July 20 2015 

So this past week was crazy. Just crazy. Plus it went by super duper fast. Monday: was p- day had a crazyy good bible bash with this guy and by the end of the lesson set a baptismal date with him and got his address and his name and a return appointment. It was great! Also while emailing at mcdonalds(the elders had the key to the church and they dont work to well with us because we took over the area…) at mcdonalds a worker was like “i just had to come over here and tell you guys that you two are the prettiest girls i have ever seen!” And of course sister farr and i were like awww. But we started talking about the gospel, and we gave him a book of mormon and we was like “whoa! Alma, mosiah… Who are all these people?” So we talked about prophets and a little about joseph smith. Then he was like ” i LOVE your church! But i have one deal breaker questions for you!… What is your personal opinion and your churches opinion on marriage?” So we told him that marriage is very important and that it should be between man and woman THEN he asked “what is your personal AND churches opinion on homosexuality….?” And we looked at each other and we told him together what we believed and showed him the family proclamation. Right when we were going to testify his boyfriend came in and started screaming at him because he was talking to us. It was very interesting…. But today we are going back to mcdonalds and giving him a copy of the talk “why marriage, why family” from this past GC. We will see how that goes. But also we were able to give him a book of mormon. Which was awesome. 

Tuesday: we were in little rock for a meeting all day. So nothing really happened until the night time. We had our Book of Mormon class and then we helped this lady clean her house.

Wednesday: We had an amazing lesson on the plan of salvation with our investigator Marilyn shes so cool. She has breast cancer, has her last chemo next week, just had her 70th birthday and is getting married in September. Shes pretty awesome. But she gave us a referral to this guy. And im just going to say his name because EVERYBODY needs to meet him. His name is Ronnie. People call him “big money ronnie” but he says that they should change his name to “no change ronnie” haha. But just a little background on ronnie. He is blind, 6’4, african man, with hands the size of i dont know!!! But we had a member my companion and my hand and it barley fit into his whole hand. Anyways He has the best attitude. And tells the best jokes. He cried when we met him because he prayed earlier for someone to visit him and teach the word! And there we were! But he says “im a swell piece of liver and im well put together!” Or he says “im happy happy happy happy with jesus.” Or he told us this joke “did you hear about the boy that got hit in the head with a coca cola? Hes ok because it was a soft drink!” Hahaha hes sooo funny. He talks just like those really black people ya know? But hes a hoot. I could talk about him all day. 

Thursday: i cant remember…

Friday: i cant remember…

Saturday and Sunday: We had a guy who the missionaries have been working with for 7 years. And have never come to church, the elders and even the ward members were telling us “you are wasting your time! Hes never going to progress!!” Well we kinda proved them wrong this past week. Because we set a baptisimal date with him AND he came to church!!!! He even brought his friend with him who is also interested in the church!! Everyone was suprised!! This guys name is James and he said that he would come next week to church. It took some time for us. I mean, we woke him up at 8, waited 30 minutes outside of his house for him to get dressed, found him a ride and he came and enjoyed it!!!! 
We were soo happy! Sister farr and i are really seeing the fruits of our labors!!! Its exciting!

Morrilton is pretty cool. Well this part of Arkansas is very stereotypical arkansas… Haha. 
Hope all is well!! 
Picture: marilyn and david on her birthday!! We made her a cake and she was super happy we did.
