Golden Investigator is Already Baptized??? Say What??? And Hoarding Up All The Service Opportunities...10/27/2014

Anyway this week has been pretty crazy yesterday I found out that I will be getting transferred to a new location. I am still not sure where I am going but I know it is going to be great. It kinda stinks leaving behind people that you have built up a relationship with, but I guess that is how missionary work goes. 

A few crazy things have happened this week first off we were giving the first lesson to are golden investigator. She is so solid! We went through the whole first lesson and the spirit was so strong. We then concluded with talking about baptism and the importance of being baptized. My companion asked her "when you find these things to be true would, you follow the example of Jesus Christ  and be baptized by some one holding the proper authority?" Her mom, who is a member, butted in and told us she was baptized 😱 we looked in the records and she was no where to be found. We need to check with the ward clerk to see if the records are just floating around out there. So there goes my best chance for getting my first baptism, but if she is already baptized then that is a good thing too.

Next crazy thing that happened this week happened towards the beginning of the week. We had a referral come In and it was pretty specific. It wasn't a referral for lessons or for the Book of Mormon or anything like that. It was a referral for service and the funny thing is, it wasn't even in our area. Anyways my companion and I went to check out what we had to do. Well when we got there we find out that the house was condemned  because of nastiness. We go into the basement and it turns out she is a hoarder!! Her basement is piled to the ceiling with crazy stuff like boxes and boxes of makeup, brand new clothes, piles of newspapers, and piles of garbage bags full of garbage just chilling down in her basement. And to make things worse all these things were covered in mouse droppings and everything is water damaged because there is a leak in one of the pipes. It smells sooo bad down there. We are using those masks that go over your mouth and nose and that does help a lot but it still smells nasty. There is so much crud that we called 3 other companionship's in the surrounding areas to come and help. We have worked on that place for three days now and we have barley made a dent, man things we do as missionary's. 

Well that is what happened hahaha pretty crazy.

p.s. Scripture of the week. 4 Nephi 1:15 As we look for God's Love in our lives, we will be able to better understand our relationship with our Heavenly Father. Doing so we will have a greater respect for the people around us.
