So this week was fun and great!
Tuesday we had interviews with President. It was a little different this time because Sister Daines (his wife) gave us a training. We did a ton of role plays and learned a lot of new stuff. We also did a white hand book game to see who knows their’s the best. It was so competitive and fun. I love the Daines!
The rest of the week was pretty much the same. We have just been talking with everyone and trying our best to find those people that are prepared.
This week we did have kind of an awesome tender mercy happen. A few months ago we got this media referral for a guy that wanted a Book of Mormon which never happens. They all want a bible Ha. He lives in Glenford which is this tiny town out in the middle of no where. So it was the end of the month and we were out of miles but we felt that we needed to go stop by so we got on our bikes and rode out there and...no one answered the door. Ha but as we were biking home from his house he saw us and was interested. So on Thursday this week we went to his house and taught him. We talked for almost 2 hours, It was so sweet. After like an hour we tried to leave and he just kept talking. Haha I could probably tell you about most of his life story but this dude is awesome! Ha he has lived a pretty crazy life but is turning it around and agreed to read the Book of Mormon and let us come back this week to talk with
him. I can't wait to see what happens.
This week I was reading Alma chapter 8 and Enos where it's talks about "wrestling with God in prayer" I focused more in Alma but dang I want to be like him. I am still trying to figure out what he meant by wrestle but in my mind I think it just means not giving up and giving your all. I have wrestled with Cameron and dad many times and it is tiring. Ha Alma was in a wrestle with God for baptisms because he was not having any success where he was at and dang did his wrestle ever work. I love learning new things and trying them out. I have been trying so hard to make my prayers more meaningful.
Last night was fantastic as well. There was a mission musical fireside in Columbus that we got to go too. There were several converts that shared their conversion stories and it was just all around a good meeting.
Well I love and pray for you all.
Have a great week,
Love Elder Roper
