while. Haha i really wish that you could all see the TMM trio in action. We have WAY too much fun. So- This week we found some really great people. We were knocking the door of an investigator that we have (named Letecia), and her neighbor randomly opened the door (she heard us singing... haha we are loud!). So we contacted the neighbor and she invited us to come in and teach her and her big brother. Her name is Haley(13) and her brother is Matthew(17). They have a crazy story. Their dad is a truck driver- So he is never there(we actually met the dad outside about 2 weeks ago- God has been preparing their family!!). Their mom died 2 years ago from a drug overdose. Just by how they speak you can tell the kind of things that they have been through in their lives. They live in a super humble apartment with no furniture really. But they are so prepared!! We taught them the restoration and set baptismial dates with them. The spirit was there and they were both so quick to catch on. You could just tell how hungry their souls were for the gospel. It is wonderful. Yesterday after church we went back for our return apointment and their dad was there! So we did a book of mormon lesson- and gave each of them their own copy. And their dad gave us permission to continue teaching them. I think he was relieved that they would be talking about Jesus instead of roamin the streets of Mcallen. So that was a blessing! They are such strong spirits! They just need to be led on the right path. =D Yay! Good thing that we have the right path. =D So that was a miracle. We meet with the kids again on tuesday.
Remember the Giron family? They have been a little off the radar for about a month now. We went back- and the mom has been super sick. So we called some brothers from the Pharr ward to come and give her a blessing. Home teaching in its finest. I love it when members teach and invite investigators to come to church. And while we were there Abuelito Giron( the mom's dad) started talking to us. AND HE TOLD US THE ENTIRE STORY OF NEPHI. He literally read ALL of 1st nephi and is somewhere in 2 nephi. It was awesome. He was reading about baptism and had some questions about it- so he found the gospel pamphlet we left. He told us he wants to be baptized- BUT he is afraid of the water. So this week we will be going and setting up a baptismal date for him! He is wonderful! It is crazy- When we went for lessons we never even thought to focus on Grandpa! The Lord knows. We found out that a million years ago in honduras Grandpa Giron and his wife used to feed the missionaries every week. They never got baptized- but they have been prepared for a long time. Miracles!
OH!! I Got chased by a bassett hound this week. I dang near died. So I was on exchages with Sister Price in Hildalgo and we went to contact this referral that we had recieved. Outside of the house there was this hilarious bassett hound- with its super long ears and droopY eyes. In my head i just kept thinking about the disney movie "fox and the hound'. The part where the little dog says "I'M A HOUND DOG! RHOOOO-ROOOOROOOO". Anyways- i was being tough- and not afriad of this dog. but it just kept getting closer and barking louder. He was freaking me out! So finaly i gave and started running! and So both me and sister price were running and screaming. ALL the neighbors that were outside stopped what they were doing to see what the ruccus was all about. Just two little sister missionaries running from a stupid houd. It was funny. I think we grew some abs- because we laughed so hard. After- we did go to the neighbor who was outside and teach her the restoration. New investigators! haha. So it works out. =D
OH MY. Something else hilarious happened to. So we had another referral that we were going to contact and this sketch guy opened the door. He wasn't interested in learning more- so we asked him if he knew of anyone that could use a message about Jesus Christ. He said "OH YEAH- you can go visit my Baby mamma."(classy eh?) he then went on to explain the drama that was going on in his life. So we wrote down the address- and right before we walked away- sweet Sister Kreis turned and said! "Oh! Brother! Do you have any other baby mommas that we could go visit?" It took ALL my strength not to laugh out loud. It was probably the best referral question that I have ever heard. Leave it to sweet, innocent Sister Kreis. As we walked to the car she was like. "Awe man.. that was a horrible question. Jesus would never ask that question. I'm sorry Heavenly Father!" We have been laughing about that all week. I LOVE MY COMPANIONS.
We had a really good week. We were chased by dogs another time too. WE are SOOOO loud. It is great. Everyone knows when the TMM trio is in the house.
Well love you all so much. I love the Gospel! I love being a missionary!
Have a wonderful week!
