I had my first real interview with the president this week! I swear it was only like 5 minutes long. He basically said how are you, ok cool let´s end with a prayer. just kidding. But seriously. He told me that he put me with my companion Elder Osorio to give him more "animo". That´s sort of like excitement for the work. So I have to work hard so that I don´t get un-animo. Sorry, I´m in a hurry. I got lots of things to say! haha
Oh here´s something funny. When my companion got to this area, Pedregal, him and the other elder were new to the area. So they didn´t know any of the investigators. So naturally, they just put all of the investigators in the ancient investigator section and decided to start from scratch. haha I don´t understand that, but I want to try to find them this week. I was just like whaaat?
One day this week I prayed that we would find a family, and that very day we did! It was like Heavenly Father was saying "yeah, I´m here, just ask for me and use my power!" It was pretty sweet. The only problem is that I forgot to pray that they would be interested in our message. :) haha so we taught the whole first lesson, and then when we asked if we could leave a book of mormon so they could pray about it, the dad just straight up said no! I was dumbfounded! Cause that hasn´t happened yet that they answer so straightforward. Normally they just say yes, take the book, and then hide from us when we come back. It´s pretty funny. You guys all rock! Thanks for everything, and keep on partying
oh one more thing! The other day we found a bullet in the street! It was cool. I kept it. It showed me that there are people here just like me. Cause I don´t leave bullets in the chamber. You know that. Thanks for raising me! You guys did a good job I think.
Love, Elder "Beast from the Middle East" Harding
