February 6th—February 12th: Testifying of the Simple Truths of the Gospel

  This week has been pretty straightforward. There were a few fun bits, so I will just briefly cover them and then try and to better with personal emails. 
   So a lot of people this week have had some interesting questions but 2 of them were great because of the response that we got from them. The first was a lady that was asking, "Why do bad things happen? Where was God when my Mother was dying, my dog died, and my daughter had meningitis, all in the space of 4 months?" The only response that I could think to give was the one that I simply believe—he was there crying with you, he hurt just as bad as you did because he knew that you hurt. She really liked that answer.  She told us that we were the first people that had been able to answer that question.  I thought it was a pretty simple and maybe even a lame answer but she liked it. 
   The next question was fun as well. I don't really understand it though. Another lady asked if this was Heaven or Hell? We just said that this is mortality and then went on to explain the basics of the Plan of Salvation. It was really nice actually. We didn't get a return appointment with her but she was friendly and really happy that we were the only ones that could. Once again, nobody seemed to be able to answer that question.
   This week has been mostly tracting and trying to find new people to teach with little success. The Jehovah's Witnesses are very active in this area and so most of the places around here have been knocked a thousand times over by them so as soon as people see us they either shut of the door or don't open the door and hide. It is frustrating.
   Other exciting news is that we are teaching a lady named Carol who is one of the recent convert's grandma, so that is nice. 

Thats been about the week.
Hope that you are all well!
