Week 25 - H2

Hi Everyone,
  This week was crazy! First of all we switched our P-Day to Tuesday this week so that we could go to the Houston Temple. It was so nice. I have been so stressed lately and just getting away from it all was so nice.
  There is a guy we spend time with occasionally named M. He spends lots of time with missionaries and knows like everything about the gospel. Really cool guy. He took us out to eat at Ghengis Grill on Tuesday and it was sooooooo good. They were playing 80's music and I loved it so much. Then we went and visited some less active members with M. On Wednesday we went and provided service at the food bank again. We unloaded more than 10,000 pounds of food out of a truck. super fun and sweaty. Then we had dinner at the home of the V family. Only V. V. was home(16 year old). She is super cool and because of mission rules, we could not go inside the house, but she gave us food on the porch and then went next door and brought over her friend and we ate and taught the friend a lesson about the restoration of the gospel. J. (the friend) is really cool too. She is super smart and ready to listen. She is a new investigator that we are excited to work with. Then on Thursday we had Zone Conference and that was super cool. We learned a lot about becoming better disciples of Christ. We also learned a lot about working with members.  Something we are working on with our bishop is ward unity. On Friday we went to see a member Physical Therapist who helps missionaries for free for Elder Spjutes back. Then we did weekly planning which took a few hours then we were out and about for a long time. A young man came up to us and asked us if he could get a Book of Mormon to read. We set an appointment to come back and visit him. His name is J. and he accepted a baptismal date for the eleventh of June. He is super cool! On Saturday we woke up early and headed to the chapel to help our ward clean. Nobody came and we cleaned by ourselves. Then at 2:00 the sisters had a baptism for two little boys who are super cool. After the baptism we stayed to do some more cleaning and got stranded in the chapel until like 6:30. It was raining super hard and we could not go home. We played basketball and watched Bible videos in the clerks office. haha. On Saturday night we got rained into our apartment. We also had another joven (young man) come up to us yesterday and ask us about church. He is Z. and he is super cool. He has lots of misconceptions about religion and it is pretty funny. Two quotes stuck out to me. "If you pray to Mary and St Juan you'll go to hell, right?" and, "Didn't we start from monkeys, then one monkey was messin' around one day and he ate the wrong apple. That apple made him a man." We are gonna teach him. He said that he doesn't go to school because he works so we asked him what he does and he said, "Have you ever heard of Man-holes?"..... I thought he said, "Have you ever heard of Man Hoes"... Super funny.
Have a great week,
Elder Grimes
