What if you get attacked by a village of angry women?!?: 6/8/2015

Our week was packed with appointments! I love the people we are teaching so much. It has been fun working with the ward more to get those preparing for baptism integrated with the people. So much work and so little time!
But we did have an unexpected finding moment. We were walking to an appointment and started talking to this Hispanic man who was working on a water covering. We say Hi and he asks what we are doing. "We are missionaries for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We teach people about Jesus Christ and what he has done for us as well as beliefs unique to our faith." Within seconds (and we only had seconds), he told us that he was prepared to listen to us and gave us all of his contact information. We don't have much time to find but as we are obedient the Lord will not let us pass by those who are prepared and will make it possible for us to reach them.
As for my title this week....
We were in a very strange lesson. We were teaching about repentance and well, suddenly we found ourselves in a slew of random moral situations and extreme outcomes. Here are a few examples.
-What if someone falsely accuses you and they chop your head off!
-What if you lived in a bubble and never learned how to park and a mall cop gives you a ticket?
- (And my Favorite) What if you shoot down a paratrooper in Vietnam and the next thing you know you are being attacked by a whole village, a whole village of women nonetheless. What if you get mobbed by an angry village of women!!!
It was an interesting moment. But that's what life is for! The lesson turned out alright and it's all good.
Hope you all have a great week!

I got to wear an exact replica of one of Clint Eastwood's belts thanks to a traveler through at the Cowpoke Cafe. Super cool.

Here's An awesome object lesson for repentance involving random sauces and cornflakes! I showed Sister Liddle and naturally she then had to "practice" on me. Yes. This is what missionaries do before bed.

Another picture to perfectly describe missionary work in Nevada! Gotta love the country.
