yesterday was super good. we went to the churhc and got it nice and clean for everyone so that the ward members didn't have to do it. and we also had to put water in the heaters again. so weird. i am grateful for heating and cooling in america. it's a much better system. :) haha anyway, church was super good today. we talked about loving others in priesthood and then we had to skip out on sunday school to finish our board for the family history thing. then we had sacrament meeting which was super good. a guy who just got back from his mission in california told a story of another missionary who got a stack of book of mormon copies from their ward with testimonies written in them and the one that he had on that day said "This book will save your life". and so he goes out to proselyte with this book of mormon. he knocks on one door and the dude opens the door and has a gun and is like what the heck do you want?! The missionary then proceeds to try to tell him about the book and he's like yeah whatever get the heck out of here but you can leave the book. and so he throws it through the door and leaves. that sunday the missionary shows up at church and the guy who pulled a gun on him was there. he told the missionary he read the first line someone had written in there and the guy said yeah my emotions were going out of control when you knocked, i was about to commit suicide but when i saw "This book will save your life" i then proceeded to read the whole thing. he was baptized 3 weeks later. pretty crazy right?? Haha anyway then we had a baptism! He was a kid of a ward member. too cute. haha but then we went to the family history thing in youngdeungpo. it was just like the whole stake put together a seminar for people to learn about family history and we had to make boards for it. pretty decent. :) hahait was super aweosme. after taht we came home and had our studies!
