My Mission Experience

A Rough Week

This week has been pretty rough. We have a recent convert who won’t talk to us. In fact, he made it a point to tell a family in the ward that they should make sure that the missionaries don’t come around any more. It’s really rough, and I can’t think of any reason why he would say that. We saw him on Sunday and we told him we would come by Thursday, and he said that would be just fine. So, we went by on Thursday, and he wouldn’t talk to us. He had a No Trespassing sign on his door, and his scriptures were out in the yard. Elder King says that he had a dream that he was talking with this recent convert and that the reason, in his dream, that he wouldn’t talk to us is because he was facing quite a bit of persecution. I’m not sure what we could do to help. It’s killing me, and I feel awful. This is one of the hardest things that I’ve had to deal with on my mission, and I think the biggest reason why it’s so hard is because I’m not sure why he won’t talk to us. It’s bugging me a lot, and I don’t know what to do about it.

We did have an adventure, other than that, last week. We were at the Leadership Training Meeting up in Moore. That’s when all of that killer weather hit, and we were all in the Stake Center. Apparently, funnel clouds were going right over our heads. It was crazy. We were all in the bathrooms and baptismal font waiting it out. At one point someone saw a truck out in the parking lot on two wheels. It wasn’t a tornado, but it was close to being one. It was pretty intense.

Well, that’s about it. Hope everything back home is going well. Love you guys!
