My Mission Experience

A Better Week

Hey,

Well last week was pretty bad with the recent convert going anti and stuff. Well, we prayed a lot about it, and a lot of cool things happened. First, we got a text from our Zone Leaders that said, if you guys need 10 more miles, we could give them to you. So, we took them. We decided to go to our appointment on the south end of town. He wasn’t home. Then we went to go see another recent convert, and it just so happened that the amount of time we spent over there was perfect. We drove over to the north side of town to see a member, and we saw the recent convert who went Anti coming down the street. I asked Elder King, “Should we talk to him?” He said, “I don’t know.” So we did. I said, “How’s it going?” To which, we got cussed out pretty good. It was good though, because we learned that he was being anti because of what  someone else was telling him, and we didn’t do anything to make him mad.
Then, we went to see that member we were planning on. When we got home, we got a phone call from the recent convert. He started talking with Elder King and laying into him, to which Elder King simply bore his testimony. The response was pretty cool, “Well, why don’t you guys come over here and we can talk about it.” Here is one of the coolest parts of the story. We only had 3 miles left for the month, and it took 2.8 to get to his house and back. Amazing! We went over there and we didn’t really teach much, but he changed a lot of his attitude because he let the Spirit teach him and testify to him. Every time we see him he is progressing more and more. It’s pretty awesome to see.

That’s the story of the week.

Can you believe less than 3 months and i will be 21!?   And then three more months and that’s it, that’s all. Crazy! Transfers are on June 22, by the way. I think I may be leaving.

I hope you guys are all well, and things. Let me know if you need anything. Love you!

Love,
Elder Peper
