September 30

That's super exciting about the farewell of Tayson he's going to be a great missionary I know it.
Something cool that I'd like to share we had a sweet experience. We've tried to improve our contacts to not be robotic or sound repetitive and about 80 % of the people say I'm busy or not to day come by another time.... So we were thinking about it a bit and we decided to try out an idea to always have a bible/BOM on hand and to offer to just share one scripture with peeps. Whatever comes to mind or ask them what they'd be interested in and we've seen tons of success it helps open peoples hearts to the scriptures and also to us. 

One experience we had a guy was busy working on his car and we talked to him a bit he said it was his day off and didn't really want to waste it so he was messing with his car. So I offered just one scripture it'll take 2 min. I shared John 16:33 33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have apeace. In the bworld ye shall have ctribulation: but be of good dcheer; I have eovercome the world." Then I explained how the world is nasty but through Christ we can find peace and we asked if we could share a quick message to find out how to find that peace. After 15 to 20 mins. he said a prayer and accepted a baptismal date. When we went by the next day he wasn't there but we talked to his wife. She said he was super excited, he said he was going to be baptized, and gonna go to church.... She also said she wanted her kids baptized by us....(1 and 6 ).......... But next funny part of the story so we go by in the morning before church to check that all is well and he's asleep and couldn't get up (he's a trucker) but their roof was leaking (estaba leakeando como dicen en tejas) and they were going to put a mat on the roof to stop the leaking so they had a ladder there so I just grabbed it and took it up and put it on there. I've learned not to ask to serve people on the mission everyone you ask will tell you no. But she said she was going to come to church but was a no show. They had some family roll in and had a little Sunday afternoon carne asada. But well get them next week.
But that's about it we're teaching a few families here and there and some cool guys but we just are having struggles getting them to progress and come to church.
 l love you all have a great week.
