SO THIS WEEK WAS DOPE. I WENT TO THE TEMPLE WITH CARLOS AND KARLA. No big. To be honest, apart from that, it was not a great week. We can`t find our investigators, and need to get new ones. All the zone is struggling. And so we are all sort of screwed right now. It's a tough month. We are sort of scraping the bottom right now. I have been going with the hermanas in my district to help them, and with the other elders to do divisions alot, but with the temple this week it made it very short. And we had a very funny experience with the hermanas. Super funny. And it was a super short week.
So, the temple. Super cool. We had to leave at 3 in the morning to get there by 6, and we did. Early day. We waited at the temple for the paperwork until like 10 for the session. Then we went to the sealing, where I got to be a witness. I watched the true priesthood of God seal these people for time and all eternity. What an incredible experience. I hugged Carlos when we were leaving the sealing room,...and he hugged me and as we were both crying, stuttered out...
Mejor dia de mi vida.
I would have to agree. One of the best days of my life.
We got back super late at like 7. And then I was asleep at like 8. I was super dead, but worth every minute of it. So here are some pics.
Then on Saturday I went with the hermanas to one of their appointments to teach a family that they have that wasn`t there. Well, the dad wasn`t there. So we talked with his wife and her mom. And the lesson that we tried to have was going nowhere...so we started talking and it just kept going nowhere. Then she said that the only true church can be the catholic one, because it was the first one. Not totally true. So then I mentioned the whole name of the church thing....and she said we believed in jose smithchsohsf. That is literally how they pronounce Joseph Smith's name. So I will put the rest of conversation in spanish, cuz it aint funny in english. not the same.
Entonces, hermana, usted mencionò que creemos en Jose Smith. Eso, de hecho, nos trae a algo interesante. Si nosotros creyéramos en Josè Smith, la iglesia seria la iglesia de jose Smith. Pero, es la Iglesia de Jesucristo, entonces es de Jesucristo. Entonces la iglesia de moises es de moises, y de Elder glassett es de Elder glassett. Ahora, hermana, le hago una pregunta??
Translation: So, sister, you mentioned that we believe in Joseph Smith. That brings us to something very interesting. If we believe in Joseph Smith, it would be the church of Joseph Smith. But we believe in Jesus Christ. So it belongs to Jesus Christ. So the church of Moses is the church of Moses and Elder Glassett's is Elder Glassett's. So, sister, let me ask you a question.
Through all of this, she isn`t really lending me attention. and so she was just saying, si, si , si , si...
Si, digame hermano??
Quien fue esa mujer que se llamaba católica, y porque dio a la iglesia el nombre de ella, se era de Cristo?? A saber, va??
Translation: Yes, ask me brother. Zach continues, Who was the lady called Catholic and why did she give her name to the church if it was Christ's church?
and she just kept saying. si, si, si, si,...
the hermanas are dying laughing at this point, and nobody else is really listening. So then we left. Had to be there sort of....but still funny.
That was pretty much it. We celebrated this hermanas birthday today, and bought a huge box of ice cream, two of them. And made cake. I am officially lactose intolerant. Wow. So much. And we didn`t finish it all. We made her a rap. You will have to wait to hear it till I get you the memory card, but I held the boombox. Iit was dope.
That was pretty much it. so until next time...
