One of the recent converts here is a great woman. No one else in her family really believes in God. But this week when we stopped by she told us her son has gained an interest on the subject, which is a major change from before. When Elder Kofoed was here the two of them a long debate about the whole thing, and at first he didn't have a belief. So there's some hope for him.
One of the families had us over for dinner, and had us teach their 8 year old the restoration. They want him to have a good idea of what he's doing when he gets baptized. The family has a really good sense of humor, they were fun. After our lesson, the mom talked to us and told us she was a convert to the church, & that her parents & siblings are anti, and kinda rude too. She doesn't know if any of them will come to her son's baptism, but there might be a chance. She did bring her kids to their rock-band church, so I think they owe her a visit as well.
We met a crazy biker guy. He offered us some beer. He said, "I guess there's nothing wrong with drinking, I guess Christ & his apostles were all partiers." He also disagreed that Prophets wrote the Bible by the Holy Ghost, he told us the Holy Spirit himself wrote the Bible. Yeah, he was nuts.
One less-active had us share scriptures with their son about why it's not good to lie. 2NE 9:34 "Wo unto the liar, for he shall be thrust down to hell." popped in my mind, but I decided not to use that scripture. He might not've understood everything we said, but I think he learned a lesson.
The ward is still adjusting having a new bishop. Another thing, this ward is lacking in priesthood, we pretty much always bless. Before the sacrament our new counselor told the ward, "We will be pleased to have to the sacrament administered to us by the young men, & Bishop Brown," (the former bishop, who was also passing.)
Also our new bishop walked in combined 3rd hour, looking a little distressed said to himself "where's bishop?"
Well, I hope you had a great week. I'll talk to you soon.
P.S. Sorry, no pictures this week.
P.P.S. I found a great thanksgiving scripture. It's in Psalm 100:4
