Wow, I had so many crazy experiences with animal this week! They are all pretty funny!
We also got to see our main investigator family a ton this week! They haven’t come to church these past couple weeks but they are working through things plus the mom is super pregnant.
Tuesday: Pday then interviews with President Passey! It was super good to talk to President and we talked about leadership and how I am progressing as a missionary.
Thursday: Animal day 2: We went to visit a less active in Columbus. As we visited with them the husband was gone and so we couldn’t go in. We decided to go see their sheep. There was this big barrel about 2 feet from the fence. I lifted the lid and the scent hit them super-fast so a sheep immediately turned then sneezed on me! I WAS SNEEZED ON BY A SHEEP!!! So I used another bottle of hand-sanitizer. We later visited with our investigator family and shared a message with them where Christ says, "Lovest thou me? Feed my sheep." I tried to! I opened the food barrel then I was sneezed on!
Friday: Weekly planning all day until dinner... It was really intense...
Saturday: Exchange! Elder Tyler went with Elder Whittle and Elder Christensen came with me! We, as a district played tracting bingo and it was super fun! You just make a bingo card of common occurrences, like, "Sorry, I am Catholic." or "Sorry, no speak English." Later that evening we went to visit a less active young man. He is very cool and he came to church on Sunday! Anyway, we went to visit him but he wasn’t home. He has a very cute puppy that always lies on his back when you walk up so you can scratch his belly. He went to his back so I went to give him a scratch. As I gave him a belly rub, he started peeing like a squirt gun!! I WAS PEED ON BY A CHIHUAHUA WHILE GIVING HIM A BELLY RUB!!! This week was not my week for animals... Our investigator family had a baby shower and invited us over to eat. They have a horse but from my luck this week with animals, I decided to stay away.
Sunday: No animal encounters. No one showed up to the Columbus group :( Church was good! Later we had a great lesson with our investigator family! We had a great lesson about the Priesthood and were able to talk about how the Priesthood blessing everyone!
Pics will be sent next week!
Hope you had a good laugh this week, maybe a few tears at this email.
This week was really short since we emailed on Tuesday. Great week! We also met a couple families that want to learn more! It will be super awesome to see them progress and to see how the gospel and the Atonement work in their lives!
