Muppet of a Man

This week I drew my influence from The Muppets, the song where they figure out if they're a man or if they're a Muppet, because that's how I've been feeling this past week. I've come to realize that to get people to do what you want (i.e. talk to you about bill payments n stuff) then you have to be a man. You can't be a muppet. I've been trying to be less of a muppet and more of a man, and it's slowly starting to work!

Well, I can't talk all that much this week, because people kept showing up and wasting my sacred computer time, but this week has been such a sweet one! We met our goal of 18 lessons this week, which is a feat seeing that 5 out of 7 days we didn't leave until at least 5! We're killing it over here!

Some cool/funny things that happened this week: our investigator Marlene, who's been having troubles with feeling that the Book of Mormon is true, just bore a very powerful testimony about it yesterday. She had tears in her eyes as she explained how she had tried reading early in the morning instead of late at night, in order to be more attentive while reading it, and she's just starting to really feel that it's true. How neat is that? Also, we taught the Law of Chastity to William and Mary, and William just turns to his mom and is like "But mom, that means you're breaking it! You and Dad aren't married!" to which she replied "But I didn't know!" We laughed and went on to explain that she's not going to be condemned because she didn't know, but that now is the time to act and start to follow it. She was really eager to follow it then, and told us that she was going to get her husband to stop drinking so that they could get married! Win-win situation there!

The Lord works in the funniest ways, but they're always the best ways. I hope y'all have a wonderful week, and that you'll find joy in the little things!
