Week 33 (Nopal)

So I forgot my camera so no pictures this week. I had like 50 too. But this week was pretty good. My district did better so that makes me less stressed. 

Did interchanges with one of the missionaries who is new and it was pretty fun because he’s a little weird. It was pretty cool cause we saw a miracle with finding new people. 

For the week the standard of excellence is 14 new people. And it was Friday and they only had two, so we put the goal to find 4 people that day. Well it was like 8:20 and we only had 3 so we went to the side of the road and prayed for help to find that one more person. Well we were knocking on door after door and no one let us in because at this time its basically 10 for us in Utah and super dangerous. 

Well at 8:50 we were both ready to return to the house because they like us to get home at 9 if possible, but we kept going because we wanted to compete the promise we made with God. And at 9:00 we found someone who let us in for 5 minutes. So that was really cool.

Also we contacted a referral we received from another ward about this woman who went to church in another ward. I heard she had been taught before so I called the old missionaries from this are and he laughed. Because she is crazy. Well I want sure what to expect so we went to know on the door. Well she answered the door not wearing pants, and only a longer t-shirt and sunglasses, she is like 50. That was the first sign of craziness, then we started talking and she tried convincing me that the united states had 53 states because they recently bought Alaska. Then she made fun of the name of my comp for like 5 minutes saying that wasn’t his real name. Then she starting talking about Trump. She had a maid and the maid and we were laughing like crazy. Then we were going to start with hymn and told her to count to three to start us off. And she did in the most enthusiastic way so when we were supposed to start to sing we both started dying of laughter. And she was super confused. haha The maid had to leave the room because she was laughing so hard.

Also everything is going good. Pray for Y..... so her husband will want to get married with her. And for S....... so that his wife will want to get married with him so that they can get baptized. No one is married here and it makes everything difficult.

Also we had three lunches yesterday which sucks. I am still stuffed from yesterday.

Love Elder Blanchard
