Don't give up

I made nachos in my chef hat. They were really good. 

This week has been good, it's probably been filled with the most stuff to do than any other week in Oxford which is good because it means we're really starting to integrate into the area. Even though it may have taken almost three months since we got here I guess it takes time to figure out how an area works especially when both of us are new to Oxford. 

Even though we were busy we had a lot of disappointments but we took them remarkably well. On Saturday we went and visited four media referrals and all of them said no and not in a very nice way either. It was hard because normally media referrals are easy contacts because they have to go online and request something from the church whether it's a book of Mormon a bible or even just the missionaries. But when we got to the door all of them changed their mind and turned us down. To help us feel better we listened to "don't give up" by Josh Groban and we went to KFC and got some Baja Blasts.  The hardest part though was when Linda called and asked us to stop visiting/calling them, she said that when they wanted us to visit they would call us so that was a huge bummer. But regardless she's had a seed planted and we've done all that we can and I feel content with that.

We've begun to go splits with both the High Priests and the Elders Quorum every other Thursday night and that's been helpful to us. Last Thursday we met two families that we had never heard of before and I'm pretty sure would have never let us in if the member wasn't with us.

Today we planned to go to a shpping center with some Elders and they called and told us President Miller was coming along too so we'll see how that goes, I'm not too sure how much I believe them but whatever it should be fun if he comes.

Life keeps on going so that's good too. Steve is doing much better and he's even done with Radiation. Last time we saw him he could speak well enough to read all the verses which was huge since he had throat cancer. 

I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that the people who wrote it saw our day and wrote the words that would be the most convincing to us that Jesus Christ is our Savior. Nephi is a boss and Moroni is a trooper. 

I am really enjoying the yoga DVD, thank you. I'm getting really flexible and it's a great stress reliever.

So it turns out President Miller really did come as you can see. It was fun!
