This week was pretty great! We had some fun while tracting, a crazy rainstorm, and an awesome Sunday!
Everyone here asks me where I am from and when I say Colorado, they get really confused. They say, "Where are your parents from?" When I respond, "Utah and California," they get even more confused and finally say, "No, I mean where are your ancestors from? How do you have red hair?" Are your ancestors from Ireland or Scotland?" So many people have asked me this, that my companion and I decided to make tracting a little more interesting....I am now the Scottish missionary! Whenever someone answers the door in English, I start talking to them in a Scottish accent. EVERYONE BELIEVES IT. One guy opened the door, looked at us, didn't say anything, and went to slam the door in our face. I quickly said in my fake Scottish accent, "We're missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!" He opened the door more and said, "Wait, what did you say?" I repeated myself and he said, "Wow, you're not from around here are you? What is a Scottish girl doing in South Texas?" hahaha. He didn't accept our message, but at least he didn't slam the door in our face!
Also, this Sunday a lot of less-active members in our area came to church! This whole transfer we have been going by their homes and letting them know that we care for them. It's amazing what a little TLC can do, because this week three of our less-active families came to church!! That's amazing. My companion and I just couldn't stop smiling during church.
Anyways, I guess the main thing I learned this week is that it's really important to show people that you love them. These people just needed to know that someone cares for them and their situation. I am loving being a missionary more and more each day! Have a great week!
Why did the chicken cross the road? haha. Also notice, the stray dogs in the background. They are everywhere.
