March 19, 2012

Hello everyone!
Sorry about the confusion last week... my bad. But i am glad that we were ablt to figure it out.
This week was Awesome! first off on Monday we had one of the most frustrating but wonderful lessons ever.
so we were teaching this lady named Melissa. She has 3 kids and two of them are twins... one is 5 the other two are 3.  these kids are insane!! not to be rude but for a couple minutes i didnt want to have kids. anyway so we are teaching them at a members home... a recent convert Gabby. she just kind of zones them out and so does Melissa... really frustrating. we are teaching melissa and the kids are going crazy fighting, yelling, screaming, crying, jumping, climbing, breaking, dancing, flying, swearing, they were like a bunch of whirling dervishes... yep just quoted kicking and screaming and i dont know how to spell that. so all this is going on and im trying not to just get up and walk out... my companion cant concentrate... what happened there was kind of funny. what actually made one of the kids settle down is he was running and tripped and smacked his cranium right on my knee... just looked at me, and i asked if he was ok and he just sat and colored the rest of the time... anyway so we are teaching her about how their is one church and we taught her from Ephesians 4 and we talked about that and she understood... then we talked about putting
God first and turning to him for help not giving into temptation... it was actually really good. she said that she really felt good about everything and that she really wants to start changing her life and do the right things... so that was good. we then invited her to be baptized, because we got the kids to go play off in the other room finally and the spirit was strong... and it was really good. she accepted and is scheduled to be baptized April 8th!! super awesome huh?
we had another investigator finally come to church and she loved it... and said she would come back. i had to give a talk yesterday in sacrament... and then they kind of made elder Edney and i do a duet during sacrament also... what the?? yeah making me do things i hate doing. getting up in front of people is liek the worst thing anyone could make me do. but it is what it is right?
we found 2 more new investigators.... that was pretty legit!
the best part of the week was that i got to go to the temple with nana and her sister. her name is aunt Betty she was baptized a little over a year ago and about 4 months ago she was diagnosed with cancer... the bad part about it is that the cancer is all over her body... everywhere... i dont think i have ever heard of anyone with that much cancer in their body... i didnt think it was possible, but it is. Nana invited me to go with them so i got permission and Elder Thompson and i went to the LA temple with them!
so this week was great! we ahve transfers coming up this next week and i will most likely be staying for my last transfer... i will probably get a new comp because he has been here for 4 transfers and if they left him with me he would have to stay for 6 transfers... or else they would have to white wash us... i dont think they would White wash this area.
i have to be going but thank you for your patience with me...
i miss you all very very much!!
i love you and i will get to see you soon.
Love Elder Emery
