Week #7

Hello all! I had a busy week. It started off great, but then went south pretty quick. Monday and Tuesday were awesome. Monday night we taught a guy named Bobby. He's HUGE. He played outside linebacker at Utah State. But he is suuuuper nice. One of the nicest people I've met here so far. We taught him about the Restoration, and he really enjoyed it. On Tuesday, we met Kenny. Kenny is from Sri Lanka, and he's verrrrrrry nice. As we were teaching, he offered us cake. We politely declined, but he got up and gave some to us anyways haha. After we finished, he asked "want more?" We said no, but he gave us more. Then he asked the same thing. We said no. He still gave us more cake. Finally we left a little bit on our plate to show him we were done. It was pretty funny, he gave us like half of his cake. We taught him about the Book of Mormon and invited him to read it, which he accepted. We also met a guy named Carlton. He had talked to us before, but then we came back and taught him some more. He's a really good guy. He's moving to Alaska soon, so we're going to have to refer him to missionaries up there. We also taught Daniel, who is a band teacher at one of the middle schools. We taught the Plan of Salvation, and he really enjoyed it. We're going to teach him again soon. Tuesday night we had dinner at the Hendersons'. We had a food challenge. She fed us sandwiches the size of my head. Four meats, various vegetables and sauces, and even coleslaw. It was delicious. I attached a video of me eating it at the bottom. Wednesday was awesome. We taught a kid named Tyrese. He's on the JV basketball team at one of the high schools here. A few days ago, Elder Wightman and I played basketball with kids in the street. The next day we rode by, and Tyrese was there. He and his buddy challenged us because he heard we played basketball with his friends. So we did. We won. Shout out to Thursday night basketball at the Binghamton Ward! Then he wanted a rematch, so we told him we have to teach him if we do. We played again and he got revenge. But then we taught him on Wednesday! We taught the Restoration and he loved it. We invited him to read the Book of Mormon. His appointment ended at 5pm, and when we got home around 9pm, he texted us and asked us why the Lamanites were cursed with dark skin, and he also wanted to know if he was cursed because he was black hahahahahaha. HE READ UP TO 2 NEPHI 5!!! In one day! Craziness. We explained it to him and he understood haha. We teach him tonight. The rest of the week was really disappointing. Lots of people had to reschedule, or they would lie to us and say they were interested, and then we would come back and they would say no. Plus, we only had one investigator at church. Hopefully we'll see more next week!
Love you guys!
