We had to drop two of our investigators. :( Lately, B has been more interested in teaching us what he believes than listening to us. He told us that we need to be more humble and that we need to listen
because God anointed him to teach the bible. It was rough. Then R, our investigator with a date, told us that he doesn't really have a desire to know that the church is true and that he is fine where he is at. Super disappointing. Sister Gomm and I shared some laughs and some tears. It's okay though! Because the gospel is still true!
Everything got pretty overwhelming and discouraging for us after all that, so we asked our district leader for priesthood blessings. I am so, so thankful for the power of the priesthood and the comfort that a blessing can bring. It was definitely needed.
On the brighter side, we got to go have dinner at Rosie's, the woman who got baptized last week! Oh my goodness, she is so amazing! We met her husband, who is just as cool. Rosie is dead set on him joining the church so that they can have a "third wedding" in the temple. :) That's what we like to hear!
We had a lesson with a part-member family and taught a woman named C. We asked her a lot of questions which led to her going off on a lot of tangents. She loves the Book of Mormon but she told us that she has been Catholic for many years and loves praying to the saints. She has a hard time praying directly to God. We testified that he is our loving Father in Heaven and that he wants to hear from us. She said she would try praying before she read the Book of Mormon each day. Whoo!
Despite the hard week, I know that this gospel is true and that our Heavenly Father loves us so much! There is someone here in Bethlehem that wants to accept His plan for them and Sister Gomm and I are determined to find them.
I hope you are all doing well! Lots of love!

and a plastic toy truck. I took a picture when no one answered the door.
We found out there was someone home when he opened his window
and started yelling at me.
