What's up guys!!
We had a pretty wild week! I'll give you the good news first.. We had 3 investigators at church yesterday!! Alvin, Diane, and Mary all came and they all loved it! We were super excited about that!! It turns out that Alvin is super solid! We went over to teach him about the Book of Mormon and he got onto Mormon.org and read a ton of stuff about the church and he ended up showing us some scriptures that he loves out of the Book of Mormon and he wants to get baptized! That was one of the most powerful/spiritual lessons that I have ever been in! The entire lesson the Spirit was testifying that the Book of Mormon is true and Alvin picked up on it too! I know for a fact that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that it is one of the greatest sources for happiness and guidance that we have here on earth! The church is so true!! If any of you haven't yet read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it I beg you to do so! It is so amazing!!
On the wild side of things, a member from our ward was taking us out to dinner to some Japanese restaurant and on the way there he got pulled over. The cop said he was going 8 over the speed limit so we thought that it was pretty dumb at first but it was whatever. We gave the member a pass along card to give to the cop when he came back with his license but the cop was taking forever!! Pretty soon 2 more cop cars showed up and the member started getting really nervous, you could tell! Finally the cop came to the care and asked him to step out of the car. We were peeking back behind the car to watch what was going on and they put him in hand cuffs and threw him in the car! What the heck!!!! Then the cop came to our car and asked us if either one of us could drive the car back to the guys house and we told him that we couldn't because we were missionaries and we have church policies that we have to follow, one of them being that we can't drive member's cars. So they hauled him off to jail and we were stuck on the side of the road without a ride back home and without dinner. We finally got back home but unfortunately I lost my planner in the midst of all the chaos!:/ Friday night was pretty wild!!
Also I got to go on exchanges with ELDER LARSEN from Hagerstown and we picked up a new investigator then. It was super funny when we introduced ourselves to people as Elder Larson and Elder Larsen haha! But it was a lot of fun! Also we picked up another new investigator on Saturday who will probably be going to jail in February because he almost shot somebody with his rifle while he was intoxicated a few weeks ago! Oops! So he's pretty crazy but hey, it's Hagerstown! Also it finally snowed!! Less than 1 inch lol!
Have a good week guys!!
